Gym Wizards Purpose
Gym Wizards is South Africa’s leading kids physical development organization, founded by Springbok gymnast & coach and entrepreneur Tania Williams.
The core principle behind Gym Wizards is that in today’s world our kids are not moving enough; are often obese & depressed and show a range of other neuro-motor complications – for example ADHD.
Gym Wizards, through its FUN bespoke programmes, gets kids moving- and loving it! We give kids the confidence for life by allowing them to learn at their own pace; supporting their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development every step of the way.
What sets us apart from other Kid’s Physical Development Organizations is our child-loving instructors that get our extensive certified professional training and ongoing professional development (CPD); our bespoke progression based curricula which includes a social skill syllabus; and our ready to use business systems that have worked for over 20 years.
“Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth, those who care for and protect our people”. Nelson Mandela.
“Join the Gym Wizards family on a journey filled with laughter, loads of fun and a rich learning environment. As a team filled with diversity we are aware that you are all unique, and will take care in acknowledging the whole person. We pride ourselves in being there for you and serving from the heart “
1. Make Their Day – I will aim to make someone’s day every day- whether it is a customer, parent, teacher or fellow staff member.
I know that taking time to talk and listen to customers before and after class, teaching enthusiastically, boosting children’s self- esteem and preparing for my lessons will help me make my customer’s day!
I know that being mindful of where my customer’s and fellow staff members are at, will help me to remember important events, celebrate successes and know when to be compassionate or say a kind word of support during challenging times. This will make their day.
2. Keep Learning – I will be willing to learn from my mistakes. I will always be striving to learn, grow, and master so that I can help my fellow staff members and customers learn, grow and master as well.
I will look for educational opportunities to improve myself at every turn and will attend workshops for improvement. I will use the Gym Wizards Library of resources and attend and observe my peers’ lessons to learn from them.
I will never forget that I can always learn from the children.
3. Develop a Positive Team and Family Spirit – I am willing to do whatever it takes to stay together and achieve team goals.
I will focus on cooperation and always come to a resolution. I am flexible in my work and willing to change if what I am doing is not working.
I will ask for help when I need it and be compassionate to others who ask me. I will take care to put the well-being of the whole person first and I will show empathy and support during tough times.
I will know my responsibilities and how important it is to stick to them- as we are all interdependent and rely on each other. I know my role within the greater G-Wiz Team.
I will spend time outside of work to get to know and befriend my fellow team mates. I will remember important days and show condolences or celebrations/congratulations. I will help staff and gymnasts feel that this is their second home.
4. Create Fun – I will view life as a journey to be enjoyed and appreciated.
By having a sense of wonder, I will help to create an atmosphere of fun and happiness so that all those around me enjoy it as well. I will treat serious matters appropriately and lightly.
Through a fun culture, I will help students put failures into perspective.
I will look forward to and enjoy being at work and in work
