Every week, we feature motivational transformation stories from members of our community. Today, we’re going to introduce you to an awesome dude who was able to change his life by learning how to properly care for his health and nutrition. Bryan is a guy who struggled to lose weight and keep it off for years, but when he dialed in his nutrition and started jumping rope, he was finally able to see some consistent and lasting results.
Bryan has a very relatable story where he would lose some weight, but just could never seem to keep it off. He knew he was overweight and he wanted to make a change. Bryan was like a lot of us when it came to fitness and nutrition. He didn’t fully understand how nutrition worked so he would overeat on healthy foods not knowing that eating too much of anything prevented him from reaching his fitness goals.
Bryan also struggled with being able to commit to exercise for years and his weight yo-yo’d as a result. He would try new fitness routines, lose 5 to 10 pounds and then gain it all back because the workouts became so boring that he’d quit. One day, he came across Jump Rope Dudes and thought he’d give jumping rope a shot. After doing a few of our beginner tutorials, he realized that he was actually having fun working out! After that, it was easy for him to stick with the program because he was finally enjoying the process.
How Bryan Did It
The biggest game changer for Bryan was that he was finally able to learn the basics of nutrition. By using our nutrition protocol, Bryan was able to really understand how the body uses food and how by managing food and calories, you can reach your fitness goals. He dialed in his nutrition and started eating the right amount of food for his body and limited junk foods and soda.
Bryan also committed to jumping rope because he was having so much fun doing it. He jumps rope 5 to 6 times every week and pushes himself when he is exercising. Combining his nutrition knowledge with consistently jumping rope, Bryan was able to lose an incredible 60 pounds in 10 just months. He loves jump rope so much that he’s even gotten a few of his friends doing it too.
How You Can Do It
If you’re like Bryan and jumping rope is completely new for you, we recommend starting with our free 4-week jump rope challenge. It’s a program that makes it easy to build jumping rope into your everyday routine. We also have tons of beginner tutorials where we show you how to hold the jump rope properly and give you tips on how to find your rhythm when you’re getting started. We even have an ultra beginner workout if you’re really hesitant about starting to jump rope or just want to move into it at your own pace. Once you get the basics down, you can move onto more advanced jump rope workouts and learn new tricks. We’re constantly posting new videos, tutorials and free workouts so that jumping rope never gets boring.
One of the main reasons Bryan was so successful was because he dialed in his nutrition. If you’re main goal is to lose weight, like Bryan’s was, you’ll need to eat in a calorie deficit. This basically just means that you need to eat fewer calories than you are expending throughout the day. If you want help figuring out exactly how many calories you should eat, check out our free Nutrition Calculator. This tool is really easy to use – all you do is plug in your information and fitness goals and the calculator will tell you how many calories and macronutrients you need to eat each day. You can then use a free app like My Fitness Pal to track what you eat every day and make sure you hit your target numbers.
Do The Thing
Bryan’s story is incredibly relatable and you can achieve the body transformation you want, just like he did. Make sure to eat the right amount of food for your body and incorporate at least 30 minutes of jump rope or bodyweight exercise into your routine 5 to 6 days per week. If you hit your nutrition targets and exercise consistently, you’ll get the body you want. Remember to have fun!
