The Rope Warrior
Double A volleyball player at Emory University in Atlanta, he trained using a jump rope (as he says, “I started out jumping rope to get into shape, and fell in love with the sport”) and has since turned the recreational activity into his full-time profession, becoming a physical fitness “super-hero” who promotes wellness and creative physical fitness, or, as Fisher puts it, “Thinking outside the loop.”
Fisher is president of The Rope Warrior, Inc.™, and the originator of Ropenastics™, an exciting program that incorporates rope jumping, rhythmic gymnastics, dance, martial arts and aerobics into a fun, creative and beneficial cardiovascular activity.
He started out by performing in-school demonstrations in 1993, and has since been chosen to perform Ropenastics™ at the 1997 Presidential Inaugural Parade festivities in front of spectators, an International television audience, and President Clinton, Vice-President Gore and their families and at President Bush’s 2001 Inaugural Parade. Fisher also performed at the opening ceremonies of the Summer 1994 Goodwill Games in St. Petersburg, Russia for an audience of over 80,000 that included Russian President Boris Yeltsin. In July of 1997, Fisher was invited to Malaysia to perform his rope jumping feats for audiences on behalf of the Malta Energy Challenge.
