Whenever we are in SLC (we live in Idaho) my daughter gets in for a session at Millcreek. The coaches are amazing. Whether one is working on a mental block, starting out or enhancing skills. They have a knack for understanding what the obstacle is (if there is one). They listen to the thoughts and goals of the athletes they ask questions as they coach that help athletes logically think through their process. Needless to say we LOVE and RESPECT Millcreek!

I was a little hesitant at first due to the prices per class but then we tried it with the Groupon. My daughter has been doing gymnastics for about a year and a half prior to starting at Elite Tumbling. She was doing great with developing and skill, yet struggled with the confidence to do a back hand spring. After 3 classes at Elite Tumbling and last night after class she came home and wanted to show us something on the trampoline. She did a back hand spring all by herself! She was so excited and proud of herself and so were we! We have been very impressed with Millcreek and my daughter loves going there!

This place is great! My daughter was at a gymnastics place for almost three years, she was not improving very quickly. I felt as if she was stagnant and nobody was pushing her to grow. My daughter has some friends transfer to Elite so we gave it a try. She has been here for about three months and has grown so much. She could barely do one back handspring, now she is doing six! Her attitude and confidence and grown tremendously. The staff talks to the kids and teaches them the technique. I had never seen a coach talk so much to their students, and even the parents. It is great, I love it, and so glad we changed!!!

-Marci Torres

Love this place! The staff is unbeatable. They really pay attention to where your child needs improvement and as a result goals are achieved. My child is 6 and had not had any formal training. They go through each move and teach her step by step so she has a complete understanding of how to make it work. The staff are all kid friendly and their teaching styles are all amazing. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking!

My daughter started at Millcreek January. I thought it would be just a phase and she would want to quit after a few months, but it has been quite the opposite. Natalie and the other teachers have inspired her and keep her interested and challenge her enough to always be practicing at home. My walls are filthy because she uses them everyday as spotters for handstands and to practice her form :-O. She takes a semi-private lesson with the neighbors and they help each other everyday as they practice on the trampoline. I love the non-competitive environment, where everyone cheers for everyone, but yet they still challenge each other in a positive way. She can now do aerials, back handsprings, back tucks, back pikes and all sorts of other tricks. Thank you Elite for making this first time tumbling family happy!

-Sandra Hickey

My 14 yr old daughter had taken “cheer” tumbling for a year and still could not do a back handspring. After only a few weeks at Elite she was flying through the air!! We thought we would just add lessons for a month or two and now we are going on month four and have no intention of quitting! Also we started our younger daughter who is 7 this summer and she loves it. The teachers are very good at evaluating each athlete and determining what they need to do to succeed. Thanks Millcreek!!

-Monika Hopper

My daughter absolutely loves to attend her lessons at Elite every week. She has improved by leaps and bounds. I am so impressed with the quality of instruction, and my daughter can’t stop talking about how much fun she has!

-Brittnie Reilly

MY daughter LOVES her Wednesdays thanks to Millcreek, she is only on her second or third month and I already see such improvement GREAT JOB MILLCREEK the teachers are GREAT 🙂

-Anonymous

My kids learned more in 2 months at Elite Tumbling than they did in about 3 years at another gym in town. I can tell the owners and coaches really care about my kids emotional well being because they build my kids up rather than get mad at them to do the tricks. My kids love going there and I am very impressed with what they already learned.

For us, watching children learn to become self-assured and confident is one of the best parts of teaching. Contact us now!

Unique & Effective Program

Our private instruction is more effective than classes. We specifically designed a program where we teach skills quickly, safely, and in a fun and positive environment. Even taking private instruction from other programs is not as effective because they do not have the specialized program and equipment that makes our students learn the fastest and with great technique.

Because we don’t want to share our uniquely designed program with our competitors we invite you to come see and feel the difference. Check out our book and articles in the gym that describe what we teach and our unique program. At Millcreek Gymnastics we believe that every child can and will learn a back hand spring and back tuck if they stick with the program.

Benefits of After-school gymnastics program

Improved Mental Capacity 

The return to school brings a shift in focus. Therefore, people start thinking of ways to improve their mental capacity and capabilities. Many studies have shown that regular exercise improves (and even creates new) neural pathways in the brain. With the advances in science, we are realizing that improved mental capacity comes as a result of having a healthy body. After-school pickup for Millcreek Gymnastics will enable your child to improve their learning capacity. 

After-school gymnastics improves children’s ability to concentrate while also providing a great way to keep children physically active. Most children naturally love doing gymnastics because it provides an outlet for their desire to explore what their bodies are capable of.

Furthermore, gymnastics can be more beneficial for developing a child’s neural pathways than just regular exercising. In gymnastics, students must use concentration, understand the instructions, be able to tell their bodies how to respond, and be physically able to perform the skills. By incorporating learning and concentration with physical activity, gymnastics provides another way for students to maximize the benefits from becoming physically fit.

Did you know that according to the American College of Sports Medicine it is recommended that just for basic health every child should be active at a moderate intensity for more than one hour per day? The Institute of Medicine also recommends that adults are active at a moderate-intensity physical activity for 60 minutes. To prevent weight gain and to accrue other health benefits. Below are listed some benefits of exercise.

Life Skills

We understand the importance of teaching a child the key life skills for success; therefore, we put forth so much effort to integrate the following teachings into our program:

  • Positive Self-talk

    – We teach our students how to use positive self-talk when experiencing difficulty so they can keep a positive attitude when they are struggling to get their skills. We also teach children that mistakes are lessons and opportunities to grow. Consequently, they learn to turn a potentially negative situation into one where they feel competent and have a positive belief in their ability to succeed. As a result, we have seen time and time again that this positive experience carries over into their everyday lives, including their performance in school.

  • Confidence

    – We take pride in helping children realize that they can do something if they stay positive and put their mind and effort toward it. For us, watching children learn to become self-assured and confident is one of the best parts of teaching. We feel it is especially relevant to create happy, successful and confident children; that grow into happy, successful and confident adults.

  • Hard work

    – Our main goal is to create a desire in children to try hard and achieve their best. The hard work of gymnastics training can give young minds a better understanding of what commitment and hard work are. Also, learning these skills at a young age can help shape a healthy lifestyle by encouraging your child to stay physically fit and active throughout their life.

  • Personal Achievement

    – We believe success is based on a personal best instead of comparisons with others. We help all students reach success through setting goals that are focused on personal achievement and by effectively teaching the skills necessary to reach their goals. Not comparing yourself to others in life is a necessary skill and key ingredient to happiness. To learn this at a young age can give your child a head start to having a great life.

Come to Millcreek and experience our unique after-school program that challenges every child and teaches them valuable skills they will utilize throughout their lives!
