North County Gymnastics & The Gyminny Kids – an educational gymnastics facility for individuals age 15 mon. to adults – focuses on the sport, without the competitive push so all can excel at their own pace. But it’s the size and extensive background of the staff that impresses many students.

Owned and operated by Liz Mullarkey and Rob Bryson since 1986, Gyminny Kids strives to bring fitness to all ages in a fun and exciting atmosphere. From preschool age to adult gymnastics, camps, birthday parties, acro and cheerleading classes, and their newest program – Motion Evolution – Gyminny Kids has something for everyone. And, according to Mullarkey, it’s the caring, talented, friendly staff with an extensive background that impresses many students and parents.

“We range from an Asian National Champion to an instructor whose certifications are from his home country (England), to 20-somethings, former high school/collegiate gymnasts, and high school coaches,” Mullarkey said. “We have instructors coached by Olympic coaches, who are personal trainers, who have gymnastics judging certifications – and who were former Gyminny Kids students themselves.”

Mullarkey said Gyminny Kids’ experienced 18-member staff works off specific curriculums and lesson plans at all levels, including toddlers. “They keep track in their notebooks each hour relative to each child’s progress so they can move to the next level as needed,” she said.

Another integral part of the curriculum is following the Character Counts Program, also used by Poway Unified School District. “We pride ourselves in being designated as the only private Children’s Gold Medal Activity Center through the program in San Diego County,” said Mullarkey.

Gyminny Kids is located at 17022 Camino San Bernardo in 4S Ranch. For more information call 858-451-0201, email, or visit
