After 4 years of my eldest 2 children attending gymnastics classes run by Shelagh and the Gym Academy, I am very sorry to be leaving; it is only that we are leaving Doha that we are saying farewell to Shelagh and her amazing team of coaches.
From the very start of our journey with Shelagh and her team, my eldest 2 children have loved every session they've attended. Their confidence and abilities and grown under the guidance of these internationally highly trained coaches. They both thoroughly enjoy their sessions and come out very hot and sweaty (so I know they've had a good hours exercise!) and enthusing about which piece of apparatus they have enjoyed the most, or mastered, that week.
For me, the Gym Academy gives the most value for money. There are many, many excellent pieces of high standard equipment provided from as far afield as France and England to ensure the children are being trained properly and on the best and the correct equipment. I can only imagine the costs involved in sourcing and importing such amazing facilities and know that Shelagh and her team don't stint on getting the best, and replacing equipment as is required.
I would like to say a very big, a very sincere, and a very heartfelt 'Thank You' to Shelagh and all at the Gym Academy.!

Thanks to Qatar Gym Academy, our daughter Euphemie has made spectacular progress in gymnastics. After only 18 months she has managed to win a number of medals in regional competitions. The staff at Gym Academy are very committed, serious and skillful while encouraging the gymnasts to reach their full potential in a safe environment.!

Sending my daughter to Doha Gymnastics Academy has been the best decision I have made since moving to Doha. The coaches at club are both professional and caring; they train the children to the highest level while providing a nurturing environment that encourages the children’s development and confidence. My daughter has grown as a person not just physically but also as an individual since joining the club, which has taught her so much about team work, commitment and perseverance. The training is intense but the coaches also make it fun; the children obviously enjoy being part of the club or they would not excel to the levels that they regularly achieve at local and regional competitions. I would strongly recommend any parents looking for a gymnastics club for their children in Qatar to consider Doha Gymnastics Academy.!
