Gymnastics classes and programs are available for children as young as 3 months, up through adults. Programs range from recreational classes to competitive training programs for future Olympians. There are various forms of gymnastics including artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, tumbling and trampoline.

Typical costs:

  • Recreational classes for children cost about $15-$20 or more per class. Classes typically meet once or twice a week. Preschool-age classes cost slightly less than classes for school-age students. The Little Gym[1] offers classes for kids from 3 months to 12 years for an average of $14-$21 per class depending on location.
  • Classes for competitive gymnasts typically cost $150-$300 per month, depending on the number of hours gymnasts spend training, according to a survey by USA Gymnastics. An average Level 3 gymnast practices four hours per week for $160 per month. An average Level 10 gymnast pays $288 per month to practice 17.5 hours a week. West Valley Gymnastics, a national team training center in the San Francisco Bay Area, charges $350-$650 for competitive team training.
  • Summer camps vary in cost by level of difficulty and number of hours spent in the gym. A 10-week summer session class can cost $140 for one visit to the gym per week. Or a week-long intensive, overnight program can cost up to $500. Coach Bela Karolyi's summer camp[2] is open to female gymnasts age 7 and older each summer in Houston and start at $395 for a one-week session.
  • Adult tumbling and gymnastics classes are frequently available at both gyms and through parks and recreation departments for about $20 per class. Chelsea Piers in New York City has the nation's largest adult gymnastics programs and charges $19-$28 per class.

What should be included:
  • For traditional gymnastics training, use of all of the gymnastics apparatuses should be involved. For women, that includes balance beam, uneven bars, vault and floor exercise. For men, the apparatuses are vault, still rings, parallel bars, high bar, pommel horse and floor exercise.
  • Rhythmic gymnastics, which is only for women, should include training with small equipment including balls, hoops, ribbons, rope, and clubs.
  • All types of gymnastics training should include exercises to improve strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, balance and grace.
  • USA Gymnastics offers a guide[3] explaining each type.
Additional costs:
  • Leotards cost $25-$50. Other workout gear includes warmup pants, sweatpants, jackets and gym shoes. Gymnastics shoes cost $35-$60. Gym Supply[4] provides a range of apparel for men, women and children.
  • Gymnasts might need other training equipment. Beginner grips, which help gymnasts hold onto bars and rings, start at about $10. Higher-end grips cost $35-$50.
  • If a gymnast is part of a team, there might be traveling costs. Those costs are dependent on the distance traveled to competitions. Entry fees for USA Gymnastics-sanctioned competitions are typically $30-$100.
  • Balance beams range from $80 for a low-to-the-ground balance beam, to up to $400 for a competition-size 16-foot balance beam. The Beam Store[5] has beams for $250-$385 for adjustable height suede beams. Adjustable horizontal bars typically cost $250-$400. Tumbling mats can cost $50-$300.
Discounts:
  • The Little Gym[6] , which has franchises across the country, frequently offers a free introductory class.
  • Some gyms offer discounts to families signing up more than one child. Fliptastc[7] in Columbus, OH, offers family discounts and discounts for additional classes.
  • Olympiad Gymnastics Training Centers[8] in St. Louis, MO, offer family and multi-class discounts.
Shopping for gymnastics classes:
  • USA Gymnastics, the national governing board of the sport, has a searchable membership directory[9] . USA Gymnastics also lists gymnastic equipment and apparel suppliers[10] .
  • The United States Association of Independent Gymnastics Clubs[11] also lists gymnastics clubs.
