Hi-NRG Gymnastix calls itself “The Confidence Building Gym” for a good reason. According to owner Paul Battaglia, the words “fun” and “productive” are woven into every lesson with the goal of encouraging each student to learn new skills.
“We build confidence by demonstrating that everything is achievable, and each student is capable of more than they may believe,” Paul said. He added, “We’re part of the village that raises the child.”
After opening his first gym at the age of 23, Paul has amassed 37 years of gymnastics experience and 33 years of experience as a gymnastics coach. Paul created Hi-NRG to provide students, from 15 months of age to 18 years old, with productive classes that can help safely increase flexibility, agility, coordination and much more.
Classes for girls and boys occur every week and include offerings such as after school gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, ninja obstacle training, preschool gymnastics, silks [aerial acrobatics] and even trampoline. Hi-NRG also offers a private lesson academy and is a USAG [USA Gymnastics] member that offers competitive programs in each category.
Students can pursue recreational and competitive interest all in a safe environment under the guidance of skilled coaches.
The new O’Fallon facility, opening Feb. 3, 2020, is 5,000 square feet and will offer many competitive programs for all ages. Another upcoming gym in Lake Saint Louis will feature a 9,000-square foot- space with a full-size cheer floor.
According to Paul, there will be five Hi-NRG Gymnastix gyms open by June 2020, with a sixth gym on the horizon in 2021.
“We’ve had parents tell us, ‘I think my child has learned more here in the past month than they have longer at anywhere else,’” Paul said.
