Some adults have children so they have a socially acceptable reason to eat at novelty pizza arcades and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $39, you get a lifetime membership and four weeks of classes at My Gym in Elk Grove or Folsom (up to a $144 value). A lifetime membership covers all children in the purchaser's family until they reach the age of 13. If one child outgrows the membership, it is still valid for the purchaser's younger children.
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 months) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. The Elk Grove and Folsom locations offer classes for all developmental degrees, from Tiny Tykes, a class for parents and babies that focuses on movement, to Champions, a class for kids aged 6–9 that emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. 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 noncompetitive environment fosters creativity while hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
