I am also a dissatisfied parent. My daughter has been taking classes at FGC for years. Last year their lack of organization and communication was a problem. This year it is out of control. Trying to get reliable information is almost impossible. You will get a different answer from each person at the front desk. I pulled my daughter out after years of lessons and found a new gym for her. It's sad that we have to leave but the level of confusion was too much for me. Customer service has gone out the window at FGC. Do your child and yourself a favor and go to a different gym from the beginning.

I'm not one for writing reviews, but after the lengthy one given here with one star, I needed to be heard. My kids have been going to FGC for several years now, and I have always found the organization to be very professional. MANY girls start out at FGC and not only win awards, but scholarships from universities in gymnastics. The owners, teachers, and coaches put the kids first, sometimes at the detriment of other more visually obvious things, like updated computer equipment or soap dispensers in the girl's bathroom, but that's as it should be. Everything a teacher or coach does with a child is geared toward, not only future gymnastics moves, but in a gentle and safe way, showing a child how their body works, using their body weight in an age-appropriate way to build strength, stamina and mental ability. And the kids love it! I have never heard of a kid not liking the classes, and I listen to what other parents tell me because I'm a parent sitting up there waiting for my kid to finish class just like they are. I have no affiliation with FGC other than being a paying customer. The previous reviewer is correct that there is usually no one behind the desk on Saturdays, but I don't see a problem with that. They have "meets" on Saturdays and most of the staff are linked to those meets in some way. It's a small price given what a child receives in return. I would definitely recommend FGC to anyone I know.
