Some adults have children so they have a socially acceptable reason to eat at novelty pizza arcades and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with this kid-friendly Groupon.
$39 for Lifetime Membership with Four Weeks of Classes and Four Weeks of Free Play ($145 Value)
Lifetime memberships grant kids aged 6 weeks–13 years all-access admittance to the recently opened facility, which hosts an array of programs. A diverse class schedule incorporates varying exercises and sports instruction, including Cardio Kids, which builds strength and flexibility, and Terrific Tots, which hones early sports skills. Unstructured free-play sessions offer open access to the gym's equipment, allowing parents to bond with children by bouncing on kid-safe trampolines, rolling on tumbling mats, and practicing slinky skills on a stairmaster.
My Gym Children's Fitness Center
My Gym Children's Fitness Center, which currently has more than 200 international locations, was founded more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. Tots as young as 6 weeks can take a month or two of weekly classes, all designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. One-hour Waddlers sessions for babies and parents introduce tots aged 14–22 months to mobility, agility, and social skills as they build block towers and participate in puppet shows. Other classes include Tiny Tykes, a class for parents and babies that focuses on movement, as well as Mighty Mites and Whiz Kids, classes for more independently mobile children aimed at mastering motor skills to build strength, balance, and agility.
For older kids, independent gym classes such as Champions and Cardio Kids build self-esteem, fitness skills, and muscles for future speed-texting showdowns. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to develop youngsters' strength while stimulating their giggle-plexes—carving out a place for creativity and face-to-face engagement in the face of technological temptations and giant robotic faces.
