Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Littleton

Dave, Leslie, Austin and Cam

The Little Gym of Littleton is owned by Dave and Leslie Smith. They took over the gym beginning in January 2014. Mr. Dave had been the Gym Director in The Little Gym system for 9 years prior to purchasing the gym. They have two boys of their own named Austin and Cameron that keep them very busy. The rest of the Littleton staff is made up of a team of seriously fun professionals with backgrounds ranging from physical education to gymnastics to exercise science. The team has been together a long time and they love working with children! From 4 month olds to 12 year olds our crew has it covered.  You're invited to stop by the gym or call us anytime. We look forward to meeting you and scheduling a FREE INTRODUCTORY VISIT so that you can experience The Little Gym for yourself!

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Littleton, 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

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 Littleton experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
