Boost Your Child's Academic Performance Through Fun Health & Fitness Exercises at The Little Gym of The Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York

The Little Gym of The Upper East Side is here to help your little one put his or her best foot forward - not just in their kids' gym, but in the classroom too! With a host of kids classes, including kids gymnastics, kids cheerleading and karate classes, these health and fitness experts will get your kids energized while they have some serious fun!

But the bustling excitement and family-friendly activities you'll find at The Little Gym doesn't only matter in terms of how much fun your child is having. Recent studies conducted by the University of Illinois have demonstrated that among elementary school children, participation in a physically-active after-school program improved levels of “executive function”, which contributes to reaching academic goals. Monitoring each child’s ability to switch between tasks and to comprehend reading materials, those with an increased exercise routine had superior abilities to ignore distractions and react quickly to questions. 

Who knew that The Little Gym’s health and fitness enthusiasts have been right all along?

While parents may sometimes worry that extended playtime negatively impacts their child's academic prospects, with this new research they can relax in knowing that time spent on physical activity is rewarding on multiple levels. 

With The Little Gym as an after-school resource, parents can rest assured in knowing that their kiddos are receiving important academic preparation - all while having a blast doing it! In fact, The Little Gym’s focus on fun is a central part of their philosophy, which is aimed towards boosting children’s confidence with welcoming and non-competitive exercise routines.
