About Us - My First Gym

we’re all about helping kiwi kids
grow up fit and healthy!

With a mission to Inspire Movement, we’re focused on mobilizing our little members by offering programs that develop the skills kids need, while also encouraging kids to move their bodies in and out of our clubs. At the core of everything we do lies the principle of Physical Literacy, the integration of physical, mental and social capabilities to live active, healthy and fulfilling lives. We’re giving kids the confidence, ability and motivation to move and be physically active.

Being a parent is tough. We know we want our kids to grow up healthy and happy, but sometimes it can be hard knowing what we should be doing to achieve that, or finding the time to come up with fun ways to keep the kids motivated to be physically active. That’s why we’re here!

We’re empowering parents to raise happy, healthy and confident children. Our classes are designed to develop kids Physical Literacy, not only during our classes, but in a way that carriers them through their entire lives.

We make sure our clubs are welcoming and friendly so your little ones will feel at home and comfortable every time. If it’s your first time, don’t worry! Our friendly coaches and staff will greet you at the door, show you where to put your belongings and introduce you to the coach for your very first class.

Kids, be prepared to push yourself, learn new things and most importantly, have lots of fun! Make sure you have had some healthy food before class, and bring a water bottle with you so you’re all fuelled ready to go!


Our classes fill up pretty quickly so please let us know when you and your little ones are coming down to check us out. We encourage every child to bring a water bottle but please note there is no food to be consumed in the gym. There are cubby holes for kids to place their shoes and sock in once they arrive.

If it’s your child’s first class, we recommend you stay and support them if possible. Please come 15 minutes before class so you can meet the coaches and have a look around before your class starts!
