A state of the art facility

Our famous centre, based in Gorton, Manchester, boasts purpose built gymnastics training and teaching facilities featuring state of the art equipment.

CMIG, as a centre of excellence, is the culmination of a 40-year dream for Director of Coaching Colin Leigh; who had the vision and desire to create the best gymnastics facility in, not only, Greater Manchester and the North of England but throughout the UK.

Club & Facilities

Gymnastics for all

Our club has a full range of gymnastics development classes, from our parent and toddler Pre-School classes all the way up to our High Flyers & Top Flyers. We also have a dedicated programme of Competitive Gymnastics, with our gymnasts competing at Regional, National and International level.

The Home of Manchester Gymnastics
(and beyond)

We’re very proud of our history at the heart of Manchester Gymnastics – the club’s had a presence in the city since 1972, being in its current home in Gorton since 2004.

Many of our members hail from the local community. We’re also home to many young gymnasts from the surrounding areas of Manchester, Salford, Failsworth, and across the North of England. Gymnasts attend CMIG from as far a field as the likes of Bolton, Bury, Chorlton, Oldham, St Helens, Sale, Liverpool, Stockport, Farnworth, Wigan, and Leeds.

Spent 14 years of my life here and wouldn’t change it…The coaches helped me gain such amazing achievements and experiences…Great place, facilities and people. Highly recommend!

Morgan Finnegan

My son is 2 and a half and he absolutely loved this morning’s Pre-School session. It was so well organised and the final gymnastic circle time was fantastic. Lots of yoga connections too. We both loved it, thanks very much!

Claire & James Ash
CMIG is a brilliant gymnastics facility. I’ve been a parent there with 3 children for 8 years now and it has catered for all of them with different levels of ability. The club is totally focused on producing excellent gymnasts.

Catherine Jacques
My lad loves it at Manchester, nice friendly people (staff & gymnasts, parents), lots of communication from the coaches. This club just has a great feel about it.
