How The Little Gym® Came to Be

Gymnast, kinesiologist and musician Robin Wes had a unique idea: to give children the chance to build their motor skills as well as their social, emotional, and intellectual skills - all in a fun, magical, non-competitive environment. He opened The Little Gym in 1976 in Bellevue, Washington, and the idea soared.

In 1992, The Little Gym International, Inc. was incorporated for the purpose of franchising Robin's concept. Today, The Little Gym has grown dramatically. We have over 300 franchises in 38 states and 21 countries. At our headquarters in Scottsdale Arizona, our corporate team devotes their talent and energy to helping franchise owners achieve their dreams. And Robin Wes remains instrumental to the team, doing what he loves most - composing all the music for The Little Gym.
