Did you know…
In a recent *study in US schools it showed that, if you schedule aerobic activity before your most difficult learning objective, students retained more information.
The study also proved that physically active students achieve 2x higher academic scores than those who are not physically active. Schools where students participated in regular aerobic activity showed a measurable reduction in disciplinary problems. Invariably JUMP JAM receives rave reviews! Check out the Testimonials page.
