Aspire has an extensive, dedicated gymnastics centre at GL1 providing a programme of gymnastics for children from walking age right through to adults.

We welcome all children, both those new to gymnastics or experienced gymnasts. Classes are led by British Gymnastics qualified coaches.


Taking part in gymnastics has a wealth of benefits such as increasing flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. It’s also a fun and engaging learning environment for children to grow social and physical skills. Our lessons allow children to enjoy exploring, inventing, practicing and performing whilst encouraging them to have fun, make friends and be healthy.
