My Gym Fitness Gear Brings Healthy Fitness AND Stimulation to Families Worldwide! (Giveaway!)

I was provided with products for My Gym in order to write this review. All opinions are my own, thank you!

My Gym!


Established in 1983, My Gym [named #1 Children’s Fitness Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2014] is a leading fitness center destination for children with over 325 locations worldwide with over 30 new locations planned for addition in the next 12 months.  

Combining innovative, early physical education/pre-gymnastics classes with state-of-the-art facilities My Gym is set to empower children ages 6 weeks through 10 years by helping them acquire the skills, confidence, and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults, with age appropriate classes and parties to stimulate and educate throughout...

My My Gym experience!

I have 3 biological children and a step son and if there is anything I have learnt over the years it is that getting up off of their butts, off of the computer and engaging their body [and mind] in other ways can sometimes be all the difference between lazy fun-times with a gadget and learning, having fun and staying active with a little imagination and MY GYM!


Well, My Gym children's fitness accessories are a great way to bring life and fun to activities and I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out some bean bags, rubber rings and a ball from them, which, when combined, makes for a fabulous time. 

I first utilised these as an added party game, where each person would have a team, a ring and a bean bag - there were 2 teams in total and the first person in each team would throw the bean bag, get it to land on the hoop and then run over, collect it and then tag the person behind them. Once all members of a team had finished, the game ended and they were the winners!

This game encourages working as a team, hand-eye coordination, active fitness running to and from the ring and patience. This is a simple, fun game for all and perfect for a party setting! 


Another way to get interactive is with the ball - my youngest 2 children (1.5 and 4 years old) like to hold, throw, catch and balance with the ball as well as trying out some of the activities recommended on the My Gym activity list that was included in our review kit! 

Simple activities like rolling a ball, squeezing the ball, raising and lowering the ball etc are all stimulating and great sensory exercises! 

There are so many things you can do with a child and a bean bag, some rubber rings and a ball, and they can have so much fun and not even realise it until it is over!

Here are some great facts that you may like to know!
  • My Gym launched their new interactive Building Blocks Program to all enrolled children ages 2.5 years and older. The program helps children work toward specific milestones in their physical, cognitive, and emotional development and then celebrates their achievements with stickers, progression ribbons, medals, trophies, graduation certificates and more in periodic Building Blocks Acknowledgement Ceremonies.  
  • The My Gym television show, “My Gym At Home,” airs on BabyFirst, a 24/7 channel focusing on children’s development.

My favorite activity I have done with my 16 month old so far is actually one we did this morning-I created a parent-tot obstacle course. It was a blast!

My kids and I love doing all sorts of fitness activities. We really love walking. We also love to throw around a Frisbee or ball. Doing jump rope and many other activities.
