About Us

Gymnastics East has been training gymnasts and offering fun fitness classes since 1979. It is owned and operated by Kim Thomson and Roberta Diles. Kim was a member of our early team then returned to coach. She bought the gym with Roberta in Y2000. Roberta, an elementary school teacher and personal trainer, has directed the class program since 1988. Together they continue to share their joy for the sport and believe that participation in gymnastics from an early age sets the base to succeed in any sport.

Our competitive team continues to be one of the top ranked teams in our State and Region with a focus on achieving college scholarships for our graduating seniors.

Competitive Gymnastics

Our Competitive team continually wins state, regional and national awards. We are also proud to have helped numerous gymnasts sign collegiate scholarships. Gymnastics East currently has competitive teams at the Compulsory, Optional and Xcel levels.

Flying Ninja Program

New for the 2018-2019 School Year and inspired by “American Ninja Warrior” we bring to you our own Ninja program full of obstacle courses to challenge mind and body, teaching students to move through obstacles with fluidity, prowess and stealth using skillful spins, rolls, jumps, and flips.

For boys 1st – 5th grade.  These classes will develop critical thinking, improve strength, coordination and air sense. The ever-changing obstacles and challenges will build self confidence as they learn to accept and master each challenge presented.

Flying Ninjas Level 1: 45 minute classes teaching on-axis rolling, jumping, climbing and moving efficiently.
Saturday 10:30 – 11:15am – 1st & 2nd grade boys
Saturday 11:30 – 12:15pm – 3rd – 5th grade boys
