FlipFlop gymnastics was established 26 years ago by an ex springbok gymnast Anita Harrison.

After working for FlipFlop in 2001 Tanya Hudson purchased the company a year later in 2002 as Anita relocated to Canada.

After many years of hard work, FlipFlop has grown enormously and currently teaches over 2500 pupils per week.

We are now the biggest general gym club in the country. Our instructors are highly trained and make up an extremely strong team. Our programmes are extremely popular and apart from the gymnastics we have branched out into many new and exciting areas.

We as a company offer a variety of services suited for your childs needs.

I am currently Manager of Flipflop Gymnastics. I have a passion for working with kids. I started as a camp counselor in Magaliesburg when I was 15, and my passion just snowballed. I moved to London for a year to Au Pair and absolutely loved it. I think it's very important for children to have a positive environment where they can feel safe and exercise while having fun and I think our program does just that.
