5 year forecast: I just missed qualifying for Regionals with only two years of minimal training with my schedule as a student. Now that I am fully committing my life to training, my goal is to win the CrossFit Games.
Why is RPM your jump rope of choice: I have experimented with many other ropes and just found RPM ropes to be hands down the lightest, fastest and most stylish.
How has jump rope helped you in other aspects of your athletic career: I pretty much use my jump rope every day, even if it’s just for warming up. I think it is perfect for improving myself as an athlete because not only is it aerobic, it also works on your timing, coordination, body awareness and explosiveness which are all vital components of my sport.
What is your favourite jump rope workout and why? I like all workouts that involve double-unders because I have become extremely efficient at them since I started using my RPM rope. However, I have just learned a few freestyle tricks and have been incorporating them into my warm ups to switch things up because they are very challenging!
