Look who’s coming to town! Ipswich is getting the coolest gym for the littlies – MyFirstGym Redbank Plains is opening soon so we thought we would chat with the team behind it and find out what it is all about.
What is MyFirstGym?
MyFirstGym is a children’s fitness centre that provides age specific sports to children 7 months – 13 years of age. With a vision to create an engaging activity hub for children, we inspire movement and encourage progression by providing a fun place where children love to play and parents love to stay!
Why did you want to bring the concept to the Ipswich area?
Owners Greg, Jess, Lachlan & Morgan have collectively over 20 years experience running adult fitness clubs of their own. Our team has been brought together with one common goal in mind – to get kids moving in a secure and fun environment. Communities we live in are continually evolving and one of the things children are not doing enough is physically moving, we are here to change this! With 9 out of 10 kids currently not getting the recommended amount of movement daily and obesity becoming increasingly common in children, MyFirstGym has made it our mission to be the leader in children’s fitness.
What should families expect when they enter your doors?
So much positivity! Making it fun is our number 1 job. A one-stop fitness shop for children, we inspire movement and encourage progression in a fun place.
We cover age specific classes and sports for gross motor skills and development as well as specialty classes. Specialty classes include, dance, cheer, ninja warrior, martial arts, yoga, bootcamp & parkour (all under the one roof).
We’ve also introduced a revolutionary MyMovementBuddy wearable technology too. This system sets the MyFirstGym club apart, and is one of the first wearable technology solutions to exist in a children’s activity environment. Each of our little members will have their very own MyFirstGym account and through a simple movement tracking system they will be encouraged to reach daily, weekly and monthly movement targets.
When will it be open?
We are scheduled to open early November 2018. We’ll be taking over the existing Anytime Fitness Club space and transforming it into a state of the art kids Fitness facility at Town Square Shopping Centre Redbank Plains.
What will it cost for kids to attend?
Foundation memberships are now available. With 2 membership options; month to month membership (Flexi) & 6 month membership. These will start at $24.95/week and include up to 3 classes + unlimited free play! We have a limited number of foundation memberships available and reservations are booking out quickly!
