Looking for toddler or kid open gymnastics play? Local mom, Kristina, visited Acrosmith Gymnastics for family gym time where her kids got to play on all the equipment for an hour.
A great activity for little kids any time of year, but especially when it’s brutally hot, unbearably cold, or rainy, is Family Fun Gym Time at Acrosmith Gymnastics (formerly Tot Time) located just off West Georgia Road near I-385 in Simpsonville. It’s just $6 for one full hour’s worth of kid-friendly free time at the gym.
Family Fun Gym is offered Monday-Thursday at 9:00 am and 10:15 am and Fridays at 10:15 am. The 9 am time slot is for kids walking through six years old and the 10:15 am time slot is for kids up to age 12.
Acrosmith has instituted a pre-registration system for their family gym time so you must sign up beforehand online. They have made it super simple and easy. Go to the Acrosmith Family Fun Gym page on their website and click “register here”. You’ll be asked to sign up your child and you pay online.
When you get to the gym, you’ll be signed in by a staff member, which takes seconds. It’s so easy! I’ve been visiting Acrosmith Gymnastics for their tot times for years and this is by far the fastest method they have instituted.
What happens at Family Fun Gym
Once you arrive at Acrosmith for family fun gym, kids take off their shoes and get to do pretty much whatever they want at the gym.
My one daughter loves the bars and the trampolines. My other daughter really enjoys the beam and foam pit. There is something for every interest and kids will undoubtedly find something they enjoy.
Acrosmith has an area designed just for the smaller kids with a rope swing, small bars, and beams, but the kids can go whatever they like.
Parents need to be within arms reach of their kids though for their own safety. Acrosmith limits the numbers of kids but you can imagine that kids will want to fly off a beam or bar because they think they are invincible – and they aren’t. So parents need to carefully watch their children.
They can run around on the bouncy floor, try walking across the higher beams, jump on the tumble track trampoline, or bounce into the foam pits. There are no classes or structured play – just a perfect time to let your tot run around and get out energy somewhere other than your own house.
Acrosmith used to be located in Simpsonville but they’ve since moved to a larger gym off of Woodruff Road on an access road that you can get to from Roper Mountain Road to Feaster Road to the access road. It’s right behind Aldi.
The benefits of Family Gym Time at Acrosmith are plentiful, to say the least
- Beat the heat, cold, and rain. Acrosmith is a full size, competitive team training gym. You will see bars, vaults, beams, trampolines, and more the moment you enter the fully air conditioned/heated building.
- Gross Motor Skills: Your child will be running, jumping, climbing, rolling, skipping, hopping, and doing much more for the full hour that they are engaged during Family Gym Time.
- Inexpensive Fun: There is no commitment for Family Gym Time at Acrosmith. Come whenever you want.
The atmosphere is laid back and there are other parents just hanging out following their kids around. It’s a great way to get out energy for the kids!
