Children and aspiring beginner athletes need a special environment to flourish. For example, Gym Kidz, Inc. was created specifically to give children and budding gymnasts a safe and fun place to learn and practice.

With a passionate owner, dedicated coaches and a loyal customer base, the brand has grown from a mere dream to a multi-site business. Learn more about the company as part of this week’s Small Business Spotlight.


The activities of the company:

Offers gymnastics classes for children of all ages and abilities.

Owner Joslyn Varona told Small Business Trends, “Our goal is to provide a positive and fun experience for all our athletes who enroll in our program.”

Cases Niche:

Provide excellent service in building relationships with customers.

Varona says, “Creating personal relationships with our clients allows us to organize better programs based on the wants and needs of the community. That’s why we do what we do! “

How did the company begin:

As the realization of a personal dream.

Varona recounts: “It was one of my dreams and with the help of my parents, I was able to borrow money to start my first gym. Thanks to a lot of hard work and love of gymnastics, we are always here in the community to provide a service that we badly need. “

Highest Victory:

Give back to some great causes.

Varona explains: “Once our organization was established, we set ourselves new goals and at the top of this list we gave back. In recent years, we have partnered with such great organizations as Special Olympics and Neighbors for Neighbors to create a Kid Kid Gives Back program. It is important to give the example and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to work with such beautiful organizations. “

The biggest risk:

Start without much experience.

Varona says, “I was young and inexperienced as a business owner when we opened. I had to learn the hard way how to run a business and manage it. Learning to do everything in the gym has taught me to be a good manager. Since I’ve held all the positions in the gym, I can better coach coaches. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my community. If I did not have the great team and the families with whom we had the chance to work, we would not be here. “

Lesson learned:

Do not worry less and enjoy the ride.

Varona says, “If I could do it again, I would breathe deeply and not lose my sleep because of the little things.When you do things right, they have a way of coping .I have lost so much of sleep nights to worry about situations that were beyond my control. “

How would they spend $ 100,000 more:

Improve facilities.

Varona explains, “The gym equipment is very expensive, so I would use some of the money to upgrade some of our equipment. I would also use the money to modernize our reception areas and our computer systems. If anything remained, I would use it to market the gym. “
