National Gymnastics Day was September 19th and Eagles Gymnastics Center in Martin City was front and center in the celebration! They offered a carnival atmosphere for an entire day of gymnastics and parties, along with a photo booth, popcorn machine and a free pizza party (of course the Pizza came from Martin City Pizza and Tap Room!).
Approximately 200 kids showed up to enjoy the fun! All of Eagles’ competitive teams were invited to come in with their parent(s) where they enjoyed a two-hour event with games, workouts and lots of parent/child interaction.
In the afternoon, a free open gym was open for anyone who wanted to come! New leotards from IVIVVA (part of lululemon) and Spirit wear from First Edition was available for purchase.
The goal of National Gymnastics Day is to promote the sport of gymnastics and its fitness benefits by creating a global celebration of the sport. Member Clubs are encouraged to create activities centered on gymnastics as a means of fitness and offer education and inclusion for all those interested in participating. Clubs and individuals can share their celebrations on social media using the hashtag #NGD2015 . Opportunities for clubs to apply to receive grants are also available on National Gymnastics Day.

ABOUT EAGLES GYMNASTICS CENTER IN MARTIN CITY
Eagles Gymnastics was established in 1983 by Kim Fuchs after 10 years of coaching gymnastics. After moving into their first location, Eagles quickly outgrew the space and only two years later, Eagles built and moved into a second, much bigger building in Martin City – 18,000 square feet – to accommodate all its students and programs.
Kim’s expertise and excellence in gymnastics shows through all the programs offered. She is the head coach of the competitive program which has had many State, Regional and National Champions. In addition, many of her athletes have received full-ride scholarships for their gymnastic abilities.
Fuchs says Eagles wants all kids to enjoy gymnastics – those that want to compete and those that just want to do it for fun. Their recreational program for boys and girls ages 12 months to 17 years is just as important as their competitive program and is designed for MAXIMUM FUN! They use monthly themes with great music, games and fun props to keep the kids excited and interested. When kids are having fun, they learn more quickly and their self-confidence soars!
Along with ensuring a truly fun experience is Eagles commitment to the safest experience possible. Kim thoroughly trains all Eagles’ instructors for the safest learning experience.
