Gymnastics Palace is a Gymnastics Center, located in West Pembroke Pines and Miami Lakes, Florida, Owned and Operated by a 2 Time Gymnastics Olympian – Deyan Yordanov.

Safety and well being of our customers, students, staff and anyone involved with Gymnastics Palace has always been and still is our number one priority! Since we reopened our facility, here are the new safety rules that we are implementing:
Every child has their own zone with their own equipment!
There is no sharing space or equipment at any time!
We sanitize the whole gym before and after every class!
Coaches and staff must wear a face mask all the time!
Keep in mind, we keep our 3 bay doors open, so there is no sharing air with other people in a confined space. We believe that makes a BIG difference versus other, traditional gymnastics facilities!
Another BIG one is that we always had and will have only one class at a time!
Not to mention the BIG advantage that all the students are coached personally by the Owner, who is 2 Time Olympic Gymnast with over 23 years of Coaching Experience!
The side door on our side of the facility is open for us and only us, in order to avoid any possibility of contact with other facility users.
We request that all students be in their cars, ready to enter the facility 5 minutes prior their class starts.
Parents and/or any other spectators are not allowed in the gym at any time. If you need to talk to your coach, please call at a time when we don’t have a class. You can also text or email us.
Every class is broadcasted in real time through Zoom from several different angles, so parents that want to watch and listen to anything that is happening, can do safely from their car, home or anywhere they might be.
As always, our classes are 45 min long and we have 15 min. in between to clean and disinfect everything and welcome the next class.
All students and staff have their temperature checked with a contactless thermometer and hands sanitized upon entering the facility. Anyone with a temperature about 100.4 is not allowed to enter.
If your child is sick, please keep her/him home. We will do the same for our self and staff if any.
Masks/Face coverings are required for everyone, while entering, walking around and leaving the facility. Coaches wear the face mask all the time. It is allowed to take the face mask off, while exercising, but we let you - the parents, make that decision and tell your kids.
After entering the facilities one by one, the student goes to his/hers designated station with all of his/her belongings. That station will be the ONLY place that the student will be using for the ENTIRE class. The stations are spread out through the gym to maintain the social distancing requirement of at least 6 feet. Floor markers are set, with clear boundaries.
We have invented a new program that will allow every child to work on every station, but not on the same day. For example, if your child gets the balance beam station, she will do only balance beam (and some floor skills), all by herself for that day. Next class she takes, she will be doing another station.
This new program allows us to mix any level and age of kids in the same class. Every child does a different thing in their zone anyway. That also gives you, parents more options for class time, even when the class size is so small now!
Water fountain is closed, so every student must bring his/her own water bottle.
Every class has Maximum of 6 students to allow plenty of space for social distancing. After some time, when we know that we are ready for more, that number will gradually change. You will be notified in advance.
Due to social distancing guidelines, physical spotting will be very limited. While our goal is to maintain social distancing between students and coaches, there are times where spotting or incidental contact is necessary to keep our students safe and prevent injury. Our coaches wear gloves in order to spot safely, when necessary.
The whole gym is thoroughly disinfected and cleaned before and after each class.
At the end of class, after sanitizing hands, students promptly exit one by one through the same place they entered. Parents are required to wait in front, inside their car at the time that class ends. Please have a sign with your child’s name, visible from the gym door, so we know who is ready for pick up.
We need to make sure the students leave on time, so we can disinfect and welcome the next class, so if you are more than 5 minutes late for pick up, you will be charged $5 fee as we have to make special arrangements for your child.
Team schedule is the same as always, with the same limit of 6 gymnasts at a time. That way we have enough space even if we need to switch areas (if necessary), we can disinfect it between users and still maintain social distance.
If you are not ready to send your athlete to the gym, we still have online options for you. You can also combine both online and gym training if necessary or if you need more.
Please, understand that these rules are subject to change in order to keep up with any government and health guidelines and also to improve safety and efficiency in the gym. Please keep an eye on your email for any updates.
