Meet Our Instructors

Every instructor at Gym America goes through a training program and all of the staff members are USAG safety certified, so you can be confident that your child is in the best hands.

While we do work to create a fun and engaging environment, we are mindful of the standards and expectations for safety. Our qualified instructors help promote our reputation of reliability by making sure children are always safe and comfortable in their environment. We are diligent not about perfection, but about getting there in a safe and healthy way.
