Matt Garner: A Crossrope Comeback Story Across the Pond

Published on April 7, 2017

“Daddy, you’ve got a big belly!” 

Those were the words of Matt Garner’s five year-old daughter, Layla, smiling and pointing. [Insert adorable British accent]

As a former semi-pro football (soccer) player for a local Manchester, UK team (Clitheroe), Matt had always been athletic. Needless to say, his daughter’s teasing words were a bit of a shock to his system.

“I played football on a semi-professional level from the age of 15 to the age of 27, so it’s definitely been a big part of my life.”

Matt was born and raised in small town called Clitheroe. He describes it as being the ‘type of town where everyone knows everyone, and also knows everything about you.’

At 36, Matt is a devoted father and family man, with quite an inspiring journey that all of us can relate to on some level.

Jump Rope Warmup Routine for Jumpers of All Fitness Levels

Published on March 22, 2017

What does your warmup look like?

Better question – are you even doing a warmup? Truth is, a good warm up – and in our case a good jump rope warmup routine - is essential if you not only want to minimize chances of injury, but get the most out of your workout.

It gets the heart rate up, the blood flowing, and sweat dripping. But, with the use of heavy jump ropes, you now have a lot of options in regards to how you put together your warmup.

In this post we're going to cover two different warmups: a beginner jump rope warmup routine that anyone can do and an advanced jump rope warmup routine for athletes who need a little extra prep work before diving into dynamic, high-intensity training sessions.

Published on March 10, 2017

According to Jay Silver, there is absolutely nothing interesting about him: no strange tales of far-off lands, no odd hobbies or tricks up his sleeve.

“I asked my family for cool stories about me, and they came up empty-handed. Apparently, I’m not very exciting!” he laughed.

And while Jay may not have any wild tales to share, he is a humble man, a loving husband, a proud father, and and all-around good guy. He is also quickly developing a reputation for a serious jump rope addiction (but we’ll get to that later).
