How To Do The Thing With The Jump Rope Dudes (#54)

“You can’t rely on feeling good to do things. You have to rely on the practice of just doing something consistently all the time.” – Dan Witmer

On this episode I talk with the legendary Jump Rope DudesDan Witmer and Brandon Epstein. These two need no introduction, as they have built a platform delivering jump rope information to hundreds of thousands of people and have brought an incredibly large amount of folks into the jump rope world. Dan and Brandon use jump rope to not only better themselves, but also to impact others and help create lasting positive physical and mental change for so many. We dive into a bunch of different topics about their journey with jump rope, including how both dudes lost a lot of weight with jump rope, the importance of consistency and the Stackin’ Bricks philosophy, a discussion on Mental Fitness Training, some of the dudes most fulfilling moments, and a whole lot more.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple PodcastsSpotifyStitcher and Overcast.
