(18 March 2020) LATEST UPDATE: The Kids Gym has closed temporarily in light of the above.
The Kids Gym aims to encourage every child, regardless of their ability, to be active and embrace exercise and fitness as a lifestyle option. This child-orientated gym offers children the opportunity to exercise as and when it suits them in a sophisticated and technologically advanced venue. The Kids Gym caters for all children 18 months – 15 years old.
What kids do after school, is just as important as what they do in school. The specially developed programs are designed to teach basic gymnastic skills, strength, co-ordination, ball skills and general physical fitness that prepare children for all sports. The aim is to empower children through the physical literacy program that is on offer.
All sessions are under the supervision/instruction of ‘trainers’ who deliver age appropriate programmes so that the important physical stepping stones are developed. The staff are trained to be role models with strong values and have the skills to execute programs ensuring that the children are kept excited, motivated and safe, in order to nurture not only physical literacy, but also emotional development. The Kids Gym provide turn-key holistic services in support of the overall wellness and development of every child whether they have special needs or special talents.
The Kids Gym is a non-competitive, non-judgemental environment – where success is not defined by trophies on the shelves, but by the smiling faces that walk in and out of their doors each and every day.
The Kids Gym offers 6 Zones of Activity:
Ninja Zone – A thrilling new sport which is a fusion of gymnastics, martial arts, obstacle training, freestyle movement and tumbling. Ninja Zone gives children the confidence to take on challenges and contributes to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Ball Zone – an area dedicated to age appropriate ball skills such as throwing, catching, kicking and hitting. All fundamental ball skills are taught as well as sport specific skills.
Jumping Zone – offers a 12m trampoline track and a 12m airtrack (spring mat) where children can easily and safely learn to jump and develop basic agility skills, necessary for strength and gross motor skill development. There are also dedicated tumbling classes where kids can learn to do somersaults and much more.
Balance and Hanging Zone – this area focuses on hanging and balance skills, kids can walk on slack-lines, hang upside down on the hanging ropes, rings and trapezes, with different heights and difficulties for different ages.
Fitness Zone – offers imported kid’s size fitness equipment from the USA, which includes treadmills, exercise bikes, moonwalkers and rowing machines (all age appropriate).
