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.
The Little Gym® is now the leading children’s enrichment company and offers a unique business franchise opportunity. Over the past four decades, The Little Gym programs have helped millions of kids experience the thrill of achievement, develop new skills, and find new confidence. Along the way, they have worked hand-in-hand with our franchise owners, helping them to build rewarding businesses while positively impacting their local communities.
