In ancient Greece, gymnastics was considered an essential part of a well-rounded education, as it helped to prepare children to eventually take part in the state's ongoing battle against the Cyclopes. Send kids on an athletic odyssey with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one month of weekly kids' gymnastics classes at Maximum Athletic Center, with two locations in Conroe and The Woodlands (up to a $72 value). The registration fee will be waived for Groupon customers, although those continuing at the school will need to pay a registration fee.
Maximum Athletic Center's dedicated and experienced gymnastics instructors lead burgeoning tumblers ages 18 months through 18 years through routines that build strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance in a safe and supportive environment. Fledgling athletes of all levels cultivate skills and tumbleweed-stunt-double experience during one-hour classes once a week. Preschoolers engage in a meet-and-greet with the trampoline, the balance beam, the bars, and the matted floor, developing motor skills and self-confidence, and all ages discover buoyancy in trampoline classes as they bound across safe, in-ground trampolines. Girls and boys ages 5 and older can learn non-competitive gymnastics skills during developmental gymnastics classes, and those six and older can handspring into tumbling classes to learn how to safely flip across the mats and inconspicuously roll out of uncomfortable conversations. Check each location's website for class schedules.
