Punk Rope Challenge for Schools workshop

Punk Rope Challenge for Schools

Improving body, mind, and spirit

Some of the earliest fans of Punk Rope were teachers. After a tough day in the classroom, Punk Rope provided them with an opportunity to get a good workout, kick back, and destress. So it was no surprise when teachers started asking for a similar a program for children.

The Punk Rope Challenge for Schools program is designed to boost overall fitness while emphasizing the importance of teamwork, play, and inclusion. The underlying philosophy of the program is that variety is not only the spice of life, but also the spice of fitness.

Since launching the Punk Rope Challenge, we’ve offered workshops at public schools throughout New York City, as well as at a number of non-profit organizations including HealthCorps, The After School Corporation (TASC), and CHALK.

The workshop is 2 hours long, costs $500, and can accommodate up to 10 participants. Included with the fee is a jump rope and manual (E-book).
