Jump Rope Fitness, Coaching Challenges and Longevity with Rachel Jablow (#14)

You can retire from work, but you can never retire from working out” — Rachel Jablow

Rachel Jablow (IG: @get_roped or coaches jump rope classes full time in Chicago, spreading the jump rope flow and helping her clients make some serious fitness gains. As she describes during our conversation, Rachel’s drive to pick up a rope really started with utility. She wanted to get the most impactful workout done in the least amount. Of course, she was hooked after she started (as were the rest of us). We talk about this at length, and many other subjects, including advice for somebody starting a fitness class, changes in the fitness industry, dry needling muscle recovery, overcoming nervousness as a coach, and a whole lot more.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
