Strengthening the Mind with Jump Rope Performance Artist Adrienn Banhegyi (#11)

When you teach, you learn even more.” — Adrienn Banhegyi

Adrienn Banhegyi (IG: @adriennbanhegyi_jump or Adrienn is an incredibly polished jumper and knows how to put together difficult sequences and make them look easier than a single bounce. As you will hear, she has quite the extensive history with jump rope. With over 26 years of experience in the sport, Adrienn brings so much great insight and information to the table during this conversation. She has competed on an international level. She’s done many large scale performances, including many TV spots and jobs with Cirque. And on top of this, she’s worked as a personal trainer and has practiced several different fitness disciplines, including TRX, Bosu ball training, group classes and more. Needless to say, Adrienn shares a gold mine of jump rope knowledge, and I’m really excited all of you to absorb it. We cover all sorts of topics, including her research with coaching group jump rope classes, strengthening the mind with jump rope, coaching special needs children, her business Jump Plus World, and a whole lot more.

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