On this date six years, my husband and I opened The Little Gym of NE San Antonio for the first time. Then, two months ago, we were fortunate enough to buy The Little Gym of Alamo Heights. So, this seems like the perfect opportunity to reflect back on the experience of owning a location (and now 2) of The Little Gym.
In my six years of experience as a business owner, there are 2 related questions that I have been asked over and over by our Members and their friends. “You and your staff are always so friendly and happy. How do you keep that up?” and “How do you find such patient and caring teachers?”
We look for instructors that are positive, passionate about physical fitness, and truly are excited about working with kids. We take them through a multi-step interview process and really get to know them. When we find a kid magnet with all of the above characteristics, we have lucked out and found another amazing TLG teacher. They are also lucky, though, because for that unique person, working at TLG is fun! We get to tumble, play, sweat, work hard, and meet amazing kids and their parents. More than that, every day is filled with kids’ successes: a one-year old taking his first steps, a two-year old feeling confident enough to let go of mom’s hand during the warm up, a seven-year old doing a back handspring by herself for the first time. That is what keeps our instructors going and why they are so energetic and happy every day.
So, highlights of the last six years as a The Little Gym owner and teacher? Sharing successes with kids. Meeting wonderful, invested parents. But, also getting to know so many fantastic staff members that are dedicated to making your child’s week a little more magical. Thank you to all team members past, present, and future. You rock!
