Entrepreneur Magazine Ranks The Little Gym No. 1 in Children's Fitness

Gym is Honored as Top Children's Fitness Franchise for the Fourth Consecutive Year

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The challenging economy has taken its toll on businesses nationwide in the last couple of years. But as hundreds of businesses have struggled to stay afloat, one franchise company continues to show signs of success.

The Little Gym 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," says Paul Dickison of The Little Gym International. "And, while 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 Dickison, 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, Dickison added.

Dickison says, "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 four 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 where kids progressively build skills, thus leading to enhanced self-confidence and socialization.
