When my oldest daughter turned three, I enrolled her in Charlotte Junior Gym after she attended a precious birthday party at their amazing facilities. The party was super fun, well organized, and full of energy. Kids jumped, swung and climbed all over the colorful gym to the sound of upbeat music. Laughter literally rebounded off the walls. It was such a happy place and such a happy party. We were hooked!
The class quickly became the highlight of my daughter’s week. She couldn’t wait to let loose, jump and play in complete kiddie freedom. I loved her smile as we pulled into the gym parking lot and her beaming pride as she walked in for another round of awesomeness. Recognizing the kind leadership of the staff took no time at all. They would walk my daughter to my car with great stories of her accomplishments during the class. When she tried something new, the staff always shared the news!
During the months my daughter was enrolled in classes at Charlotte Junior Gym, I was struggling with infertility. It was a tough time and dark spot in my life. The staff at the gym knew my pain and were so caring and supportive. Many, many times after I dropped of my daughter, I would run to an appointment with my fertility doctor only to learn disappointing news. But, I would pull up to the gym at pickup and be greeted with love and support and a very happy child. It was so uplifting!
I became pregnant and I was thrilled to share my news with Willow (the sunny face and owner of Charlotte Junior Gym). She was so happy for our family. It was in the Charlotte Junior Gym parking lot when I found out I was having twins!
Sutton outgrew Charlotte Junior Gym and I was away for a few years when my twins were too little. This fall we are back! Back home. My twins are registered for a pre-gym class and are enjoying their experience with the same passion as my oldest. And, why wouldn’t they?! The gym is paradise for kids!
My twins love the open playtime where they can enjoy the equipment and try new things. The teachers assist and guide where needed (always with the strong ratio of one teacher to five students). They also adore the group activities like jumping rope, parachute work, music, rhythm sticks and so much more!
The hour and a half class gives me just enough time to run to the grocery store or hit a few errands sans the kiddies. Win for everyone!
Smarties, check our Charlotte Junior Gym and get in on the fun! The programming is special and uniquely its own!
