A Lansdowne couple has signed on as franchisees with the We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym chain and hope to open their first location this summer in Ashburn.
We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym “provides sensory-safe play for kids with autism, special needs and neurotypical development.” according to the brand’s website. Special sensory equipment include a trampoline, a tunnel, a carpet swing, a zip line and more. The goal is to grow, improve skills, master their own body weight and movements all while having fun.
We Rock the Spectrum has an interesting motto that is sure to resonate with many parents of children who are on the spectrum — “Finally a place where you never have to say I’m sorry.”
Anjali and Manish Gulati are excited to be bring the concept to Northern Virginia. As the parents of a son on the spectrum, they know how much a gym like We Rock the Spectrum will mean to local parents. “This is what we needed and there was nothing like it,” said Anjali. “So it became my passion to find something like this and open it here.”
Gulati says she and her husband have looked at a variety of locations and say they are almost certain they will choose a location in Ashburn due to it being centrally located.
We Rock the Spectrum is a California-based chain with more than 30 locations around the country and another two dozen preparing to open.
