Christina Fisher: Owner

A mother of a competing daughter all her life. I have experienced the start from taking my daughter to her first Y gymnastic lessons to more advance gymnastics lessons at AAG. I have being through all the problems that every gymnastic parent experiences practice, competitions, coaches , injuries, etc. I have tried to litigate some of those problems at this gym and make it a place for all the family to enjoy. Here at AAG we are family as our daughters and sons spend numerous hours at the gym or on the road competing. I enjoy watching all the girls and boys from Kinder bears for their first time or Level 10's with years of experience push themselves and have fun doing it.
