Mimi Youss and the Contagious Enthusiasm of Jump Rope (#21)

I had to stop jumping rope just for weight loss reasons—it can be something contagiously fun.” — Mimi Youss

In this episode I have chat with Mimi Youss (@mimiyouu). I’ve followed Mimi for quite some time now, and always enjoy her attitude and outdoor jumping sessions. If you haven’t seen her jump, I highly recommend checking her page over on instagram for some jump rope greatness. We cover a lot of territory in this conversation and go over Mimi’s experience competing in track and field, why she doesn’t post all of her training sessions, how Mimi developed her style, and a whole lot more! 

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