My First Gym

Keep little ones of all ages on their toes with our exciting classes. We encourage learning and skill-building through exercise, but most importantly, our kids have serious fun!

We’re All About Helping Kiwi Kids Grow Up Fit And Healthy
We offer dedicated classes for kids from 6 weeks right up to 13 years. This means your child is developing the skills they need at an appropriate time, alongside kids their age. We aim to get them interested in fitness from an early age, in a secure and fun environment. You and your child can bond and play together, or we can take care of them while you run errands or have some time to yourself!

Find Out What Your Child Will Do In Our Classes

For babies and toddlers:
As a parent you have one of the most important jobs out there because you are responsible for your child’s development.The majority of this happens most rapidly in the first five years. Up to 90% of your child’s co-ordination is developed before the age of 12 so it is important to get them active as early as possible. At My First Gym we want to empower you, as parents and guardians, to raise happy, healthy and confident children and to give them every advantage towards their future.
