About Us

TNT Gymnastics LLC is a USA Gymnastics Club located in Johnstown, PA. TNT offers programs for both girls and boys including gymnastics, aerobics and tumbling. Over the years, the TNT Gymnastics club has coached some of the greatest athletes in the Johnstown and the surrounding area. Each year, many of our gymnasts qualify for their State Championship competition where they travel to compete against all gymnasts in the state of Pennsylvania. Our Optional gymnasts have also qualified for the State , Regional (against 6 States: athlete members throughout Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia). We have also had many girls who have gotten college scholarships: Ursinus College for gymnastics and St. Frances for Track. We are proud of our gymnasts and continue to produce champions each year!

Our Mission

Our mission at TNT is to prepare our students for a lifetime of success by developing their dreams and talents by building their spirit through the teaching of gymnastics by using positive reinforcement and encouragement delivered by a knowledgeable, well-trained staff to become healthy, successful athletes. We have state, regional and National qualifiers. One of our gymnasts has received a Washington & Jefferson Scholarship for Diving.

1 Hour per Week

(Beginner Level) is best suited for children ages 6+ who have never experienced gymnastics before. This class teaches the fundamentals of beginning gymnastics on the Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor Exercise. This is the beginning of the flexibility and strength training.

Poppers - Level 1

2 Hours per Week

Level 1 is best suited for children who have taken the Beginner Class and are ready for more in-depth instruction on all the gymnastics equipment with flexibility and strength training. If your child has had some experience, call the office for a scheduled testing time.

Bottle Rockets - Level 2

Non-Competitive Level 2 is best suited for gymnasts who have progressed through Beginners and Level 1. This is the introduction to learning gymnastics routines. This is still recreational, but for children with the potential for competition and enjoyment of gymnastics.

Level 2

Introduction to competition gymnastics. Gymnasts will learn routines on all events and compete locally in. Gymnasts will travel to Altoona, Everett, Latrobe and Pittsburgh for competitions. Not all competitions are required, but are a lot of fun and encouraged!

Level 3-5

Competitive Gymnasts are invited to compete throughout the State. Must receive a qualifying score to qualify for States. As the gymnasts rise in level and difficulty, their practice time at the gym will increase to allow for them to master the more complicated skills required for the higher level along with their commitment to the sport of gymnastics.

Level 6-10, Xcel

TNT Gymnastics is extremely proud of all its gymnasts ... none more than those who have aspired to be the best gymnast they can be by committing to compete in Levels 3 through 10 in gymnastics.

The Gymnasts in Levels 6 - 10 and Xcel have made a serious commitment to the sport of gymnastics. These gymnasts are at the gym almost every day to practice their skills and prepare for the next competition. We encourage and support our gymnasts and become their second family .... spending anywhere from 9 to 15 hours a week with these serious gymnasts.

Boys Gymnastic Program

TNT Gymnastics has a very active boys gymnastics program. Boys learn recreational gymnastics on the boys equipment. This is a great foundation for other sports like wrestling, hockey, soccer, etc. The TNT Boys program keeps them in great physical condition and increases their muscular coordination.

Advanced Boys: This is for the more advanced boy gymnasts. We are looking forward to competition soon!!!

Home School Program

TNT Gymnastics understands that students who are home-schooled need an outlet! Let your student expend some energy, while exercising on safe equipment close to home by taking advantage of the Home School Program at TNT. Home-schooled children (up to age 14) are welcome at the gym on Fridays from 2 pm - 3 pm. Please register using the TNT Gymnastics form. Rates are $5 per hour with a $20 annual registration fee.

45 Minutes per Week

Mom & Tot Program introduces toddlers age 18 months to 3 years old to gymnastics through song, dance, and group activities with Mom or Dad. The program's instructor guides Moms & Tots to basic gymnastic movements encouraging each child's participation and celebrating milestones. This program is instrumental in developing the toddler's gross motor skills, balance, and self-confidence. Class times are available both during the daytime and afternoons to accommodate both the stay-at-home Mom/Dad and the working Mom/Dad's busy schedule.


1 Hour per Week

Pre-School Program is for ages 3-5. This program builds on the principles established in the Mom & Tot Program by encouraging the preschooler to try more activities and actions without Mom. Children build self-confidence, motor skills like balance, their sense of accomplishment and also learn to follow directions -- all important skills for upcoming school and beyond! Completion of the Mom & Tot Program is not a prerequisite for enrollment in the Pre-School Program. Children should come dressed in a one piece leotard; long haired tied back, no jewelry, belts or skirts for safety reasons. Mom/Dad are encouraged to watch from our bleachers.
