Every Friday I like to highlight a Carmel or Westfield business that might be of interest to parents in the area. This week, it’s The Little Gym at Merchants Square in Carmel. Owner Suzanne Barger tells us how she got started with The Little Gym and why she loves it!
“We got started at The Little Gym in Virginia Beach, when our son was only 6 months old. We had moved to Virginia Beach from Carmel just a couple of months prior, when I decided I needed to get out of the house with my infant! We loved the program there so much that when the time came a couple of years later for my husband Steve to pursue a new career path, we decided to move back to Carmel and open up our own The Little Gym! I have a background in gymnastics, starting from age 4. I was a competitive gymnastics coach for 17 years. Steve has a business background, doing customer care and call center operations in the corporate world. He decided he was ready to work for himself instead of someone else, and so we began on the journey of owning a small business franchise!
My favorite part about our business is growing relationships with the families who come to our gym. We love watching the children blossom and grow, just like Sebastian did under the guidance of the Virginia Beach TLG team. I hope in the future, as our business grows, that we can have a strong positive impact on our entire community, not only for our member families, but by giving back to the city as a whole.”
