Established in 1973 as a gymnastics school, Iowa Gym-Nest has become a full service sports facility for Gymnastics, Taekwon-Do, C.O.R.S.E. Fitness, C.O.R.S.E. Spectrum, Sports & Adventure Camps, Youth Fitness, Homeschool Fitness and Play Groups. We also offer many drop-in programs, No School Day Camps, and fantastic Birthday Parties! Our gymnastics programs begin with children 12 months of age and include programs for all ability levels, from those with special needs to those with exceptional ability.
We are one of Iowa’s largest gymnastics schools with over twelve hundred students in two locations that together total over 23,000 square feet. Both locations offer state of the art equipment including in-ground trampolines and landing pits for safe learning. Our preschool gyms feature specialized equipment for smaller children. The martial arts room located at our Coralville location features wall-to-wall matting and full length mirrors. Both of our facilities are fully air-conditioned. Our lobbies provide viewing areas of the gyms and have free Wi-Fi.
IGN is owned by Paige and Brian Roth. Paige has been involved with gymnastics since the age of 2 and has been teaching since she was 12. She has called IGN home since her freshman year of college in 1990. It is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of Paige's to own Iowa Gym-Nest. Brian is a CPA who manages the business side of IGN. Both Brian and Paige are dedicated to upholding the strong values of integrity, honesty, and fairness that have been the foundation upon which IGN has stood for the past 40 years.
Iowa Gym-Nest currently employs over forty instructors. These instructors are chosen based on knowledge, experience, maturity, and a demonstrated ability to work with children in a positive, caring manner. Regardless of previous experience, all instructors receive extensive training, including certification through USA Gymnastics University in Safety, First Aid, CPR, and gymnastics instruction.
It is our mission to develop happy, healthy, confident children by providing the best sports instruction available. The time children spend in our programs should be the highlight of their day! If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with our program we will refund your tuition.
