  • Your story must include jumping rope and Jump Rope Dudes workouts as part of your transformation. 
  • There needs to be a clear difference between your before and after photos indicating a change in physical composition.
  • Include your total weight lost, and other wins like going off of medications or having more energy to play with your kids — the good stuff!
  • Tell us about your new healthy lifestyle — how does it align with our JRD Athlete core beliefs?
  • Submit photos following the criteria below.
  • Our JRD Transformation features are assessed individually and never guaranteed. We’ll contact you if you’re selected!


Dan’s fitness routine is designed to stay lean and at a high performance level year-round. Not saying everyone has to do the same regime, but this gives you an idea of what the JRD Athlete lifestyle and philosophy is about:

  • Focus on training for life — i.e. improved athletic performance in other activities like dancing, hunting, surfing, basketball, from hobbies to daily life. 
  • Simplicity = Better consistency when it comes to fitness, which equates to better results.
  • Workouts include jump rope + calisthenics training: 
    • 30—40 Min jump rope HIIT workouts 5-6X per week
    • Bodyweight exercises to build muscle (100 pushups, 50 pullups 2-3x per week)
    • Walk, hike, surf, bike — be active! 
    • Sleep 7-8 hours a night

About Nutrition:

  • Drink 90-120oz water daily
  • Alcohol is fine in moderation but keep it limited 
  • Fats, carbs, and protein are all important (common sense eating)
  • Intermittent fasting most days, e.g. 16 hours fasting/8 hour eating window
  • Count calories until you don’t need to


How To Format Your Transformation Photo

To be considered for transformation contests, your before and after photos must meet the following criteria.

  1. Your photos must be taken in good lighting. We need to see your physical transformation clearly.
  2. Dudes, you must be shirtless and in shorts.
  3. Dudettes, you must be in a sports bra, or similar exercise top, and shorts.
  4. No headless photos, meaning, don't crop your head out of the pic please. It's cool if your face is a bit hidden but we need to see that it's the same person.

Send a quality before and after photo in the "side-by-side" format as in the examples below — your before on the left, after on the right. If you need an app for making your collage, try these highly rated apps.
