Our Mission & Story

After 25 years of nurturing Schafer Gymnastics, we have built our dream, and it’s all about you and your child.

We believe that every child can develop a love of physical fitness. Every child can experience the joy of setting and accomplishing their goals. And every child can develop a ‘can do’ attitude—when they are taught by nurturing, positive and experienced adults.
