Children's Corner: My Gym Children's Fitness with Monique Vranesh

Getting kids to put down the video games, tablets and smart phones can be quite a challenge – Monique Vranesh, a mother and owner of a gym just for kids, can attest to this. Every day, she works to instill a love of fitness in the children who come to her gym.

When Monique graduated from college, she knew she wanted to commit to working with children. At first, she considered working with camps, but an opportunity arose in which she could work at a new gym that was specifically for kids. It was created to provide a safe environment where children could play and learn to socialize. She jumped at the chance and ended up helping to grow that one location into a worldwide franchise, now known as My Gym Children’s Fitness Center.

She currently co-owns the Encino, CA location and is recognized throughout the country by children everywhere from her exercise video for parents, babies and toddlers in which she stars. Monique is no stranger to physical activity - - aside from her work with her gym, Monique (a mother of two young girls) is a former track runner and she takes part in several charity walks, including Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk, the Diabetes Walk and has volunteered with the Special Olympics.
