It's smart to completely disregard these "ex-coach" comments below, as he was a great cause of the gym's strife. (message to "ex-coach": Don't you have anything better to do than to check this page every day and reply in order to bring the place down?)

Vernon Lee is really starting to get back on its feet. They have an extremely caring and nurturing staff who really take each student personally. I highly recommend checking it out! :)

I am a current coach at Vernon Lee gymnastics. Before moving to California to coach for this gym I ran a successful program for ten years in Michigan. I take pride in my work as a coach and have very high standards for myself. I have watched this gym go through some ups and downs. I am confident in saying this gym is on the UP. We have recently hired some great staff who really care about the kids and give 100 percent each day. The team kids are happy and confident and progressing quickly. The class program is growing by word of mouth and I have never been happier at this gym. Myself and the staff I work with put safety and the individual well being of each child first. We have worked hard to create a positive atmosphere where the kids learn more than "just gymnastics". I am proud of what we do and hope you will take the time to see our gym in action :)

What a warm, welcoming and inclusive place. One of the few gymnastics academies that honors the original mission of the sport that everyone can exceed his or her potential an empowerment so lacking in our hypercompetitive sports

My 11 year old son loves his gymnastics class at Vernon Lee.The coaching staff is encouraging yet firm enough to handle a class of boys.It is a great place for boys to burn some of this extra energy.

I have 3 children in classes at Vernon Lee and have been very pleased with the quality of instruction and personal attention given. The coaches are easy to communicate with and whenever I had questions or concerns I was always listened to and the issues addressed. The gym works hard at keeping a low student/teacher ratio which has benefitted my children greatly.

Great family atmosphere! Vernon Lee Gym has provided my daughter with countless positive learning opportunities for over 15 years. She started at the gym when she was young and entered competitions in addition to participating in the afterschool programs. Not only did she develop the physical skills but she gained confidence and self dicipline in other areas of her life as well. The Director, Luzia, goes out of her way to create positive experiences for the students. My daughter loved the gym so much she became a coach throughout college. If you are looking for a gym that is more than just a gym but is an extended family as well this is the place!

As a parent of a gymnast, Vernon Lee really supports the children and wants them to do their best while still having fun. They have a wonderful recreational program and Luzia (the director) is a great coach and person. She will work with you and listen to your personal situation. I think she is exceptional with the little kids. Vernon Lee has gone through a rough patch with its coaching staff, but it is working through it while putting the kids first. There are opportunities for all children at Vernon Lee.

This gym has had some ups and downs...unfortunately they have gone through some staff changes in the past few years which is always hard. HOwever, the current environment the staff has created in the gym has resulted in happier keids and more productive practices. The Rec classes seem to be growing and the team kids are improving. The staff is working hard to create a positive environment where each kid can reach their true potential.

The situation at this gym is.. complex.

Yes, the girls have been through major coaching changes in the past years, but they are taking it well. The owners are really doing their best to turn the situation around. The compulsory girls are really showing promise!

Although some of the optional girls suffered as a result of coaches who would come and go, most gyms go through times like these. It's definitely going through a transition period.

This gym is very economical in these times!

The coaches and staff at Vernon Lee care about kids, and it shows. Our daughter was bored with gymnastics and wanted to quit entirely after our experience in another local gym. Ever since we found Vernon Lee, she has been motivated and appropriately challenged. She is now in the team, and doing well. She loves gymnastics, and does not want to quit despite many other demands on her time. The tuition is very reasonable, and the gym has a very personal touch. All gyms have their pros and cons, but Vernon Lee gets my five stars for the things that matter. It has truly become "the right gym" for us.

The gym is conveniently located near Paseo Colorado and Old Town. The prices are reasonable compared to other gyms in the area.

Vernon Lee was not convenient for us to drive to, but we did make the trip as it is one of the most caring gyms in the area. The staff loves their job and is fast to be helpful...and thoughtful. They teach with good progressions that are very safe.

My daughters and son have all taken classes here since early childhood, and one has participated as a team member. We have a lot of special needs in the family and the head coach really cares about the kids and has always been a great help for them to overcome difficulties and do their best. Highly recommended.

Terrible situation in this gym, the policy is yell, yell, yell. Equipment is dated and some is broken. Even with encouragement, owner refuses to update. Lighting is not optmal for type of sport, hygiene a major problem in this gym. Student coaches frequently used. High turnover of coaches. No real requirement to get on team other than "being able to do the trick". History of losing serious gymnasts. Team does poorly in competition.

Dirty, unsafe, old equipment, rude and unqualified staff! The owners method of coaching is to SCREAM from one end of the gym to the other at the children, to intimidate them, demean and demoralize them, and as if that were not bad enough, then she laughs at them.

Pros: there are none

Cons: too many to list
