Schoolchildren had a spring in their step as they were treated to a skipping workshop.
Company Skip2bfit visited Crownfield Junior School in White Hart Lane, Collier Row today to host a two-minute challenge to see who could complete the most skips in the time-limit.
The children, and teachers, were all hop-ing to emerge victorious, but John McCormack, who founded the company in 2002, said the idea is simply to improve within yourself - a message emphasised by the motto “2B the Best YOU Can B.”
He said: “It is great when you see the children skipping, our message is simple, we can not all be the the best, but we can all improve our personal best.
“At skip2bfit we believe skipping is for everyone but just needed modernising in the techno world we all now live in, and we do just that with our Skip2bfit counting ropes, that are fully adjustable for the whole family to challenge each other.”
Skip2Bfit is a cross curricular skipping programme incorporating science, numeracy, ICT and healthy eating.
