NXS is a company that believes in the value of young people. They all have such a huge part to play in this world. We believe each young person is immeasurably valuable to God. Our company began in order to allow the McCraven girls the opportunity to use their gift for teaching and loving young people for the Lord Jesus. He is the reason for everything.
One of the greatest privileges we have is getting to know the wonderful young people the Lord brings into His gym. What a great joy it is to watch these young people grow as they pursue these difficult sports. They learn discipline, build endurance, suffer hardship, enjoy success, become more physically fit, learn to be determined, and most importantly learn about the love of God. All these things build what is commonly known as character. And character will always be an asset to them for the remainder of their lives whether they continue in the sport or not. It is our joy to help you instill character in your children that will help them be successful as adults and all while the young people are doing something they love.
We began our journey in a small strip-mall focused on teaching tumbling in 2006. It wasn't long before the Lord had expanded our vision and hearts. We purchased steel city gymnastics and moved into their facility in 2007. This move allowed us to expand our services to include competition cheer leading, gymnastics, and tumbling.
Again it seems the Lord asked us to expand our vision and pursue His heart. In October of 2011 we moved into a new facility in Calera, Al. This new facility allows us a separate space for our cheerleading program and all our other classes. We are currently utilizing 15,000sf of our 35,000sf facility (lease space is available).
The main gym:
- 2 40’ in ground tumble tramps
- full gymnastics spring floor
- full regulation cheerleading spring floor
- additional spring flooring for tumbling
- 5 beam
- 2 full sets of uneven bars
- star bar set
- strap bar/ pit bar
- parallel bars
- approx. 550sf of foam pit
2 & 3 year old room
This room is designed to have everything these children need for their class without the distractions of the large gym.
- Tumble trampoline
- Foam pit (coming soon)
- Cheese mats etc.
- Distraction free environment
Birthday Party Room
We offer birthday parties on weekends to members and non-members alike. We have a dedicated room in which you can enjoy your refreshments and cake. (Coming soon)
A dedicated area for our wonderful parents to watch their children learn. There is a 38' wide glass window with stadium seating coming soon.
Fitness facility for children and adults coming soon (upstairs behind the viewing room).
The entire training facility is air-conditioned.
Ultimately, we believe it is the heart of the Lord to help these young people to make a difference in their respective areas of influence. We are merely trying to labor with Him in encouraging a generation that many have given up on.
If you will, please pray with us that first and foremost Jesus would be glorified, His love would be known, and these wonderful young people would be encouraged to make a difference!
From the depth of our hearts we want to thank all of these wonderful parents who have supported us, encouraged us, and allowed us to be an influence on your children! May the Lord bless you and your families in Jesus Name!
