Double dutch skipping rope
Skipping is amazing exercise, not only does it build cardiovascular fitness, but it can improve bone density, balance, coordination and muscular endurance. Additionally, it can help develop mental skills such as focus, alertness, spatial awareness and quick reactions.
“Get active” is one of the six GFS programme themes – we encourage girls to try an array of fun, challenging and sometimes quirky physical activities. By trying many different things, they can enjoy all the amazing things their bodies are capable of and understand that when it comes to keeping fit and healthy, one box doesn’t fit all.
The benefit of using a long rope is that the girls can join in together and make successful skips a group effort, developing their team work, cooperation and communication skills.
