When JuliaTamburrini’s daughters were a little younger, she wanted to enroll them into an extra-curricular program that promotes physical fitness, confidence and balance. Gymnastics seemed like the perfect fit so Tamburrini sought out to investigate a number of different schools and gyms in the area.
Tamburrini looked into countless clubs and became frustrated “We tried some schools that were way too competitive & no fun,” she said. And we tried some places that were basically empty strip mall retail-spaces with rubber interlocking mats, a few foam blocks, and a banner hanging over the entrance that exclaims “Gymnastics!”
“None of these clubs seemed to strike the right balance which I found Ironic because balance is at the heart of gymnastics,” said Tamburrini “I wanted a school that would help my girls become better young women both on and off the mat.”
“There were really no good options,” continued Julia, “So I said ta’ Heck With It! I will just open one myself and make it the best gymnastics gym in the GTA,” she concluded.
In September 2014 High Flyers Gymnastics opened its doors in Vaughn, ON.
