I did a pretty grueling cardio routine using one of the easiest pieces of equipment out there- a jump rope! You can do this outside, in your garage, in your house (if you have high ceilings), even in a hotel room. Get on some tennies and grab a rope (Target, Big 5, Walmart, Play It Again Sports, Etc.) and get to jumpin'!
