Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Audubon

The Little Gym of Audubon, PA, is owned by Vee Allen, who has spent much of her life working with, advocating for, and even teaching children and families. Her passion to help others led her to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Chestnut Hill College. After a few years in social service and case management, she began to realize that the emotional toll of working with broken families would not afford her the career longevity she desired.  In remembering her first introduction to a The Little Gym program, when her own daughter was just a few months old, she set out find a part time positon at one of the gyms in the area. Having experienced The Little Gym on a couple of occasions, she remembered loving the way the program was implemented and how great the instructors were, and she imagined that this would be a great company to work for.  Little did she know that small task would turn into discovering the possible franchise opportunity, a ton of research, and plenty of sacrifices, all leading to owning her very own TLG location.

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Audubon, 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.

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 Audubon experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
