You can't train for the Olympics in your own home, no matter how many four-point landings you land off the couch or how many Russian judges you hold hostage in your basement. Get on the legal path to greatness with today's Groupon: for $29, you get two months of classes (a $130 value) at 5280 Gymnastics. Today's deal is good at both 5280 locations, in Littleton and Wheat Ridge.
Home to Olympic medalists and inexperienced tumblers alike, 5280 Gymnastics mentors prospective ringmasters and high-bar dynamos in a supportive and educational environment. Classes run six days a week and cater to all ages and ability levels, from beginner balance beamers to budding competitive gymnasts. Preschool classes allow tiny tumblers to gain confidence and independence. Malleable moms and dads can sign up for parent-tot classes in preparation for vaulting out of future parent-teacher conferences gone awry. Adults with no prior gymnastics experience and those looking to bounce back after a high-bar hiatus can gain newfound strength, flexibility, and confidence in appropriately tailored courses, led by 5280's careful and capable coaching staff. 5280 Gymnastics has two locations at which contortion connoisseurs can learn the gym's core goals—allowing students to overcome fear and physical challenges while building coordination, mental focus, self-confidence, and total mastery over immobile horses. Check out 5280's website for complete class descriptions and schedules for each location.
Beth and Jim Trammell started 5280 Gymnastics to share their love of gymnastics with students young and old, novice and expert, casual and competitive. They assembled an elite team of coaches that trained Olympic gymnast Sasha Artemev and placed graduates on the gymnastics teams at Stanford University, into officer's education at West Point, and onto the diving team at Northwestern University. Under this refined tutelage, the two USA Gymnastics teams that regularly train within 5280's confines took home awards at regional, state, and national levels of competition.
The owners and coaches recognize that not everyone desires to train for peak levels of gymnastics competition, and so the range of classes encompasses plenty of other options, including casual, confidence-inspiring play for tots and free running and parkour classes for older students. During the summer, daily camps keep kids busy during sunny hours with athletic games and arts-and-crafts projects such as building a balance beam out of popsicle sticks.
