In the pioneer days, a honey-covered jackrabbit, a bear-infested barn, and a front-row seat were enough to entertain both parents and their children. Today's Groupon offers a modern win-win for both parents and kiddies. For $20, one child will get a three-hour stint in My Gym's Parents' Night Out childcare program (a $45 value). Although My Gym is a nationwide children's fitness center with several locations in the area, this Groupon is only applicable to its locations in Potomac, Gaithersburg, and Burke. Deposit your little one for a safe and entertaining stay at My Gym while you take in a live-action movie, go out for sushi, or enjoy one of the other privileges of adulthood.
My Gym's Parents' Night Out program gives mothers, fathers, guardians, and packs of wolves a break from the 24/8 task of raising children and allows them a well-deserved night out on the town. While the grown-ups hit the golf alleys and karaoke rodeos of the greater Washington DC area, My Gym's staff of trained fitness and childcare experts keep young'uns mentally active and physically occupied. Kids will flex social muscles, exercise emotional intelligence, and bench-press cognitive processes. The three hours of fun include pizza, a movie, games, arts and crafts, story time, and a brief overview of how loop quantum gravity theory doesn't require string theory's multiple dimensions of space-time.
Parents' Night Out is held one Friday per month, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., adhering to bedtimes and ensuring that the kids also get to sleep at a reasonable hour. All facilities are sterile, safe, and ensconced in mats. Participating progenies must be no older than nine, free from the constraints of the diaper, and well versed in the proper usage of porcelain plumbing fixtures. Parents of multiple pack members, breathe easy; this deal is per child, but you're able to buy up to four Groupons.
My Gym children's fitness center, which currently has more than 325 international locations, began more than 31 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp around. This dedication to imparting the benefits and fun of fitness still earns acclaim today; in 2014 alone, My Gym was named the best children's fitness center by Entrepreneur magazine.
My Gym's popularity stems from its signature program, which helps children from 6 weeks through 10 years of age develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. This development unfolds in the centers' fun classes, which teach kids fundamental skills through music, dance, games, sports, and more. In addition to boosting physical attributes such as balance, coordination, and strength, these fun classes also teach kids important social abilities, as well as boosting their self-esteem.
