Our Class Philosophy

  • Progressive

    Gymnastics classes at Altius are based on USA Gymnastics curriculum. Coaches teach fundamental skills and concepts on all Olympic events using a step-by-step approach. Multiple training stations, trampolines, and pits ensure a safe, progressive environment.

  • Personal

    Classes are divided by both skill level and age to create a more personal experience for our students. Coaches place an emphasis on strength, coordination, respect and high energy fun! Small class sizes allow coaches to handle multiple levels in one group.

  • Accomplishment

    Students develop strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and confidence as they master new skills. Our curriculum fosters a sense of accomplishment in every child by breaking down skills into achievable class levels.
