Gymnastics World Inc. started in 1978 under the name of Gymnastics Center of Tucson and became incorporated a few years later.
With over 60,000 students, facilities have operated in in Northwest Tucson, Central Tucson and East Tucson. Owners, Yoichi Tomita and Don Gutzler, were partners for over 40 years! Yoichi has been an Olympic coach in Seoul, Korea and in Sydney, Australia and continues to own and operate the Central location. Don coached Olympians Kurt Thomas (Montreal '76) and Kerry Strug (Barcelona '92 and Atlanta '96). Don primarily operated the Northwest location. After 40 years in the industry, Don retired in 2018!
Gymnastics World Northwest was adopted by Deanna & Emily Brost and rebranded in October 2018 as FLEX GYMNASTICS!
Our move to our exciting, new, upgraded, expanded facility will allow us to provide a more developed gymnastics program for all ages and skill levels!
Our program for age specific groups tests progressive skills to enhance learning. We maintain a low coach to gymnast ratio so students can achieve their very best.
We have had state champions every year since we started competing in 1979.
After two decades growing our love of the sport with Gymnastics World, we hope to continue Don's legacy.
Join us for another 40 great years!
