When I was a kid, gym class involved running around in circles while an ex-soldier ‘motivated’ you. It was actually pretty terrifying. Moving on a century and things have definitely changed. Look at the new branch of The Little Gym, a place of bright primary colors and soft custom-made equipment. Accompanied by music, classes are conducted in a nurturing environment that consciously escapes principles of hierarchy.
Set across two floors, parents have the opportunity of seeing the tykes in full-action courtesy of a glassed-off viewing area, while downstairs, the 280 sq/m space unfurls to reveal a Batida café as well as side-rooms that include a play area and a multi-purpose activity room: public speaking classes led by an actress? You’ve got it! A departure from the old way of doing things, TLG demonstrates that modern methods shouldn’t necessarily involve a screen.
