Chris did a great job of engaging a group of children from 4-7 years old. Everyone raved about his music and antics. I highly recommend him to all looking for a fun, interactive program.

We loved having Mr. Gym at our Library! His program was fun, creative and interactive - he really got the kids moving! It was also educational. He taught the kids the importance of exercise but he did this in ways that were fun for them (incorporating music, games, and activities. I would definitely have Mr. Gym back at our library again and highly recommend him to other libraries and organizations.

“Mr. Gym was awesome! He has a really cool guitar. He taught us how to bounce like rock stars and how to slide like them. We even had a chance to try his djembe drum. Mr. Gym was so cool…it was like having our very own like “Guitar Hero”. We can’t wait for Mr. Gym to come back.”

“The Movin’ 2 Music with Mr. Gym program was great. My group of 12 toddler’s ages 16 months to 2yrs 9 months loved every minute of it. The 30 minute program was the perfect time length and held all their attentions. They also loved playing all the special instruments that Mr. Gym brought. Thank you so much!”
