Since it's establishment in 1973 the Iowa Gym-Nest has demonstrated a continuous commitment to excellence in women's competitive gymnastics. Over the years Iowa Gym-Nest athletes have won numerous state, regional, and national championships. The Iowa Gym-Nest is a member of USA gymnastics and currently has approximately 150 total athletes in all of our Competitive programs. Iowa Gym-Nest prides itself on helping each athlete reach their potentional as a gymnast, and as a person. In keeping with our mission statement we have never measured success in how many medals are won at a competition. Our goal is to help develop strong, healthy, confident children through the sport of gymnastics.
