Q&A with Kelly Donyes, Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Our motto is, "Fitness is fun the GYMagine way." Learning how to move your body forward, backward, sideways, and upside down gives our students exciting ways to be fit through gymnastics.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Music and exercise are a major part of everyone's fitness today. Once our gymnasts learn new skills, they need to keep repeating them so that they can master them. Repetition can seem boring at times, but [listening to] music can turn it into a fun process.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
When I learned my first gymnastics skill by myself, I wanted to do it again and again.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Gymnastics is truly the best crossover sport for all sports. The balance, coordination, strength, and agility you learn can excel your performances in other sports and activities.
Composite CrossFit's instructors offer a huge number of classes throughout the week. This means the workouts are accessible to everyone, no matter how busy their schedule. The other thing that makes CrossFit accessible is the nature of the workouts themselves—each exercise can be scaled to fit any fitness level. Throughout the class, instructors are on hand to provide feedback on proper form and modifications.
Rory and Sara Kerrigan both have backgrounds in competitive gymnastics—Sara even represented Canada at the 1991 World Championships. Today, the two have a 3-year-old son and are focused on helping kids like him develop mentally and physically through the sport. Within Kerrigan Gymnastics Academy's 10,000-square-foot facility, their staff aims to foster a lasting love for physical activity through age-appropriate classes. For the youngest students, classes focus on developing confidence and coordination while older kids learn to tumble, vault, and fly across the uneven bars. Parents are always welcome to observe in the spectator area, complete with a TV and WiFi access that lets them connect to work or hack the International Space Station while their kids are in class. :m]]
For more than 20 years, Dynamic Dance's team of highly trained instructors—some of whom have international dance training—have created an engaging and supportive environment for children to learn and thrive during a variety of dance classes. Children three and under can discover movement and music as they play with drums and ribbons during a week dance session, while older students learn classical ballet in either the Royal Academy of Dance style or the Cecchetti style.
When David and Sheila Bath founded Leading Edge Gymnastics in 1990, they did so with a simple goal: to help kids build character through the sport they themselves were so passionate about. As their student base expanded and their programs flourished, that character-building mission remained. And along with self-discipline and positive thinking, the gym's students take home physical strength, agility, and really cool party tricks. The program now offers three levels for gymnasts, a competitive team for serious athletes, preschool programs such as Mommy and Me, and even birthday parties. Thus far, LEGA has five athletes attending college on full-ride college scholarships.
