GiGi’s Playhouse, a one-of-a-kind achievement center for individuals with Down syndrome, their family, and the community, is thrilled to announce the opening of the GiGiFIT Studio. This program is designed for children and adults with Down syndrome to help them improve low muscle tone that starts at birth. GiGiFIT will be offered to all ages in a newly acquired studio located right next to GiGi’s Playhouse in Scottsdale.

“We are so excited to be opening the GiGiFIT Studio,” says Robin Lea-Amos, executive director of GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix/Scottsdale. “We have been aiming to build a fitness studio for some time to offer our community more fitness classes and promote health, socialization and leadership opportunities. We are so grateful for our community partner, StretchLab, and how they will be helping our participants achieve their goals.”

GiGi’s Playhouse, which is 90% volunteer run, serves 800 families and supplies 9,000 hours of free programing for its community a year. With this new space, it is projected that the organization will be able to help twice as many families. GiGi’s Playhouse received the necessary funding for this new facility from the Scottsdale Charros and Arizona Sports & Tourism Authority.

The new GiGiFIT Studio is located at 9160 E. Shea Boulevard, Ste. 201, in Scottsdale. To connect with GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix/Scottsdale, visit or find GiGi’s on Facebook @GigisPlayhousePhoenix.
