Creating Optimism Through Jump Rope With Noel Agra (#51)

“Fitness is a lifestyle, not a permanent destination.” — Noel Agra

Lately I have been getting to know a lot of the jumpers from the Philippines, and I quickly came to learn about Noel Agra as he is the President of the Philippine Jump Rope Association. We dig into so much good stuff on this episode, including how the PJRA was formed, Noel’s background as a chef working at some very prestigious restaurants across the globe, how to cultivate an optimistic mindset by running into obstacles, growing and adapting your fitness strategies over time, and a whole lot more. 

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