Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Raleigh-Cary

Hello!  My name is Connie Tator.  My husband, Neil and I are the proud owners of The Little Gym of  Raleigh-Cary since 2019!  

Our gym is led by the awesome Mr. Brandyn. He's been a part of TLG since 2011!

We are so grateful for our The Little Gym and passionate about all that we get to bring to the  Raleigh-Cary community each and every day.   We have an amazing team that helps children with gymnastics, dance, karate, sports and balance and coordination skills.  We also help our younger members reach important developmental milestones in our parent/child classes.  We love the many lives we touch and the countless kids we have made an impact on over the years.  It doesn't get any better than that!  Just know that when you become a part of TLG, you become our family for life. 

We can't wait to get to know you and your little.  Call us to chat! Or, come on by for a visit.

Happy Handstands!        



Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Raleigh-Cary, 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.

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 Raleigh-Cary experience the benefits of Serious Fun.

We're proud of
