Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Keep kids on the straight and narrow with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get one month—four consecutive weeks—of kids' fitness classes and a waived membership fee at The Little Gym of West County in Ellisville (a $113 value).
The dedicated instructors at the newly reopened The Little Gym of West County employ their 15 years of educational experience to bolster kids’ minds and bodies through noncompetitive fitness classes held in a nurturing, positive environment. The programs and classes introduce kids aged 4 months to 12 years to fun physical activities that weave in intellectual stimulation and the social skills needed to tactfully part with imaginary friends. Knee-high tots work with parents to prepare for the rigors of toddlerdom in parent and child classes, as older kids amplify self-confidence in karate, gymnastics, sports classes. Rather than overloading tykes with daunting feats such as ripping out-of-date phone books in half, the instructors engage children with regular encouragement and positive feedback to ensure their active futures are fueled by self-esteem.
