Jump rope training is making a comeback! It's great cardio and cheap too! All you need is a jump rope, which sells for around $9 or sometimes cheaper and start hopping. This is a great way to lose weight and easy to do.

Many of us have tried to lose weight before and those that have to know the struggle is very real. A new survey of 2-thousand Americans who have tried to shed pounds at any point during their life finds that 95% have tried to do it in the last five years, and 44% of them say they’ve struggled with it so much, they ended up gaining 21 pounds or more.

The poll also reveals:

  • Nearly three-quarters (72%) say losing weight this year is a major priority for them.
  • In the next year, 62% are planning to drop an average of 22 pounds to reach their goal. And more than half (58%) realize that their goal is ambitious.
  • People feel the biggest challenges to losing weight include maintaining willpower (28%), lack of motivation (27%), eating healthy foods (27%), overcoming hunger (27%) and finding time to work out (25%).
  • Some respondents blame the distractions in their lives, including health issues (25%), money problems (23%) and social media (19%).
  • People’s work locations can be a problem as well, as 69% of those who work in a hybrid environment say they eat more frequently at home than they would in their workplace.
  • The reasons people give for wanting to lose weight are to improve their appearance (43%), feel more confident (39%) and to deal with major health concerns (39%).
  • While 44% prefer to keep their weight loss journey to themselves, 40% are happy to share it with others.
