The most secretive body parts are muscles, which hide behind layers of skin and appear only occasionally to help lift cars off trapped kittens.

The tumbling tutors at Starr Gymnastics & Fitness guide kids and adults in movements designed to challenge, entertain, and inspire. At the facility's boot camps, women ages 15 and up bound into atypical physical regimens as fun as they are challenging, such as trampoline bouncing, an obstacle course, a trapeze, and a 14-foot foam pit housing a playful sponge Nessie. Encouraging instructors tailor each activity to participants’ skills, employing exercisers’ own weight as resistance rather than using standard workout machines. Boot camps accommodate beginner through advanced levels and are available in both early-morning and late-evening sessions.
During a Tiny Twinklers session, toddlers and their caregivers convene for a half hour of play centred around sensory experiences and adult-child bonding far more powerful than what any glue stick could accomplish. At a variety of stations, small bounders interact with music, colourful and textured objects, and other soft navigable obstacles while supervised by experienced gymnastic instructors. Check the schedule for both Tiny Twinklers and boot camp offerings.
Dozens of veteran gymnasts serve as instructors in Starr Gymnastics’ three Ottawa-area facilities, where they favour instruction that emphasizes the most beneficial aspects of gymnastics: enjoyment, physical fitness, and socialization. Since only a small percentage of gymnastics athletes ever cartwheel their way to the competitive level, Starr Gymnastics' instructors teach proper balance-beam technique and safe tumbling skills without skimping on the fun, reminding their gleeful charges of gymnastics' inherent power to imbue agility and a foundational skill set easily applicable to turbo-kicking bad guys in dark alleys.
Starr's high-spirited staff occasionally spices up the play by inviting pint-sized gymnasts to don costumes or by darkening the arena while pupils leap, flip, and bear glowing cuspids amid a sea of black lights. The gym's festive approach to youth fitness occupies vacationing students during school breaks with summer camps, and birthday celebrants frequently gather in colourful private rooms for party packages that include equipment access and a T-shirt for the guest of honour.
