A structured environment and place for my children to run around, burn off their energy, while building their cognitive and social skills? Sign me up, please.
The WMB Contributor team had the opportunity to meet the new owners of My Gym Wichita, a program and facility that incorporates music, dance, games, and gymnastics designed to help children develop physically, cognitively and emotionally.
Not only did our kiddos have an incredible time, but so did the adults!
Here are 5 Reasons We Love My Gym Wichita!
Fun for a Wide Range of Ages
My Gym’s programs and classes are age appropriate and geared toward children ages 6 weeks to 10 years. I personally had no idea My Gym activities also included kiddos in early elementary (I thought it was just for toddlers). We had kiddos up to age 7 in our group, and fun was had by all! We also hear that My Gym will eventually be adding Mommy and Me Classes for the wee babes as well.
Makes Fitness Fun
My Gym is committed to nurturing children and creating a supportive and noncompetitive atmosphere where fitness is fun! Through age appropriate classes as well as “free play”, children gain strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. From dancing to fun music to jumping on trampolines to balancing on the beam – children are constantly moving in a fun and exciting way.
Perfect Balance of Structure + Free Play
My Gym creates a great balance of structured classes and free play, where children are free to learn and explore, while developing their physical, social, and cognitive skills. A membership to My Gym includes one weekly structured class (you can find a list of classes here) plus one “practice & play”, which is like a free play.
3 Words: Parents Night Out
Occasionally, My Gym will host a Parents Night Out. Yes, they are your evening’s babysitter so you can have a night out on the town while your kiddo(s) enjoy active play for a few hours and pizza for dinner! Check their Facebook Page Events for up to date details.
This was one of my first experiences with My Gym, and they throw one heck of a birthday party. This 1.5 hour experience lets the trained professionals lead a group of kiddos in action-packed activities. (Another bonus? Cleanup is left to the professionals as well!)
