The Little Gym Hits the Growth Trail as Top Franchise

The Little Gym Hits the Growth Trail as Top Franchise

The Little Gym is primed for supercharged franchise expansion as the world's premier enrichment and physical development center for children ages four months through 12, having signed nearly 20 new franchise agreements in the first half of 2022.

The iconic, industry-leading franchise continues to build momentum as it enters a new era of growth under the umbrella of Unleashed Brands, a youth enrichment platform made up of innovative, profitable, and trusted brands on a mission to help kids learn, play and grow.

The Little Gym partnered with Unleashed Brands in December 2021, joining a synergistic lineup that now includes Urban AirSnapology,  XP League, Class 101, and Premier Martial Arts.   As part of the Unleashed Brands platform, The Little Gym's growth efforts are focused on modernizing the guest experience, both digitally and in the gym, and working to build greater value for customers through a membership program.

Launched in 1976 by former gymnast and kinesiologist Robin Wes, The Little Gym was founded to help children develop vital motor skills in a fun, musical and non-competitive environment. Their unique curriculum is based on a holistic approach to learning, challenging children to master the physical, emotional and life skills they need for tomorrow, today. With nearly 400 locations across 31 countries, The Little Gym continues to embrace this original vision as a springboard for life's adventures and a fun franchise opportunity.

Aside from the proprietary curriculum, every new franchise owner can count on comprehensive training and support to grow their business. Support covers every area of the business, from pre-opening to business growth and ongoing guidance from a dedicated field consultant. The franchise roadmap to success also includes the latest technologies in youth enrichment with custom dashboards for benchmarking and tracking the success of the gym.

Opportunities are still available in prime territories and The Little Gym has its sights set on more growth. The brand’s thriving system is filled with franchisees from all walks of life, ranging from current business owners and teachers to marketing and sales executives. No gymnastics or childcare background is required to be a children’s fitness franchise owner. The Little Gym seeks creative entrepreneurs passionate about kids who possess such qualities as:

  • Existing owners looking to diversify their portfolios in the youth enrichment space
  • Passionate about impacting multiple communities
  • Experience leading teams
  • Works on the business, not in the business
  • Understands our core customers but has a team to interact with them
  • Systems and processes oriented
