With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein children ages four months to 12 years can exercise their brains and bodies. Visiting youngsters ages three and under glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed parent/child program, which features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling. Kids ages three and up can also enjoy children-only programs such as karate and gymnastics classes, which cater to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence. Today's Groupon also includes a one-year family membership, which facilitates the redemption of member milestone points, priority enrollment, and member discounts on events.
The Little Gym of Chattanooga
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 4 months to 12 years old 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.
