First In Flight Gym has been under new ownership since 2009. The preceding reviews are all in 2008. The facility, staff, and coaches have changed since the gym has come under new ownership. It is ran more like a business now, and everyone ( especially the children) are being treated like another number. In the past, they were treated with respect. I would like to share my experience with you.

I recently pulled my children out of First In Flight Gym. My experience was that my oldest daughter, who had never tumbled or taken gymnastics before, was put down and made to feel guilty because she wasn’t able to do what the other kids were doing. The coach yelled at her, never encouraged her, or gave any positive feedback on what she could do to improve. She wasn’t even in the competition classes, like my other children. She was in the Non-Competitive Recreation Classes. My other children had similar experiences in their more competitive classes. When I was in the gym, everything seemed fine. But when I would just drop my children off, I would hear of how they were treated by the coaches/teachers and then by the other students, who just followed the leader. I honestly believe that my children are not the only ones being exposed to this verbal abuse and would advise anyone to take a closer look.

My Daughter has taken gymnastics for almost 16 years and recently moved to this facility. It is amazing! a great family atmosphere. The owners really care for every student & family. They have equipment that most gyms do not.... to help your child advance. I totally reccommend this facility it is the best gym I have ever seen. The coaches are phenomnal. Thanks First and Flight staff for loving what you do! You are the Best!....oh one more thing....... totally ignore that very first posting that you read from Gymworld (by the way we never attended gymworld).....Come out & see for yourself! You be the judge of First and Flight I was and I am glad that I did.

Just giving my opinion here some may agree and others may not but this is the beauty of open message forms. The coaches are great! The facility is nice and quite large. The owners are new to the business (which you can tell) and structure is lacking. I gave the "feels like a business or a family" a 5 because I am not looking for a family, you are paying for a service and you expect to get top notch service dealing with "ANY" business. You can teach anyone anything if you keep repeating the same thing over and over again. Mistakes will happen and you will need to correct them but next will come perfection. The programs they offer need to be more structured and offer more practice time for the kids who are competing. When a child walks away crying because they did not practice the day before a competition you as a parent feel horrible. The child fells failure already. All around it has good potential if they could address and correct the problems they already have. This is a business ultimately and to make a business grow you need to know what you are doing.

First in Flight is the best. This gym has the best coaches and owners. The atmosphere is truly one that puts the gymnasts first. The owners care about what is best for their teams and their coaches. It is definitely a family oriented gym, where the parents support one another and work together. I have been truly blessed to work with owners that are caring and compassionate about the teams, their families, and their coaches. My daughter’s enthusaism for the sport is a pleasure to watch. She has been involved in gymnastics for about 7 years. Changing gyms enabled her to renew excitement and zest for gymnastics. She loves the sport and has improved in her techniques since moving to this gym about 8 months ago.

The gym itself has the best equipment. Whatever the gymnasts need, the owners provide. The facility is huge and clean (something we were not used to!!!).

I am thrilled to be a part of this fantastic gym. The gymnasts receive genuine love, care, and support. Bob and Renee are so much more than owners and give over and above what’s needed for the gym. Our cups are truly running over here! what a blessing!

Absolutely the Best Gym my daughter has ever attended. I drive 45 minutes to bring my daughter passing 3 other gyms in my area. This gym has excellent owners who provide the best equipment, coaches and facility available.
