We excel at sharing the benefits of the single best fitness tool available – the jump rope.
Here’s how to get started

Check out the short video demonstration of the fundamental basic bounce. Work on developing good technique, and increase duration over time. When ready, add skills for variety, interest and creativity.

The Set Up
Wear athletic shoes and jump on an athletic surface such as a sport court or hard wood floor.  Adults should avoid jumping on hard or concrete surfaces. At home piece of plywood sized 4×6 or so can turn any spot into a jump rope platform. Be sure to use a rope that fits you. Most kids use an 8′ rope, most adults need 9′ or 10′ rope.

Build coordination, timing and fitness over time.
Very short bouts of proper rope jumping will yield faster results and better technique if you commit to a regular routine of jumping rope.  During any workout routine, whether it be weight training or cardio training, try any of these training suggestions:

Personal Best:
How long can you jump rope without breaking form or losing speed?  Stop, rest and repeat.  Try and beat your score.  Repeat one more time. That’s it. Come back in a day and try again.

10 and 10:
Jump for 10, rest 10 seconds.  Do this 10 times.

Skill Development:
Work on your basic bounce for 30 seconds.  Rest.  Work through learning a new skill. Rest as much as needed.
As you can see, the point is not lengthy bouts of jump rope.  The initial phase should be moderately challenging and fun with focus on developing your timing and technique.

Patience and Practice
Rope jumping requires coordination and timing. The only way to improve is through regular practice.  Early on you’ll make a lot of mistakes.  It’s OK! Focus on effort and enjoyment, not results.  Through regular short sessions over time, your results will follow.

Instructional Videos in the art of  jumping rope.

Our instructional videos are formatted to get you off to jumping as quickly as possible. The format starts with a full size view of the skill, at regular and slow motion.  Then we break the skill down and finish with suggestions for next steps where applicable.

I also like to include short routines and ideas to spark creativity and new ideas.
