A passion for encouraging children’s physical activity and movement prompted Robin Lozier, a former physical education teacher, and her business partner Chris Lindley, owner of Endorphin, to open Bounce. Their gymnastics studio at the Stanley Marketplace, designed for kids ages 18 months to 15 years “is a place where kids can interact with others in a physical education setting.”
Focusing on a recreational approach, rather than a traditional gymnastics environment, the goal is to help kids have fun while setting and attaining fitness and agility goals and developing their confidence.
Geared for the youngest visitors, Bounce offers toddler/adult sessions that allow kids to explore the gym with their caregiver. Older children may enroll in instructor-led classes designed to teach skills that translate to many sports.
“Parkour classes incorporate a style of movement that involves circuits and obstacle courses,” explains Lozier. “Gymnastics classes are taught by skill level with each child advancing at his/her own pace.” Sessions designed for home-schooled students meet the Colorado state standards for PE. Bounce also offers supervised open gym times. Drop-ins are welcomed as space permits.
All classes and sessions are taught and supervised by experienced gymnastics instructors and parents can observe gym sessions through the floor-to-ceiling observation windows. Birthday parties may be held at Bounce during three scheduled time blocks each Saturday and Sunday from 12:30–6pm.
Fall classes begin Sept. 1, 2017, and summer camp enrollment begins Jan. 1, 2018. Monthly enrollments can begin at any time and there is no membership or annual fee to join.
