Peak Gymnastics Academy
Parents often go to great lengths to help keep their children's passions alive, but most probably haven't opened a gym to do so. When gymnastics buffs Angie and Wayne Meshaw found out that the gymnastics training center their two little daughters attended closed, they opened up their own shop: Peak Gymnastics Academy. They even shipped over the girls' familiar coaches and teammates. Today, these instructors continue to immerse their students in a supportive environment. This time, though, they have a 10,000 square-foot facility packed with shining new bars, beams, and a competition-style bed trampoline at their disposal.
Intensive day-camps and classes teach basic through advanced skills in tumbling and gymnastics, improving flexibility and coordination at the same time as discipline and confidence. Meanwhile, private and small-group training sessions hone specific skills, such as how to somersault through a stuffed-animal tea party without breaking any saucers.
