find an adult gymnastics class today

If you're trying to find an adult gymnastics class, open gym, or team, this interactive map is a great place to start! Always call or email first as classes are subject to change and the list is not always perfectly up-to-date, particularly due to covid.

i'd rather see the list in spreadsheet form.

Sure thing. Here you go!

Two heads are better than one! If you know of listings I should delete, change or add, please contact me with the info.

adult gymnastics open gyms

If you are unable to find an adult gymnastics class, or an adult class isn't for you, know that some gymnastics clubs allow adults to attend their open gyms. It's best to ask in advance, but that can be a great way to get more access to the equipment. 

If you bring more than one adult with you every week, it might be helpful in convincing the gym to start an adult class, too! Be prepared to have to work around kids who may be doing more playing than gymnastics. Some lucky adult gymnasts are able to find an adult only open gym, and those are really great!

One issue with adult classes is that a lot of gyms become frustrated if a bunch of adults come one week and not the next (some of the classes are set up as a drop-in). If you find a class in your area but aren't in love with every last aspect of it, still see if you can pop in from time to time! Supporting gyms who offer adult class is the best way to ensure that we continue to have these opportunties to train.

what to expect at an adult class

Every adult class is different. I have found quite often that the class ends up catering to the present athletes to some extent. So if most of the athletes who have been going to the class prefer to work mostly independently, the class tends to reflect that.

If you would like the class to be a certain way or to cater to your needs, ask! The worst that will happen is they will not be able to accomodate you. I find that many instructors don't think adults want to be told what to do (i.e. be coached!) in gymnastics. However, if you want that, let them know. Others may want it too but just be too shy to speak up.

Always show appreciation that the class exists while asking for tweaks to be made in how it's run, and you can't lose :)
