BounceU welcomes kids to descend upon an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce and ricochet in safety. Along with birthday parties and group outings, BounceU hosts open-bounce sessions that let sock wearers of all ages imagine they're synchronized leapers in a futuristic moon performance as they carom around the inflatable stadium, expending energy with every leap. Adults are welcome to act like 8-year-olds and join the vivacious youngsters in the playground.
Easton Yoga's staff invites yogis of all bendabilities to explore the challenging and rewarding practice of yoga in a colorful and calming studio housed in a remodeled 19th-century townhouse. An unlimited punch card grants muscle manipulators access to 24 open yoga classes per week, which can help improve circulation, alleviate stress, and grant the flexibility necessary to doff one's cap using a pinky toe. A beginner basics class lays a solid foundation for budding yogis, and flow classes encourage students to explore new postures and bolster strength. Classes run 75–90 minutes in length, and students are encouraged to bring their own mat, although studio mats are available for rental ($2).

[We're the] home of the nationally ranked Valley Elite All Stars competitive cheer team. In 2014, the Valley Elite Twizzlers (youth level 2) team placed 10th in the country, the Red Hots (junior level 4) ranked in the top 16 in the Country, and Big Red (senior level 5 worlds team) hit a perfect routine at the 2014 Cheerleading Worlds.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Working with children to teach them the importance of sportsmanship, camaraderie, goal setting, motivation, following directions, healthy living, and, most importantly, teamwork has been my passion since I started Valley Athletics and Valley Elite All Stars in 2007.
What?s your favorite part of your job?
Working with the children and watching them grow to be amazing, successful adults.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Valley Athletics is the first athletic center in the Lehigh Valley/Easton area and is home to the Valley Elite All Stars. Our mission is to grow and develop all children to their fullest potential. Our main goal has [been] and always will be to bring fitness, tumbling, cheer, and fun to boys and girls of all ages and skill levels, [and to help them] gain confidence and self-worth on and off the mat.
Valley Athletics is the home base of The Elite Valley All-Stars, an award-winning competitive cheer team?partially because the coaches take the "team" part of the sport so seriously. Outside of their rigorous practices, they host myriad team-building events for their athletes, such as sleepovers, picnics, and holiday parties more fun than just holding a human pyramid until Christmas is over. Their emphasis on physical skills and social skills extends to their programs in gymnastics and tumbling, too, as well as their summer camps. While the camps feature trampoline jumping and other athletic play, the counselors also encourage campers to make new friends while they're there.
The professional, knowledgeable staff at Vintner’s Circle share their love of the wine lifestyle with hands-on wine classes that teach guests, family, and friends how to bottle wines, distinguish between different varietals, or pair wine with cheese. The shop’s unique, all-inclusive winemaking program takes aspiring vintners through the accessible four-part process in store over the course of eight weeks, which begins with choosing wine juices from a selection of more than 50 internationally sourced varieties. Participants eventually bring home more than two dozen bottles with their own vintage for a total cost of less than $10 per bottle. They can emblazon these bottles with custom-designed labels and colorful tops. Vintner's Circle also stocks a variety of gifts for weddings, holidays, and other special occasions, as well as wine accessories and gifts for wine lovers to enjoy year-round. Wine-education classes, corporate events, and team-building events are also on offer.
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym program that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months to 12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities. Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.
