My Gym’s nurturing fitness experts coach classes that help make fitness enjoyable and promote positive self-image for kids ranging from 6-week-old dumplings to 13-year-old sprouts. The Little Bundles course begins the adventures for the youngest age set, featuring introductory stimulation, baby-safe rides, and parental discussion on appropriate development and whose infant can do the best burrito impression. Parental involvement continues during the series of three age-appropriate classes for tykes up to 3.25 years, which involve interactive songs, choreographed dance, and puppet shows at the spacious facility. Older children attend sessions independently, sliding on scooters, tumbling on mats, and learning to swing on the parallel bars while eating bananas handed out by the monkeys that emerge from the wall mural when no adults are looking. Lifetime membership lasts until age 13, and unlimited free play lets youngsters burn off energy during unstructured frolicking.
Classes in the Nia technique fuse the active precision of martial arts, personal expression of dance, and self-motivation of healing arts into a whole-body aerobic exercise. The combination of yoga poses, jazz and modern dance, tae kwon do moves, and more increases strength and flexibility while improving ranges of motion, balance, and agility. This user-friendly style empowers students to move within their ranges of comfort, avoiding muscular motherboard crashes and making classes adaptable to all fitness levels. The American Council on Exercise has accredited the Nia technique; all instructors are certified and undergo an intensive Nia-specific training process, where blindfolded trainees must identify yoga poses by their vibration and catch flying dance shoes with their teeth.
