Perhaps you've heard that The Little Gym is "only about sports and games," and that it does not foster social development, or that it does not promote cognitive development? Nancy Bigley will be here to bust these myths and share the truth about the franchisors comprehensive, holistic approach to development!

Nancy is a highly experienced, dedicated franchising expert who brings her passion for health and wellness to her current role as the CEO of The Little Gym. She has over 30 years of "in the trenches" experience in various franchise industries. Her love for fitness and wellness led her to join Unleashed Brands, the parent company of The Little Gym, where she now focuses on helping children develop physically, cognitively, and socially. Nancy aims to create a lasting impact on the lives of children from as young as four months old.

The Value of The Little Gym
The Little Gym offers an affordable option for parents seeking a comprehensive growth experience for their children, with programs typically priced around $110 per month. Investing in programs that promote healthy and holistic development in children ultimately has a significant impact on their overall well-being, academic achievement, and personal growth. Bigley focuses on how their programs emphasize consistency, cultivate good habits, and instill a sense of discipline in children. "Our franchisees do an amazing job of embracing the families and handling things; we take care of the kids and make things happen," she states.

Building Confidence
Confidence is a critical component of a child's development, as it shapes their ability to face challenges, problem-solve, and engage in healthy social interactions. Fostering confidence in kids helps them develop self-assuredness and a positive self-image, enabling them to cope with various situations and establish fulfilling relationships with others. Nancy spoke about the critical role confidence-building plays within The Little Gym's programs. She explained how their curriculum is designed to support children in developing confidence through movement-based activities, emphasizing the importance of creating a safe and supportive environment for every child to succeed. Through this approach, The Little Gym encourages well-rounded development in children, not only in terms of physical ability, but also in cognitive and social aptitude.

  • How The Little Gym prioritizes physical, cognitive, and social development for well-rounded growth.
