About Us | Gym Star Sports


Gym Star Sports


The largest gym in Skagit and Whatcom counties, Gym Star Sports Center is a community hub where every kid shines! Whether it's in our Shooting Stars Preschool classroom, or learning dance choreography in Gym Star Dance, or mastering how to flip into our pit in gymnastics class, Gym Star Sports Center makes every child feel like a champion.

Gym Star Sports Center is committed to creating a safe, positive learning environment where recreation, fitness, and fun combine to teach skills for the day and memories for a lifetime! Owner Carolyn Saletto's goal in opening Gym Star in 2005 was to bring gymnastics to children of all ages and abilities and in a setting where every child feels safe and valued!

Mission Statement ---> "Skills for the day, memories for a lifetime!"

Whether a child's goal is to become a high level gymnast or just to learn how to do a handstand, our goal is to help them develop exceptional self-confidence so they can reach their full potential-and have fun doing it. We accomplish this at Gym Star Sports Center by promoting character development that is supported by the following Unifying Principles -
  • Unconditional Respect
  • Trustworthiness
  • Teamwork
  • Perpetual Growth
  • Humor
"We want each child to leave class at Gym Star Sports Center feeling happy, a bit stronger and excited for the next time they get to come to the gym. We're not necessarily here to create the next Olympian, but to instill in these kids a love of fitness and movement that will stay with them for a lifetime."

~~ Carolyn Saletto,
Owner of Gym Star Sports Center
