Our Story

Who we are at

The Little Gym of Jersey City

Welcome to The Little Gym of Jersey City! 

My name is Danielle Sporcic, the Gym Director, and along with my husband, Tim, we are excited to be the owners of The Little Gym of Jersey City. We are the proud parents of two amazing kids. When we first experienced the positive impact of The Little Gym classes with our son, we were inspired and knew we had to bring the Serious Fun to the children of Jersey City, our beloved home!

We strongly believe in providing a nurturing environment, where children explore their physical development, while also growing socially, emotionally, and intellectually.  Inspiring children to develop and grow in a positive, non-competitive environment is a dream come true for us, and we are humbled by the opportunity to influence the development of your children.

We love Jersey City and can't wait to raise the next confident Citizen Kids in our community! Feel free to swing by and see what all the fun is about!  

Happy Handstands!

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Jersey City, 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 Jersey City experience the benefits of Serious Fun.

We're proud of
