We are so excited about the launch of our online, virtual at-home classes! During these classes we will be focusing on exercising, stretching, basic skills and drills that they typically learn in the gym, and anything else we can work on with minimal equipment. While we will do our best to work on all 4 events, please understand that these classes will focus mostly on the basic floor skills, stretching, and getting the kids moving and active through exercise movements. With that being said, let me explain to you how you will access the classes.
We are running the classes through an app called Zoom. Please go onto your phone, iPad, computer and download the app. It should be free and you will just need to register and allow the app to access your camera and microphone. This will give us access to see and hear you guys so that we can both communicate to each other when learning.
Gymnasts feel free to wear your leotard for class, just like any other day. Boys, Ninjas, and tumblers make sure you wear athletic clothing you can easily move around!
You can use an Ipad, Iphone, tablet, etc. However, if you do use a laptop please make sure you have enough bandwidth for the video not to freeze up. Finally, please bare with us as we navigate this new area of our program! We think it will be a great asset to keep the kids involved during the pandemic, so feel free to give us any feedback, ideas, and advice to make it better!

4.) Pay nothing but take a picture or video of your gymnast participating and post on social media tagging our gym and using the hashtag #ThomasGymnasticsOnline
Why FREE? We got in this business because we love the sport of gymnastics and the many different skills it can give you athletically as well as in life. The second reason is to help teach kids to live an active and healthy lifestyle and now is more important than ever to do that! We hope you will join us!
During this time it can be scary for individuals as well as small businesses. If we close down the $1,000's of dollars in overhead expenses do not go away. We just ask that you please support us in one of the options above. Share this with your family and friends near and far! We look forward to seeing you guys online!
