The Little Gym Story

The History of Our Children’s Gym Franchise

The Little Gym International, Inc. began as the idea of one man who wanted to do something significant for children. Robin Wes, a musician, former gymnast and kinesiologist, created The Little Gym concept in 1976 to help children develop vital motor skills in a fun, musical and noncompetitive environment. Robin envisioned a place where children could reap the benefits of physical activity, while enhancing their social, emotional and intellectual skills. Today, his original vision serves as a springboard for life’s adventures and a fun franchise opportunity.
