ST. LOUIS PARK (March 30, 2017)—The Little Gym International, a children’s development and enrichment franchise with over 300 locations around the globe, announced Slater Crosby as recipient of the company’s annual Franchise Owner of the Year award. Slater was recognized for his outstanding contributions to both The Little Gym and his community at the franchise’s 2017 Reunion, a yearly meeting that was recently held in San Diego, Calif.

When Slater and his wife, Lise, discovered The Little Gym through family friends, they fell in love with the noncompetitive atmosphere the gym exuded that was opposite from what his daughter experienced while playing soccer as a child. Committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children in the community, Slater and Lise decided to join The Little Gym in 2005 by opening their own location in the St. Louis Park/Edina. Slater has since gone on to become a multi-year recipient of the President Circle award, and eventually helped chart the course for curriculum enhancements. Among other impressive achievements, Slater has also been a Field Consultant for The Little Gym for more than four years, a position in which he gets to mentor other franchise owners and share his expertise.

“I wouldn’t be the recipient of this award if it weren’t for my dedicated team members and the families in our area,” said Slater Crosby, owner of The Little Gym of Edina. “Every day we come into the gym with a goal to create Olympic-quality children, not athletes, and every day we leave feeling that we’ve accomplished that through The Little Gym’s unmatched curriculum.”

“Slater’s enthusiasm for The Little Gym and unwavering commitment to making our franchise the best that it can be are attributes that contributed to his receiving this year’s Franchise Owner of the Year award,” said Ruk Adams, President and CEO of The Little Gym International. “Slater embodies everything that we look for in our franchise owners; he loves what he does and he’s passionate about making a true difference in his community.”
