Joey and Me Gymnastics

Our Joey and Me Class is a parent-assisted class which is designed to acclimate your infant or toddler to the gym, the feel of the equipment, allow them to explore the gym space with guidance, and provide social interaction with other children and adults. This class teaches the parents how to properly guide the child in a safe manner. As the child progresses in age, more structure is added, allowing the child to become comfortable and able to transition to a class alone. Choose your class.
