    (#84) Fabian Schön - Learning Combo Patterns, Avoiding Common Pitfalls, And Achieving Mental Freedom

    Fabian Schon is a long time jumper with a significant history in fitness coaching, both online and in person. Our conversation is, in a lot of ways, a masterclass on accidental pitfalls and silent bad habits that can develop based on how you start jumping. So if you’re new to jump rope you should REALLY dial into this one to save yourself a lot of headache. And even if you’ve been jumping for a while you’ll still dig the details.
    We get into so much, including videos that inspired Fabian to learn freestyle, the process of undoing bad habits that we learned on accident, a few of the most common bad habits that jumpers tend to learn, having practical and attainable expectations for learning freestyle skills, coaching versus giving tips, achieving mental freedom with jump rope, and a whole lot more.

    (#83) Alex “Onlyjuanalex” - Defining & Maintaining Consistency, Finding Your Jump Rope Tribe, And The Value Of Showing Up

    (#83) Alex “Onlyjuanalex” - Defining & Maintaining Consistency, Finding Your Jump Rope Tribe, And The Value Of Showing Up

    Alex started jumping for recreational fitness in 2019 and has developed his jumping into a very recognizable, snappy style. We go over his whole journey and I think it will really resonate with everyone, but especially newer jumpers who are learning about the recreational community.
    We get into so many awesome topics, including how Alex’s jump rope journey has evolved over the years from a fitness exercise to competitive level freestyle, the way he found his jump rope tribe through Instagram, how to define your own definition for consistency, the path to learning high level jump rope skill (spoiler: it comes from consistency), skills Alex has struggled with, why your foundations are so important, how Alex trains his freestyle, and a whole lot more.

    (#82) The Jump Rope Journey

    There's been a good chunk of episodes so far, and after looking through some of download stats and getting messages from you all over the years, I’ve decided to start cutting up episodes around a loose theme! There’s a lot of good stuff in some of the older episodes, and a lot of complimentary topics between guests, so I wanted to put it together and see how you all like it.

    Today we’re focusing on the jump rope journey and hearing from a few different jumpers to hear about how their journey has developed and the different ways they think about their jumping. Here's the links to each of the original episodes:

    (#81) Defining Jump Rope “Coaches,” How to Use Social Media, and the History of Skill Names with Celina Furman and Chris Walker

    (#81) Defining Jump Rope “Coaches,” How to Use Social Media, and the History of Skill Names with Celina Furman and Chris Walker

    Celina Furman and Chris Walker are two of my favorite jumpers to hang with and talk all things jump rope. I’ve done separate podcasts with Celina and Chris individually, but I thought it would be fun to have them both on together, and it was indeed a blast!
    Celina is a lifelong competitive and performance jump roper, with an extensive history in the sport. She also was a founding member of the A2 jump rope club at the University of Michigan. Chris is a jump rope coach and owner of the Jump Rope Company, making some of the best ropes out there. He’s always doing work to support the growth of adult recreational jump rope
    This is a fun episode because Celina comes from the competitive sport side of jump rope, and Chris comes from the adult recreational side, which made for a VERY fun, mixed conversation. We get into a lot in this episode including defining what a jump rope coach is, the differences between coaching and giving tips, undoing bad jump rope habits, whether or not jump rope is bad for your knees, the best surfaces to jump on, a brief history of how long jump rope skills have been around and where their names came from, the reason why we don’t need new names for these skills, how to use social media to help your jump rope journey, and a lot more!

    (#80) Kenzie Christensen - Growing the Next Generation of Jumpers, Transitioning to Collegiate Jumping, and Performing with Flight Crew

    (#80) Kenzie Christensen - Growing the Next Generation of Jumpers, Transitioning to Collegiate Jumping, and Performing with Flight Crew

    Kenzie Christensen is a long time competitive jump roper and member of Flight Crew Jump Rope Team
    We get into loads of details about growing up in the competitive jump rope world, which was super fun! If you’re not a competitive jumper just a heads up that there will be some specific references, but you’ll still really dig this episode.
    We talk about so much in our conversation, including growing up in the sport of jump rope, how Kenzie’s competitive training improved over the years, why speed step isn’t as popular as freestyle, and the growth of jump rope organizations over the last decade or so.
    We also get into the jump rope club Kenzie started in College, how that club put on workshops for the local elementary school, the differences between coaching youth competitive jumpers versus adult recreational jumpers, and a whole lot more!

    (#79) Kait Simpson & Robbie Csontos - Routine Building 101, Peak Athletic Age, and Renaming Old Skills

    Kait Simpson and Robbie Csontos are two legends of the competitive jump rope space!
    We get into the weeds with competitive jump rope culture in this episode, and it's awesome! If you're not a competitive jumper, you'll still dig it but just know that we bring up a bunch of references here
    We get into a LOT during our conversion, including the skills that Kait and Robbie have created, Kait’s detailed process for creating new competitive routines, why Robbie does the hardest tricks he can in his routines, and how both of their jumping has evolved over the years.
    We also get into some other topics like the injuries Robbie has had (and powered through during competitions), the trend of renaming skills that have existed for a long time, whether or not there’s a peak age for a competitive jump rope athlete, and a lot more!

A great podcast!

I’m an enthusiast jump roper, and I’ve just been having the best time binging all of these episodes. I’ve learned so much about the world of jump rope through this thoughtful podcast. It’s like a whole new world has opened up for me. Listening to Nate and his guests is a joy. Each episode is full of genuine, thoughtful conversations that really approach jump rope from all angles. I’m so glad I found this podcast and this sport! 💙

More than jump rope

This podcast is advertised as being about jump rope (which omg, what could be better), but these interviews encompass so much more than that. These people are sharing stories about their lives, their perspectives on fitness and health, and how jump rope has been a platform for them to truly thrive in their element. Can’t wait to see how this podcast evolves.
