Kids Supergym’s philosophy is simple. We provide a clean, safe and stimulating environment for children to build self-esteem, confidence and life skills while having fun through physical activity. The sport of gymnastics develops physical strength, flexibility and poise. Learning to do one's best is encouraged at Kids Supergym as well as developing a sense of doing something simply "for the love of it."
Kids Supergym opened its doors in 1992. The fully air-conditioned 9600 square foot facility is equipped with state of the art equipment, 3 trampolines, 2 gyms and a separate kitchen for birthday parties. As cleanliness and safety are a number one priority at Kids Supergym, regular cleaning and maintenance of the facility and the equipment helps it to retain a brand new appearance.
