Our Story

Who we are at

The Little Gym of Abington

The Little Gym of Abington is owned by Kitty Moon Dorsey. She bought the gym in June of 2021.

Catie was a student scholar athlete at Duke University, whose love for gymnastics and kids drew her to this business over 23 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, laughter, and hilarious things kids say 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 "helping" professions, as well as two daughters in college studying Pre Med and Nursing. 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".

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.

45 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-five years later, children at The Little Gym of Abington experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
