My Gym was born out of our passion to teach children in a fun, physically engaging environment. We delighted in seeing children's eyes light up for all those incredible milestones, from the tentative first steps to the all-important zoom across our "Space Flight." Sharing the parents’ excitement at their children’s accomplishments was the high point of our day. To learn more about My Gym Scranton, please click here.
