SPOKANE GYMNASTICS HISTORY
Spokane Elite Gymnastics was in business for over 30 years, with multiple owners in several different Valley locations. In August 1999, Seattle Gymnastics Academy, Inc. bought Spokane Elite Gymnastics, and moved it to the Broadway location.
In June 2007, Nadine Burgess was promoted to manage Spokane Elite Gymnastics and along with the support of an incredible staff of coaches, were successful in transforming Spokane Elite Gymnastics to become the Inland Northwest’s premier gym offering unparalleled preschool, instructional and competitive programs.
This growth continued until Spring of 2010, when the owner of Seattle Gymnastics Academy opted to focus on his four gyms in Seattle. He provided the opportunity for the staff at Spokane Elite Gymnastics to buy the business and Nadine Burgess, the current owner, started a new corporation and changed the name to “Spokane Gymnastics” in conjunction with the new ownership effective July 1, 2010. All new equipment was purchased and installed in June and July of 2010.
In February 2011, Spokane Gymnastics expanded by leasing an additional 4,000 square feet adjacent to the Broadway facility, bringing the total square footage of the facility 11,000 square feet.
Expansion continued and September of 2013 we purchased a 30,000 square foot facility only a couple miles east of the Broadway location. Our new gym is referred to as “Spokane Gymnastics Argonne Village” and we transitioned all our programs to our new facility effective September 2014.
We continue with this positive direction and focus on both instructional and competitive gymnastics. We are excited to be able to provide additional classes and programs, but beyond quantity, our focus is on a quality experience for everyone who choses our program.
Spokane Gymnastics has built an excellent reputation for producing high quality competitive gymnasts while offering a excellent instructional program in a fun and supportive environment. We strive to balance teaching proper gymnastics techniques along with keeping gymnastics fun!
OUR EFFORTS TO CREATE A NUT-FREE ZONE
We have many students in our program who have SEVERE and LIFE-THREATENING peanut allergies. Please do not bring any products containing nuts into our facility. Thank you for your consideration; we appreciate your cooperation so we can do everything possible to provide a safe environment for everyone who enters our facility. If you or your child has any medical conditions that we need to be aware of to be extra vigilant in protecting them, please contact the service desk or discuss directly with your coach. Please be aware that while we make every effort to provide a nut-free zone, we cannot guarantee our success since we have many children, parents and visitors enter our facility who may not be aware of our policy.

We operate our programs at Spokane Gymnastics Argonne Village. We are proud to provide safe and CLEAN gyms with well-maintained equipment!
Spokane Gymnastics has live mascots! It began in June of 2009 when KC was adopted through Spokane Valley SCRAPS as a very young pup. Her adoption paperwork indicates that she is an Australian Shepard – Blue Heeler mix but it is suspected by many that she actually has some German Shepard and Chow in her heritage. KC is a sweetheart who typically is very mellow and loves having her belly rubbed by all the kids. She grew up at Spokane Gymnastics and has been spoiled as a “gym dog”.
KC remains behind the service desk where she is contained by a gate and spend a lot of her time sleeping. KC goes home with Coach Nadine each night and loves being Spokane Gymnastic’s mascot!
In October of 2013, we adopted Jemma, a two month old German Shepard and Border Collie mix, from “Power of the Paw” rescue in Idaho.
