Today I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for Java Gym Grand Rapids. My friend Jen is the Marketing Guru over at CD Barnes Associates, Inc, she got me in as they were the ones responsible for the amazing build out of this place.

Java Gym is an awesome concept, their tag line of ‘Adults Stay. Kids Play’ really says it all. Upon entering your eyes are immediately drawn upwards to the top of this amazing four level play structure. You really have to remember you are there for your kids to play, your first instinct is to push every rug rat out-of-the-way and conquer this thing on your own.
