My Gym has recently re-opened in Middletown (11800 Shelbyville Road Suite 101 Louisville, KY 40243), and my kids were invited to a My Gym birthday party a couple weekends ago. When we arrived, there was fun music playing and the kids were told to take their shoes off and put them in a cubby hole. Then the kids were invited to enjoy the gym until all of the guests had arrived, and the kids had been able to play for a while.
The owner “Mr. Bill” got all the kids together in the center of the room. He played some fun games where the kids had to listen, follow directions, take turns, and complete some type of physical task. He used a variety of equipment in the gym from jumping over ropes to kicking hanging balloons. The kids enjoyed the games for a while, and then given free time again to play. Then they were allowed to take turns on the zip line with Mr. Bill helping them. The younger kids got to sit in a swing, while the older kids got to hold onto the zip line handlebars and hang. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and I’m sure they would have enjoyed doing it for the rest of the party! They got to play some more, and Mr Bill started to give rides on a sled around the carpeted room! It was a big hit!
After some more play time,we broke to eat some cake. The kids all lined up, sitting at the cubby & countertop. Everyone sang happy birthday, ate cake, and went back to & playing. The birthday boy then opened his gifts (although the parents were invited to stay or leave for the present time) with the kids sitting in the center of the gym. After that, the kids were given a few more minutes to play before leaving with their goody bags. The gym had 2 climbing structures, a wooden rung ladder over a ball pit,monkey bars, a trampoline, and other various climbing and rolling The kids had a great time, and I would recommend it to anyone for a birthday party!
