Our Why: Why We Started Remace Active

Jan 18, 2023

We created the Remace Weighted Jump Rope System because we believe using a weighted jump rope is the single best exercise a person can do. You don’t need a $5000 treadmill or inconvenient gym membership to get in the best shape of your life. Most people are unaware how effective jumping rope can be. Using a weighted rope can improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone, and overall health. It’s also an effective tool for burning calories, weight-loss and strength-training. 

So why is using a weighted jump rope so effective? Well, the added weight of the rope means you’ll be getting an upper body workout in addition to the cardio of a traditional jump rope workout. The added weight makes the workout efficient so you burn more calories eliminating the need for a long, boring workout. 

We know how difficult it can be to exercise consistently which is why we made adding the Remace Weighted Ropes into your daily routine as easy as possible. A ten-minute workout with our weighted ropes is all it takes to get in a great workout, so if time is an issue, we’ve got you covered. If travel is a big part of your life, the Remace Ropes are easy to travel with and can be used almost anywhere, indoors or outdoors. Every Remace Rope set comes with two weighted ropes, so if you need an accountability partner to stay consistent, share it with a friend or loved one. 

If weight loss or weight maintenance is a major priority for you, a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise found that using a weighted rope can burn up to 20 calories per minute, making it one of the most efficient forms of cardio exercise.

Jumping rope is greatly beneficial for improving cardiovascular fitness. The orange level 4 zone, also known as the "cardio" zone, is the optimal heart rate range for improving cardiovascular fitness. This zone is between 80-90% of a person's maximum heart rate. The added resistance of a weighted rope increases the heart rate and challenges the cardiovascular system. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with high blood pressure or other cardiovascular conditions, as it can help to lower the risk of heart disease.

Using a weighted rope is especially beneficial for older adults. The use of a weighted jump rope can help to improve coordination and balance because jumping rope requires coordination between the arms and legs, as well as balance to stay on the feet. The added weight of the rope can make the exercise more challenging, leading to improved coordination and balance over time. This can be especially beneficial for older adults, who may have difficulty maintaining balance and coordination. Using a weighted jump rope is also an effective way to improve bone density. Weight-bearing exercises, such as jumping rope, can help to increase bone density and lower the risk of osteoporosis.

We created the Remace Weighted Ropes because we believe that staying fit and healthy should be accessible and fun. Jumping Rope is not only an incredibly great workout, but it’s actually enjoyable to do. We want our community to be motivated to stick their fitness goals by how  jumping makes them feel each and every day.
