Punk Rope

Founded in 2004, Punk Rope is a raucous blend of jump rope and recess. Our goal is to provide you with a fun and exciting fitness experience. We hope you’ll leave class saying:

1) “That was the most fun I’ve ever had in a fitness class.”
2) “That was a helluva workout.”
3) “The music was awesome.”

Everyone is welcome at Punk Rope: young and old, fit and not-so-fit, experienced jumper and complete beginner, as well as all the oddballs, outcasts, and outsiders who usually opt out of fitness classes because they’re afraid they won’t fit in.

While regularly attending Punk Rope will clearly lead to major health and fitness benefits such as improved endurance, coordination, agility, speed, strength, body composition, and bone density, don’t overlook the fact that Punk Rope can also reduce your stress, boost your social life and make you smile.

One of our core values is to try and make the world a better place. To that end, we’ve provided support to WIC, Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, Healthcorps, DOVE, the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, myFace, City Harvest, the Houston Food Bank, Let’s Move and numerous other charities.

Punk Rope classes can and have happened just about anywhere: at community centers, gyms, bowling alleys, bars, breweries, city parks, art galleries, churches, playgrounds, and even the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. And if there’s no class near you, we encourage you to go ahead and start your own!

You’re going to sweat. You’re going to sweat a lot. And you’re going to smile the entire time. You will feel like a kid in kindergarten again, and it feels great.

Punk Rope reminds me of gym class in elementary school, except for the fact that I actually WANT to be there. Tim and Shana are so full of joy and energy that it’s contagious.

Punk Rope changed so much of what I thought fitness and working out was about. I would never have lasted this long with any other program. I can say that with certainty because I’ve tried. This class is outrageously fun, uninhibited, silly, and motivating without even trying. Despite Tim and Shana being two of the sweetest, gentlest, kindest people on earth, they’re gonna severely kick your butt in the absolute best way!

I have never ever exercised regularly, because I found it daunting and honestly, not enjoyable. Punk Rope changed that for me. I had so much fun. There was no judgment and people were really friendly. Now, I can jump rope with the best of them and I’m STILL having the best time of my life.
