Funtastic Testimonials!

Family attending for 2 years

My granddaughter is fast approaching the 5 year anniversary of an event that changed a sweet little 6 year olds life. Having to learn many things over and struggling at times with things we all take for granted she found her heart in gymnastics. Her doctors, teachers and family can see the major improvements she has made since joining gymnastics. Her teachers brag on how far she has moved forward since this has been a part of her life. Her physical therapist noticed the major difference in her balance and motor skills and listened to her talking about being in gymnastics and how it was her favorite thing to do. She was released from their therapy and told to keep up the good work. As a happy 11 year old she claims that gymnastics will always be a part of her life...as her family I hope that is always true.

Family Attending for 6 years!

My daighter has been attending Funtastic Gymnastics for six years. She is now 12 years old. While she loves gymnastics and is quite good at it, attending regular gymnastics classes at Funtastic has resulted in her being a stronger, more balanced and fit athlete in general! I highly recommend!
