For nearly twenty-five years the staff of Lana’s Gymnastics Club has been influential in the general development of thousands of local children. We believe that the lessons these children have learned at Lana’s Gymnastics Club have helped make them the strong leader, outstanding athletes, and confident students that they are.
Our mission is to provide a safe and happy environment in which your child can increase their self-confidence by developing their athletic ability.
The journey to success starts within, and at Lana’s Gymnastics Club, we stress that the value of every person is not based on their skill level, or what a judge thinks. We believe in drawing out personal strengths, and teach that victory is not won by comparison, but by the small inner victories we as individuals, accomplish every day!
We believe in the necessity of every child being able to participate in their future success by engaging in our club in the present. Therefore, we offer affordable rates. We desire to develop within our participants, an attitude of commitment, responsibility, perseverance, strong will, confidence, teamwork, and respect. We expect that parents too, develop the above attitude through involvement with the club and in the growth of your child, as you participate with them in this process together.
We desire for your child to build lifelong friendships, and to utilize the value of our program as they venture out into the world. We truly are delighted for the opportunity of being a light to your child!

We keep safety and comfort in mind in the design of our Pre-School Gymnasium facility. Popular cartoon characters decorate the walls and the soft, colorful multi-shaped mats protect from possible injury. All equipment is made especially for pre-school aged children, designed with safety in mind. Exercises are taught with the use of gymnastic ladders, rings, pedant ropes, balance beams and trampoline. This fun-filled program consists of games, choreographed exercises, dance and gymnastics positions. Popular children’s music helps students get involved in the routines.
Kinder Gym (4 years old)
This independent pre-school program focuses on movement education and creative expression. In this 60-minute class, modified gymnastics apparatus is utilized to create a specially designed program for pre-school children. Basic gymnastics will be learned in a fun playful way with the help of music and games to further develop self-confidence and spatial awareness.
Beginners Level (from 5 years old)
We believe individuals advance at their own pace while remaining part of the “team”.
Our goals include developing:
Strength, balance, spatial awareness, flexibility, coordination, loco-motor, non-loco-motor and manipulation skills. Our program contributes to each child’s physical, mental and social development building the individuals poise, self-confidence and self-esteem. Teaching very basic skills, improving previously learned skills, and learning new skills in an order that follows the specific sequences and progressions prescribed by the United Sates Gymnastics Federation.
This is our development program that takes students to the next level. Fine-tune skills emphasizing strength, flexibility, body alignment and gymnastics skills. Skills taught include forward and backward rolls, head and handstands, cartwheels, and basic skills on the bars, beam, and vault. When ready, students will be taught back extension rolls, round off, handstand rolls, walkovers, and more advanced skills on all gymnastics equipment.
Mobility through Advanced is achieved by successfully completing progressions set forth by the Team Directors based on USA Gymnastics guidelines. The progressions for the Advanced Program cover the following six areas of basic gymnastics development: Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, Floor Exercise, Strength and Flexibility. There are 4-5 progressions for each of the above areas and all must be achieved before entry into the competitive level.
Naturally talented students who radiate a passion for the sport of gymnastics and are able to meet the required time commitment, are invited to our Junior Olympic programs. ?As part of a team, these young athletes learn, and ultimately perform, the national guidelines for gymnastics skill and routines. Their interest in the sport and the camaraderie they share are ingredients for success in and out of the competition arena.
