In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym 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 aged 4 months to 12 years 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 to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in?Parents Magazine.

“Once you get used to it … you just kinda feel like you’re flipping,” Gym Marika student Jessica Witkin says when describing trampolining in an interview with NBC 4. Trampolining, which has elevated from a backyard mainstay to a medal-earning event, is just one of the gymnastics techniques offered at Gym Marika to help improve the lives of children. “It really builds their self-confidence,” says Head Coach Marika Zahrndt, who oversees a team of USAG-certified coaches. During classes, Marika and her staff guide students as they absorb techniques that range from rolls, handstands, and round-offs to combinations, aerial somersaults, and handsprings. Classes encompass multiple events, including floor routines, balance beams, vaulting, and uneven parallel bars. The programs are designed to accommodate kids with all aspirations, from those who dream of gold medals to kids who want a fun way to exercise and get through the seven-year winter.
