jumpNrope Double Under Seminar


Hosted by Vagabond CrossFit

Molly Metz, 5-Time World Jump Rope Champion, competitive jump rope coach, recent CrossFit athlete and founder of jumpNrope is bringing competitive jump rope techniques and training to CrossFit affiliates, gyms, and training facilities worldwide.

Molly, now a current CrossFit athlete, understands the athletes need for consistent, consecutive and efficient double unders.  She also understands that each WOD varies when the double under  is prescribed, resulting in the need to lengthen or shorten a rope, how that works mentally and physically and what tools and movements can be worked on to improve and increase your consecutive doubles.   This seminar is the only seminar conducted by a competitve, professional  and 28+year jump rope coach.  All athletes attending this course will leave with the proper tools and movements needed for a future of painless double unders.

All registered participants will be offered a discount on all her patented jump ropes, of which will be available for sale after the seminar. Molly’s patented jump rope technology was designed in 2006, and is currently used by all the fastest and most powerful competitive jumpers of the world! Her handle technology is unique, as it accompanies 4 different training ropes – all essential to any athlete for proper progression for mastering the double under.

This evolution of jump rope technology, also known as the R3 Evolution Series, was developed by Molly specifically for competitive jumpers and has revolutionized the sport of jump rope. All ropes will be made custom to fit the athletes ever changing needs.

The course is $40
