What’s Punk Rope?

Brian DSC01425Punk Rope is like the gym class you wish you had as a kid. The blend of rope jumping, creative conditioning drills, and fitness games are so much fun that you won’t realize how hard you’re working.

And if you’re looking for results, Punk Rope delivers big time. The average student burns over 600 calories per class while improving her stamina, strength, power, agility, coordination, balance, rhythm, and timing.

Just about anybody can do Punk Rope because the movements are self-paced and can be easily modified for those who are new to fitness or are returning to activity after a long absence. And if you haven’t jumped rope in an eternity, never fear, as no rope jumping skill is necessary.

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 gives 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.
