Rumble / Fascinating PeopleAdrienn Banhegyi is a verified Cirque du Soleil performer with 15 years of competitive jump rope experience, 2 world records and multiple World and European Jump Rope Championship wins.

She has made skipping rope more than just her hobby and she has represented Hungary on many occasions. Apart from competing, she also gives lectures and is a personal trainer and physical education teacher. Apparently jumping ropes runs in the family because more often than not she is seen performing with her sister Kata

Although some might think that rope jumping is an activity for children, it is actually used by many adults, too, as a part of their exercise routine. Studies have shown that rope jumping is so effective that a 10 minute rope workout can burn as many calories as jogging at an eight-minute-per-mile pace. The skipping rope is one of the most widely used warm up equipment, but it’s especially associated with boxers. They use the ropes before they start punching the bags because the workout enables a good blood flow and warms up their muscles preventing a tear or a bruise later on.
