At GYMTASTICS, we offer a unique, innovative and creative approach to gymnastics instruction. We believe that teaching should focus not only on gymnastic skills, but also on helping develop a child's emotional, mental and physical attributes and self-esteem. In our safe, clean and family-friendly environment, we offer gymnastics and tumbling and trampoline programs for all ages, whether recreational or highly competitive. We believe that gymnastics can enhance the all-around physical health of almost everybody on the planet, and that it provides an excellent base for all sports and life skills.
We bend over backwards for our customers.
Here at Gymtastics we are proud to be one of the fastest growing gym clubs in Western Canada. Our goal is to support and create programs for all levels of athletes starting from the young preschooler to the highest competitive level. Our coaching philosophy concentrates on each individual’s personal growth emotionally, physically, and mentally. Gymtastics uses the fun, fitness, and fundamentals of gymnastics to reach as many people as possible through the sport and help them grow to be the best they can be. We believe that it is not necessarily the final product that is important but the learning process that matters most. We pride ourselves on being child centred and creating a family friendly environment. Our mission is to make everyone feel like they are a star and help every child reach their fullest potential.
Our star attraction and mascot.
GymTwinkle is a lot more than the GYMTASTICS mascot. He's a teaching aide and relatable friend for our pre-school students. GymTwinkle participates in the theme of the week, wearing clown hats for circus week and pajamas during our pajama party. Always ready to greet you with hugs and a big smile, GymTwinkle represents our belief that every child is a star just for being who they are.
"This is a life sport — the benefit of children being in a quality gymnastics program is they learn the fundamentals needed for any sport."
DARLENE "THE BEAN" & "TRIPPIN" TRAVIS
"This is the only sport that combines balance, co-ordination, strength, endurance … it gives children the basic movement skills. You will be inspired to stay healthy the rest of your life."
-Darlene "the Bean"
Darlene “the Bean” Fedyna founded Gymtastics Gym Club in 1990. With over 40 years of experience coaching all ages and stages of athletes she has used her gymnastics experience, early childhood development education, movement education, and astute business skills to develop Gymtastics into one of the premier gym clubs in Canada. From this Darlene created GymtasticsGymTools.com, an educational website that provides useful, simple, gym tools and information to help enhance and grow children’s programs around the world. She is also the founder and president of Gymtastics Play-It-Forward Projects, a children’s charity that is specially designed to provide sports and games programs to underprivileged children worldwide.
Alongside Darlene is her partner “Trippin’” Travis Oxley. Travis started his gymnastics career over 20 years ago. He joined the Gymtastics family in 2007 working in our preschool, recreational and competitive programs. Since then he has become part owner in 2010 and created a name for Gymtastics in the men’s competitive world, developing one of the largest men’s programs in Western Canada. He is also the Men’s Program Committee Technical Chairperson and R.D.C. member for Alberta Gymnastics Federation.
Our owners strive to be the best they can be and they continue to grow and learn with their athletes and staff. Together they have created a positive space for people to play, work, and feel welcome and inspired to challenge themselves and achieve their goals.
