“I like gymnastics because I learned how to flip over the rings and the bars. I love to swing on the trapeze over the pit and jump in. I used to be afraid, but I’m not anymore. ” – MJ age 8
“I like doing the trapeze bar and now I can climb up the rope. I like jumping into the pit, doing somersaults, and wall kick ups. I got good at hanging up on the rings because I am stronger. Now I can do a jumping jack but still working on pushups and sit ups.” – Christopher, age 8
“I like to run and try to catch Dala” -Josie, age 4
“Jaden has had therapy gymnastics for 2 years with Dala at Northbrook Gymnastics. The equipment and environment are fantastic. Jaden loves watching the other kids do their class as he does his. Jaden said, “My name is Jaden” to one of the girls on the team. Dala is a wonder worker with Jaden, helping to address the full range of occupational therapy in the gym. Therapy gymnastics rocks!” -Adrienne, mom
“I like doing somersaults!” – Luisa, age 3
“The progress my children have made in the past months has been amazing to watch. TYGR is a wonderful change to the standard therapy sessions. My kids have so much fun, and don’t realize that it is work. I really like the way that each session is finished with my kids hearing the ‘great thing they did that class.’ It lets them leave with such confidence, and a sense of ‘I did a great job’.”
“I hope this helps let people know that you guys are very special to my family and my children. You bring out the TYGR in my kids.” –Sonya A.
“Luca loves to be in his recreational class with Coach Ken while his brother and sisters are in their therapy gymnastic class. It’s great that my children are able to share a common bond through gymnastics and yoga. We are able to all practice yoga, at home together!”
