Since the business reopened in June under co-owners Sue Kinane, Sean Townsend and Chris Moak, Pearland Gymnastics Academy is looking to expand its offerings and gym space. The facility on Veterans Drive provides recreational and competitive gymnastics as well as cheerleading and preschool programs, Kinane said.
In July, the business remodeled its front gym exclusively for preschool and recreation programs. The back gym is now reserved for team gymnastics.
“We’re looking into adding a quad trampoline, trapeze [and] hopefully a climbing wall,” Kinane said.
She said she hopes to eventually add a pit in the back gym, but that dream is still far off.
In the meantime, the business opened a pro shop to sell snacks, gear and Pearland Gymnastics Academy merchandise. Kinane said she wants to offer more programs, such as “Mommy and Me” classes or clinics in 2016. Staff already added adult tumbling and Parents’ Night Out, the latter of which allows parents to bring their children to the gym for activities and food while enjoying an evening out.
“We have a lot more birthday parties now,” Kinane said. “We’ve even rented out the space a couple times for karate and cheerleading.”
The business extended its operating hours and Kinane said late-night classes would be added if necessary.
