IMC Grupo features Tumbles – that’s edutainment!February 11, 2021
Tumbles kids’ gyms are built around a central mission: shaping the minds and bodies of the future, and hopefully along the way, filling those happy little hearts with unfettered joy … and health.
For the Health of It
Manish Vakil, Tumbles’ founder and CEO, says that his business philosophy is based on making a “profit with a purpose,” and that purpose is fighting childhood obesity. According to the CDC, in 2019, for children and adolescents between 2–19, the rate of obesity was 18.5%, affecting 13.7 million children and adolescents. The problem is endemic, particularly in the United States, but it has been on the rise worldwide since the pandemic hit last March.
As the father of twin boys, Vakil knows lifelong habits begin in childhood and has a personal stake in keeping his family healthy. Both high blood pressure and diabetes occur in his family, and both diseases can be managed by diet and exercise.
“Statistics show that poor child health is a growing concern in our country,” says Vakil. “At Tumbles, we provide solutions to this crisis.”
