This is a HIIT class designed to improve coordination, balance, agility, and stamina. If you have never touched a jump rope before, don’t worry. Everything can be scaled. Our Rope Race class will continue to challenge and evolve with you as your your skill level improves. If you’re interested in developing your speed and quickness, or just looking for a fun way to spice up your cardio workout, THIS IS IT! Whether, you love to run, or hate it, this is the class for you. Your running will improve without actually running! That’s a win for me. People assume that because my last name was “Race” that I love to run, and that couldn’t be further from the truth 🙂
Rope Race is taught exclusively at RaceStart Training by coach Steve Gayhart. Everyone is required to use the ropes provided by the coach. These ropes are made to move fast, with metal ball bearings, and heavy/durable plastic handles. These handles combined with the speed cable, crank up the intensity level of any workout. As a result, your shoulders and legs will lite up!
The specialty rope that we use in class is called the Super Speed Rope, and is patented by my dad’s cousin, Don Race.
