It’s been an interesting year so far, hasn’t it? (Yes, lots of adjectives would work here.) The parents have had to be strong, creative, and resourceful, but the kids have had a lot to get used to, as well. As September approaches, make the back to school season back to some fun, active recreation, too! Fall programs at My Gym have been carefully designed to accommodate a wide variety of needs. Whether you want to get back to normal and send your kids to a program, or you want to keep your bubble small and book My Gym for a private playdate, babies and children will love the fun, physically engaging environment.
Kids are made to move. My Gym coaches are experts when it comes to children’s fitness; they know just what kids need to develop physically, cognitively, and emotionally. Of course, as expected, there are new procedures in place this year. My Gym strictly follows all Alberta Relaunch Strategy Guidelines, including smaller groups and a special drop-off and pick-up routine. All areas including toys, all mats, and equipment will be sanitized and cleaned before and after each use. The ball pit will remain closed at this time. All fabric toys as well as any other material that cannot be properly sanitized will be removed from programming.
My Gym has programs for children ages 6 weeks – 10 years and two locations to choose from in Calgary. The following featured programs give you a taste of what My Gym Calgary South and My Gym Calgary can offer. Find one that’s right for you and let the fun begin!
Parented Gym Class: During this engaging class, available in 3 levels from 6 weeks to 3.25 years, the little ones will be elated as they sing, dance, swing, play, watch puppet shows, take turns on special rides, and try introductory tumbling. Your kiddos will have so much fun as they learn gymnastics in a constantly changing program with fresh ingredients and new equipment setups each week.
My Gym Preschool Prep: This class, for children ages 2.25 – 4 years old, focuses on skills useful in preschool and beyond, with the My Gym fitness curriculum, arts and crafts, stimulating small group and independent activities, and basic academic preschool instruction.
Martial Arts the My Gym Way!: Kids ages 3.5 – 8 years old will benefit from the supportive martial arts program at My Gym, with improvements in stamina, flexibility, strength, body awareness, and coordination. As they progress, the students will test for higher belt levels and the kids will benefit from self-discipline, confidence, self-control, and concentration.
My Gym Private Playdates: If your family would prefer to have an enjoyable and active playtime with your personal cohort, private playdates are for you! Your family will have exclusive use of the gym, with one teacher to help you out. (There may be cleaning happening while you’re there, but never in your space.)
STEAM Learn and Play: This new 3-hour drop-off program may be just the thing for your curious and active child. STEAM Learn & Play is an engaging program for children ages 4 – 10 that includes Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and, of course, physical exercise and fun. Every week will feature a new kid-friendly theme, like Superheroes, Frozen, Space, or Ninjas and no two classes are alike.
So, what are your kids doing this fall?! Get them playing, moving, and learning the physical literacy skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. My Gym creates moments that matter and registration is now open. Pick your favourite programs and get back to fun!
