My Gym Children’s Fitness Center offers other fun ways to get kids moving. You may be familiar with their weekly classes. At more than 260 locations worldwide, My Gym holds early physical education and pre-gymnastics classes at state-of-the-art facilities. In addition to weekly classes, My Gym has birthday parties with games, music, exercise, sports, gymnastics, puppets, and special rides. And it's not just about fun - kids gain strength, balance, and coordination, developing their fine and gross motor proficiency, agility, flexibility and social skills. How's that for a win-win!
My kids and I have not been to a My Gym location but I love the idea. We got to try their next best thing: a DVD called Mymo’s Adventures that was provided to us for free. The DVD features the gym’s cute mascot, Mymo, who takes kids on six interactive adventures. My kids enjoyed it although I think they are a little older than its intended audience. It's probably best suited for the preschool crowd - and perfect for a rainy day.
Mymo's Adventures has animated fun, live action workouts and a funny puppet called Alphonzo Bartholomew III. Just as the classes at My Gym, Mymo’s Adventures aims to educate, entertain and motivate children to move rather than veg out in front of the TV or the computer screen. Personally, I am all for avoiding the zombie-like glazed-over look!
