Our non-competitive recreational gymnastics program is focused on learning skills and having fun exercising.
Our main goal is for students to have fun as they become stronger, healthier, and more confident in their abilities. Our program also engages children in a wide variety of activities designed to promote both physical and emotional growth.
Each class begins with a fifteen-minute warm-up with the instructor. Classes then follow a bi-weekly rotation schedule, rotating events every fifteen minutes. This method ensures students time on each event including trampoline, bars, and rock-wall climbing.
The E-Tots program is for children from walking age to 3 years old. Parents actively participate with their child in this class.

Development of gross motor skills, muscle tone, balance, coordination, and self-confidence are the goals of this program. Children will celebrate being physically fit while being in a safe, fun, highly energetic, and fitness-oriented atmosphere.
