Around the 10,000-square-foot TX Training Center facility, instructors lead a host of tumbling and cheerleading classes for beginners and advanced students that take advantage of trampolines and a competition-size spring floor. Alternatively, fitness courses include energetic Zumba dance classes, the cardio-kickboxing workouts of TurboKick, and spinning sessions led by a certified instructor.
The trainers at Gymnastiks Unlimited make use of every inch of their 20,000 square foot facility as they encourage students of all ages to balance, leap, and flip. Aside from honing physical skills and building up confidence reserves, they extend their educational efforts to encompass a wholly healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and proper diet, such as eating frogs’ legs to help boost vaulting skills. Students age 18-months and older can readily enroll in recreational classes, and the facility’s Talent Opportunity Program provides more rigorous training for those who show an aptitude and desire to compete on a national level.
Adhering to the USA Gymnastics slogan, "Start here, go anywhere," the instructors at R-Athletics prepare youths for physically fit futures, whether they continue on to be competitive gymnasts or competitive gymnasts' favorite hairdressers. Lofty windows fill the expansive facility with sunlight, spotlighting the professional gymnastics equipment that speckles the floors of colorful mats. Amid the tumble pits and trampolines, a staff of qualified professionals leads youngsters 18 months old to 18 years old in gymnastics and cheerleading visits throughout the week. As their children master vaults, bars, and beams, parents can watch proudly from the facility's ground-level and elevated viewing centers.

To help visitors grab an edge on their competition, personal trainers stage workouts in the fitness center, which includes strength and cardio equipment, group classes, and locker rooms equipped with a sauna?one of the best ways to relax post workout, and the second best way to cook a turkey.

Patti Komara, commandant of Patti’s All-American for 42 years, leads a team of friendly, highly skilled trainers in conducting gymnastics and dance classes for teens and younger tots. The Tumblebear Gym program (walking toddler–age 6) draws in dinosaurs, Hollywood, and outer-space themes to keep youngsters engaged in the graceful, athletic movements of tumbling. Gymnasts old enough for school-age gymnastics classes (age 6–18) learn and practice more complicated skills on the spring floor, the uneven bars, the in-ground trampoline, and more.
