Impact Gymnastics Academy in North Central Phoenix has expanded its facility and offerings to bring more options and variety to the area. Located at 7812 N. 12th Street, the gym owned by Samantha Baltierrez and Maria Lawrence has been in business since 2015. It was originally 10,000 square-feet, but has more than doubled in size with the addition of 14,000 square-feet, which includes a new Ninja Zone area.

While Impact Gymnastics has provided programs to students at all levels, ages and abilities for years, they recently started to offer a unique program called Ninja Zone. Designed to help children redirect their energy while exercising their minds, building character and confidence, and cultivating discipline, Ninja Zone is responding to consumer demands for effective and positive children’s activities.

“The Ninja Zone program is a remarkable opportunity to guide students and teach them skills necessary to reach their goals, plus it helps build confidence and learn productive coping methods to face any challenge in life,” said co-owner Maria Lawrence. “Through this program, parents watch their children succeed and have fun while knowing their physical, mental, and emotional needs are being met.”

Ninja Zone is offered primarily to boys ages 3-11 however, there are a few co-ed classes available. To view the Ninja Zone schedule and other class schedules, click HERE.

This month, Impact Gymnastics will offer a winter break camp. Dec. 27-29 and Jan. 3-5, kids will have fun, be active and learn new tumbling skills from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This is a great alternative to kids staring at TVs and iPads during the extended school break.
