"I have personally been involved in 15 of Mark’s school assembly presentations as a Chief of Police and as a D.A.R.E. instructor. He connects and engages with students and faculty like no other.”

-James R. Brace, Chief of Police, New Boston, New Hampshire

“Mark’s school assembly programs, inspirational keynotes, and his personal level of fitness are second to none. His career exemplifies the model demonstrated by the late great Jack LaLanne more than anyone I know!”       ★★★★★ Coach Jim Everroad, The National Fitness Hall of Fame

“I’ve known Mark for more than a decade and have watched his jump rope performances many times. I’m very impressed with his skill and professionalism, and watching the kids enjoy his show is very special!”         ★★★★★ Greg Justice, Kansas City Kansas

“For many years the Northeast Florida Educational Consortium contracted with Mark Rothstein’s World of Rope Jumping (aka “Jump Against Drugs” in the 1980’s & 1990’s) to bring exciting school assemblies in prevention education toward impacting student choices for health and lifelong learning. Each and every presentation, whether directed to influence the elementary aged child, the middle schooler, or the high school youth, was most enthusiastically and impeccably delivered by Mr. Rothstein in a manner that provided encouragement to impact our new generations, and yes, even the adults in the class-based or school assemblies! Hundreds and hundreds were inspired with the hopes and dreams of becoming more fit and drug free for life!”     
★★★★★ Peggy Dobbs Kelly Smith, (Retired) Certified Health Education Supervisor,  Palatka, Florida

“Mark is a tremendously talented and disciplined individual who has used his abilities along with true compassion and enthusiasm to influence the personal, physical and mental development of thousands of students and teachers. I’ve been fortunate to witness firsthand his influence on students as he came to NC several times and in particular to an elementary school where I was teaching. Mark is the real deal. He walks the walk. I’m proud and humbled to have shared time with him for over 30 years as we’ve presented at the Share The Wealth Physical Education Conference at Jekyll Island, GA. The best thing is that we call each other friend. Thanks for all you do. “     ★★★★★ Don Puckett, North Carolina

“Mark has performed his inspirational School Assembly and workshops in my schools the past 22 years… I cannot give any higher recommendation. He is an inspirational asset to children throughout the USA.”    ★★★★★ Earl Bright, Principal, Middletown, Pennsylvania

“Mark Rothstein is amazing!!! I have used his jump roping VHSs (many years ago) and now DVDs to teach all of my jump roping lessons for physical education. He simplifies the jumping process for beginners with simple – less technical jumps to more challenging techniques for the more skilled jumpers. If you are creating jumping teams, he shares multiple examples of jumps that teams/groups could perform. Mark is the best I have seen! I attend a PE conference (Share the Wealth, Jekyll Island, GA) every January that Mark attends to do presentations. He wows all of the STW participants each year! I look forward to watching him and participating in his sessions each year!! Maybe I can get him to come to Tennessee soon to do a presentation for some of our local schools in Murfreesboro.”     ★★★★★ Dr.Sonya Sanderson, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

“Mark is a true professional. I’ve been to his shows at grade schools in Illinois and to keep young children interested 30 or 40 minutes is incredible. They participate and all eyes are on Mark the whole time. His message to young children is so clear and inspirational. ★★★★★ Francis 'RUDY" Ruettiger

“Mark is so enthusiastic about his message and the positive impact it has on individuals that one can’t help feel the energy and excitement. His professionalism and expertise show through the laughter and engagement of the crowd. He communicates very well to help his audience grasp the points he wishes to convey leaving everyone in awe. I highly recommend Mark for he leaves a lasting positive impression on everyone.”  ★★★★★ Dawnna Ybarr, Winslow, Arizona
