What’s Punk Rope?

2013_08_19_6576 Shawnette - Tom EganPunk Rope is exercise in disguise. It’s a playful mash-up of rope jumping and creative conditioning drills fueled by raise-the-roof music. It’s so much fun that you won’t realize how hard you’re working, aside from the fact that you’ll be sweating buckets. No rope jumping skill is necessary.

The average student burns over 600 calories per Punk Rope class while improving cardiovascular conditioning, strength, power, agility, coordination, balance, rhythm, and timing. Stress reduction is a big bonus.

Play reduces stress, stimulates the brain, and fosters connection. Music touches the soul and inspires movement, creativity, thought, and action. Community binds us together and helps give life meaning.

Punk Rope classes are often themed and celebrate everything from superheroes to St. Patrick’s Day and everything in between. And they can take place almost anywhere. Classes have been held at community centers, bowling alleys, bars, parks, art galleries, and even the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
