.

I attended Step Ahead Gymnastics for 6 years. In these 6 years I had taken the intermediate classes, tumbling classes, and private lesions. I decided to go the cheerleading route and all of the classes allowed me to make my Middle school cheerleading team, my High School JV cheerleading team my freshman year, Varsity Cheerleading team for the next 3 years, and soon joined the Jacksonville All Star level 4 Senior Coed team that Christy coaches. I learned skills such as back handsprings, tucks, layouts, and began to work on fulls. The All Star teams traveled to compete in many competitions during the year, and I can honestly say we always had a competitor in our category, we never competed against ourselves. All of this would have not been achieved if I hadnt had the coaching from Christy, and other fellow coaches. I know many other athletes that I had the privilege of working with went on to cheer at North Carolina State University (Large Coed, All Girl), The University of Chapel Hill (Large Coed), Elon University (Coed), High Point University (All Girl), East Carolina University (All Girl), and The University of Charlotte (All Girl). I also know many Dancers who go on to pursue dance careers attending University of the Arts in New York, and cheering on teams in college such as The University of Chapel Hill, The University of Charlotte, and North Carolina State University. When putting your child in classes, and they dont advance, it is not because of the coaches, its because the child doesnt strive for success. The coaches cannot make you want to learn a skill, the athlete themselves have to want to learn that skill. Also you cannot expect to practice once a week and learn a new skill in a month. It takes multiple times of practicing things to understand and learn a new skill. With all this being said, Step Ahead is a great facility, the coaches have to get safety certified, and have experience in the classes they are teaching.

My daughter was with StepAhead and Jacksonville AllStars from elementary, middle and high school. I have to give all the coaches props for helping give her confidence and leadership qualities. Without these qualities, she would not be

My husband and I were looking for a gym that our two children could attend. We went to both gyms that are here in jacksonville. Even though the other one was cheaper we had a really good experience with step ahead and have been there ever since. The coaches absolutely love the children and the children love them The owner is the nicest lady with years of experience. Safety IS a top priority from there mommy and me class to there elite proformance teams. They have multiple boys coaches who have taught my three year old to things some adults can't do. My daughter not only does gymnastics, she takes ballet as well. She is four and comes home saying she learned how to do a pli and grand pli. So they definitely are teaching the right techniques and teaching them the terminology. I would and do recommend Step Ahead Gymnastics to everyone!

This gym is very unsafe! The coaches are not properly trained, I asked one of the coaches I believe heather was her name how many times a year do they go to training conventions and she replied said it is not required to go. This is the first gym that i have been to were they do not send coaches to training/spotting conventions. There let out procedures are horrible. For one they have over 20 kids in one class if you can believe that. two only 1 coaches lets the kids out the back of the building, so if they happen to get distracted nobody is watching who the children are going home with. Now comments on the facility itself: the gym is small, the equipment is old and way to crowded which leads to the classes themselves. since you have over 20 kids in a class and 3 teachers the kids are broken up in 3 groups each teacher is at an event and the kids spend about 12-15 on each event taking maybe 2 turns. who on earth can possibly learn anything in that short amour of time and taking a turn or two. why waste your money on this? I highly recommend you do not go here.

I have to agree this small gym is over crowded. The children are expected to stand around and wait for it is their turn to go. When they finally get a turn the teachers do not even help them. The lobby is very small so good luck watching your child stand around. They let the children out of the back of the building, there is one teacher letting about 25 kids out at a time. I find this unsafe anyone can just take your child and the teacher would never know especially when they are talking to a parent and not paying attention to the rest of the kids leaving. The all star cheer team they have is a joke. The practice once a week and for 1/2 of the practice they sit around or they maybe tumbling while the owner and the other coaches are eating, talking on their phones, and just talking to each other. This place is horrible. I wouldn't take the chance to leave my child with them after what i have seen

Step Ahead has wonderful and nice teachers. They helped me with many things and are very knowledgeable. Step Ahead is the best gym I have gone to. The coaches know what to do and are tough. They will help strengthen you so you can do the skills better. It may have a small waiting room and be very busy, but you can do gymnastics, dance, and cheerleading at the same place.

I found this gym very busy with too many children for the unprofessional staff. The younger age children are stuffed in a class with 3 teachers that just yell at the kids while they are expected to stand in line for a long period of time for their turn. The minimum instruction is given as these children are treated like dollar bills so they can keep the gym open and concentrate on their cheer-leading team and gym team. So if you are not ready to compete don't bank on getting that way at this gym. I watched the owner giving a private lesson while on her cell phone 80% of the lesson time which costs 40$ for an hour. I was really disappointed in this gym and would never recommend it to anyone unless you are already a quality gymnast then I would recommend their team.

We have been to a few different gyms - here and out of state. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. A busy gym where instruction takes priority. Instructors are friendly and knowlegable. The owner makes this gym a success. As in every gym, they are work yearly to advance each of their teams - cheerleading, gymnastics and dance. Prices are very fair.

My children have been attending Step Ahead for 2 years now, my daughter and son. They both love it. Although the waiting area can be small, they gym is plenty big enough. I would rather space for them than for me. The have a great set up, drop off in a certain area and pick up different to avoid congestion. The staff is nothing but exceptional. The receptionist, Colleen, is professional and friendly. Ms. Christy is very much involved with lessons. Tuition is due the 1st of the month and fees are very reasonable. There is a registration fee but it includes a tshirt with their name on it. No extra fee, although they do offer leotards for sale if you would like to purchase. No pressure though. The only requirement with clothing is no jeans. That is for restrictive purposes. They are all about gymnastics and cheer. Kudos to Step Ahead! If I have misspoken for requirements and so forth, my children are in younger classes and not sure of cheer requirements. We love you Step Ahead!
