Physical activity is imperative for the growth and development of your child. From infants to toddlers, it’s important for your little one to stay active in order to learn balance, motor skills, and flexibility. My Gym Children’s Fitness Center® in Potomac offers a comprehensive physical activity program for children from six weeks up to 10 years old. If you’re looking to increase your child’s physical activity and social skills, join the number of other local parents and sign your child up for a wide variety of fitness classes.
Depending on how old your little one is, he or she will benefit from a number of unique classes tailored around their individual developmental stage. Once your child develops hand, arm, and body control, they will greatly benefit from stretches, balancing, agility skills, and tumbling. From active crawling to walking and running, as your child grows he or she will develop their fine and gross motor skills such as kicking a ball, building a block tower, riding a tricycle, and walking up the stairs.
When children reach the age of two, they tend to be more explorative with their movements. Now is the time to sing, dance, swing, play games, and take part in gymnastic movements. From two to three years of age kids will expand on these gymnastic movements and begin learning skills associated with fine and gross motor proficiency to strengthen their manipulative skills.
These fitness classes will not only keep your child having fun, they will also help develop their active and healthy lifestyles. These fantastic classes from this fitness center give your child the boost they need to grow.
