Tucked just behind Tesco in Gorton is Manchester Regional Gymnastics Centre. Boasting first-rate gymnastics equipment and training facilities, the centre offers classes for all ages, abilities and fitness levels.

The sessions are delivered by qualified British Gymnastics Coaches and while the centre has a great tradition of producing champion gymnasts, its main endeavour is to provide a firm grounding in gymnastics and fitness, as a means of promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Children aged 4 and up are able to start their journey into gymnastics in the foundation class. Offering a well-balanced introduction to fitness, budding gymnasts can then move through the lessons as they grow older, and at their own pace. The centre also provides special Gym Tots classes which are designed for ages 18 months to 4 years.
