The Restorative Qualities of Jump Rope with Fausto Castellanos (#25)

You know, when I pick up the jump rope, I don’t see it as a job. I don’t see it as something that I need discipline to do. When I pick it up, I just feel connected.” 

— Fausto Castellanos

Fausto Castellanos (@soberfaust) has an incredible story to share, and I’m really excited that we had the opportunity to connect on the show. If I was to summarize this whole episode in a brief phrase, I would say that we really dive into the restorative qualities of the jump rope. There are so many elements that we cover, including why jump rope is worth the training effort, who Fausto’s influences are, how jumping can be used as a meditation, why using the correct rope length makes all the difference, and a whole lot more.
