Crossrope’s “Get Lean” bundle for a versatile solution that’ll please beginners looking for a low-impact cardio supplement and experienced fitness folk hoping to kick it up a notch with intense strength training.


Included: a 1/2-pound and 1/4-pound rope, fast clip handle system, carry pouch, free access to app for guided workouts

Promising review: “My favorite part of these ropes besides durability? Responsiveness. I don’t hear/see many people speaking about this, but only speed ropes come close to this rope’s response. I typically dance while jumping rope for a better workout and making it more fun and varied. This means I have to change beats and the rope needs to be responsive to those needs. Those bungee-style ropes are horrid for this.

The parts are high-quality and I even jump in rain sometimes, which means that the stainless-steel has come in handy. Is this worth $88? Yes… quality costs money. It works just as well as other high end jump ropes, but the quality just blows everything else out of the water.” —D. Young

Get it from Amazon for $88+ (available in four sizes).


An adjustable Everlast speed rope for a total-body workout that’ll accommodate people of all heights.


Includes: removable 0.4-pound weights in handles, 120-day warranty

Promising review: “I’m a trainer so I have a lot of experience with ropes. I find this to be well-made and easy to adjust length.” —Fazio7

Get it from Amazon for $22.17.


A durable Fitskuad jump rope with enough add-ons to turn you into a devout member of the skuad.

Includes: full one-year limited warranty, a 120-day replacement guarantee, extra jump rope speed cable, the ebook The Secret To Mastering Double Unders, and a carrying bag

Promising review: “Awesome jump rope. Build quality is outstanding. The jump rope itself is actually a metal wire. Nice padding on the handles. It has a nice weight to it. It takes very little effort to actually spin the rope. This way you can concentrate more on jumping :).” —ciprian cosma

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four colors).


A ropeless Benvo jump rope that’ll make exercising in tight spaces much easier.


Includes: 30-day warranty, carrying bag

Promising review: “I purchased the ropeless jump rope for our Parkinson’s Boxing class thinking it would be a good option for those who are not able to use a regular jump rope. I didn’t realize what a great dexterity workout it would be! It is great for PD because it forces movement on the side that is affected by tremors or rigidity, without the hazard of navigating over a regular jump rope. I tried it myself (I don’t have PD) for our 2-minute round. Even with just weight shifting and moving the arms as if swinging the rope, I got my heart rate up!” —Kris

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.


A portable and compact weighted Jakago jump rope ideal for thigh and forearm strengthening, leg training, endurance training, and more.


Includes: carrying bag

Promising review: “Really quality product! Easy to set up the length you want and great solid weighted handles. Really glad I ordered this especially with the COVID-19 quarantine and not having many things at home to work out.” —rebecca perry

Get it from Amazon for $42.99 (available in four colors).


A Sonic Boom high-speed rope you’ll love if you’re set on 100% tangle-free spinning.

Includes: Lifetime warranty, two adjustable, 10-foot polymer-coated speed cables, and carrying bag

Promising review: “As an athlete who uses jumping rope on a regular basis to warm up or even a quick work out if time is limited, I appreciate a really good and durable rope. Epitomie Fitness has done it again and even outdone themselves with their latest creation with the Sonic Boom Mach 2 Speed Rope. I liked their original Sonic Boom Speed Rope, but it had its limitations. This time they have improved upon its predecessor by making the handles even more ergonomically correct and the ability to store excess rope length within the handles, doing away with having to pre-cut the rope for proper sizing. The handles feel well-balanced and the rope spins freely making the revolutions of the rope feel smoother and smoother as you get more efficient in your jump rope workouts. Even though double unders aren’t my thing I completely agree with the company’s claim that this rope will improve your double unders if that is a goal you are working towards.” —Art Trubee

Get it from Amazon for $33.86.


A fully adjustable Redipo jump rope with padded foam handles so your hands never get sore.


Includes: 100% money-back guarantee

Promising review: “This is a really solid piece of equipment. The handles are heavy, which will really work your arms if you go for a while, while the rope itself is super light and really whips around. The length is great, as I’m 6-foot-5 and jump ropes are often way too short for me and I have a pain getting it low enough to jump. I don’t think you can go wrong if you’re looking for a jump rope for workout purposes.” —Joshua M. Wexler

Get it from Amazon for $17.59.


A WOD Nation jump rope if you have a need for speed (and something that’ll hold up for years).


Includes: “100% lifetime guarantee,” extra cable, replacement hardware, and a nylon drawstring carrying bag

Promising review: “Solid product. I’ve used it every day since getting it and it works much better than other speed ropes I have used before. The heavy rope makes double unders nice and when doing circuits you can really feel your upper body working it. I haven’t used the light rope yet but I’m sure it gets whipping as well. The handles are very nice and don’t get slick with sweaty hands. The rope is easily adjustable and seems durable. I have been using it outside and it is obviously worn but hasn’t shown any signs of cheap construction in my opinion.” —Preston spence

Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in three colors)


A Survival and Cross jump rope with light handlebars and twist-free coated steel cables to really master your double unders.

Includes: lifetime warranty, extra hardware, and carrying bag

Promising review: “I bought this rope to work on my double unders at Crossfit. It is good quality and easy to set up. You will need wire cutters to shorten it, but it is simple to do and the company has a video tutorial on their website. The rope itself is a cable with a plastic coating. I jump on a rubber mat so I’ve had no issues with it fraying. I would probably stay away from rough concrete. After ordering this particular rope, I decided to order another item directly from their website.” —Richkev

Get it from Amazon for $16.


And a XYLsports jump rope for a high-quality budget pick that gets the job done.


Includes: lifetime warranty

Promising review: “This jump rope is excellent! Being adjustable was a big selling point to me. I followed the instructions and was able to get it to the perfect length for me. I use it almost every day and I really enjoy it. More fun than work. I highly recommend this product!” —KAT

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
