Open Gyms at USA Youth Fitness are cool indoor fun all summer! Kids will get exercise and have a blast at the same time! Important note: all registration is done online, no walk-in spots are available. Register here.

Two locations: Gilbert and Queen Creek.

After a quick group stretch lead by coaches, the kids are given free reign over ALL the gym equipment! After taking turns bouncing on the trampolines, climbing the rope, swinging into the foam pit, walking on the balance beams and cartwheeling around, your kids will burn away tons of energy!
