We Develop The Ingredients To Develop The Child


Just Add Kids is the perfect solution for free standing business owners, fitness club, preschools, gymnastics schools, or anyone interested in helping children stay healthy, active, and stimulated. We have literally helped hundreds and thousands of kids in their development. Now we want to share our years of experience with you and your community through this unique business opportunity called JUST ADD KIDS!

Just Add Kids is the brainchild of founder and owner, Siegfried Gerstung, and incorporates the philosophy; equipment and teaching methods used everyday in his own facility in Baltimore, Maryland.

Siegfried Gerstung, first came to America as a young physical education teacher. He saw a lack of quality programs that focused on fostering creativity, problem solving skills, and boosting self-esteem. He decided to create a non-competitive teaching method with the focus on the cognitive and physical skills as well as encouraging the child to use their own innate curiosity to stimulate movement.

When he saw that his programs were a success, he wanted to share what he had learned with as many people as possible. That’s when the Just Add Kids business opportunity was developed.

Gerstung Inter-Sport has been in business since 1964 and it has serviced the youth fitness market as creator of youth movement education curriculums, manufacturer of youth equipment and flooring, as well as providing instructor education programs. More importantly, we have owned and operated the Gerstung gym for over 40 years and have received numerous local “Best” awards as well as Club Industry’s Best of the Best in Children’s Programming.
