My Gym in Doha
This gym for tiny tots is putting some much-needed fun into fitness Discuss this article
Sending your kids for a run-around outside isn’t always easy in Doha. The weather, for one thing, prevents that for half of the year, while dangerous traffic or lack of a garden space can get in the way for many parents.
My Gym offers a welcome solution, and is working to prevent the rise of childhood obesity, one kiddie workout class at a time. Aimed at kids aged six months up to ten years, the wide range of age-appropriate classes incorporate dance, relays, games, gymnastics, sports and more.
Keeping your kids active means they develop crucial skills and abilities like strength, balance, co-ordination and agility, but classes at My Gym can also be beneficial to their social skills, confidence and self-esteem, as they interact and play with the other children.
This won’t be your average workout, either. Each one is adapted to make it fun and engaging for tots – Zumba for example, includes interactive games and activities, while classes for toddlers like Tiny Tykes, Waddlers and Gymsters feature songs, dances, puppet shows and more.
Karate, ballet and even kickboxing are also on offer for ages as young as four.
Your kids will have a ball, and, most importantly, with such well-trained, patient staff at the helm you know that your little ones are in safe hands – so you can enjoy the classes, too.
