    We were invited to MyGym for a “trial session” for my youngest daughter, age 20 months. Out of necessity, I brought my 5 year old daughter with me. My oldest was told by the staff that she could play for a bit, but that older kids had to go up front and color or something while the structured activities (circle time, etc…) were going on. She did this. After circle time, my oldest came out and was with me and my 20 month old (pushing the little one on the swing). A Mygym staff came over and told her that older kids couldn’t be on the floor. I usually would just say “ok”, but I’d noticed that there was another older sibling that had been out there with her mom and brother the entire time, and no one had said anything to them whatsoever. So I asked “why does my daughter have to go up there by herself and not this other girl”? The response was basically “uh, because, uh, she’s, uh, helping her mom”. Whatever. I could understand if my kid was playing on the stuff or whatever, but she was literally standing next to me the entire time. If you’re going to have a “no older siblings” rule in place, then you need to enforce it across the board and not selectively. As for the activities, my youngest daughter didn’t seem to enjoy it, so I can’t give that much of a good review either. She liked the slide, but I can find a slide that isn’t going to cost me $60 a month almost anywhere else.

    CLEAN, SAFE, FUN–I have been taking my son to MyGym in Mandarin on San Jose since he was nine months old and we both love it. We explored several baby-learning venues – we visited music classes, mommy-and-me groups, and a few children’s gym franchises – but MyGym stood out head-and-shoulders above the rest. It seemed to “have it all”, offering the perfect combination of physical activities, social interactions and structured learning (songs, stories, dances, etc.).Parents take their little ones here to participate in an hour worth of exercise and activities with children in their age range while trained coaches facilitate games and activities. The play area is spacious and is designed with your kids’ fun and more importantly, safety in mind. The staff rearranges the space each week so it’s always a different experience. During each class there are special activities designed to encourage your child’s balance and strength. In the past four months we’ve been attending they haven’t repeated any activity/song/dance/puppet show. My son loves exploring the play area and equipment, including the trapeze bars, swinging ropes, spring boards, slides , wedge mats, rock climbing wall, trampoline, ball pit, swings, basketball hoop, gymnastic mats, parallel bars, zip line, and more.We found that besides the exercise benefits (and the fact that he has takes a really long nap afterward – yippee!), it is also aiding in the development of his social and cognitive skills. I love the social interaction my son gets as much as the physical activity. He gets to engage with other children his age and learn important skills such as sharing. It’s great for me too, a work-from-home mom who has very limited adult interaction time. I enjoy chatting with the other moms who are experiencing the same challenges that I am (sleep schedules, nursing, etc.). The coaches are awesome with kids; every time we go in they are so enthusiastic, caring and professional. Coaches Jordan, Kayla and John in particular are outstanding and fabulous with kids! Just like an adult gym, participation requires a monthly membership fee (which is very reasonable in my opinion) that guarantees you one structured session a week with various “free-play” options. I took my son to one “free-play” and will not attend another one. The “free-play” is open to all age ranges and the night we went there were lots of older children running around out of control– literally running – and not watching out for a toddling who is learning to walk. We left after about 15 minutes because I was afraid he was going to get trampled, knocked over or hit in the face with a fast flying ball. That aside, we love MyGym and feel so fortunate we found this place!

    Unfortunately, we have not had the same great experience with MyGym as others who have commented and that is mostly because..we have not been able to get in touch with anyone there! My husband and I have been calling both Jacksonville locations several times a day in the past week, emailed them and left voice mails and to date, they have been completely silent. I cannot comment on their services but since customer engagement is so poor, i would not expect a wonderful experience.
