Santa brought a little something extra last year to Everest Gymnastics students in the form of a new location. Everest North features 32,000 feet of floor space and an expansive selection of USAG Certified Equipment. The recreation and training facility officially opened its doors in December and began the new year with a full load of classes.
Everest North took over an empty building, which used to be an ice skating rink, and has transformed this space into a world-class gymnastics center. Everest Gymnastics head coach and co-founder Yiwen Chen says this building was in nearly new condition and already had many features needed for gymnastics. First, she explains, it’s wide-open and constructed in a way that eliminates the need for obstructive supports. Its high ceiling and exceptional lighting were also determining factors. Further, there is plenty of room for changing facilities and offices.
Similar to the Huntersville location, Everest North features everything a budding gymnast will need to master basic and advanced skills. Everest Gymnastics coaches report that the 40-foot in-ground tumble track, dual trampolines, and Olympic-sized spring floors are ideal for athletes from toddler to teen.
Both Everest Gymnastics location will offer recreational classes and host events throughout the year. Due to popular demand, Everest North has also added a homeschool class for the 2019 season.
Coach Chen and Coach Han are excited for the future of Everest Gymnastics and praise the hard work of the school’s instructors and administrative staff. Without them, the coaches assert, this level of growth may not have been possible.
Everest Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive gymnastics training centers in the eastern US and has been a US National Team Training Center since 2015. The new Cornelius location will focus primarily on the recreational gymnastics for the time being.
