Debby Kaplan has been working with Nikky Raney on fitness and diet, and she shares that there is a way to get fit and burn those calories without expensive equipment.

Most kids had jump ropes when they were young, but jumping rope isn’t just for children! Jumping rope can help burn calories and it is a lot of fun. Here’s a video of Debby working out and jumping rope:

Visit Debby’s site ( and buy a jump rope for a low price on Amazon! It’s fun and inexpensive, but the results are long lasting.

But Debby makes sure to remind everyone that no matter how much working out there is having a good diet that is healthy and good for your body is even more important, and that will be covered in the next post.
