Serving the Greater Columbus, OH Area Since 1980
Columbus Gymnastics Academy provides recreational and competitive gymnastics, tumbling programs, Ninja Zone Classes and clinics to students of all ages, ranging from 10 months to 17 years. We are committed to providing all students with a fun and safe environment where they can increase their self-esteem and engage their mind and body.
Whether your child wants to become a gymnast or just experience gymnastics, the physical, emotional and social skills developed in our classes and teams are useful throughout life.
Columbus Gymnastics Academy opened in June 1979 as an all-boys competitive gym in Worthington, OH. After one-year the girls competitive programs were added. In 1985, CGA expanded, adding a second gym on the east side of Columbus, with a recreational and competitive program. In 1990, the east location moved to a recreation only facility on Americana Parkway in Reynoldsburg, and in 1993, the competitive gym moved to a 22,000 sq. ft. facility in Worthington.
Our competitive program was very successful, with a number of boys being placed on the USA Junior National team while they were training at Columbus Gymnastics Academy. In 1998, the decision to concentrate on recreational gymnastics was made, and the competitive gym in Worthington was sold. CGA built a 10,000 square foot gym in Reynoldsburg in 2000 and expanded to its current 12,000 square foot facility in Canal Winchester in 2014. After adding a former Romanian Olympic coach to the CGA staff in 2011, CGA started another girls competitive program. In the short time that CGA has had the girls’ competitive team, we are proud of our many State individual and All-Around champions. Placement for the team is through a review process with the head coach. We currently are competing in Ohio and throughout the Midwest, but eventually across the country and around the world!
In addition to the girls’ competitive program, Columbus Gymnastics Academy also offers full programs the recreational gymnast. We have recreational classes in tumbling, gymnastics, and trampoline & tumbling from beginning through advanced levels in a safe, child-centered and positive environment, for children age 6 to 17 years of age. Our Tumble Katz program offers classes for children 10 months to 6 years of age.
In 2015. we introduced our Ninja Program for boys age 3-11 years old. Ninja is a new sport that combines martial arts, gymnastics, and obstacle course training into a fun and fast paced class for boys (if there is an interest, we will add girls classes).
The competitive Trampoline and Tumbling team was started in 2016. The team is a member of USTA and competes on trampoline, double mini tramp, and rod floor. This sport is open to both boys and girls.
