My Gym Trial Class for Kids between 3 months to 8 Years Old
Who is My Gym?
My Gym has developed an extraordinary program and facilities devised to help children from 3 months thru 8 years of age develop physically, cognitively and emotionally. We have over 500 locations in more than 35 countries offering structured, age-appropriate, weekly classes that incorporate music, dance, relays, games, special rides, gymnastics, sports and more.
Our facilities, programs and services empower youngsters by helping them acquire the skills, confidence and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults.
My Gym’s staff are also trained to provide children with the opportunity to establish warm relationships with compassionate adults, thus raising their level of comfort as they begin preschool/kindergarten.
“We brought Ewan for his first trial at My Gym Rochester Mall when he was 6 months old. Waddlers class was the entry level program then for 8 to 18 monthers. Now, My Gym introduced Tiny Tikes for the 6 to 13 months babies and Waddlers are now for 13 to 18 months toddlers. This is a great move because the Tiny Tikers now have a group of playmates who are of similar developmental skills rather than playing with a group of learning-to-toddles in a class (when they are still struggling to crawl). Besides, the teachers would have to cater to two different age-appropriate gym activities to suit the needs to a large age gap in a single class.”

My Gym Programs:
LITTLE BUNDLES (3 mths to 7 mths) Duration: 45 MINS
Baby exercises, songs, dances, infant-safe rides, unique swings, and many other Parent & Me adventures await the infant-parent team. This fun and movement class also includes a brief parent discussion element. Each week parents participate in a dialogue about their children's development and leave with informative handouts.
TINY TYKES (7 mths to 11 mths) Duration: 60 MINS
As the babies gain hand, arm and trunk control and become mobile, we introduce new and stimulating activities. Our experienced teachers are sensitive to the strong emotional attachment these little ones are developing with their mothers, and each parent/child unit is nurtured according to their specific needs.
Our Tiny Tykes and their parents are led through a variety of beginning stretches, exercises, infant songs and dances, baby-safe rides and adventures, balance and agility skills, and introductory tumbling during this motivating program. A relationship to movement and physical activity begins to develop, as our Tiny Tykes discover their natural abilities and enhance their physical and cognitive development.
WADDLERS (11 mths to 18 mths) Duration: 60 MINS
This stimulating program introduces balancing, tumbling, hanging and agility skills, which help the children develop a love of physical activity and a sense of pride in their achievements. At this age, a child's level of independent mobility will typically progress from aggressive crawling to running. Additional fine and gross motor skills developed during this stage include kicking a ball, building a block tower, riding a tricycle, and walking up stairs. Our highly trained instructors shower the children with affection, as they guide our Waddlers in early social skills through interactive songs, choreographed dances, age-specific puppet shows, special rides, and a variety of swings and other original activities.
GYMSTER (19 mths to 3 yrs) Duration: 60 MINS
The gross motor abilities of early 2-year-olds are often characterized by more confident running and jumping on two feet as well as an overall improved spatial awareness of their bodies. This is the earliest age group with which we work on fine and gross manipulatives in a structured format, as the 2 to 2½-year-old's attention span grows, allowing the child to focus for longer periods of time.
During this engaging class, the youngsters are elated as they sing, dance, swing, play games, watch puppet shows, take turns on special rides, and have "Surprise Time!" Our Gymsters feel great about themselves as they learn gymnastics in a constantly changing program with fresh ingredients and new equipment setups each week.
TERRIFIC TOTS (3 yrs to 5 yrs) Duration: 60 MINS
In addition to having fun with structured games, fascinating "Adventures," and pre-gymnastics, our Terrific Tots learn beginning sports skills, gain fine and gross motor proficiency, and strengthen manipulative skills.
The youngsters become more independent as teachers are now interacting more directly with them. Parental involvement is gradually decreased through inviting activities with love and understanding, and the children exude pride and self-esteem as they are treated like "big kids."
In this age group, teaching physical skills is a top priority. The development of social skills is also emphasized, as the youngsters become good listeners, follow directions, cooperate in a group, and learn more about themselves.
WHIZ KIDS (6 yrs to 8 yrs) Duration: 60 MINS
These children are now ready to refine and master basic gross motor skills such as running, jumping, hopping, skipping, throwing, kicking and catching. Designed to prepare a child for group sports and instill a sense of confidence in connection with physical activity, our Whiz Kids program emphasizes each of these important skills.
The children build strength, balance, agility, flexibility and coordination in this 1-hour program, as our instructors maintain a positive, supportive and noncompetitive atmosphere. Our Whiz Kids are showered with praise as they develop perseverance and self-control.
