Benefits to Center
Gym On Wheels and Why
For over a decade, Gym On Wheels has provided a quality gymnastics and physical skills program featuring recreational gymnastics, aerobic exercise, group games, music and song, in a fun, motivating and nurturing atmosphere to thousands of toddler preschool and pre-K children in New York and Connecticut, in centers just like yours.
The Gym On Wheels curriculum adds significant value to your existing program, provides an additional selling feature to prospective customers, and generally offers a much needed and well appreciated break to staff while our classes are in session.
We Bring the Gym to You
Gym On Wheels classes are conducted in your facility. We can set up practically anywhere! All we need is an open space of 320 square feet (16X20) to give your children a structured gym class with a focus on physical, social and intellectual development.
Boy, Are We Flexible
We can customize our program to your center’s needs, whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or summer classes.
No Cost and a Profit
Due to the affordability of the Gym On Wheels classes, our program is actually a profit center for many of the facilities we serve. We will be happy to discuss how this works with you.
We Do All the Paperwork
Gym On Wheels takes care of all marketing material, i.e., sign up flyers and posters. We provide you with updated class lists during each session and we process all payments.
Benefits to Parents
Gym On Wheels classes are much more affordable when comparing the cost of classes to those held at children’s gyms in in their area. Something a working parent can appreciate.
Our classes are conducted at your child’s center while you are at work. No need for evening or weekend trips to the local children’s gym.
Since the classes are held in your child’s center with one of his teachers present, they will feel more at ease and secure.
All our classes are conducted in a motivating, self-esteem building, fun, and nurturing atmosphere by a CPR and USA Gymnastics certified instructor.
This isn’t just playtime
"Gym On Wheels classes are structured. We teach children the skills used for such equipment as the pummel horse, high bars, balance beam, parallel bars, springboard and more. Magically, monkey jumps become cartwheels, and donkey kicks become handstands. Everything we do and everything we use including our games and props, help develop and enhance eye, hand, foot and gross motor coordination, all the necessary skills needed to participate in sports of all kinds."
Gymnastics and Physical Development
"Between the ages of two and five, Gymnastics helps children develop their fundamental movement skills. Gym On Wheels classes teach children the physical motor skills that enhance coordination, balance, speed, agility, rhythm and power. Our classes also provide physical endurance, strength and flexibility. This helps build bone density and helps develop muscle growth."
The social benefits of gymnastics
"Attending a regular gymnastics and physical skills program helps teach children to follow direction, listen, take turns, respect others and work with others as a team. Our classes require concentration and commitment, they help children become more confident, and they show children that the journey is as important as the destination."
The physical benefits of gymnastics
"Children’s activities today involve less and less physical movement. This only adds to the alarming rate of obesity amongst young children. Gymnastic classes encourage an active lifestyle, and helps establish a positive attitude towards physical fitness."
Gymnastics and intellectual development
"Studies show that children who are involved in an early childhood movement program like gymnastics develop better cognitive skills and have longer attention spans, increased communication skills, better general problem solving skills, and improved self-esteem."
What’s included in Gym On Wheels classes
"Motor development activities, rhythm activities, creative movement, music, basic gymnastic skills, stretching exercises, aerobics and group games."
Gymnastics for toddlers
"Some of the benefits for toddlers participating in Gym on Wheels classes include learning how to listen and follow directions, interacting with other children in a team atmosphere, developing patience while waiting for their turn, and learning how to reference colors. Their strength will improve from gripping, swinging, and hanging onto bars; their visual tracking will improve from using scarves and balls, which also help with eye-hand-foot coordination; and, they’ll build muscle memory while learning the basics of gymnastics."
Gym On Wheels classes and safety
"Gym On Wheels instructors are trained in the required spotting techniques for all skills included in our curriculum. Our instructors are USA Gymnastics Safety and CPR/First Aid certified. Only equipment that is age and skill level appropriate is used which creates an atmosphere which is more developmentally user friendly. Our equipment is smaller and lower to the ground creating a much less intimidating and safer environment. "
