Destination Fun at Planet Gymnastics
For more than 11 years Planet Gymnastics, located at 1755 Plummer Street, Unit 8, Pickering, has been providing quality, structured, recreational gymnastic programs for children ages 2 – 18 years. The 36 week program is predesigned for the year so that each child receives the identical weekly activity schedule no matter what time or day they attend. “We really focus on quality to make sure that classes are identical for everyone,” explains gym owner, Shawn Campbell. The program is structured in circuits so there is no wait time between activities with each child receiving 10 minutes of quality coaching on each piece of equipment. “And there is no such thing as a better coach [at Planet Gymnastics] because program is standardized across the board,” says Campbell. All of Planet Gymnastics’ certified coaches must undergo a six month mentoring program, and must be first aid and High-5 certified. Further, they must possess a specific character trait – they simply must be FUN!
Campbell is no stranger to gymnastics. In the past, he coached the Ontario Men’s National Team and he can count the Canadian Men’s National Champion as one of his students. As well, four of his former students are now performers with Cirque Du Soliel in Los Vegas. When Campbell opened the Pickering gym, he was looking for an alternative to the 25 years of competitive gymnastics he had been involved in up until then. He was interested in creating an environment that focused on the recreational side of the sport and Fun is what Planet Gymnastics focuses on. However, when one of Planet Gymnastics’ students demonstrates the qualities necessary for competition, Campbell has been known to recommend that child on to an outside competitive program.
Campbell’s philosophy has proved fruitful and in 2005, Planet Gymnastics opened a second location in Whitby. When asked what his recipe for success is, Campbell replied, “Our client service is second to none. We really go out of our way to make sure that [our clients] get every penny of value.” Planet Gymnastics offers make-up classes should a child not be able to attend his or her usual class. “No one else offers make-ups,” explains Campbell. Planet Gymnastics also offers summer camps with the same flexible attendance philosophy and unique program. Want to give them a try? Let Planet Gymnastics host your child’s birthday party or just drop in for a complimentary session. “We always offer a free class,” explains Campbell “and if people sign up that day they get an extra free class.” Now that’s an offer to flip over!
