I am now going to start diving for the University Of Florida after having to retire from gymnastics. The past few weeks I have sat back and reflected on a lot of things and people who have helped me through this journey to get me where I am today. I would have to say that my move to TBT and being coached/mentored by you both has been one of the most positive impacts on me in my life. The memories and life lessons you both(and the whole TBT family) taught me are one of a kind. The drive, motivation, and dedication that was instilled in me at a young age has got me where I am today. I look back with such gratefulness that I had the opportunity for you both to be a part of my life. Words cannot express how thankful I am for the both of you! I have nothing but positive things to say about you guys and your program! I actually referred my friend’s daughter to TBT with a great recommendation. Anyways, I hope all is well for the both of you. Thanks again for everything you both have done for me to get me where I am today. WIthout you guys, none of this would of been possible. You are truly great people.”
My daughter has been at TBT for two and a half years. She loves it here and has become a much better gymnast. Last year she was a Level 5 State All-Around Champion and this year she took 2nd place at State for Level 6. The coaches at TBT are very detail oriented and professional. Having said that, it is evident that they love the girls and have taken the time and care to get to know and understand each girl. I totally trust each coach and his or her judgment concerning my child. As far as my daughter is concerned, the discipline my daughter has learned here has followed her into school where she’s been getting straight A’s since TBT’s influence in her life.”
Our three daughters have been taking classes at TBT since they were 2 years old. They love their classes and coaches and look forward to going each week. The facilities are great and offer a wide variety of classes for all ages and levels. The coaches really get to know their students and guide the them to their maximum potential. We would recommend TBT to everyone!
I often say that Tampa Bay Turners is our children’s second home because they both have been TBT members since they were 7 months old.
My daughter and son have equally participated in TBT’s swim program, Mommy and Me Gymnastics, Competitive Gymnastics, Tiny Turners Camp, Summer Camp, Birthday Party’s by TBT and Pre-School open gym.
There are so many benefits that my children have received from their gymnastics training at TBT. For instance, they have learned coordination, body awareness, balance, self-confidence and discipline. Furthermore, my daughter whom is more cautious than my son has learned that she doesn’t have to be fearful of a challenging tasks. Instead, she has learned that if she practices an exercise she can learn to master it.
Similarly, the benefits of their swimming program have been just as awarding. Both my children were swimming and trained in pool safety by time they reached the age of 1. When living in Florida, is there any physical activity more important than a child learning to swim?
I can not express how much my family has gained from being apart of Tampa Bay Turner’s programs. We truly enjoy being apart of the TBT family.”

Colleen, you will forever hold a special in Emily’s heart. She loves you very much. I am very grateful for all that you have done for her. You care for her as a child and not just a gymnast. No gym will ever compete with TBT in our hearts. The environment that you and Brad have created truly encourages and uplifts the girls. TBT is irreplaceable.”
