DescriptionOffered since 2005, nearly 1000 fitness professionals and enthusiasts have attended the Punk Rope Workshop. The feedback has been incredibly positive and extremely humbling for Punk Rope founders, Tim Haft and Shana Brady, who, by the way, co-lead the majority of the workshops. The 7-hour workshop covers a wide range of material, which is why it appeals to group exercise instructors, personal trainers, PE teachers, and fitness enthusiasts. Topics include: strength training for rope jumping, rope jumping mechanics, the 4-step method of rope jumping, basic and intermediate steps, resting moves, partner jumping, long rope, creative calisthenics, fitness games, partner drills, relay races, warming up and cooling down for rope jumping, music, class structure, and using themes for classes. During the workshop, participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a Punk Rope themed demonstration class. Successful completion of the Punk Rope Workshop and acceptance of the Punk Rope Instructor Agreement leads to a lifetime Punk Rope certificate.
