MyGym Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Back in 1983, a Los Angeles couple and their close friends saw the need for a place where parents can bring their kids for a different kind of experience. A place where, instead of pinball machines and video games, they would be introduced to a world of fun – and fitness. Thirty years later, My Gym Children’s Fitness Centers are community cornerstones throughout North America and the world – and the millions of children who were early members are now parents with kids of their own discovering just how cool being active and healthy can be.

Featuring, a unique, innovative and ever-changing fitness program for kids, My Gym has been at the forefront of providing the best fun place for kids to remain active, while successfully combating statistics that estimate nearly 16% of children and adolescents aged 2-12 years are overweight – and even more are at risk of becoming overweight.

At My Gym, children keep fit, and families grow closer through introductory sports and gymnastics, games, original music and specially-crafted play and socialization activities led by caring and committed My Gym trainers. The result is good health, laughter and learning, and a lifelong love of fitness and activity.

Throughout 2013, My Gym locations across North America will celebrate thirty years of providing fitness and fun to families by offering money saving discounts on classes, conducting a search to crown My Gym’s Fit & Healthy Family, encouraging families committed to an active lifestyle to “show off’ and share their own fitness and health tips with the world and, in August, participating My Gym locations will be throwing themselves 30th Birthday Party Open House celebrations inviting all families to attend for free!

“This is an exciting year for My Gym, as we celebrate turning thirty years young. Thirty years have taught us how vital an active lifestyle truly is, and that there is no substitute for the rewards of keeping fit as a family. We look forward to expanding our message of fun and fitness to families throughout the world all year long, to sharing their great ideas on how to be healthy and active. Through our money saving offers and Birthday Party Open House Celebration, our goal is to introduce the magic of My Gym to new family members,” said Cory Bertisch, CEO of My Gym Children’s Fitness Center.
