Hi there, we are so excited to have you here! If you are reading this, you have made the decision to jump into a new workout and healthier YOU. In case you didn't know, jumping rope is an exercise proven to be more effective than traditional cardio like running, jogging, or swimming. Add weight to that and you have a portable workout that packs a bigger punch.
Our patented interchangeable system allows you to quickly and easily change between weighted ropes; increasing and decreasing the resistance. And as we mentioned, Crossrope goes with you anywhere. Outside, on vacation, to the park, beach - you name it! Crossrope is there to give you a calorie burning workout while having fun.
What better time to start, than now?! Below you will find all you need to help you get started on this new journey with us. Let's GO!

1. Get your ropes. (Read below for more information!)
4. Do the workouts and see results!
WHAT SET IS BEST FOR A BEGINNER?
If you are just starting out, the Get Lean Set is a great choice. The two different weights allow you to learn the rhythm and timing of jump roping. We recommend starting out with the 1/2 LB rope that is included in the set as it provides you with the feedback to help beginners.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT LENGTH ROPE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
We highly recommend checking out our Size Help page for detailed information and a video by Crossrope creator and CEO, Dave Hunt on all things sizing!
ARE THE HANDLES WEIGHTED?
Though our handles have some weight due to their material, we do not add weights to them like other brands. The weight is in the actual rope which creates a more effective and calorie burning workout!
SHOULD I FOCUS ON JUMPING FOR ENDURANCE OR REPETITION WHEN STARTING OUT?
Counting repetitions is a good place to start. As you become more comfortable with the rhythm of jumping, set goals by the min. And remember its ok to start small. Pace yourself and listen to your body to avoid any injury when starting a new workout routine.
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK SHOULD I JUMP ROPE?
This is going to be based on your fitness goals. Incorporating jumping rope to your current workout routine or as a warm up is a good place to start. As you see the amazing results, you will want to jump rope every day! Just remember to stretch and have rest days to stay healthy.
WHAT SET SHOULD I USE FOR TONING OR MUSCLE BUILDING?
If toning and lean muscle is your fitness goal, the Get Lean is a great choice. For muscle building, you would want to use something like our Get Strong Set which includes the 1 and 2 LB ropes along with the appropriate handles. For a complete full body workout, the Get Fit Bundle is where it's at! Each set comes with a set of handles. You can also create your own custom set by purchasing individual ropes and handles!
