New floor, Same Mission


We got a new floor last week, and while I am elated for the blessing God has given us and it is absolutely beautiful, new, and clean, I can't help but be a little nostalgic about saying goodby to our old floor that's been in our gym since we moved into this building 25 plus years ago. I thought about watching routines on it as a kid, and how much sweat has been on it ( i know kind of gross lol ). How many tears have been cried on it, and how much excitement has poured out while standing on it. It was such a bittersweet moment. How many first steps have been taken on it, and kids who learned to crawl on it. I thought about how many kids have done farewell solos on it, and how many times Ellen and I have laid down on it together, in a quiet gym after a long week and spoken our blessings out loud to one another. It was so bittersweet.


We got a new floor last week and I had to remind myself that it wasn’t the building or the equipment that made up our mission. It was the hearts of our staff. The love of our parents. The hard work of our athletes. That more sweat will happen on the new carpet, more tears of both defeat and success will be shed, and more memories will be made. And for that, I am so grateful. I am grateful that no matter what equipment comes in and out of our gym, the mission remains the same that it was on day one all those years ago. To love God’s Children, to be a positive influence in their lives, and to teach them the hard lessons they will use to be successful in life through a sport we so deeply love. New floor, same mission.

"When my youngest daughter started the gymnastics program at Moseley’s Gymnastics at the age of 9, she yearned to belong in a sport of some activity of her own.  Being the youngest sibling, she often just followed in the shadow of her older sister just participated in dance and softball.  She was just expected to be like her older sister.  Even though she also excelled in all the same sports and activities, she still wanted to do something that was just “hers”.  She wanted her own thing to do.

Moseley’s Gymnastics offered a free class to try.  We signed her up and she was immediately hooked.  She excelled through the levels. She was offered a chance to compete on Team Lazer and that is when she truly began to blossom.  Her self-confidence began to build and she became a very strong independent young woman.  Not only did her gymnastic skills grow, but she began to build lifelong work ethic skills, Christian based values, integrity and goal setting skills that are also traits of strong leaders that I could see she was becoming.

After only a few short 7 years, these leadership skills have enabled her become a team leader, a coach, and a person who the younger gymnasts truly look up to and admire.

As a parent I would love to take the credit for creating such a wonder young adult, but in reality I had very little to do with it.  Alicyn is a product of the program at Moseley Gymnastics. Without the values they instilled in her, she would not be the successful college student, employee, or leader that she is.  I owe them many thanks"

"My daughter started going to Moseley’s Gymnastics at the age of 3, for 10 years.  This program taught my daughter much more than gymnastics. She learned skills like:  strength, mental toughness, self-confidence, focus, goal setting, time-management, and how to be coachable.  I have seen her and  many of her gym sisters use these skills to become amazing young ladies."

"I have 2 daughters who have been involved with Moseley’s gymnastics and a total of about 20 years and it was the best decision I could have made to enroll them there. Our experience over the years at Moseley‘s has been very positive the impact has carried out into their young adulthood.The coaches emphasize setting goals work ethic and determination which they will Utilize as life skills in the future. I would highly recommend putting your children in to gymnastics at Moseley’s you will see the positive impact as your child grows I sure did!!"
