As parents, we all want our children to grow up healthy, strong, and confident. However, it can be challenging to find activities that not only promote these qualities, but also keep our little ones engaged and happy. That’s why we were thrilled to discover the ninja classes at Gymfinity for our 4-year-old son and pre-school gymnastics for our 2 1/2 year-old daughter.
We’ve only been attending classes for a month and our sons forest school background has definitely been a huge benefit for his strength and agility but what gymfinity has done is really help to build his strength and confidence. He is developing his skills around balance, coordination, and focus, all while having a blast with his classmates. We love seeing him so excited to go to class each week, and we’re amazed at how quickly he’s progressing. He even got star of the week at his first session – a proper proud mumma moment!!
Our daughter, who is a sassy, independent 2 1/2 year old toddler (going on threenager) has bags of confidence, but being a Covid baby hasn’t had the experience of kids classes like our son had – she has benefitted greatly from the pre-school gymnastics classes. She’s developing her strength and climbing and jumping with more confidence than when she started. She can even be found running off to walk the various high balance beams and swing on the high-bars. Her favourite thing to do though is to dive into the foam blocks always with a cheeky smile on her face! We’ve noticed that she’s become even more independent and self-assured since starting these classes, and we love watching her grow and develop. The coaches do have their work cut out with this age group as it truly is like herding cats trying to get these toddlers to follow instructions! The pre-school classes for under 3s require the parent to be on the gym floor with the child and so I’m even getting a work out – mainly chasing after my sassy 2 year old!!
One of the things we appreciate most about Gymfinity is the focus on teaching children to listen to and carry out instructions. This is such an important life skill, and it’s great to see our children learning it in a fun, supportive environment. The coaches are knowledgeable, patient, and always willing to offer individualised attention to each child acknowledging age limitations and when they might be fearful of new things, coaxing them to do it in a safe and fun way.
Of course, one of the best parts of these classes is the social aspect. Our children have made new friends whilst having lots of fun.
Overall, we can’t recommend the classes at Gymfinity highly enough. They’ve been such a positive influence on our children and a great addition to our weekend routine. We’re grateful for the opportunity to watch them grow and learn in such a supportive, fun environment. As well as the various level and ability classes which are on offer daily mon-sun, you can also book kids parties there and take advantage of the school holiday clubs. They are even opening a nursery very soon!
If you’re looking for a great activity for your little ones, we highly recommend giving Gymfinity a try! Why not book in for a free trial first, all details are available on their website which you can find at the link below.
