The Little Gym, which operates a Brentwood location, ranked No. 1 in the Children’s Fitness category in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Franchises List, otherwise known as Franchise 500. This is the fourth consecutive year the franchise company has earned this ranking.
“We are pleased to be recognized with our parent company as a leader in this category because it reinforces that parents are seeing the benefits of what we offer their children,” said Jim Lark of The Little Gym of Brentwood. “And while Brentwood parents know The Little Gym as a great place for children, they should also know that our children’s fitness and skill development concept is also receiving recognition on a national level.”
The magazine also noted the overall strength of children-focused franchising, calling The Little Gym a leader in the growing children’s services segment. According to Lark, its programs are curriculum-based and make skill-building fun for students and parents alike. Individualized attention builds the students’ confidence and lays the foundation for success in other arenas of life, Lark added.
According to Paul Dickison of The Little Gym International, “Just as each of The Little Gym locations takes pride in helping children soar, the company’s franchise concept has allowed hundreds of entrepreneurs to satisfy their dreams of business ownership in their local towns. The company’s core belief in structured curriculum for skill development has made The Little Gym a valued partner with parents who want to provide the best development opportunities for their children.”
The Little Gym offers classes for children from 4 months of age to 12 years. Programs range from parent/child classes in early motor-skill development to grade-school gymnastics, sports-skills development, karate, cheerleading and dance. These programs are built on a structured curriculum in which kids progressively build skills that lead to enhanced self-confidence and socialization.
