Gymnastic World

Gymnastic World of Fort Myers has been in buisness for over 40 years. Over the past 40 years our facility has been a huge part of thousands of families lives. We look at our customers not just as a customer but as family. Chris Brooks has been the sole owner of Gymnastic World for it's entire existance. She has always been the first person to give back and donate to as many charities as possible every year. She has helped raise money for numerous events such as the victims of Orlando, numerous local school funds and community projects. On August 26th our building started taking on water from the tropical storm caused by Hurricane Harvey. By Sunday the water was up to our knees throughout the entire building. At that moment walking in, everything looked like a loss. We asked ourselves, where do we start? As the water receded our hopes grew stronger. Our amazing staff stepped in and we got to work. We are so blessed to have such an awesome community to stand behind us. The amount of messages we have recieved has been overwhelming. Many of our friends and families have asked how they can help so we set up this Go Fund Me account. As many of you know our infamous foam pit was a complete loss. Each piece of foam is $1.00 per block. To fill our pit takes 15,000 blocks! For just $1.00 you can know that one of those blocks in the pit is your contribution and the "building blocks" to getting Gymnastic World Fort Myers back on it's feet. We cannot wait to re-open and see all of our kids and families again soon. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all the love, support, and strength you have given us. We will come back BETTER THAN EVER, STRONGER TOGETHER. One Block at a time!
