THE STUDIO IS CURRENTLY CLOSEDclose
Friends call me Jim offers weekly exercise classes for kids 2-5. Through immersive storytelling, research-based curriculum, and cutting-edge technology, children gain essential skills for life.
Due to covid, we had to close our studio. We are looking into ways to re-open, but for now we still are closed.
Programs are delivered in two formats: Jim Classes – 45-minute lessons, offered daily – and Jim Time, two hours of guided playtime on Wednesday afternoons.
Expert coaches, with the help of the animated Jim characters – Floaty, Fast, Strong, Bendy, and the Bounce twins – guide children in creative movement activities.
*All classes are offered in English/Dutch
Everything comes to life in the magical and playful Friends call me Jim studio in Amsterdam. Situated a stone throw’s away from Museumplein and the Pijp, this beautiful space is also available to hire for your next party or event.
Not just for kids!
Friends call me Jim offers a working space and relaxation lounge for adults. Unwind, socialize, and watch your children having fun in class. Come on in, the coffee is complimentary!
Movement skills are developed through repeated practice. With a membership, your child can join one or two classes per week and experience the most benefits from Friends call me Jim.

‘She seems happier and more coordinated
since joining Friends call me Jim. And the lounge with the coffee corner is just a great place to sit down and relax!’
‘She has so much more self-confidence
and performed all movement skills much better. It is definitely something I can highly recommend for everyone. It is a great combination of learning new things in a playful way.’
"I discovered Friends Call Me Jim by chance and I am so happy I did! My 4 year old absolutely loves it and can't decide whether he likes more the studio with the lights or the one with the traditional gym things....so we are alternating between both each season! When my son started going to Jim School (as he calls it), he was a bit clumsy and afraid of doing many things on his own (especially jumping, wall climbing and ropes) and now I am a proud mom seeing how at ease he is in the gym, not afraid of doing things on his own and even volunteering to be the first one to try new exercises! I definitely recommend it!!!"
