How SGA got started

Joey Newport opened Sterling Gymnastics Academy in 2015. He has been involved in the sport since he was 8 years old, and it has been his mission to create an environment for children that is both positive and motivated. Over the years, there have been numerous upgrades/additions/renovations at the Sterling Heights location. What started off as a 12,000sqft establishment near 18 mile and Mound Rd, is now a 21,000sqft gymnastics club designed for children of all levels. After maximizing all the space in the Sterling Heights location, he decided to look for a second location...in the Spring of 2019, that is EXACTLY what he found! The Madison Heights location was fully renovated with brand new equipment, and officially opened in September 2019. In the Summer of 2023, build out started on the Clinton Township Location. The Clinton Township Location finally opened in December 2023.

SGA started with only 6 boys on team, and now averages over 1,000 kids in the gym every week! We have come a long way, thanks to our awesome families. Our plan is to continue to grow and expand, focusing on adding locations throughout the Metro-Detroit area. Our gym is continuously updated for both your child and your comfort! Both facilities are entirely air conditioned and heated so you never have to worry about the temperature!

We Teach More Than JUST Gymnastics

We teach life skills


We spend time teaching each child the importance of dedication.


Each athlete will learn the importance of respect toward their parents, coaches, and teammates.


We will instill a high-degree of ambition in each and every child that walks into class. This an important quality that will allow the gymnast to self-actualize.


All children will leave SGA with a level of confidence that will help them self-actualize.


We work with each child to establish a high-level of discipline. This will help them throughout their life.


Each child will obtain a certain level of strength; both mentally and physically.


Our coaches have a goal to establish a strong sense of passion in each athlete that will help them grow.


We work with athletes on their flexibility to keep them safe from injury. A safe athlete is a successful athlete.

The staff is great, my two girls (2 and 4) love there, they make gymnastics fun and Mrs. Victoria is as loving and caring as a teacher can be. We're really glad we tried there. They constantly have promotions and the birthday packages are also very nice.
