Gymnastics Programs Offered
We offer gymnastics classes, gymnastics private lessons, and a morning program.
Our classes are structured to enable each athlete to progress at their own pace. Classes are taught by experienced, certified and background checked coaches (no underage or inexperienced coaches). Consider that in gymnastics, the more practice you get the more progress you make. Beginner athletes may consider joining more than one day a week to accelerate progress.

Progress of a Beginner Gymnast
Our training at Manakoa Gymnastics stresses good form in every detail from the very start of a beginner’s training. Our gymnasts move with a purpose and that purpose is to improve and to gain multi-skills. When you think of progress, think of it as someone learning to read for the first time. Think about the amount of time and effort it takes, as well as all the sub-skills needed to read (i.e. learning the alphabet, memorizing letter sounds and sight words, sounding out syllables, etc.). The initial ability of the individual to learn these sub-skills also plays a factor (e.g. individuals with dyslexia, dysgraphia, or any other cognitive impediments). Gymnastics progress is similar. It depends on many factors. Individuals with average coordination will have a leg up on learning many of the sub-skills, but if they lack muscle strength, particularly upper body strength, then progress may take just a bit longer than someone with both excellent coordination and muscle strength. Upper body strength isn’t developed in any other sport to the extend it is developed and needed for gymnastics skills. There’s also a flexibility factor, and someone with great muscular strength may need to work extra on coordination and flexibility and so on. However, even someone with poor coordination, strength, and flexibility practicing one day a week at Manakoa Gymnastics will show considerable improvement with our technique if they stick with it long enough to learn all the sub-skills. The most important aspect of a beginners training will be consistency and grit. Grit has become a buzz word in many fields because it is considered the main factor that determines success.
