“Being a good coach is not having a big ego, it’s knowing that everybody has something to offer and can teach you something valuable.” – Dave Newman
On this episode I talk with the owner and founder of Rx Smart Gear, Dave Newman. People ask me all the time where my relationship with Rx Smart Gear began, and this conversation will explain that – it’s all about the philosophy Dave has created and continues to bring to fitness and the jump rope world. Dave has been and continues to be one of the greatest mentors I’ve had , both within jump rope and in other realms of life. I have a long history with Dave, and I’m really pumped to bring some of that to you with this conversation. For anyone that is new to jumping, we cover rope sizing and how to view jump rope IN DETAIL. For those that are more experienced or are competitors, you’ll really like the way Dave breaks down the craft of jump rope and how he explains it. We get into other topics, such as how to use a jump rope for boxing, overcoming a sedentary lifestyle, how Dave started selling his ropes, and how Dave created his coaching methodology.
