Jumping rope is not just a warmup it is a great sport and activity in itself. There are even official organizations such as the Amateur Athletic Union with long established rules and regulations https://image.aausports.org/handbooks/jump_rope/JumpRope.pdf.

There are exhibitions, teams, leagues, singles competitions, team competitions, national and international competitions; everything that you would expect an official sport to have. It has observer status at the Global Association of International Sports Federation and been recognized as a sport by half the countries needed to become an official Olympic sport. Is Jump Rope a Sport? - Here's What to Know | Elite SRS

I'm pretty sure there is no international association of stair stepers and that is supported in Strava so why not jump rope?

This would be a great addition. My garmin watch records all the stats I'm interested in and I can see it in the .fit file. When uploaded to Strava, unfortunately, all those juicy metrics are lost.

My Crossrope jump rope is Bluetooth connected and they have an app too. Please Stava, add jump rope.

What was the outcome of the voting to include jumprope in Strava? How many kudos are needed?

Who knows what the outcome is, when is Strava going to add Jump rope?! 

I would sign up again for Strava if jump rope was an activity but without that it is not worth it to me, I only need the free subscription- 

Strava used to be such a great app - now it basically sucks

Ah haha - at Mr nanda - they don’t tell us what is necessary to add an activity. It is very frustrating I think

Hi
several years ago I wrote to support to add it
I even gave them tables and a system for calculating how to make km from a jump rope
they are still not up to it

Lots of connected apps around jumping rope and integration or manual support with a category would be great.

I'm so disappointed this hasn't been added yet. I'm a new user that primarily jumps rope for cardio.

@DTStrava do you see number of jumps on Garmin dashboard? ( I mean the 3 circles of data pulled )

Is there a Strava representative in this group? Seems no one is listening.....

Why do I need to make visuals as to why jump rope should be added ? It’s obvious that it’s one of the best cardio exercise- 

pickle ball is a new sport and it is added - 

jump rope has been around for ever 

PLEASE ADD JUMP ROPE FINALLY
