"GOLD MEDAL RAVE REVIEWS"
"The facility is clean, they have a huge array of equipment, and the program is so valuable for the price."
"My daughter just started at Gold Medal Huntington and loves it!! The teachers are incredible and work so well with her! She has learned so much in the short time she have been going. Thank you Gold Medal!!!"
"My daughter loves the program and the staff."
"BEN WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD"
I couldn't believe it! He actually did it! I have no doubt that Miss Marti had everything to do with it! Her encouragement and enthusiasm made all the difference!
Ben broke his arm this time last year and has since been a bit more cautious but now he’s doing great! We love GMGC, it is a great facility and each and everyone on the staff is exceptional! Also I really like the weekly lesson plans and Ben was beaming with pride when I read it to him! Thank you again!

Thank you for supporting my Team Fox efforts to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Your generosity not only inspired me in my fundraising, but also provided the much needed assistance for Parkinson’s research efforts. Together we brought the Michael J. Fox Foundation one step closer to the finish line - a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
Becoming a Team Fox member and being a part of the fight against Parkinson’s disease has been a rewarding experience, enriched by GMGC's support. In total, I raised $4,129.20 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and I could never have accomplished this without your help.

As another wonderful year winds down, I wanted to write to you to express my deepest gratitude towards your staff. My daughter Melissa is finishing up her 2nd year at Gold Medal. She is currently in the accelerated program as well as the flipping class. Of course, she also tries to attend the open gym each Saturday because she wants to work on her skills as much as possible.
Three times each week she and I enter the gym and are greeted by Jeannine, Marialaina, Talor, and Katie. It doesn’t matter what day it is or who it is because EACH one of these ladies are spectacular. They know every child by name, each parent, and a warm and welcoming. They help the kids and parents whether it be answering a question, helping with a leotard, or giving ice or a Band-Aid when needed, they are always cheerful, kind, and courteous. I have seen them dealing with some difficult parents and at times, even being spoken to disrespectfully by a parent and they never lost their professionalism. That is quite a feat!
Now, as for the coaches… Melissa works with many coaches at open gym and each one is helpful and spots her with caution, correctly, and carefully. I know my daughter is safe when she has classes at Gold Medal. For both of her classes, Melissa has Miss Danielle as a coach. I can NOT put into words what a spectacular coach she is. She’s like none other! She is diligent, hard-working, considerate, compassionate, loving, nurturing, demanding, and expects the BEST out of EVERY one of her students. Who could ask for more than that? She is 1 million!
You’ve hired a staff that is unparalleled and no one has individuals like them. I feel blessed to know them all. Thank you for having such wonderful people at Gold Medal. Thanks to them, my daughter LOVES, LIVES, and LEARNS gymnastics like no other!
Once again, you are a lucky man to have such a magnificent staff at your gym!
- Regards from a very pleased mom, Michelle (and Melissa, too!)
Both of my children, Lisa (7) and Luke (3 1/2) are registered in the Silver Stars class. I just want to bring to your attention my happiness with the level of professionalism and dedication I found a GMGC. My children have participated in a lot of different programs and is very rare to come across teachers/coaches as what I have seen in Marti. Marti is consistently an incredibly patient, understanding and compassionate towards my children. I feel very comfortable and at ease when I watch her work with both Lisa and Luke. Also, Lisa has been taking private 30-minute sessions with Sammy. And here too, I am amazed with the consistent enthusiasm and encouragement offered my daughter. Sammy always has a smile on her face. I have noticed beautiful progress for my daughter and an increase in her self-esteem. I am grateful to Marti and Sammy for this development in my daughter. I plan to continue with your Gymnastic Centers for both classes and private sessions.
With much gratitude and respect, I thank you for providing quality teachers/coaches to my family.
- Very truly yours, Dena
Thank you for the wonderful party that you threw for my girls (Elaina and Sari). We have had a lot of parties over the years between my three children and I think this one was the best. The party was very well organized and the staff was supportive and helpful. The staff was able to keep the kids under control and supervised without chaos. I could tell that the kids really enjoyed themselves.
We can’t thank Ms. Marti enough. I don’t know how she works 7 days a week and is able to maintain her enthusiastic and positive attitude toward the children. She’s one on a million.
- Sincerely, Barri
"I love this place!!"
"I did gymnastics there for a little bit I liked the set up the people and the way they teach just an amazing place."
"Great... I love it, they are so nice and in just about 4 weeks I already learned how to do a handstand and other skills."
I just wanted to let you know that my daughter Varvara had a very productive, happy and motivational year under Coach Sarah. Sarah has been a fantastic teacher for the mini team and this group of girls have come so far! Sarah is a very positive, happy and enthusiastic person who has maintain a steady paced work ethic along with keeping the fun in gymnastics she is a great role model and I know that we would not have progressed to this point without her hard work and dedication. Sarah and Jill are a great team and I hope they remain at GMGC for a very long time… Long enough for Alexis to have them (ha ha ha). Anyway I think it is good to let you know how much we value the staff!
- Thanks for everything, Jeanette
I’ve been with GMGC for some time now with more than one child and I want to let you know that this year was a great year in regards to the preschool program. Samantha and Mrs. Marti did a wonderful job instructing my child. I felt that the structure of the program gave my child a much better foundation in gymnastics than I have seen in the past and skill wise she is moving along very well. I especially want to let you know that both instructors show a lot of care to the children. They take the time to get to know each and every child and show no favoritism as I have seen in past years. I especially appreciate the way Mrs. Marti handles the children when it comes to dealing with emotional issues, behavioral issues and motivational issues. Sometimes when instructors are not parents they do not relate to the individual growth process of each child. Every child develops at a different pace in different areas in their own time.
Mrs. Marti really loves the children and it comes across in the way she deals with them on the floor. It also shows in the way she communicates with the parents. She has helped me work through some issues with both of my children over the years. Out of all the instructors I’ve dealt with over the years, she is the one and only who will always greet them with a smile and a hug even when they have moved onto a higher level and she is no longer instructing them. When your child spend so much time in the gym it is nice to know that there is an instructor who care about your child as much as you do.
Let’s face it this sport is a luxury for many in the face of the current economy and if you are going to pay tuition you certainly want your child to be happy as well as show progress. This year I feel my tuition was well spent (with both children) and thought that you might want to hear some positive feedback.
- Thank you for your time!
Thank you so much for the great year. This was Jillian‘s first experience with gymnastics and although she started out slowly I couldn’t be happier with her improvement throughout the year. She had lots of fun and met some nice friends in addition to having a great introduction to gymnastics. Thanks again!
- Best, Cathy
I am writing this letter to thank you for the activities available at your gym. I particularly appreciate the extracurricular activities that you have, such as Open Gym and Parent’s Night Out. I am impressed with Mrs. Marti. She’s doing an excellent job running the kids daytime programs. Mrs. Marti keeps my daughter interested in gymnastics and eager to return to the next week’s class.
As for the Open Gym hosted… this allowed my niece and nephews the opportunity to experience gymnastics and inspired an interest in the sport. I think this is a great way to get other kids to join gymnastics. My daughter and I look forward to joining more Open Gym nights, and my husband and I are especially excited for the Parent’s Night Out.
- Thank you again, Eileen
Your influence on Alex‘s confidence is immeasurable. We want to thank you for helping and working with her so closely. We want to wish you a great summer and hope to see you again in the fall.
“For all your help and all your caring, you’re appreciated more than you know.”
- Sincerely, Eric, Nancy, Alexa and Kayla
I am very glad to be part of Gold Medal Gymnastics and to have you as my teacher.
I apologize if sometimes I’m not the best listener, but I want to be a good student.
Thank you for teaching me gymnastics!
