Olympic gold medalist and International Gymnastics Hall-of-Famer Vladimir Artemov oversees the team of fleet-footed twisters and tumblers at Artemov Gymnastics, looking to pass the torch of health, jollity, and rubberized existence to all aspirant Olympians. Once a week for a month, benders of all skill levels can sharpen their shape-ability inside Artemov's air-conditioned, 16,000+-square-foot facility, which is filled with world-class equipment that is cushioned by body-catching trampolines and in-ground landing pits. Friendly, supportive instructors aid in collective skill progression in a variety of one-hour classes.
For United Gymnastics Academy's coaches, gymnastics isn't just about mastering a back handspring or having the flexibility to sink into the splits. In classes, they nurture kids to become more disciplined and confident as they strengthen their bodies and gain coordination. Parents accompany their little ones to toddler classes, which are held in a sectioned-off area with miniature, cushy equipment. Older kids advance through classes that develop tumbling and gymnastics prowess at age-appropriate levels, laying the foundations for a lifetime of physical activity.
The staff members also host birthday parties and summer camps that engage tykes with crafts and open-gym time, in which they will gain enough dexterity and flexibility to build s'mores with their feet.
We have two locations serving South Austin and Hays County. We have been in business since 2003. Our staff are safety certified and background checked. Our Buda Gym is a 10,000 square foot Junior Olympic Training Facility and home to our competitive team.
Love to Swim guides a variety of classes that suit swimmers of any age. Groupon customers can select a four week-long, once-a-week session in any of the following categories: baby and me, preschool, school age, pre-competitive, and adult. Classes are student-centered and structured around playful opportunities, with the philosophy of developing confident, masterful swimmers for life. To up the subaquatic ante, all of the center's coaches undergo 20 hours of in-water training and 12 hours of classroom training, learning subjects from curriculum and classroom management to basics of childhood development.
The experienced coaches at American Allstar Gymnastics Inc teach children of all ages how to climb and cartwheel during recreational gymnastics, cheer, and tumbling classes. Youngsters teeter atop balance beams, swing from parallel bars, or ride into the sunset on pommel horses during gymnastics sessions, which build both flexibility and strength. A one-hour tumbling course introduces choreographed rolls and floorwork to pupils of every skill level. Alternatively, cheer-tumble classes throw a bucketful of pep into acrobatic routines for beginner to intermediate students. Sessions limit attendance to seven whippersnappers per coach, ensuring staff members have enough time to dispense personalized tips to each child before demonstrating how to earn a perfect 10 at competitions by bicycle-kicking baked goods into the judge's mouth.
When lifelong gymnast Natalie McKee first started teaching children gymnastics as a college student, it was more of a side job than a career. Her only goal was to pay her tuition, the same as everyone who hasn't inherited the ability to predict winning lottery numbers. But that changed when Natalie realized that most gymnastic curriculums for kids suffered a fatal flaw. They all landed in one of two camps: either too structured, or not structured enough. Students were forced to choose one, leaving them either bored without challenges or frustrated by tasks they couldn't achieve. To solve this problem, Natalie opened Jump! Gymnastics, which strives to challenge each gymnast within his or her ability level in fun, engaging gymnastics programs for kids.
Each class, designed for children from 18 months to 12 years of age, builds upon the previous class's teachings, ensuring that gymnasts stay stimulated with new moves without feeling overwhelmed by the challenge. With the success of her gymnastics classes, Natalie also decided to foray into other children's activities, including after-school care that keeps kids active, preschool, camps, and birthday parties.
