Boys’ Gymnastics Training in Germantown

Nonprofit Philadelphia Boys’ Gymnastics, located in the Wissahickon Industrial Complex, is the only gymnastics program in Philadelphia dedicated to boys. Having started in 2003 at Temple University, the program moved to Germantown in 2015. Training on six boys’ events; floor exercise, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar, along with trampoline, is offered to the general public. Classes are offered from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Currently serving more than 100 families, about 20 boys train for competition in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Program, while the bulk of students are beginners learning fundamental moves so they can advance to the competitive level. The program is directed by Fred Turoff, a former Temple Men’s Gymnastics coach who spent 50 years associated with that team, 41 as head coach.

Location: 4700 Wissahickon Ave., Building L. For more information, call Turoff at 215-204-7452 or visit
