Eagles Gym Centre is KC's premier facility for Gymnastics, Cheerleading, Tumbling, Camps and Birthday Parties! Since 1986 we've been having FUN teaching kids from 12 months to 18 years and hosting camps, open gym time and special events like Kid's Night Out and My Doll and Me Gymnastic parties!
Instructors help kids of all ages develop their mental and physical skills with progressive gymnastic curricula at Pinnacle Gymnastics. There, vaults, bars, beams, and other equipment await students, along with experienced instructors. Classes, camps, and parties encourage young feet to bound across mats and spring off trampolines at a pair of gym locations. Kids can start taking classes at the age of nine months with parents by their side, and can continue through the program to join competitive teams or portray tumbleweeds in school productions of Oklahoma.
At Flip Zone, kids learn to do more than flips—they learn body awareness, self-confidence, and social skills through a range of fun and energetic activities. In the play center’s rainbow-colored gym, youngsters master somersaults and cartwheels, stride down the balance beam, and tackle other cheerleading and gymnastics fundamentals. The obstacle course layout ensures that kids stay active throughout their classes, whether they're doing reps of a simple exercise or trying a more challenging move, like a handstand in buttered gloves. Youngsters can try out new skills on their own in the center’s open gym sessions and birthday parties, which allow for less structured experimentation with gymnastics.
Having taught gymnastics for two decades, served as a judge to help decide the 2012 Men?s Olympic team, and contributed to establishing gymnastics programs in many schools and gyms, Eric Smith knows gymnastics. At his own facility 360 Gymnastics, he helps gymnasts of all skill levels and ages become flipping and tumbling champions. He keeps his classes small?capped at eight pupils each?and trains students for both recreational and competitive pursuits. Kids can begin their gymnastics journeys at just over 1 year old, if accompanied with a parent or a highly attentive and loyal collie, and continue to hone their skills until age 18. Adult students can take tumbling, and more fitness-focused classes including Zumba and yoga.
Though Tiffany Nelson and Brian Wilkerson have always been passionate about athletics, they come from two fairly different backgrounds. Tiffany was a top softball and track athlete in college before taking up a career as a physiotherapist, while Brian served in the Marine Corps and became a Kansas City police officer. Despite their differences in history and profession, the duo united in their passion for the CrossFit program.
They pack their no-frills facility with training equipment and free weights, welcoming fitness-seekers of all ages and fitness levels. More than just a place to work out, the duo strives to foster a sense of community at their gym—providing constant motivation, updating their website with fitness and nutrition articles, and conducting a special workout on each clients birthday before breaking open a piñata with their bare hands.
No less than 5,000 square feet of climbable surface stares down at visitors to Monster Mountain. The name is certainly fitting, as the indoor rock wall is billed as the largest in all of Kansas City?a place not otherwise known for its mountains. Situated inside the larger fitness and entertainment complex of Emerald City, the massive expanse poses a fun challenge to both beginners and advanced climbers, as well as their pet goats.
But Emerald City isn't just about climbing and belaying. In fact, the center features numerous ways for people of all ages to get active and have a blast. A play area for kids ages 4?12, for example, contains in-ground trampolines, foam pits, and even its own miniature rock wall. Parents can also enroll kids in gymnastics classes that range from casual to competition-level.
