MAG History

Michigan Academy of Gymnastics has become known throughout the gymnastics community as a quality training facility for the highly competitive team program as well as providing outstanding programs in the developmental and recreational programs for physical education. Michigan Academy of Gymnastics has outgrown two facilities in 30+ years! Our program was incorporated in August 1978 and our first gym was opened in Garden City o­n October 1, 1978. Our second gym opened in Westland o­n Hix Road in December of 1986. Our present gym opened in June of 1994, next to our previous gym. The Westland gym has grown into a complete modern training center for boys and girls gymnastics with the ability to host high level regional training camps and clinics.


Michigan Academy branched out with an additional gym in Ann Arbor. Michigan Academy of Gymnastics purchased Not Just Gymnastics in Ann Arbor in 1989. Michigan Academy has promoted the same philosophy in the Ann Arbor facility, as in the Westland gym. The staff’s of both gyms receive the same training. Our goal with both of the gyms is to promote continuity and working together for a common purpose. The competitive teams of Michigan Academy of Gymnastics have won numerous team and individual awards.
