This was an ad that appeared last year for the XBOX 360. It’s got a great pace and energy about it that I love. I like how they incorporate so many different elements in rapid succession. They start with Chinese Wheel, focus mostly on Double Dutch, and then end with some Traveling. Very cool.
Next week I am traveling Dallas to be a judge for the USA Jumprope All-Star Team tryouts. This is a really exciting opportunity for me. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see some old friends and make new ones. I can’t wait to see what this next generation of jumpers can do. I know they will have invented things that I never dreamed of when I was jumping just a few short years ago. Here is a video of the previous All-Star team in action. These kids are simply amazing.
Once upon a time, I was a world class jumper in the sport of Jump Rope. I traveled all over the world to perform and compete. I won several national championship titles and one world championship title. I even started my own team in college with the help of some good friends. Then I graduated college and got a desk job. Let’s just say I’ve let my skills atrophy a little since then.
Now I’m looking to get back into Jump Rope. I miss it. It was a ton of fun and kept me in great shape. I need to drop some weight and get back in good shape, and jumping rope is the best way I know to do that. I’ll let you know how that goes.
My goal with this site is to let everyone know how cool this sport is, and how good it can be for your health and physical fitness. If you have never seen it before, prepare to be amazed. I’ll try to collect as many videos as I can from around the web to show you how amazing Jump Rope is.
