* SKIP TIP: Remember that there are a wide variety of impact levels of skipping. It’s easy to think that you have to leap far into the air which consumes a lot of energy. If you do a low impact skip at a slower pace you will be able to go farther distances.
* SKIP TIP: It’s very important to wear a high quality athletic shoe if you are skipping for any distance. Since no one has designed a skipping shoe YET, pick a shoe with a lot of tread. The balls of your feet will wear out much faster when you skip.
