Motion Gymnastics is a family owned and operated business located in Pennington.  Since 1995, coaches there have provided gymnastics, tumbling and trampoline training to all ability levels and ages. Their mission of Motion Gymnastics is to build a great foundation for life through gymnastics. According to the coaches, gymnastics enhances self-esteem and goal-setting abilities in children, helping them to become champions in life.

The Kalon Ludvigson Invitational  honors Kalon Ludvigson, the 8-time United States men’s tumbling champion. His career was derailed last summer when he suffered a severe injury while in training. Olympians, champions, friends and fans alike showed up in Salt Lake City to support Kalon and his recovery. A fund has been started to assist Ludvigson in covering medical and rehabilitation costs.
