How your childhood hobby became an adult fitness routine?

As an adult every time I saw kids jumping my heart would flutter and I would want to jump in and some part of me knew I wasn't alone. As a world champion in Double Dutch I have the skill to teach anyone in less than one min. So I had this idea of Double Dutch Aerobics in my head for a while and I would express it to my husband (then boyfriend ) he thought it was cool. At an event for the YMCA where i was already teaching fitness he saw me teaching people in less than 1 min and then he realized that my skill was beyond what he had comprehended he pushed me to start the class and ..that’s how it all started.

What age did you start Double Dutch?  I starting jumping Double Dutch at 4.
