This is such a WONDERFUL gym! There are many classes, and such a great group of coaches. My son and I have been going to this gym for about 5 years and it has been one of the best things I could have done for my son. They have a really huge training area, so it was really easy to go as a mom, and take my son with me. He would have kids class while I did my class on the other side of the gym, so I could see him the whole time and felt safe. Now he’s big enough to do adult class with me and how cool is that? Each class is different so I would recommend trying a few classes before making judgment, find what is right for you. I also like that their is a great weightlifting area in The Jungle Gym so you have everything you need in this one huge building. It’s clean, and there are a great group of people from all walks of life, of all ages that attend. There’s something for everyone.
