Children are far more delicate than adults due to lacking our fireproof skin and utter unafraidedness of giant gorillas perched atop the Empire State Building. Let children flourish on gentle grounds with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a lifetime membership and four weeks of classes (a $143 value) at My Gym Children's Fitness Center, with locations in Elk Grove and Folsom.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level (starting as young as 6 weeks) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. The Elk Grove and Folsom locations offer classes for all developmental degrees, including the Tiny Tykes class, a session for parents and babies that focuses on movement, and the Champions class, designed to help 5- to 9-year-olds master sports and gymnastics skills. Exact schedules vary by location; click here to see the Elk Grove lineup and here for Folsom's lineup.
My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The atmosphere is always friendly and inviting so that it fosters creativity and face-to-face engagement in the face of technological temptations and giant robotic faces. Call to schedule your visits.
- My baby loves the classes and the staff. I checked out several different mommy&me [sic] programs before we joined, and My Gym is the best program in the Folsom area. – Sandra B., Yelp, 10/15/10
- My 18 month old has been going to MyGym [sic] since he was 4 or 5 months old. The owners are great and they are very flexible and as family friendly as you can get! – Claudia S., Yelp, 1/15/11
