A jump rope is a remarkable piece of exercise equipment. It is inexpensive and easy to store, and it can be used by a wide variety of age groups to improve cardiovascular fitness, increase agility, and tone the body's muscles all at the same time. Consequently, the teaching of jump rope skills is highly suitable for physical education classes in grades K-12. In addition, the advanced skills are ideal for university courses, athletic training, and adult strength and fitness workouts. This article describes how to incorporate a jump rope unit in the physical education curriculum.
