My Gym of West Orange


#HipNJ sat down with Gina Simmons, the owner of My Gym in West Orange, to talk about a new, fun way to keep your kids active and healthy!

My Gym is a children’s fitness center that offers a wide variety of activities and classes from “Little Bundles” to “Cardio Kids.” Parents can bring their children to My Gym as early as 6 weeks, where they participate in songs, swings, dances, and infant-safe rides.

“I think it’s really important, at a very young age even, to have children associate fitness with fun,” explains Gina. “My Gym’s main concept is to build confidence and self-esteem, because if they have that, they can do anything in their lives.”

For the younger tots, the focus is on songs, visual stimulation, dances, and just plain fun! As children get older, the activities become more athletic and they can engage in classes such as “All Stars Sports” and “Champions.” Kids gain strength, balance, coordination, agility, and flexibility while hanging out with their friends in a playful, encouraging environment.

My Gym of West Orange stands out with it’s expert staff, headed by Gina Simmons. Gina has a B.F.A. in Theatre with a background in children’s musical theatre and dance. Gina uses her talents to inspire children and help them lead a healthy, happy lifestyle from the beginning. Her background makes her the perfect fit to lead in My Gym’s award-winning programs including classes, camps, and birthday parties!

“It’s so important that they (the My Gym staff) have some sort of Early Childhood development background or physical education background. Also, often some background in theater or dance,” says Gina.

My Gym of West Orange is currently offering some amazing specials, including $50 off the One Time Lifetime Family Membership and $50 off the first four weeks (with a minimum of an 8-week commitment). Also, with summer just around the corner, they are offering 30% off their summer camp price.

For any parent or guardian, this is a must-see segment!
