My Gym Children’s Fitness Center -Review and Giveaway #giveaway #mygymfun

Have you ever done a great video with your kids and lost it? I have. In fact I did an awesome video for this very product along with some great photos of the product as we were opening them up and now I have nothing. Grr...this is what happens when you lend the computer to your kids. Changes will be made but I digress because this is not a post about my kids and my computer but about fitness for kids.

My Gym Children's Fitness Center is a worldwide privately owned companies that focuses on  children's fitness classes, birthday parties, camps and other special events. Unfortunately there are none near me.

My Gym looks like a lot of fun for kids 6-13 years of age that is run by dedicated fitness pros who want to show kids how to keep moving and have fun. 



Looks like a great time right?! My kids would love to have a party here. If you go to My Gym or if you don't have one near you, there is still a way to get kids moving. Get them off the couch, away from the computer, iPad or Kindle. They need to keep moving because good habits start early and I am in dire need of more ways to get my kids away from the outlets. Check out these My Gym Products.

About the Products:



Valued at $9.95. Now parents and children can extend the benefits from elements of My Gym’s unique program by bringing home the foam rings we use in class.

Valued at $13.95. Now parents and children can extend the benefits from elements of My Gym’s unique program by bringing home the Gator Skin Softi Foam Ball we use in class. This ball is sealed in retail packaging with an exclusive My Gym insert containing activities that enhance children’s My Gym experience, further develop semi-complex skills, increase fine and gross motor skills, and expand imaginations.








In the video that is now missing I spoke about how my son who started OT at the age of 3 had fabulous Occupational Therapists who used these very items to help him with his motor and fine motor skills.  

The video contained my kids doing activities from the activity cards that came with the ball and rings and having a blast.

The Rings
  1. Balance the ring on your head
  2. Pretend it is a steering wheel and drive around the living room
  3. Spin it around your wrist
  4. Hold hands and make it go from one wrist and up the arm and onto the other persons and up the arm
  5. Put it in front of your face and pretend it is a frame. Now do sad, happy, funny, etc faces.

The Ball
  1. Hold the ball between your knees and jump down the hallway
  2. Sit on the ball like it is a chair
  3. See how many circles you can jump around with the ball between your knees
  4. Roll the ball up your body from head to toes
  5. Lie on your back and hold the ball with your feet. Pass it to your hands and back or pass it to another kid and back using just your feet. 
The ball and rings came with three detailed pages of activities to improve physical skills, hand-eye coordination and fine and gross motor skills.

You are only restricted by your imagination. 

My son's Occupational Therapist asked for a link to the site so she can check it out and you should too! 

Find out of there is a gym near you. You can even get a free class to check them out.
