Our Story

Who we are atThe Little Gym of Idaho Falls

We are excited to announce that The Little Gym is Coming to Idaho Falls in MARCH of 2018. Our website is now accepting online enrollments so check out the class schedule and enroll your child in our 9 week Spring class season, book a birthday party today or sign up for our first Parent survival night.

The Little Gym of Idaho Falls will cater to families with children ages 4 months to 12 years old who seek three-dimensional learning opportunities for their children.  Our programs are designed to build physical skills, such as strength, flexibility, balance, rhythm, coordination and increase muscle tone, as well as to build intellectual skills, such as listening, problem solving, longer attention spans and the ability to follow directions. Social skills are enhanced with peer interaction and peer modeling in a safe, fun environment free of competition and judgement.

I have been a licensed pediatric physical therapist for over ten years and am the new owner of The Little Gym of Idaho Falls. As a pediatric physical therapist, I  believe that movement brings motion to life and smiles to children and parents alike. The Little Gym of Idaho Falls will bring children in our community a safe space for both structured classes and free play. As children’s opportunities for physical fitness & play have decreased over the past few decades, I am passionate about bringing this program to Idaho Falls. The Little Gym to Idaho Falls will offer our kids some SERIOUS FUN while fostering new friendships and keeping them active.

UPDATE: February 15, 2018:

We are now targeting a March 31st OPEN HOUSE from 2-5pm with classes starting on Monday April 2nd. Our Spring semester will still run 9 weeks from March 26th - June 2nd. Enrollment in any class includes one weekly classes plus additional "practice time" opportunities to come into the gym and work on the gross motor skills learned in class along with "Build and Play" structured LEGO activities (for kids 19 months and older) to develop fine motor skills. We will also host member only parties and events so join us & become a member today.

The 9 class Spring Season is only $148.50 and may be split into two installments of $78 due at the time of enrollment (to secure your spot in the class) and then again on the 25th of April.

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Idaho Falls, 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.

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 Idaho Falls experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
