Wrapping Our Ropes Around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Childhood Obesity

Jump Kids is a health and wellness  group that was founded to tackle the epidemic of childhood obesity and mental health issues such as ACE's.


We developed a result driven program to treat youth who are suffering from low self-esteem, peer pressure, depression or trauma and stress related issues. 


Jump Kids is a preventive treatment center for children and adolescents who are prone to hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, some cancers  and other life threatening ailments. 


Our programs focus on youth's overall health and remaining physically fit by way of competitive double dutch and or soccer training techniques.

Our Mission:

Jump Kids Health mission is to reverse ACEs and combat childhood obesity through competitive jump rope, nutritional counseling, and mental health therapy. Our vision is to treat our youth to blossom into future leaders. 

Why Jump Kids Health?

Jump Kids Health cares about the overall well being of the child-mentally, physically and socially and we use one of the most favorable pastimes, double dutch to engage them in our treatment plans.  Double dutch is one of the best exercises and according to John Ratey, M.D. an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, exercise turn on the attention system functions such as sequencing, working memory, prioritizing, inhibiting, and sustaining attention. It is a perfect way to stay fit and can also be used as an effective tool for coping with ADHD and ADD. 

According to the American Heart Association, more than 25 percent of children and adolescents are overweight.​

Jumping rope for just 10 minutes can burn more than 1000 calories and gives similar cardiovascular benefits as swimming for 20 minutes or jogging for 30 minutes.

Jumping rope incorporates all major muscle groups while also improving coordination.

 “Get your child involved in something that he/she finds fun, so he/she will stick with it,” suggests Ratey. "Team activities or exercise with a social component are especially beneficial"
