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 $15, you get 3 Mommy and Me free play visits to My Gym Children's Fitness Center on Telephone Road.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began in California more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. During hour-long free play sessions at the Ventura location(see the schedule, moms and tykes can bond as they scale a kid-friendly rock-climbing wall, take a tumble on the trampoline, or use loose toys from the back room as rocket boosters to rescue an imaginary princess from the top of the monkey bars. The atmosphere at My Gym 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. Children should wear socks and must be supervised by an adult.
- They absolutely love all of it. You know your kids are in a good place when you go to pick them up and they're never ready to leave. It's always "Just a few more minutes Mom.. Please.." – Google Mapper who reviewed on 9/22/2010
- My daughter has been going for about a half a year. She has been doing handstands like crazy all the time. She has really come out of her shell since my gym! – annemarie, Yahoo Local
