The Little Gym Windsor

Muddy says: Fun just got serious at this inclusive, friendly, go-the-extra-mile gym specially designed for kids aged 4m-12yrs to get active, learn and laugh… a lot.

Getting our kids to move more and stare at a screen a lot less, is hard. Especially when parents are juggling work and life admin. But the hardest part is finding an activity that actually floats their boat.

Say hello to The Little Gym in Windsor, offering gymnastics in a space specially designed for little people, aged 4 months to 12 years, to help them to develop physically, mentally and have a ton of fun. It also gets them in the mindset that health and fitness gives your the giggles rather than the grumps. Good habits start young, I say.

The Little Gym offers unique age-appropriate classes in a state-of-the-art gym, full of music, movement and laughter. The aim is not for the to be the next Simone Biles (although it wouldn’t surprise me if one of the kids does become an Olympic gold medallist) but to learn essential life skills – confidence, self-esteem, courage, perseverance, resilience, team work and listening. Who doesn’t want all of those things in spades for their kids?

It looks so good, do you think they’ll notice me in my spangly leotard doing cartwheels? Apparently so. But that’s not to say the grown ups have been forgotten. Parents can hang out in the lobby area and catch snooze on the sofa, grab a coffee, whip out the laptop, hit the shops in Windsor or just watch your bendy minis living their best life through the floor-to-ceiling glass wall.

For all the whizz bangery of the facilities, it’s worth noting it’s the teachers who bring this place to life. The curriculum has been developed by child development experts and the staff are the superheroes who bring this to life, running fun, creative classes, full of challenges, praise and encouragement.

Classes run Monday to Saturday, there’s a family membership programme, they host birthday parties and holiday camps for 3 years +. The camps can be booked for half days, a full day, a few days, the whole week, or more. So frazzled parents can recharge while the kids burn off some energy. Everyone wins.
