New Jump Ropes

You will likely notice the new jump ropes at the gym.  The new ropes are color coded by size, so all black ropes are the same size, all grey ropes are the same size, etc.  Each color has its own hook.  The belts are temporarily in the cubbies in the back area.  They will be getting their own hooks, but for now the cubbies will be their home.

New ropes. Please keep them organized and in good condition.

The new ropes have a few rules:

  • The sizes are fixed.  Please do not attempt to adjust them.  Simply grab a different color.
  • Please do tie any of them in knots.  Similar to above, there will be a size for you, simply swap out your color for another.
  • Please do not crease the ropes.  These are wires, so once creased, it is impossible to get the crease out.
  • Please replace the ropes on the correct hook.  Ultimately, wider hooks will be used, so they are not as close together, but for now, please be courteous and place the rope back on the correct hook.

The ropes are in order from longest (black) to shortest (pink), so it should be fairly easy to get to the correct size.  And, once you have found the correct size, you will always know which rope to grab.
