How do I coil my training rope for carrying around?

I just got this
1.5" by 50' twisted rope and I want to know how a seaworthy veteran might coil this thing up for transporting to and from the gym.

From what I can see most of the coils for a rope of this thickness are done without picking it up and carrying it around in mind.
The coils that are intended for carrying around on the other hand seem to be done with ropes that are thin and braided and thus don't have a preferred coiling direction.
I want to be able to coil this unwieldy beast up and tie it off so I can sling it over my shoulder for carrying without having it all come apart on me and dragging on the ground and without defying the natural clockwise coiling direction of this right-laid twisted rope.
If there is a video of someone handling a rope of this size I would love to see it...
