Children in the Magnolia area have a new option for learning gymnastics skills with the opening of the Little Gym in Interbay.
Bonnie and Kevin Nasr have owned a Little Gym franchise in Seattle for the past 18-years. That gym in the Roosevelt neighborhood is the longest originally owned Little Gym in the world. Their second location is at 2213 15th Ave. West on 15th Ave. W, next to Alpine Hut.
The Nasrs say the mission of Little Gym is to develop confidant, successful kids through gymnastics. Children are taught physical dexterity, along with listening, sharing, and overall life skills.
Children from four months to 12-years are welcome at the Little Gym. Parents help guide children under age three in classes. Extensively trained teachers are on hand during all sessions to lead everyone through their paces.
The focus is on what they call "serious fun." They offer a structured curriculum featuring tumbling and other floor skills, balance beam, parallel bars, rings, and vault to improve strength and steadiness.
The company started in Bellevue 35 years ago and there are now more than 300 Little Gym’s world-wide. Check out their website here.
