Hall of Famer shows students the ‘ropes’

By on November 20, 2012



Mark Rothstein visited students at Reamstown Elementary School Oct. 24. Rothstein (right) teaches some of the jumping skills he has learned during his visit. He is a performing pro-athlete, educator, role model and entertainer. His 45-minute show consisted of electrifying rope-jumping exhibitions, coupled with enjoyable and interactive character building skits. Honesty, teamwork, respect, kindness, healthy lifestyles, drug-free living and trying your best are all key elements of his current show. Rothstein was elected into the National Fitness Hall of Fame in 2011. He established his first world record for continuous rope jumping for 22 hours, 10 minutes and one second. Just over a year later, he established his second record for more that 36 hours of continuous rope jumping. He created the epitome of a grass roots fitness movement more than a quarter century ago by establishing Jumping. Reamstown Elementary welcomed him during its Red Ribbon Week celebration to continue support for both a drug-free active life and its T.E.A.M. building theme.
