Private Lessons

Private Lessons are available for 1-2 people at a time to get individual instruction in any one of or combination of the following aspects of gymnastics:


The 4 Events:
Vault
Bars
Beam
Floor

Core Areas:
Strength
Flexibility
Endurance
Other Valuable Areas:
Grace & Rhythm
Balance & Coordination

Physics & Technique
Focus, Discipline, & Visualization
Courage & Commitment
Safety & Injury Prevention


You can request on which area you would like to work, suggest an area not mentioned or even a specific skill, or you can ask for the coach's recommendation, to tailor the workout to the gymnast.

However, it is strongly encouraged that people new to the program start with a Class first to get to know the instructor and the facility.  Private Lessons are also not really the ideal place for beginners, as people new to gymnastics tend to do much better in a Class setting with fellow students.  The youngest age we serve in private lessons is 6 years old (but the youngest age we take in group classes is 11 years old).


Current Session Info:

**Abbie is also available for private lessons at Esh Circus Arts in Somerville on a regular basis on:
Tuesdays 6-7p (PLEASE NOTE: The AAU insurance is not necessary for students only taking lessons at Esh.)**


Other times may be possible, but individual arrangements must be made.

Other instructors may be available at other times, but don't have a regular availability schedule (so please inquire with them individually).  


Please use the following webform to sign up for a private lesson, which will also automatically register you with CCG if you are new.  However, you first need to follow the instructions for Step 1 on the Registration & Contact page in order to get covered by our insurance with the AAU if you have not already done so. Then come back to this page and fill out the form below to reserve your private lesson slot.

An email will automatically be sent to both you and the instructor to confirm the appointment.



Scheduling & Cancellations:  All Private Lessons MUST be arranged at least 72 hours (i.e. 3 days) in advance, but the sooner the better is always appreciated.

We respect the time of all of our clients so it is important that you arrive on time for your scheduled appointment.  You may arrive up to 10 minutes prior your appointment, to give yourself time to change, check-in, get settled, and start warming up.  Should you arrive late, we may not be able to extend your time.  If your session is shortened due to tardiness, you will be responsible for the entire fee of the originally scheduled service.  If there is a CCG class or open gym happening in the adjacent hour before or after your lesson you are not allowed to participate in that without paying the fee for that practice.  Your private lesson does not automatically grant you access to that time.

Lessons may be canceled up to 48 hours in advance for a full refund, except you will be charged a $5 administrative fee, but the sooner the better so that someone else may have an opportunity to schedule a lesson at that time, and so that the coach can arrange their schedule appropriately.  You can cancel a lesson yourself more than 72 hours in advance though your Member Portal (if you're a current, paid CCG Member).

If you need to cancel a lesson with less than 72 hours notice, please email us at director@cambridgegymnastics.org as soon as possible, and note that you will be charged a cancellation fee of $25 if you are canceling the lesson with less than 48 hours notice (you will get a full refund of the private lesson fee paid, but then be charged a separate cancellation fee).  In the event that you do not show up for your appointment AND do not provide notice (i.e. no-call/no-show), you will still be responsible for the full price of the session (i.e. your payment will NOT be refunded as the cancellation fee).  Of course, we understand that emergencies happen, and in these circumstances fees will be assessed at the coach's discretion.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
