Play is the natural form of learning for children because through playing they acquire vital skills. Growing up we had no access to technology so our natural form of play involved more outdoor activities than the children of today and, as a result of this technologically dependent upbringing, social, physical and psychological difficulties have become more common. GrowingPros intends to build on this natural form of learning by focusing on integrating play with physical development which will benefit the child both inside and outside the classroom. A child’s overall growth and wellbeing is determined by their emotional, social and physical development and can influence the young adult they will become.
GrowingPros vision is to become a renowned brand that parents and children alike will associate with FUN, ACTIVE, HEALTHY LIVING as well as POSITIVE LIFE-LONG HABITS.
We aim to BUILD CONFIDENCE and DEVELOP SKILLS to help your children reach their true potential as they continue to develop through childhood into adulthood.
We give your child the platform to develop themselves as individuals and to learn essential skills in an environment that cultivates both PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT as well as PSYCHOLOGICAL GROWTH.
Our approach to training will allow the children to develop a VARIETY OF SKILLS that will give them the ability to participate in whatever physical and sporting endeavors they may want to try as they get older.
We seek to bring the very best out of each child. Our aim is to deliver EXCITING and PRODUCTIVE sessions that bring with it a new challenge each week to MOTIVATE and build SELF-CONFIDENCE.

We hold private sessions in a few select gyms across Johannesburg. These sessions normally take place in the afternoons after the school day. Private sessions give your child more individual attention as there are a maximum of five children to one coach. This allows us to cater to your child’s specific, individual needs. Sessions time slots are based on age groups so booking is essential. Please contact us for a gym near you.
We run an extramural programme for schools across Johannesburg. Our sessions are delivered on the school premises and take place each week at a time set forth by the school. Each session is 30 minutes and the children are active for the full 30 minutes to ensure they are getting the most out of each session. We keep a ratio of a maximum of ten children to one coach to maintain the best possible quality per session.
We do parties for children of all ages. We have fun, active games that will keep the children entertained for hours. We can tailor our package to your child’s individual needs. Please contact us for details.
"My daughter absolutely loves the GrowingPros coaches. They are so friendly and well trained so they know exactly how to deal with the kids. My little girl has learnt so many new things and has an absolute ball during the GrowingPros’ lessons.”
“GrowingPros is great value for money. My child comes home after every session happy. What I like most about GrowingPros is how they make it fun for the kids and incorporate different sporting activities into one session – they get to learn so many more skills that way.”
“GrowingPros has done wonders for my son. He has struggled with concentration in class and after doing GrowingPros he has thrived in the classroom. It definitely helps and I would recommend it to any parent!”
