Using Jump Rope and Strength Training to Fuel Your Fitness with Davina Dalgetty (#23)

In this episode I talk with Davina Dalgetty. Davina and I have been friends for a while now, and have jumped a few times at local events in Southern California. We’ve spent hours geeking out on all things jump rope fitness related, and I wanted to bring some of those conversations to you. We touch on a lot of different subjects, including the things Davina wishes she would have known at the beginning of her fitness journey, what she’s learning now that’s new and impactful, building a sense of confidence and pride through jump rope, and a whole lot more.
