Children are far more delicate than adults, since they lack our fireproof skin and utter unafraidedness of a giant gorilla perched on top of the Empire State Building. Let children flourish on gentle grounds with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a lifetime membership ($75) and one month of classes ($75) at My Gym Children's Fitness Center. This Groupon is valid at five locations: Cherry Hill, Newtown, Mechanicsburg, Lionville, and Scranton.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 25 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 six weeks) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. The Cherry Hill location offers classes for all developmental degrees, from Tiny Tykes/Waddlers, a class for parents and babies that focuses on movement, to Whiz Kids/Champions, a place for 4.5- to 13-year-olds to master sports and gymnastics skills. Schedules and class options vary by location; click here to see the Cherry Hill 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.
My Gym Children's Fitness Center
As the morning begins, a row of toddlers takes turns tumbling feet over head while their parents guide them into the correct movement. Later, school-age kids sit in a circle, legs stretched before them as they try to touch their toes. The trained staff of My Gym Children's Fitness Center imbue kids with life skills through music, physical activities, and games. Many classes incorporate physical exercises with social and developmental skills, while summer camps are also available seasonally. All classes take place in a well-padded room, led by staff trained in child development and fluent in Muppet.
