WHY WE LOVE IT
Jump ropes date back to ancient Egyptian times. In the early 20th century, boxers began using ropes to improve conditioning, leg strength and foot speed. When Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1963, skipping rope to the song “Night Train”, the jump rope gained in popularity and became a staple of every boxer’s routine. MVP's Heritage Jump Rope is a true testament to this history: wooden handles, leather rope, and ball bearings to increase speed and reduce wear on the rope. This beautiful jump rope works both for intense training or casual morning exercise.
