Many, many girls have quit this gym due do abusive behavior from the male coach. The owner, Rachel Rydbeck, knows about this, and chooses to do nothing. Fear, intimidation, over-conditioning, and shaming are common coaching practices at this gym. Rachel Rydbeck sends out attendance e-mails to all the parents, listing each gymnasts name and how many days per month they missed practice. Gymnasts are made to feel guilty if they miss practice for any reason. There is also a lot of blatant favoritism. Select gymnasts will be chosen to go on outings (shopping trips etc.), and Rachel will post the outings on social media for every gymnast to see. It is very hurtful for those gymnasts not invited. Gymnasts are also put into groups according to skill level, so it is very obvious who the favorites are. The environment at this gym is not caring or nurturing for young athletes. Is is toxic, and there are many parents who can attest to this. Stay away!!!
Reason of review
Poor customer service
Abusive to the young girls training. Yelling and calling names if they don't think your doing something right. Several gymnast's have been in tears and quit. Unethical owner who tries to recruit from other gyms because she can't develop a high level gymnast. Won't communicate with parents, (its my way or the highway type attitude). Uses a military style of practice that's very abusive towards the children. Not a loving and family oriented atmosphere like other gymnastics facilities. Most of the coaches were no higher than level 8. Compared to other gyms the coaches aren't very experienced. Coaches have no children so they do not have a clue on how to treat or develop them. There are a lot of unhappy parents and children that attend this gym and a lot of them will be quitting. My advice is stay as far away as you can and don't put your child into a negative atmosphere like this. You will regret it.
