Scientists know children are full of excess energy, yet they still can't figure out why a blender plugged into a child doesn't work. Put youthful energy to work with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one month of classes and a lifetime membership (a $153 value) at My Gym Children's Fitness Center in Aventura.
The age-appropriate classes at My Gym Children's Fitness Center helps children develop physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially inside air-conditioned, state-of-the-art facilities. With more than 25 years of experience, My Gym offers structured courses designed to please 6-week-olds bored of dominating family ping-pong tournaments and 13-year-olds in need of some lessons in kinetiquette. Instructors individually coach children and parents through classes that incorporate music, dance, relays, sports, games, special rides, and more.
Parents and tots still measured in months can make use of light exercises, stretches, and parent-and-child songs. The Gymsters program (ages 23 months through 2.5 years) uses 2-year-olds’ allegro tempo to its advantage with a marathon of songs, dances, swinging, playing, and puppet shows. Cardio courses (ages 7–13) get children away from black magic–practicing televisions to enhance endurance and motor skills through a variety of dynamic exercises.
