Roots Gymnastics' safety-certified coaches, some of whom have competed internationally, use gymnastics as a tool to help children to grow physically, socially, and emotionally. They begin teaching boys and girls at age 12 months in Little Sprouts programs, which build coordination and balance. In recreational programs for ages 6-18, the instructors instill more advanced skills as kids catch some air on in-ground trampolines and foam pits. In addition to gymnastics, coaches instruct in areas such as free running, wrestling, and pommel-horse grooming. They also form competitive teams for a variety of different skill levels. Roots Gymnastics boasts 19,000 square feet packed with Olympic-quality equipment. The gym includes four in-ground trampolines, a rope swing, and two foam pits.

One Stop Fun grants children and parents alike a lighthearted escape from the rigors of daily tasks and chores with a multicolored jungle gym, kid-sized climbing wall, and entertaining pool area. A three-story indoor playground's plastic tubes fill with toddlers and oversized bank transfers traveling between a collection of ball pits and bouncy bridges. Inside another room, primary-colored handholds protrude from a graphite-hued climbing wall that lets children safely explore its 40-foot surface with a maximum height of 8 feet. The fun center also lends out its facilities for birthday parties and other gatherings. For more organized activity, USAG-certified gymnastics instructors teach tumbling as part of a programs portfolio that also instills coordination and discipline with karate and dance classes. As children play and learn, adult chaperones can lunch at the snack bar or take advantage of conveniences such as complimentary WiFi for staying in touch and a changing area for concealing the secret identities of super children.

Participants new to Zumba can acclimate themselves in the hip-swinging Beginners class, while Zumba Kids caters to students aged 4–12 with hip-hop music and choreography designed specifically for kids.
