Gym 360

Gym360_MAINWelcome to Gym360!

We are pleased to introduce our new
recreational gymnastics levels experience: Gym360!

Developed by Kyle and his Olympic Coach, Kelly Manjak, this unique program is an adaptation of the CanGym program with a Kyle Shewfelt Gymnastics twist. This program was designed to offer participants an all-around gymnastics experience while also encouraging the development of important physical abilities and life skills.

In this program, participants will navigate their way through 10 different levels while they are tested on various gymnastic progressions, skills and element combinations. Specific strength, flexibility and character components will be assessed as well. Each of the Gym360 levels consist of unique requirements which must be mastered in order to graduate to the next level. Once participants conquer all 10 levels, they will earn their very own Gold Medal!

We truly believe this program will not only teach participants cool new gymnastics tricks, but it will give them a wonderful and well-rounded foundation for an active and healthy life.
