Life of a Monkeynastix Owner

Franchisees like the flexibility of setting their own hours and working from home.  The program is mobile, and can be set up almost anywhere.  They also appreciate that the program has low initial set-up and overhead costs.

Owners tend to work on both sides of the business – selling the program to schools and day cares, and teaching the Monkeynastix classes.  They appreciate the opportunity to teach and play with children, building them up with a program that is ahead of its time.

The Program and Lessons

Monkeynastix lessons begin with a fun warm-up song, followed by stretching positions and locomotion, children then participate in the main activity of the day (ie. balance beam, trampoline, cardio, floor work etc), which changes weekly.  The class ends with sport development where children work on their kicking, catching and throwing skills.

Children are awarded with a Monkeynastix sticker at the end of each class.  Children and instructors leave the lesson feeling happy, confident and energized!
