The City of Florence gymnastics program is packed with high energy and octane. Both competition and skills development are a focus at this facility. Participants will learn not only sound techniques but they will also learn life-skills that will help them develop as teens, young adults and adults.
The center is a 12,000 square foot air-conditioned building with many different types of gymnastics features, such as a 20×20 loose-foam training pit, a 8×30 bar training pit, a 42×42 spring tumbling floor, multiple sets of uneven bars, balance beams, vaulting tables, a 25 foot tumble track, parallel bars, rings, and several additional learning aids. There is a separate preschool room outfitted with small-scale equipment adapted to better accommodate younger children. A large lobby with vending machines, viewing windows, and tables are available for all parents and guests.
