After 10 years at their location on the second floor of the Westchase Town Center, My Gym Tampa recently relocated to a nearby shopping plaza.

The new location offers a larger space, ample parking and more convenience for members. Parents and children now have easy access to the entrance without having to navigate stairs.

"We expanded in size and came down to the ground floor," said owner/director CarolLynn Smith. "It's been wonderful."

My Gym offers fun and engaging age-appropriate classes for ages 6 weeks through age 10. Weekly classes incorporate music, dance, relays, games, gymnastics, sports and more.

"My Gym corporate provides researched developed curriculum that's really thorough," Smith said. "Every activity has a purpose behind it."

A variety of classes include gymnastics, ballet, hip-hop/zumba, and "Little Bundles," which is for babies between 6 weeks and 6 months old. Two new classes recently added are Ninja Training and Pilates & Play. Ninja Training is designed to develop strength, agility, and stamina with obstacle courses that change every week.

The Pilates & Play class will offer mat Pilates for adults while children enjoy time playing in the gym. The class will be led by Smith who is a certified Pilates instructor.

My Gym's new location has a dedicated room for parties, and different birthday party packages are available. Camps, Family Fun Nights, and Parent's Night Out are also offered.

My Gym Tampa is located at 10613 Sheldon Road. A special enrollment night event for non-members will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 26.
