When you think about Twister Gymnastics, you think: COMMUNITY. And during times like these, community is more important than ever…as long as it’s at a safe distance. 🙂 That’s why we’re so excited to announce that Twister Gymnastics is virtual! Plus, we have an update on what they’re doing to keep their staff safe and their members moving. Here’s the scoop…
What is Twisters (as a business) up to during this time?
Twisters paused operations as of Monday, March 16 (2020). Since then, and until March 24, Twisters had the gyms “open” with limited staff present for the purpose of recording content for our members, cleaning/maintenance and administrative duties.
The gyms were completely disinfected top-to-bottom. All common areas, restrooms, equipment and mats were sanitized. Carpets were vacuumed and deep cleaned. Storage areas were cleaned and re-organized and much more. Twister Gymnastics is virtual, so we are now working completely remotely and recording content/keeping in touch with our members from home. This is where it is safest and most socially responsible for us to be.
*During all of this, Twisters continues to pay and offer benefits to our valued staff without requiring them to use vacation or sick time.*
MBMom note: LOVE IT!
Since Twister Gymnastics is virtual, what can the South Florida community expect during your Facebook and Instagram Live content and tutorials that you recently announced on social media?
Our Twisters staff is working feverishly behind the scenes to create some really fun, meaningful and beneficial content for our families and followers! We’ve had countless meetings and now a week plus of fun creating and entertaining with our staff and coaches. Our focus throughout all of this is to stick to our core values, which at Twisters is, “helping to develop Happy, Healthy, responsible kids.”
We’re offering videos on a multitude of topics, such as flexibility, conditioning, yoga, preschool movement, coordination, mental health and well-being, nutrition, at-home games and more.

How is Twisters ensuring that its members are being taken care of during this time?
During this time, Twisters members accounts are on hold while operations are paused. We are automatically adding make-up days to every member’s account for the duration of this pause. We will personally handle the scheduling of all individual makeups and other administrative challenges once we resume operations.
Meanwhile, we are maintaining relationships with our Twisters families outside of the gym with:
- Exclusive, members-only content
- Social media outreach
- Our coaches are even placing calls to our members to check in on our families and students to say hello on an individual basis
- Team coaches are communicating with gymnasts via email and with live Zoom video meetings
- Team gymnasts are being given at-home workouts in addition to nutritional resources and continuing access to Twisters’ on-staff Sports-psychologist, Dr. Christine Hiler
As a mom, I couldn’t be prouder of a local business. This makes my heart swell! Keep up the good work…and content Twisters!
