Yea, it's not too attractive. Mine has removable legs that screw on. It possibly could fit under your bed, depending on how tall it was. I keep mine in the living room because I want it accessible to get to. I have it leaning against the wall. I figure if it's too hard to get in and out, that would diminish my desire to get on it. Go ahead and jump rope, it's better than nothing.
Another testimony to this exercise is that my cellulite has really diminished! I'm not kidding! Better than any cream you could buy and cheaper, too! So keep up the good work, it'll be worth it in the end (and it'll show on your "end"!)
