A great place for kids to burn energy

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Kids are literally flipping over a super-sized center for fun in Grand Rapids. R Athletics is a gymnastics facility that also offers classes, camps, and date night drop-off. They have activities for kids from toddler age to high-level competitive teams. Kids can learn coordination, strength, flexibility, and how to maintain healthy habits.

There are separate areas for competitive athletes and more casual, fun tumbling. The staff is well trained to lead the kids in all sorts of activities.

The newly expanded R Athletics facility is holding its “Rec ‘N Rolin” open house on Tuesday, August 19, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Kids can try gymnastics and ninja fun for free! Punch cards for food and some of the bigger outdoor games are available for $5 or $10. If you sign up for fall classes, they will waive your membership fee!

R Athletics is located at 2845 Thornhills Avenue in Grand Rapids.
