Sean and Michelle Clark

Owners, Double Dutch Aerobics Atlanta and Amazing Race Contestants


Sean and Michelle Clark are a happily married couple who are on a mission to make Double Dutch accessible to everyone. They own the first ever Double Dutch Aerobic Studio in the world called Double Dutch Aerobics located in Atlanta. It’s a new way to work out that combines Double Dutch with over 60 aerobic exercises that are executed inside the ropes.

Michelle, a World Champion in Double Dutch and Sean, who is a certified instructor, have toured around the country bringing Double Dutch Aerobics to over 30 cities and have successfully taught over 100,000 kids (including at two of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs) & adults how to jump Double Dutch. They even guarantee they can teach anyone to double dutch in less than ONE minute!

These Brooklyn natives have appeared on numerous national news shows and have been participating on the current season of CBS’s Amazing Race.
