Chito Ines — The Art Of Zen Jumping, Patience & The Process, And Letting Imagination Guide Your Journey (#72)

“Once your imagination gets triggered, it’s hard to stop it. You’re going to attempt to push yourself to see how far you can go.” — Chito Ines

Chito Ines is a PJRA Athlete Council Member, Rush Athlete, and all around awesome dude. Chito and I connected online a while ago during the pandemic, and since then we’ve become great friends. We discuss Chito’s journey and I know it will really resonate with everyone, but especially newer jumpers who are learning about the community.

We cover a lot of territory, including how Chito lost 40+ pounds jumping, why basic skills have always been a staple throughout Chito’s journey, how having fun is the unlock for staying consistent, the top tips that beginners should know, the skill that frustrated Chito the most, and loads more.

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