Olympian Among Partners To Take Over Pearland Gymnastic Gym!
Pearland Gymnastics Academy acquired Gymtastics in 2015 by Sean Townsend (former US Men's Olympian and World Champion) and Chris Moak (former Gymtastics Gym Manager).
Sean Townsend is an American artistic gymnast. He was part of the US Men's gymnastics team at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia and the 1999 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships team. He was part of the 2001 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships team where he became world champion on Parallel Bars and helped his team win a silver medal in the Team finals. He also qualified to the Men's Individual All Around final where he placed 8th.
In forming Pearland Gymnastics Academy we choose to focus specifically on providing an atmosphere that is conducive to teaching young athletes the fundamentals of gymnastics, cheerleading, and other fitness based programs. By providing our athletes with a safe and productive environment, we will nourish them with positive reinforcement, and to develop a confident attitude about themselves. Our enthusiastic and effective coaching instruction for our student athletes, combined with honest and professional business management, will allow Pearland Gymnastics Academy to maintain our powerful and strategic programs.
Pearland Gymnastics Academy will continue to offer summer camps, birthday parties, field trips, and the monthly Parents Night-Out (a fun-filled evening with pizza, games, crafts, open gym, and trampoline time).
