Stubby Says... Welcome to MEKS!
MEKS started because parents wanted better, then grew because a coach knew she could do more for the girls we all love.
At MEKS we believe it is absolutely possible to have a facility that focuses on the whole child and not simply a gymnast ~ a place where children can grow in the love of gymnastics with state-of-the-art equipment and exceptional coaching truly focused on their individual strengths.
From JO Optional and Xcel team gymnastics to recreational, tumbling and pre-school classes, we have provided exceptional coaching and programs designed to help your children achieve their goals, have fun and be physically active.
Our home is a nearly 22,000 s/f building located in an industrial park on the south side of Anderson, just seconds away from I-69 exit 222. We're within 25 minutes of a radius including Muncie, Alexandria, Elwood, Noblesville, Ingalls, Pendleton and Lawrence. We're close to major shopping and restaurants, making it easy to drop your child off for a class and run a few errands.
We are proud to offer brand-new, competition-grade equipment, air conditioning and Madison County's only loose-foam tumbling pit.
For those parents who wish to stay, we have a full Pro Shop with supplies and apparel, snacks and drinks sold at the front desk, and a mezzanine waiting area with ample seating, a work table and free, fast Wi-Fi.
The Evolution of Stubby the Unicorn
Stubby the Unicorn was born when we wanted a mascot who would appeal to everyone, which he most certainly does! Parents and children alike all love Stubby.
He's more than just our mascot, though ~ he's the embodiment of our gymnastics philosophy: We believe anyone can do gymnastics regardless of gender, body-type or ability. There is something in this sport to benefit everyone. While gymnastics certainly teaches athleticism, strength and endurance it also teaches discipline, balance, body- and self-confidence, teamwork and personal responsibility.
So when you see Stubby, remember we are all unique. And we all can do gymnastics!
