Isaiah Jeremiah Delarmente

Vice President - Technical

He used to be obese during his teenage years. He exhibited his interest in fitness when he became determined to lose weight and be healthy. He managed to have a healthy and active lifestyle when he discovered his interest for jump rope. It became his staple cardio exercise and he began to develop a passion for it. He wanted to share this great change and experience to others and this led him to making jump rope a platform for ministry in reaching out to the youth. Currently, IJ is a healthcare worker, sharing his advocacy on fitness and health through jumprope.

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.

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.

Noel Antonio Agra

President

Chef/Certified Jumprope and OCR Coach

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.
