Children occupied by constructive afterschool activities are less likely to buy BB guns or hang out with dogs that buy children BB guns. Keep tots gainfully at play with today's Groupon: for $33, you get four kids' fitness classes and four free-play sessions at My Gym Children's Fitness Center, valid only at the Redlands location (up to a $67.50 value).
The staff at My Gym Children's Fitness Center immerses kids aged 6 months to 13 years in age-specific classes designed to improve physical, cognitive, and social skills. The gym keeps a low student-to-teacher ratio by regularly cloning instructors, who help youngsters flourish during more than 20 weekly sessions that incorporate upbeat music, games, and dance. Infants hone arm and trunk control through beginning stretches and baby-safe rides in the 45-minute Tiny Tykes class, and 2- and 3-year-olds calibrate gross motor and manipulative skills through the structured games and pre-gymnastics of the one-hour Terrific Tots class. During the four-station circuit-training course and strength exercises of the Cardio Kids class, youths ages 7 to 13 years focus on specific muscle groups to prepare for upcoming Ironchild competitions and enhance general health. Parents can take shelter under the walls' colorful palm trees and bright blue skies as they supervise progeny during a one-hour weekly free play session.
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, 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 classes also teach kids important social abilities, as well as boost their self-esteem.
