“How might things in your life shift if you intentionally choose to make positive energy a priority by skipping at least a few steps every day for the next 21-days?”
Kim “Skipper” Corbin has been an enthusiastic advocate for the benefits of adult skipping for over 14-years. She started skipping as an adult in the late 90’s and invited the rest of the world to join her via this website shortly after with the intention of starting a worldwide skipping movement.
Now, for the first time, she has created a FUN and FREE online program that offers an easy-to-implement introduction to the physical and mental benefits of skipping.
The 21-Day Skipping Exxperiment is called an experiment because that is the spirit with which I am inviting people to approach it,” writes Corbin. “How might things in your life shift if you intentionally choose to make positive energy a priority by skipping at least a few steps every day for the next 21-days? How would your relationship with your body change if you re-experienced it as an instrument of inner joy? At the end of our 21-days together, you’ll have your answer – and it just might pleasantly surprise you!”
The plan includes eight instructional videos that demonstrate skipping patterns like the skip/walk combo, the double-double skip, and the forward-backward skip that can easily be integrated into existing walking, running, or interval training routines. Step-by-step instructions for skipping on the treadmill are also included.
The minimum skipping requirement for each day is just 10-steps the first week, 20-steps the second week, and 30-steps the third week. That is because more than anything, Corbin’s main priority is encouraging skippers to experience a joyful feeling throughout their bodies for at least a few minutes a day. Of course, she always encourages additional skipping and presents numerous challenges for doing so, along with words of encouragement via a “Thought for the Day” for each day of the experiment.
“Skipping is joyful, light, and free, which are all things that contribute to a positive attitude and feeling great. The next time you are feeling down, try skipping just ten steps and see for yourself,” says Corbin. “Join the skipping movement! Be the skipping movement! Skip on!”
