We’re back in the gym! See our full list of classes below.
Kim’s Gym, proud partner of Shalom Austin, was started by Kim Lindauer in March of 2002 based on the philosophy that all children, no matter what skill level, should have an opportunity to excel in gymnastics without having to give up their childhood. Kim’s Gym is dedicated to creating a fun, upbeat, safe environment which in turn helps the kids improve and succeed.

At Kim’s Gym, we are more than just gymnastics. We are working to have a lasting influence that teaches kids to be caring, thoughtful, kind, and giving. There are multiple aspects of our community outreach program, Kim’s Gym Cares.
