Bernadette Henry – Journey Of The Underdog Making Progress (#71)

“When I jump rope, I feel like I’m in a different country. I’m not thinking about my stress, I’m not thinking about anything that’s going on in my life. […] I feel good for that amount of time!” — Bernadette Henry

This is a powerhouse episode with the legend Bernadette Henry, founder of Make It Fun NYC! We cover how she got to perform on the Dr. Oz show, the right way to start jumping safely as a beginner, how jumping improves self esteem, Bernadette’s acronym for JUMP – the journey of the Underdog Making Progress – and what it means to her, the benefits of jumping for busy moms, and so much more. Everyone can take something away from our conversation, and it’s especially great for new jumpers or someone thinking about starting to jump rope.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple PodcastsSpotify, Google, Stitcher and Overcast.
