Dynamite Gymnastics Center was built for safety and fun!
The math is easy. Hundreds of square feet of bouncing floors + too many foam squares to count deep in our tumbling pits + trampolines + loads of tumbling tracks equals thousands of square feet of bouncing, balancing, and bounding. It’s serious business. When there’s an extra spring in every step, every gymnast and coach has that much more fun.
But before any gymnast could tumble through the doors, the plan for safety was put in place. Our gyms are equipped top to bottom with only state of the art equipment--Janssen-Fritsen, Ross, Elite, Eurotramp, and TumblTrak--all first rate in the industry. We pay particular attention to the layout of our gyms ensuring ample space for all of our gymnasts to make the most of their experience in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. From our 1,500 square foot pre-school zone to our extensive competition-level apparatuses for Women’s Artistic gymnasts…to our Tumbling & Trampoline arenas and Aerial Silks equipment, Dynamite’s facilities offer the space for any gymnast or athlete, at any level to grow, leap, bounce, and flip their way to success.
And, while the kids are hard at work inside the gym, parents can relax and make the most of some time to themselves. With free Wi-Fi, vending machine, and a wide viewing area of the whole gym, parents can watch their kids land their first cartwheel while finishing up that last work email. Additionally, our Pro Shop at Dynamite Gymnastics Center is full of awesome Quantum leotards, Dynamite-branded t-shirts, sweats and all sort of other gymnastics must-haves.
THE AGILITY CENTER:
In 2012, the DynamiteGyms campus was launched with the opening of our second gym, TAC. Agility as a discipline was created by the Dynamite owners in 2012 to develop strength, balance, endurance, problem solving, determination, and much more. The mixture of gymnastics technique, obstacle courses and free style movements is the perfect option for kids looking to do a little bit of everything. All of these fundamental concepts feed into our overall ninja warrior theme used to strengthen kids from the inside out. Our two-level gym (10,000 sq. ft. total) offers two very different, yet exhilarating learning experiences. The upper gym has four in-ground trampolines, a large foam pit, rod floor, and a suspended obstacle course with an ever-changing suite of suspension equipment that includes climbing ropes, cargo net, swings, jumps, rings, trapeze bars, and barrels. The lower gym features stability obstacle courses including warped walls, quadruple steps, swinging bars, and climbing blocks that are arranged into hurdle jumps, body props, vaults, wall climbs, and more! Both levels of gyms are reconfigured bi-weekly to focus on different skills and provide new and exciting challenges, targeted to specific points of training.
Bolt Parkour & Freerunning Academy is Montgomery County's 1st gym dedicated to the love and movement of Parkour and Freerunning. In outlining our mission, we sought to create a gym where participants of ANY age or experience level can be given the tools and guidance to be safe and successful when practicing and/or applying their skills to the natural environment.
Our 7,200 sq ft facility has two separate parkour areas: One developmental area, to learn and progress your skills and then a separate area, to apply these skills and simulate the outdoor environment. The developmental area is comprised of a 2,000 sq ft carpet-bonded foam floor (360 sq ft is a spring floor) as well as a variety of soft blocks and mats for safe progressions. The Parkour area consists of a variety of interchangeable wood blocks and metal bars. All Traceurs--beginners through advanced--will periodically use trampolines to develop air awareness, improve rotation and twisting techniques, and gaining confidence with skills before attempting them on harder surfaces.
