We were new to gym ownership back in1993, but out firm desire to create a fun, safe place for kids to pursue their dreams helped us to grow & develop into a multi-sport center many years later.
The first gymnasts, their parents and our coaches helped create our first gym in an old building that had been vacant for over a decade. They painted, cleaned and removed grafitti from the inside and outside of the building, which had dirt and grime built up from a decade without use. Then we tackled the in-ground pit (20 ft x 30 ft x 6 ft) because that was the newest and greatest invention to prevent injuries. Digging equipment would not fit inside the building, so the entire pit was dug by hand, shovel by shovel and bucket by bucket.
It was a sight reminiscent of Disney’s Fantasia as we watched the digging and the gymnast’s bucket brigade remove the dirt up the stairs and into the waiting trucks. The sore bodies those weeks were not from gymnastics but from construction! And all of this was done after school and on the weekends by kids and families that loved gymnastics and wanted to create their own special program, the program we call Gym Magic.
Gym Magic grew from its original 8 students to 30 students by the time our building was ready to open, and we were finally ready to try our hand at small business. Within 3 months, we had over 200 students in gymnastics without any office staff (that didn’t last long!) and only one phone line.
Much has changed over the years. We are now in our own building; our office staff has grown and incorporated computers for class management, but most importantly, our original desire to build the very best program for kids is still the foundation of all our programs! We believe kids learn best when it’s in a playful, engaging environment and that through our sports, we can teach that learning can be fun and exciting. Once kids internalize that learning is fun, their futures can explode with possibilities!
