Jump Rope Coach, Competitor, and Podcaster!
"It's ok to make mistakes, and it's also ok to share those failures!" - Ervin ConcepcionErvin Concepcion started jumping during the beginning of lockdown in 2020, and since then has learned a tremendous amount of skills and even started selling jump ropes to his community in the Philippines. Also this guy has dislocated his shoulder more times than anyone I know and he has a really hilarious way of explaining these injuries, which we get into during the podcast. We also talk about how competitive sports help teach optimism, how to approach selling jump ropes, Ervin's process learning to jump rope, Ervin's history playing competitive tennis, and a bunch more. 
Let's start 2021 better than last year (LOL)On this episode we'll go through three topics I'm focusing on: Consistency, Mental Wellbeing & What Is Jump Rope?You'll hear from a lot of folks on these topics:Dec McCarthyMike FryStewart IsaacsChad GonzalezDon MichaelThe Jump Rope DudesJohnjo RigueraCarla FranziniThe San Francisco Band - Mel, Kyle & DeanaJuli CampDustin Glass
"You don't just have to focus on the physical aspect of jump rope. It's an extremely mental sport as well!" - Dylan PlummerDylan Plummer is is a decorated competitive jump rope athlete, and one of the original jumpers who used to post to YouTube over a decade ago. Dylan and I originally met digitally during those YouTube days, but this is actually the first full conversation we've had! And we go very deep on this one. We start out discussing his computer science profession and how he's using machine learning in the biology field (which is extremely interesting), and then we move into more jump rope focused topics such as the accessibility of information in our sport, how the impossible becomes possible, whether or not older jumpers over 20 can be faster than youth, and a whole lot more.
"I live by the code, 'Ever try, ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.'" - LA Sarmiento(This original quote is attributed to Samuel Beckett)LA Sarmiento is a jumper in the Philippines and previous student of mine. I've spent a good amount of time coaching LA, but this is the first time we really had a long chat, and boy did he deliver! We dive deep into a lot of topics, including how LA has managed his asthma with sports, his experience with competitive tennis and how that has influenced his jumping, why trial and error is foundational to both jump rope and programming, maintaining an optimistic mindset, and a bunch more!
