Sport and fitness have always been a big part of my life and even more so when I had my own children. I have witnessed first-hand the positive impact an active healthy lifestyle can have on children.
It was always my dream to own a gym for children and following my experience as a franchisee within a children’s gym I realised my dream in 2010 with the launch of Balance & Beam Gymnastics.
Seven years on and we continually hear from parents what a real difference our wonderful programme makes to their children
Every day is fun here at the gym and we feel inspired and privileged, teaching children and helping to make a difference to the lives of all our members We pride ourselves on our high standards and our approach in teaching our child development programme. All my amazing Balance & Beam team are nurturing and highly experienced in identifying the needs of individual children. This makes our programme suitable for all children, meaning we have helped the shyest of children to overcome their fears of failure, we have channelled the energy of some of the liveliest of children into a positive one & for children with behavioural problems, they have learnt how to listen, share, take turns & interact with other children. Children with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, hyper mobile joints and co-ordination difficulties have come on leaps and bounds as we focus on motor skill development and cognitive learning.
Today more than 500 children attend weekly gymnastic classes, learning important life skills along the way such as turn taking, sharing and following instruction and the best part about our fantastic programme is that children just think they are having FUN.
We are continually striving to improve our programme and always welcome feedback from our members.
For more information on anything we do here please give us a call on 01782 214452.
We are always happy to help!
“My daughter Freya regularly attends camps in the school holidays. She really enjoys the wide range of activities. The camps feature time in the gym as well as some fun crafty time. As a parent I know that I am leaving Freya in a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment and when she is picked up she is already looking forward to her next camp”

“For me balance and beam is now one of four core elements of care / socialisation for a toddler in their early stages. Exercise, strength and learning things in a class environment & out school clubs all obvious extra bonuses.”
