Apollo Gymnastics x12- “Apollo Gymnastics right off of Hoadly and PWPkwy.” “APOLLO especially if they are serious and want to compete.” “3 of our 4 have gone to Apollo and we have really liked it a lot.  My one daughter had a teacher one session we did not like, but other than her the experience has been great.” “My son does gymnastics at Apollo.  He has had great coaches.” “Apollo is great, but there are some instructors who work better with different kids.  The parent area is great to watch and ask around about instructors (and can be visited before you sign up to research).” “I am a former gymnastics coach and currently a personal trainer.  I highly recommend Apollo.  My daughters love it and have improved by leaps and bounds.  It is expensive, but one of the best around here.” “Very well run”

Youth Sports Gymnastics x 11- “Love youth sports gymnastics near BJs in Wdbg!” “We checked out quite a few and really liked Youth Sports….the coaches there are really great.” “I’ve heard great things about Youth Sports, we did not have a good experience with our children at Apollo.” “We’ve done Youth Sports and Novak…like both” “Great for girls and boys.” “Most have a free trial class; however, Apollo does not.  I did not want to sign up for a class without trying it first.  We have been at novaks, world, and youth sports.  Most impressed with youth sports. It is clean and does not smell like feet!” “My daughter goes to Youth Sports.  She loves it.” “My son has been at Youth Sports for 6 years.  Clearly we love it there.”

Dulles Gymnastics Academy- “Dulles gymnastics academy is great.  For under 5yo, $8, 11-12pm on Fridays.  It’s great because your kid can try everything out and they have two instructors present.”
