Our goal is to develop your child’s talents and build their character through in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment. We believe that success is defined as personal best.
Our objectives are to help make your child a happier, healthier, and more athletic individual with good character. Self confidence, excitement in learning, and athletic ability will be developed in a fun and exciting setting. They will benefit from increased physical activity and improvement in strength, flexibility, and coordination. Good character is developed by learning self-awareness, self-discipline, self-motivation, and the value of hard work and time management as well as respect and responsibility.
Additionally we strive to:
- Allow children to experience competition
- Teach teamwork
- Teach goal setting and self evaluation
- Encourage everyone to be their best
In our preschool classes we emphasize learning basics gymnastics skills and strength through fun games and activities. Our specialized preschool area is the perfect place for your child to develop their strength, flexibility, and coordination. Your child will enjoy jumping on the trampoline and climbing in and out of the foam pit as well. Lastly, as always, our classes promote respect and responsibility.

In addition to giving our students the academic skills they need to succeed and the physical activities they need to be healthy, we strive to instill confidence, happiness, understanding of emotions, and the development of healthy relationships with others, in our students. The significance of social and emotional development is seen in every area of a child's life.
Karen Bowers and Kristi Baty opened Summit Gymnastics Academy in January of 2008 in Sinagua High School’s old wrestling room with a strip of floor, two beams, a set of bars, a vault, incredibly committed athletes and parents, and a dream! Summit Gymnastics is now a state of the art facility with approximately 12,500 square feet that offers a safe environment for kids to make exercise an integral part of their lives while learning the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Our goals are to meet every child’s individual needs while teaching balance, strength, agility, flexibility, and life skills. Although we at SGA believe learning a cartwheel or a new jump are great ways to improve fitness levels and develop self confidence there’s really so much more going on! Physical activity stimulates the brain in essential ways to promote proper brain development for later “higher learning.” And as our children spend more time sitting (watching TV, using the computer, playing computer games, etc.) it is important to balance these activities with a steady supply of healthy, physical exercise. Best of all-your kids will love participating because our activities are naturally fun! They won’t even know something deeper is happening-they’ll just know they are having a blast!
