Why is it a good deal?

Finding a form of exercise that works for you is priceless, but home gym equipment can cost a pretty penny. With that in mind, $13 is a great price for a fitness tool that doesn't require much space and is travel-friendly, so you can get your sweat on wherever your adventures take you.

Why do I need this?

Made of a comfortable, sweat-resistant elastic sponge, the Benvo's handles hold removable weights. The attached mini-ropes and balls are designed for fast, smooth action.

Fans of all ages and fitness levels are raving about this workout-anywhere tool. Jumping is not only great for fat-burning cardio and HIIT workouts, but also for improving bone density. You don't need tall ceilings in your home to use it — plus, it's great if you have pets running around and don't want to swing a big rope.

What reviewers say:

Fed up with their stationary bike, this shopper switched to Benvo: "I'm doing this with interval training ... My Fitbit showed my heartbeat at 150 bpm and I sweated a ton. This might be the greatest cardio equipment on Amazon. Works your entire body, super small and super cheap."

Another fan shared: "This makes getting in a quick two- to three-minute cardio burst so easy! I am used to a longer workout session, but after reading that short and intense [workouts] are almost as good or better than longer I ordered this ... This also makes getting my steps in very easy, plus jumping rope is great to strengthen bones as you age, so win-win!"

This reviewer admits using a ropeless jump rope isn't quite like riding a bike. "Definitely a learning curve, but giving it a shot. The absence of a rope will take some getting used to ... but I also have to admit I haven't used a jump rope in maybe 50 years! Not having a rope to trip on should be a lot safer."

A final fan wrote: "I purchased this because I'm clumsy and easily trip over things ... I'm so glad I found [this] because in between workouts on HIIT days, I like to keep that heart rate up and this is a great way to do so without worrying about tangling myself in rope or falling over and hurting myself."

Hop to it with a little bit of portable cardio — the small handle weights are removable, so you can opt for an extra burn or take it easy.
