My Gym was born out of our passion to teach children in a fun, physically engaging environment. We delighted in seeing children's eyes light up for all those incredible milestones, from the tentative first steps to tumbling down soft mats. Sharing the parents’ excitement at their children’s accomplishments was the high point of our day.
We knew from the start that, through fun and captivating activities, we could accomplish great things. Our goal: To create an environment where children feel loved and supported so their self-esteem and confidence can flourish. Now, more than 35 years later, we’re proud to say that all children of all abilities can succeed and thrive at My Gym.
With 700+ locations worldwide, our dream of active, giggling children growing into happy and confident adults has been realized. We cherish every one of our members and are grateful to have each as part of our My Gym family.
Meet the Owners, Joe and Kristen Lanman
Joe and Kristen moved to Charlotte in 2006. We have been entrepreneurs since the very beginning, getting our start in college selling books door-to-door with the Southwestern Publishing Company in Nashville, TN. In Charlotte, Joe began work on his master's degree and Kristen jumped headfirst into the My Gym world working with Joe's sister and brother-in-law (Beth and Ryan Hahn) to build programs and establish the "Kid's Fitness" partnership as a strong, supportive, and thriving family of businesses. Joe and Kristen have expanded the Kid's Fitness family to include the Kid's Art family: Noah's Art. This partnership of businesses is creating and expanding their dream of "Building encouraging, dynamic places for families to adventure." With 5 kids of our own, we know how important it is to come alongside families with little ones to provide excellent services and programs. Our hope is that My Gym and Noah's Art will be one of those places for you and your family.
