Ohana Gymnastics

Fitness Made Fun's competitive gymnastics team is called Ohana Gymnastics. This title embodies our team spirit. Ohana gymnastics motto is "Ohana means Family". 

Competitive gymnastics offers children the opportunity to pursue gymnastics to a higher level and experience all of the benefits that go along with it! Competitive gymnastics offers children a unique opportunity to develop a high level of self-esteem, self-discipline, and work ethic. Our team staff is dedicated to guiding each gymnasts to develop these skills in a structured format to progress as high in gymnastics as they wish to go. With Ohana gymnastics we make sure that family and school come first, then gymnastics. We offer low to high commitment options for each level, so the gymnasts and their families can progress as fast or as slow as they would like. 

 

Please note; team levels are designated by ability not age. Team is for ages 5 and older. Team groups may have students, training together, with varied ages. Team placement is only our suggestion of where we feel your child will be most suited. We understand that sometimes families are unable to make either the financial or time commitment required. But with Ohana Gymnastics we have other options that might better suit your needs.
