A gizmo has just launched on Kickstarter that promises an entirely new jump rope training experience. Tally Jump counts the number of jumps during your training sessions allowing you to focus on pushing yourself and improving your scores.
Designed by Tori Boggs, multiple World Jump Rope Champion and world record holder, Tally Jump is extremely easy to use. Just place the lightweight (13 grams) pod under your shoelaces, start the app, select the session duration and target score and start jumping! Best of all, there is no need to change your routine. You can still use your old jump rope and workout as you usually do.

The sensor counts your jumps for speed, single jumps, double-unders and triple-unders with different durations. As you jump, the screen color of the app changes indicating how close you are to your target score. When the screen turns green, you are close to your goal. When its red, its time to ramp up your jumps.
Tally Jump also tracks your mistakes during training, in essence acting as a virtual coach. You can use sound and metronome functions to enhance your workout and the app will keep a historical overview of your sessions.
Finally, there is also a social aspect. This includes leaderboards showing how you stack up against your friends, comparing rankings for weeks, months and overall.
