Gymnastics

Classes & Registration Portal

We strive to offer the highest quality gymnastics program possible. We are dedicated to helping all students reach their potential, both physically and mentally, through the sport of gymnastics for toddlers, children, teens, and families for promotion of lifelong wellness. Our goal is to provide a unique atmosphere to enhance that cultivates listening skills, confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline and responsibility.

For the school age student, the Guild offers developmental gymnastics classes based on skill progression and achievement. Students learn in a disciplined and enthusiastic atmosphere with an emphasis on safety. In addition to degreed and certified instructors, the Guild's studio is equipped with a state-of-the-art foam tumbling floor, balance beams, vault trainer table, a regulation bar, and skill building shapes and mats to aid in progressive development.

Involving your child in gymnastics at an early age can be an extremely rewarding experience. Along with an hour of fun and frolic, children are able to experience how their body moves, socialize with other children and enjoy the thrill of learning a new skill while building muscular strength, coordination and cardiovascular endurance. For those whose future includes dance at the Guild, the tumbling program grounds children in their sense of motion and grace.

Not only can the program be tremendously enjoyable for kids, but parents love to watch as the little ones gain confidence and a sense of identity in the process. We are proud that our program is structured to instill in children a love of exercise and healthy eating. Get fit, eat well and live long.

The Guild is very proud of its well-qualified faculty; our instructors are more than just teachers of physical skill and sport.... they are also friends, mentors, coaches, motivators, and always a steady fan-club for the young athletes who participate in our programs.

Parkour

with Ethan Young, A.D.A.P.T. Certified Instructor

Parkour is an explosive art of movement, a discipline that enables the practitioner to travel freely through and over any terrain they may encounter, and the world's fastest growing 'free sport'. Parkour focuses on developing the fundamental attributes required for movement, including balance, strength, dynamism, endurance, precision, spatial awareness and creative vision. Beyond this simple explanation, however, parkour is a discipline of self-improvement on all levels, an art that reveals to the practitioner his or her own physical and mental limits and simultaneously offers a method to surpass them.
