My journey with The Little Gym started when my son, Logan, was just five months old. My wife had booked a class at The Little Gym Hampton Hill. I thought I’d just be taking my son to a music class for babies – a bare room filled with a bunch of slightly uncomfortable Mums and Dads clapping and singing the usual nursery rhymes.

The Little Gym couldn’t have been more different. What I saw blew my mind. There was sophisticated gym equipment, bright colourful walls, really inspiring staff that were super engaged, and a room full of smiling parents. I fell in love instantly! And some of those smiling parents have become lifelong friends.

When my son was three, he started going into classes by himself. But I missed the buzz of being in the gym. I decided I wanted to be back in the gym with the kids and instructors, and I looked into how I could become a part of... Read more

My favourite The Little Gym Story:
Watching the Twisters/Aerials groups growing their skills and completing a back handspring or aerial for the first time- their reactions are fabulous and they are so proud of themselves.
 
What made you interested in sports?
I’ve been a competitive gymnast since the age of 6, I competed in Artistic gymnastics for a few years before I made the switch to Aerobic. I have lucky to have been in the GB team now for 9 years. I’ve competed in 3 World Championships and 3 European Championships. I’m currently in training for my 4th World Championships later in 2016 in Korea.
 
What do you love to do in your free time?
I train every day, in either the day or evenings. Otherwise I like to spend time with family and friends, going to Ascot races or internet shopping! What can’t you live without? Comfy pyjamas, chocolate and crime dramas on the Alibi channel!
 
Where have you lived?
Northwood and Ascot

My favourite The Little Gym Story:
I’ve enjoyed seeing the children’s confidence and skills grow. Whether it’s been through using imagination in Funny Bugs or perseverance in Flips, the excitement that they show when they finally do a skill on their own is second to none. For the older children, who started off being able to handstand and cartwheel and now they can back handspring and pull over on the bars are big achievements I remember fondly.
 
What made you interested in sports?
I started Gymnastics not long after the age of 3 and loved every minute. I was very competitive and watching the older children and adults inspired me greatly. I took up Baton Twirling at the age of 5 and I worked towards competing for England for 14 years and travelling around the world doing so.
 
What do you love to do in your free time?
I enjoy spending time with my partner Tom and my step daughter Aliyah, we enjoy doing lots of creative messy play!
 
What can’t you live without?
Chocolate and my family!
 
Where have you lived?
I grew up in Frimley Green and I now live in Camberley
Instructor and Birthday Coordinator
 
My favourite The Little Gym Story:
I have been teaching with the primary age group for nearly a year and my favourite moments have been when a child’s face lights up when they master a skill for the first time. That is what this job is all about and I love it! Since moving to full time and I have worked more with the 2-5 year old classes, I love the excitement and the imagination from the kids.
 
What made you interested in sports? When I was little I watched Gymnastics on TV and I told my mum “that’s what I want to do!” I competed between the ages of 8 and 12 up until regional level. At University I took up Cheerleading and I joined Unity Allstars and competed at the World Championships in Florida twice. Cheerleading incorporated my love of gymnastics, alongside stunts and jumps. My favourite stunt was back somersaulting onto someone’s hands!
 
What do you love to do in your free time?
I enjoy spending time with my husband, going on road trips and taking on projects in our house; building fences, upcycling and tiling. I also love visiting family and friends and seeing my recently arrived nephew.
 
What can’t you live without?
Music! I love a good power ballad in the car!

Our Philosophy of

Three Dimensional Learning

 

At The Little Gym, our environment is fun, but our purpose is serious. That’s why we embrace a proprietary philosophy called Three-Dimensional Learning, in which physical activity is a conduit for nurturing your whole child. The Three-Dimensional Learning approach to skill development means that every class we offer fosters growth in three holistic dimensions—Brain Boost!, Get Moving! and Life Skills! Read on to see how each dimension of learning helps your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted child.

40 years of

SERIOUS FUN

An innovative educator, musician and kinesiologist, Robin Wes envisioned a nurturing place where children could explore their physical development while also growing socially, emotionally and intellectually. He opened the first The Little Gym in 1976 in Bellevue, Washington and infused those early classes with the same positive, non-competitive spirit that characterises us today. Forty years later, children in more than 300 locations worldwide experience the Serious Fun of The Little Gym.
