Today I went to Eastry Primary School to see the children who have taken part in Skip2bfit. This is a fantastic project which aims to encourage fitness, improve balance, timing and footwork.

Set up by John McCormack – previously the No2 ABA ranked Heavyweight of Great Britain – the project helps children build up a structured exercise programme around skipping. It helps teach how to lead a healthy lifestyle and how people can take better care of themselves.

Skip2bfit also promotes the message "everybody can achieve". I took to the rope myself - and managed it. Afterwards I handed out certificates to all the children who took part.
