Erwin Jeremy Ng
Vice President - Events
Erwin was admittedly not your boy next door kind of guy. He loves to eat in chunks, has a sweet tooth and had always been overweight. He recalls a couple of humiliating stories during his heaviest, when he weighed 210 pounds. Erwin’s lowest point became his breakthrough moment towards a healthier lifestyle. Fitness wasn’t natural to him. It took him discipline and consistency to further the enthusiasm about it. Now, he is known as the man behind Jump Manila trying to inﬂuence people that being ﬁt could be fun too through skipping ropes and adding twists with tricks and dance steps to the routines. He tries to include everyone in the community most especially beginners, for he believes that good company can be the strongest support in one’s ﬁtness journey.
Arrion Zachary Marañon
Zach is a ﬁtness enthusiast that has experience in competitive swimming and triathlons. After leaving the swimming and triathlon scene, his weight ﬂuctuated up and down as he sporadically would visit the gym to keep in shape. In 2019, Zach found jumprope as a ﬁtness activity that really brought joy and fun to his workouts and because of this, he has become consistent with maintaining his weight, health, and ﬁtness at a level that he is satisﬁed with. He aims to continue growing by learning new jumprope moves and increasing cardiovascular health with these workouts.
At 57, his ﬁtness journey has reached another milestone. From the time he became ﬁt when he turned 50 after losing 70 lbs, he has taken up running, he continues to seriously train, he actively competes in obstacle sports, and he restarted his javelin throwing. Now, he is into another wellness activity - jump rope. He strives to learn, unlearn and relearn.

He started his jumprope journey when he was working as a chef. He wanted to lose weight while working a 12-14 hour shift and decided to include jumprope as part of his lifestyle. After losing 50 pounds, he wanted to share his life changing experience by obtaining jumprope certiﬁcations, by coaching individuals in different gym facilities, and by holding jumprope events to increase the awareness for jumprope as a lifestyle. Reﬁning one’s self through constant practice in jumprope, in sports and especially in life, is his motive for what he wants to attain.
