Like so many small businesses affected by the current COVID-19 crisis, My Gym River Forest has been challenged in countless ways. During this time of social-distancing and stay-at-home orders issued by the federal and state governments, finding creative ways to stay “open,” keep staff employed, pay the bills and, most importantly, keep kids active has proven to be no small task.

However, My Gym has found a way to continue serving the families they value so much, and it’s called My Gym Live! Yes, we are temporarily closed, but guess what? We are not ready to stop our classes. These are not prerecorded videos; this is live interactive instruction from your favorite My Gym teachers.

Just as so many restaurants and other small businesses have adapted their products and services to remain viable during this pandemic, My Gym has done the same. The company has been pro-active in preparing for the future of their business and creating new avenues to maintain the health and well-being of children throughout the community. This is tough, but, like everyone else here in Oak Park/River Forest, we have no choice. We are going to do everything we can to keep our business alive, short and long-term, and to stay connected to our kids. If we can provide even a small bit of exercise, entertainment, and fun to keep the kids engaged and happy, we are going to do that.

My Gym Live, streamed to smart TVs, laptops, and phones via Zoom, features online classes for kids ages 6 weeks to 10 years as well as exclusive video-on-demand (VOD) content for enrolled students, and awesome Virtual Birthday Parties.
