Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Abington

The Little Gym of Abington is owned by Chris and Catie Haig, who have owned this location for over 11 years. Catie was a student scholar athlete at Duke University, whose love for gymnastics and kids drew her to this business over 18 years ago as an instructor at another The Little Gym location. She found her "calling" and passion as she watched the growth and development of the kids in that facility during her time as an instructor. The smiles and laughter of the kids each day has also helped fuel this passion and love of The Little Gym. Chris and Catie have two grown children who no longer live in this area, who have both successfully chosen career paths in the "helping"world, as well as two  girls currently in high school who occasionally you will see around the gym helping to run parties, parent survival nights and camps. We welcome you to become part of our The Little Gym family and would love the opportunity to meet your family soon! You won't be disappointed by joining our "family".

Philosophy

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Abington, 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 Citizen Kid!.  Read on to see how each dimension of learning helps your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted super kid.

Get Moving

Developing flexibility, strength, balance and coordination through varied physical activities

Brain Boost

Promoting sharing, teamwork, cooperation and leadership through spending time with your kid’s friends and peers

History

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 characterizes us today. Forty years later, children at The Little Gym of Abington experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
