Now heavy rope training is gaining in popularity and becoming mainstream. If you’re looking for a unique, highly effective, full body kinetic chain workout and conditioning that brings a new twist to you and your clients' health fitness routine, this is it. Not only will rope training increase your strength, power and endurance, the constant motion of rope undulations will impress you with a full body muscle-toning, metabolic workout unlike any other.
