Monkey Fitness Program
All of our Monkey Fitness classes are 50 minutes, with the exception of Monkey and Parent, which is a 40 minute class. Monkey classes begin with “circle time” where the little gymnasts dance to a song or play a game to get warmed up, and do some stretching in a fun and creative way! After circle time, we move to other events, which include an obstacle course, beam, bars, trampoline, and vault. The events are set up so the kids can keep moving. On the obstacle course, they will learn cartwheels, forward rolls, backward rolls, and much more. On the beams, we set up fun props for them to walk and jump over. Sometimes they even carry beanbags on their heads and go on the high beam with the coach helping! The bars are always a favorite. This is where they get to learn pullovers, swing like a monkey, swing on the rope, and so much more. A highlight is our thirty-foot long trampoline. All kids learn tight body jumps: a tuck jump, straddle jumps, seat drops, and the kindergarten class will learn the run jump!
Monkey & Parent
Monkey & Parent is for the kids 18 months-3 years to come play in the gym with mom, dad, a grandparent, or other care giver. It is designed to improve and enhance motor skills, while enjoying time together! In this class, they will learn forward and backward rolls, and they will get to climb and jump on all our bright colored mats.
Monkey 3 is specially designed for three year olds that are full of energy! Monkey 3 combines just the right amount of beginning tumbling, balance, and coordination for those little ones who just cannot sit still. They will have fun while learning and getting stronger!
Monkey 4 & 5
Monkey 4&5 is for the little gymnast, not in kindergarten (ages 4 and 5), that wants to master the cartwheel and more fun gymnastics skills. This class is for both boys and girls. They will learn headstands, forward rolls, backward rolls, and continue building strength. When we move to the bars, you will see your child swing in different shapes; “L” swings, bell swings, turtle swings and monkey swings. Your little one will have fun while learning walks and jumps on beam. We do this in a creative way, over props or carrying a beanbag. We never forget the trampoline…the kids love to learn jumps, seat drops and seat drop table drops!
Kinder Monkey is for boys and girls in kindergarten! These little gymnasts will learn gymnastics basics, but now we will work a little more on the form (feet together and arms straight). Kinder Monkeys always love to jump and move at gymnastics after being in school all day!
Our Ninja Warrior Class is perfect for 4, 5, or 6 year old girls and boys who love to climb, jump, and test their skills on obstacle courses! Each week has a different theme such as strength, balance, or speed. Watch your little ninja grow stronger and more confident in their skills each week!
