“Know why you’re doing it. Don’t do it for the attention of others.” —Chad Gonzalez
Chad Gonzalez has been jumping for a long time now, and he’s easily one of the most consistently versatile jumpers I know. He uses just about every single jump rope style for every purpose – whether that’s a brutal endurance workout, a freestyle skill training session, a hybrid strength program, or really anything else. Chad has some solid perspective and shares a lot about how to make time for jump rope, how to handle being made fun of for jumping, ways to change up your workouts and integrate all styles of jumping, how to use social media for connection, and a lot more.
