What You'll Get
Childhood is a time of frustrating realizations—from learning you're too small to reach the cookie jar to discovering you can't melt broccoli with your mind. Help wee ones overcome challenges with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-month membership for either gymnastics or swimming classes (one class per week) at Gym Magic Sports Center & Preschool in Las Cruces (up to a $106 value, including the annual initiation fee).
Gym Magic Sports Center & Preschool fosters healthy childhood growth with fun-focused fitness activities performed in a safe, noncompetitive environment. Teach future Phelpses how to thrive in the deep blue with a session of swim classes in the Lily Pad Swim School, a member of the US Swim School Association. In a shallow, indoor, kid-friendly pool filled with warm water to encourage comfort, instructors help novices grasp the basics and teach more experienced swimmers advanced techniques, such as the backward doggy-paddle and the walrus wade. Parent/child swim classes are offered to students from 6 months to 3 years old, and kiddies older than 3 learn to paddle sans guardian guidance. Classes run for roughly 30 minutes and maintain a maximum ratio of one teacher to five students to ensure optimal results and safety. Those already skilled in the trades of the sea can exercise their land legs in gymnastics classes for tumblers 12 months and older, with parent/child classes available for kids younger than 3. With skilled guidance, pint-sized acrobats will strengthen their bodies, minds, agility, balance, and likelihood of being the next Evel Knievel in an Olympic-size, foam-padded practice space.
Helping children overcome challenges at a young age is a great way to boost self-confidence and lay the groundwork for a successful life. As tots push themselves to learn new skills that don't involve spit bubbles or pulling the dog's tail, dedicated coaches bolster growth and celebrate successes while helping children learn, laugh, grow, saw a mannequin in half, and put it back together again. Gym Magic's term of classes will be in session until well after this Groupon's expiration date, and students may enroll at any time before then.
Current students can use today's deal toward membership in a new program. For swimming students under age 3, cloth swim diapers are required, and they may be purchased on-site for an additional cost. Please refer to Gym Magic's FAQ for further wardrobe recommendations.
