Athletics have always been a big part of my life.
When I was 9 we moved to a new town, and I was introduced to jump rope – the professional kind.
We were the Palpitating Panthers, and I learned moves, routines and ways to work a rope I never thought possible. I still think of those days fondly, and when I moved back to LA about three years ago, I picked my ropes back up and started jumping again.
The video above showcases some of my favorite tricks, and the video below is a good overall look at the sport and tips for beginners.
Now, get jumping!
