Who we are at

The Little Gym of Midland

Happy Handstands y’all from the owner and operator, of The Little Gym of Midland!

Ginamarie Soto and her husband, residents of Midland, have an energetic four year old son. After realizing there was minimal developmental programs for children in Midland, Ginamarie immediately researched an opportunity to bring The Little Gym experience to the community of Midland. She not only wanted to provide her own son with the positive impact of The Little Gym classes but to offer the physical, cognitive and life skill to Midland’s children!

As a mother, Ginamarie embraces and strongly believes in The Little Gym philosophy which is 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.

Becoming an owner of The Little Gym of Midland is the culmination of research, and months of training with The Little Gym International team. Ginamarie is very humbled by the opportunity The Little Gym International Corporate team awarded her opportunity to open her own gym in Midland and to grow another gym for Odessa in the future.

Ginamarie’s, enthusiastic team is excited to meet each and every child in the Permian Basin at The Little Gym of Midland! So please stop by anytime, check out the classes, or even call us to plan a parents survival night and your child’s birthday!  Let’s have some “Serious Fun” Midland together!

Philosophy

Our Philosophy of Three Dimensional Learning

The Little Gym of Midland, 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

Developing strength, balance, flexibility, agility and coordination

History
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 Midland experience the benefits of Serious Fun.
