I HAVE BEEN taking my children to The Little Gym for more than five years now. I can bore you to death about all the advantages that a gymnastics program can offer developing kids.
But you know them already: improved gross motor skills, social interaction, better balance and coordination, confidence skills, more independence, improved health, etc.
I have even seen this first hand with my kids, especially the confidence, coordination and physical abilities. My kids seem more comfortable in their bodies than their peers, and I credit this to the last few years we have been involved in a gymnastics program.
But I don’t want to waste time telling you what you already know. Instead, I want to tell you why I think The Little Gym is such a fun place for your children. At The Little Gym, kids experience success in a fun, caring and non-competitive way. They offer year-round programs such as gymnastics, dance, cheer, sports skills, and karate − all taught by fun loving instructors. Chad Mussmon, owner of The Little Gym of Ashburn, Fairfax, and Gainesville and local father of five, is very involved and he knows very well what it takes to keep the kids happy and entertained.
When you walk through the doors at The Little Gym, you and your children are welcomed with big smiles and warm hellos by the young, energetic, and caring staff Chad has assembled. Bright colors, fun music and weekly-themed, structured classes keep the children busy and entertained for an entire hour. Your child is guaranteed to be exhausted by the end of class (which can be an added bonus to some of you). Parents can also enjoy themselves by watching their little ones through a wall-to-wall glass viewing window – now isn’t that part of the fun? I have been to other programs were parents have to fight over a tiny window (or none) just to see what their kid is doing inside and − for me at least − that is NO fun!
The Little Gym also offers birthday parties on the weekends. We have had two for our children with great success, and it was a wonderful, stress-free experience. The gymnastics activities portion of the party is instructor led, so the kids are having fun with the gym equipment in a safe, supervised and structured manner. The party portion is extremely easy, and the staff takes care of everything: from decorating, to table set up, serving the kids, cutting the cake, helping you out to the car and, of course, clean up. It really couldn’t be any easier!
My kids just love it there, and I am happy that they enjoy it so much. It’s very rewarding to see how much they’ve grown. Many of the instructors have become our friends and even babysat for us on occasion. I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful environment for my children at The Little Gym.
