FGTC was reestablished in April of 2007 to become one of Florida’s elite gyms. Under the new management, FGTC has flourished. We offer quality gymnastics classes for both recreational and competitive gymnasts. With over 75 years of combined gymnastics experience, our coaches are all safety certified and professional members of USA Gymnastics, the sole governing body of gymnastics in the USA.
Our program director/owner, Norlan Perez was selected to attend the Jr. National Gymnastics School in Havana, Cuba, Martires de Barbados. Upon coming to the USA, he continued training and became an Elite Level gymnast. This intensive training lifestyle instilled in him a love for the sport, and inspired him to dedicate his life to the passing this tradition of excellence to the next generation of gymnasts. Prior to FGTC, he established various well-known and respected gymnastics and cheerleading facilities most notably, Miami Artistic, and Top Gun. As a gymnastics coach, he was a 3 time recipient of the Florida Coach of the Year Award for men’s gymnastics. Now as program director/owner of FGTC, he has reestablished a program where the child’s self-esteem, mental and physical abilities are developed and much success has followed.
Our administrative director/owner Abby Perez, brings with her many years of teaching experience. As a State of Florida Certified teacher in Elementary Education, Exceptional Student Education and Gifted Education, she ensures that the emotional and mental, as well as physical needs of each unique child have been met. Her love of children and understanding of the correlation between a child’s intellectual and physical development are the building blocks of FGTC’s philosophy. In addition, Abby Perez was the parent of a gymnast. She helps guide the parents through the process of development in each phase and level of gymnastics not only through her experience as an educator, but as a mother of a competitive gymnast herself. Abby also served as treasurer for the Florida USA Men’s Gymnastics organization.
