The Elite Gymnastics Story

More than 40 years of active, fun-filled classes in Gymnastics, Mommy & Me, Cheerleading, Swimming, Rock Climbing, Combo Classes and our NEW NinjaZone® program.

Elite Gymnastics is dedicated to providing children of all ages and skill levels, the opportunity to gain new confidence through improved motor skills, socialization, creative expression, and hands-on experiences.

Our History

Founded in 1975, Elite offers a complete range of professionally supervised gymnastic classes for beginning to advanced students. Our programs—designed for children 3 months and up— include gymnastics, NinjaZone®, Mommy & Me Fitness program, swimming lessons, and Elite’s Peak, our rock-climbing wall.

Our Classes

All students enrolled in Elite's gymnastic classes will participate in a poster reward system, developed by Fun & Fitness Gymnastic Center. This system provides the student with rewards and incentives for learning new skills and also provides parents with a simple way to monitor their child's progress. In addition, Elite offers a wide range of classes designed especially for children 3 months to 6 years of age. These include our Mommy & Me Fitness program, swimming lessons, Lil' NinjaZone®and Elite's Peak, our rock climbing wall.

NinjaZone® is a combination of gymnastics, martial arts and obstacle course training. They learn how to tumble, kick and eventually learn stunt techniques (such as flipping off walls). The goal is to combine coordination from gymnastics, the discipline of martial arts, and the strength and agility from obstacle course training. It’s awesome for kids with energy. The class is fast paced—it begins with a running warm up and then students are taught skills.

There are three NinjaZone® levels. All Ninjas will start on the White level. Your child must be tested in order to advance to the 2nd level (Yellow) or the 3rd level (Green). A new headband is required for each level at the cost of $15. A T-shirt & Headband are required during every NinjaZone class. Order your child’s T-shirt and Headband ($32) at: TheNinjaZone.store or buy one at our front desk.
