“[My client] told me I saved her life with jump rope. As an architect and an engineer, I never had that from a client.” —Max Bennesar
Max Bennasar is a jump rope coach in Panama, and we have become friends over the last few years via the Instagram community. We’ve talked a lot through DM, but this is first time we had a chance to sit down and really go through Max’s history with jump rope. He is doing a phenomenal job coaching Primal Jump Rope at his gym, and we dig into so many topics, including what Primal Jump Rope workouts are, how Max started jumping when he was six years old and how his skills evolved throughout his life, why Max entered a rowing competition, a few of the ways jump rope can strengthen the mind, and a whole lot more.
