With more than 35 years of kid-entertaining experience, the friendly staff at The Little Gym provide a safe and fun locale where kids can stay active in a nurturing and non-competitive environment. Visiting youngsters glean skills and confidence while participating in hands-on activities that help enhance emotional, intellectual, and social skills. During classes full of physical activity, 4 to 12 year olds can learn to focus minds and bodies through the art of karate; 3 to 12 year olds learn to summon rain and showers of candy through dance. When four consecutive weeks of engaging exercises have left young ones yearning for more, the annual membership allows for eleven more months of exploration and growth. Gymnastics, sports skills, and parent/child classes for babies are also offered. Check the schedules for Columbia and Lexington for availability and call ahead for reservations.
Uncluttered by impersonal equipment, The Firm's mirrored expanse of blond wood floors and taupe walls provide plenty of room for the instructors to move around. Trainers motivate clients to sweat toward svelte physiques during BodyPump sessions and BodyCombat classes that blend cardio and martial arts to get students kicking and punching through excess calories. Most of the classes leverage body weight or light equipment to trim waistlines and tone muscle with the exception of RPM classes, which build endurance and cardio strength using state-of-the-art Body Bikes.
