1. Get Moving! Physical activities to burn that boundless energy, plus build flexibility and strength, develop balance and coordination, and encourage agility, rhythm and overall fitness to launch a lifetime of healthy habits. We use real gymnastics equipment sized for children/kids ages 4 months to 12 years of age.
2. Brain Boost! Designed to expand the mind and develop a love of learning, these exercises foster sustained concentration and decision making, prepare for or reinforce school lessons and nurture problem-solving ability and creative expression. For example, when we ask a student to follow a complex set of instructions in an obsticle course.
3. Citizen Kids! These activities teach life skills like sharing, working in a group, listening and leadership-all skills that translate to a well-rounded superkid!
As each success builds off the last, you will see noticeable improvements in your child's physical abilities and self-confidence. Your child will simply see The Little Gym as a place to play, laugh and make new friends. And quite frankly, that's fine by us.

Over the past few weeks at The Little Gym, we have been incorporating number concepts, counting, and simple math in our parent/child and pre-k gymnastics classes! Using multiple senses while counting (such as counting on fingers or touching counted objects) helps kids in the parent/child classes learn and retain numbers. Observing and emulating parents’ behavior and counting also helps to build a positive foundation for learning in a group setting.
In our pre-k gymnastics classes we have been giving kids opportunities to express their creativity by having them try to form the shapes of different numbers with their bodies. This helps with number recognition and is great for developing body control and spatial awareness. Teaching number concepts through movement is a fun way (for both instructors and kids) to take advantage of the connection between motor skills development and cognitive learning. Multi-sensory experiences, such as counting steps as they walk across the balance beam, allow children to gain the ability to learn and process information faster.
We add to the complexity of our learning when we engage our bodies in the same concepts as our brains, which leads to healthier, smarter kids!

It starts with a sniffle -- next thing you know, the whole household is sneezing, coughing, and passing tissues. Before long, the common cold, or worse, seasonal flu, is upon you.
According to the CDC, up to 20% of the population gets the flu each year. The Mayo Clinic cites the common cold as the number one culprit of stay-home-sick-from-school days in children.
While you can't completely germ-proof your child, you can separate fact from fiction to keep your family healthier, and save time, money, and frustration. Start by putting some of the more common myths and misunderstandings to rest by reading about the top 3 cold and flu related myths.
Myth #1: The flu vaccine causes the flu
Truth: Getting a flu shot may cause symptoms that feel like the flu, but the viruses contained in the flu shots have been killed, or "inactivated." which means they can't cause infection. While there may be some achy side effects that can sometimes follow the flu shot, it just means your immune system is responding and processing the vaccine.
Myth #2: You're more likely to get sick if you're cold
Truth: Despite mom's warnings that you should bundle up, being cold does not cause a cold. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, infections prevail in winter months because they are spread when more people stay indoors for longer periods of time and are in closer contact with each other.
Myth #3: Hugging and kissing are great ways to spread cold and flu germs.
Truth: Cold and flu viruses like to enter the body through the nose or eyes, so a hug or a peck on the cheek isn't likely to be dangerous. Don't be afraid to give your sick child plenty of affection, and don't worry that a kiss or hug will spread your germs to him (or vice- versa).
Many parents recognize The Little Gym locations as safe and clean gyms for children. We work hard to ensure each and every visit lives up to your expectations. Daily and weekly cleaning and sanitation helps keep our environment sparkly and keeps the germs away.
Here’s where you can help. As with any other illness, we ask that you do not come to class if your child is coughing, sneezing, or has had a fever within the last 24 hours. Our generous make-up policy allows you to attend a make-up class by simply calling us prior to the absence.
Offering grade school (6-12 yrs) gymnasts the opportunity to come to a special camp just for them! Teachers Thuc Nhi and Pele will be working with these girls and boys on strength and skill building activities, while having a blast building your child’s confidence in their ability to excel!
Camps will be held on Wednesday, Dec 21st & 28th from 5-8pm.
Cost per day is $37.50 for members and $45.00 for non-members.
Call to register at (206) 542-2623.
Teeth are chattering, jackets are zipping, and hot cocoas are pouring.
It's definitely getting colder out there, But here at The Little Gym of Seattle, kids are staying toasty warm. Their bodies are in motion and their minds are too.
Kids in The Little Gym Parent/Child classes are exploring their worlds, gaining independence and trying new skills. The structured lessons of our Pre-K gymnastics programs are helping kids with listening skills and following directions while also emphasizing balance and coordination. Our Kindergarten level gymnastics kids are learning to work in groups and cooperate because we know controlling emotions is as important as body control and agility.
All the Flips, Twisters, Aerials, and Hot Shots of our Grade School Gymnastics programs are strengthening their bodies and getting a springboard (pun intended) of confidence. Plus, our Karate students are practically chopping firewood with their bare hands (okay, a slight exaggeration).
Don‟t forget - We also have great winter day camps coming up. And if you want to squeeze in a date night (or maybe some holiday shopping without the kids around), we‟ll be having another Parents‟ Survival Night on Saturday, December 17th.
Finally, remember that giving someone some Serious Fun is an excellent gift. We have gift certificates available if you want to give the unique gift of skill building and Three-Dimensional Learning.
'Til next time,
Your friends in fitness, fun and fundamentals at The Little Gym of Seattle
