Jump! Gymnastics uses the playfulness that fun and energetic gymnastics classes offer as the secret to keeping students wanting to come back every week. Students are excited and look forward to the fantasy land they will get to explore.
Learning gymnastics skills can be tedious, cumbersome, and frustrating at times, so Jump! implements a playful theme on top of the challenges, dissolving the sometimes overwhelming challenges into a game or playful adventure.
The combination and creative integration of these two philosophies makes Jump! Austin’s most fun way to learn Gymnastics!
Jump! was opened in April of 2007 by owner, Natalie Egan. Jump! started as a preschool gymnastics school. Natalie was a gymnast since the age of 4 and began coaching gymnastics to pay her way through college. Throughout her time as a gymnast and coach, she realized that there was a gap to be filled in how gymnastics was taught to children.
Currently gymnastics instruction is limited to two very distinct styles, fun and energetic or strict and disciplined. We've created a combined curriculum offering the most beneficial aspects of each style to help your child succeed.
Our structured, curriculum driven classes embrace the concepts of skill deconstruction and progression tracking. This half of our curriculum creates the backbone of Jump!’s gymnastics classes. It provides the structure, consistency, discipline and physical motivation necessary to learn gymnastics skills quickly. It also allows your child move to new skills with confidence.
The second half of our curriculum embraces the fun, energetic playfulness that keeps children begging to come back again and again. Our theme based curriculum provides a path for their imaginations to run wild. It also dissolves the frustrating and often tedious job of learning skills into a playful adventure.

The Expansion of Jump!’s Programs
Jump! now offers more than just gymnastics. we realized that the same philosophy of offering quality, disciplined instruction presented in a fun, creative way could be applied to many other children’s programs. We hired professional, like minded directors to create curriculum and implement these programs at Jump! We now offer preschool, afterschool, camps, and birthday parties with the same standards of quality instruction, qualified staff and fun delivery that has been enjoyed for years in our gymnastics program.
