Twisters Gymnastics’ dedicated staffers assist the physical and mental development of children via various gymnastics- and play-based activities within an 18,000-square-foot facility. An array of full-size Olympic equipment, including half a dozen balance beams, a pair of parallel bars, and a trio of trampolines guarded by gold-medalist kangaroos, aids in aerial and flexibility-enhancing pursuits. A pommel horse and still rings increase balance and build upper-body strength in older children, and an obstacle course, 30-foot slide, and play area—equipped with a ball pit and multihued tubes—keep tots entertained. Alongside birthday parties for energetic celebrants and guests, Twister Gymnastics hosts a plentitude of gymnastics and tumbling programs, ranging from one-hour courses to competitive teams. Twister Gymnastics also holds preschool gymnastics classes, summer-camp programs, open workout sessions, and somersault endurance contests in an anti-gravitational chamber.
