Why this petition matters

Mississauga is a highly populated city where many young families live.  Although it would seem like a downtown area should have many options for gyms and workout facilities for young families there is a very low number of gyms that have child minding. LA Fitness is one of the only gyms in the area that provides child care for its community.  Closing Kids Klub will come at a great cost and detriment to the community affecting the health and wellbeing of many parents and children who participate in the program, especially in these times.  After years of lockdowns and social isolation for not only adults but children as well,  LA Fitness has added value to our community by giving us the opportunity to get our lives back!

As a new mom it is very difficult to find the time to go to the gym and work on my health well being.  It is the only time I get to myself as I am unable to sign my child up for daycare.  Many parents do not have relatives or friends close by who can just take a child for a hour while a parent works out.  This gym has given so many parents the opportunity to be able to take that selfcare time and still know that their children are in a safe space,  ESPECIALLY with the AMZING STAFF that are so supportive.

Since the pandemic many children have not had a chance to socialize (pandemic babies) and I personally have noticed a huge positive change for my son since he has been in the Kids Klub program. He is usually there for no more than a hour and in just that hour a day I can see he has gained more confidence and independence.  Not only is this service helping children to become social it is also helping new moms like myself find a new mom community.  I have also seen instructors dropping off children to go teach classes.  This gym has phenomenal staff and it would be a shame to see them go because they are not able to bring their children to work, or because of a job loss or relocation.

The LA Fitness Mission Statement states: "To help as many people as possible to achieve the benefit of a healthy lifestyle by creating nation wide sport clubs offering its members the widest range of amenities and the friendliest services at an affordable price."

If it wasn't for this Kids Klub I would not be able to workout, other gyms are just too far for me and I know the situation is similar for a lot of parents. Please keep Kids Klub open!!!
