Ropeworks The art of jumping rope. 
Ropeworks is the creation of Rene Bibaud.  Rene is a five-time world champion, former ESPN commentator for the sport of jumping rope and artist and coach of the renowned Cirque Du Soleil. She is an educator, motivational speaker and entertainer with a special focus on fitness and specialty performances.  She excels at sharing the benefits of the single best fitness tool available – the jump rope.

We excel at sharing the benefits & resources for the single best fitness tool available
– the jump rope.

“I just finished one of the best weeks I have had as a teacher! I couldn’t be happier with how the week went and I encourage anyone with the resources available to get work with Ropeworks. Rene is an unbelievable performer, a great motivator, and one of those rare people who are able to take a complicated move and break it down so anyone can learn it.”  – Robin Walker – Carmel, IN.
