The Wodrobe is proud to announce that we are now retailers for Cyclone Speed Ropes. These jump ropes/skipping ropes have been designed by Cyclone Speed Rope founder, Matt Clark and they include a number of innovative features and colours especially for us here in Australia.
These skipping ropes have a lightweight handle that won't crack or break and there are no moving parts to pop-off mid-WOD. The cable is coated and made of high quality material ensuring you get maximum speed and comfort.
The Wodrobe has custom ordered the Southern Cross rope that is hand-made in the famous green and gold and the handle stamped with the iconic constellation. This rope is exclusive to The Wodrobe, Australia and great addition for any functional fitness athlete, especially for competitions.
We also have ropes hand-made in the Wodrobe colours of black and red and a feminine choice of pink, purple and blue; both of which have the Wodrobe stamp on one handle.
These ropes are simply consistently smooth and fast and whether you're a pro or a beginner they will help take you to the next level and master double unders. We believe that they are the best skipping rope/jump rope on the market and the perfect balance of quality and price.

I recently visited a box in America bearing the slogan ‘changing lives through CrossFit’. Simple, yes. Cliché, yes. True, absolutely.
I’m lucky enough to be in a coaching role where I can not only reflect on the change CrossFit has made in my own life, but also the change made in the lives of the 100 or so people who walk through the CrossFit Wandsworth doors every day. It’s also intriguing to me to see a beginner progress, knowing that there are so many different facets to CrossFit and wonder which part it is for them that they find most worthy of the title ‘life-changing’.

When I talk about 'controllables' what I'm really referring to are the things or the factors in life that we have immediate and direct control of.
What happens when you live your life controlling the controllables is you feel empowered, responsible and grateful for the outcomes you create and generally happier about life and your part in it. This is due to you taking charge of what you can, focusing only on what matters and what you can do to move you towards the things you desire and value.
What happens when people rely on the uncontrollables is they have expectations of others to fulfill their needs and desires. If you are stuck in a rut and focusing on the uncontrollables, you probably expect the world to provide for you and serve you and when things don't magically fall into place, you blame other people for your lack of direction and results.
It's a trap that we all fall into at times.
