Health & Nutrition

Whether you're a competitive All-Star or a progressive gymnast or tumbler, you need fuel for your body to develop your muscles, build strong bones and maintain your energy needed to effectively perform the skills you are taught in a safe manner.

Healthy foods will help your body develop proper muscle tone, endurance, agility, strength,speed and stamina.  A healthy diet is crucial to your overall performance both on and off the mat.

We strive to promote healthy eating at our gym. If we provide a snack or drink, you can rest assured we have exercised caution in the snack choices we sell to our students.  If you would like to promote healthy eating in your children, you can visit our helpful links below. Healthy eating and good exercise habits can be started at an early age and can become a part of routine that is carried on through adulthood.

    2.) Minimize sugary foods
    3.) Drink more water
