Unless you’re familiar with My Gym’s location, you might miss it. Located on the lower level of St. Michael Church at 252 9th St, you will find the largest children’s facility in Jersey City. That’s right, the largest! I met with My Gym’s director, Sabrina and she gave me the grand tour.
My Gym Jersey City provides classes and activities for children starting as young as 6-weeks-old to 13-years-old. Each class is specifically tailored to each age group and are grouped based on parent participation and independent classes.

If you have a little one who is 3.25 to 13 years-old, they have the opportunity to earn their belts with martial arts! About every four months, once the instructor begins to see that the kids are ready, they hold a belt ceremony where kids have the opportunity to move onto the next level belt. The ceremony includes board breaking, punching and kicking skills.
On Thursday’s at 3:30 PM and 4:30 PM children ages three to eight can plié and grand jete with ballet instructor Ms. Rose.
“We try to keep it fresh for the kids,” says Sabrina as she points out the different gymnastic bars and beams, trampoline, swings, ball pit and mini zip-line.
Before each class, the kids and instructors begin with warm up activities in the center of the gym to make sure your little ones are stretched and ready to take on the fun!
