MEDINA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2019--

The Dominique Moceanu Gymnastics Center (DMGC) featuring Carmen’s Yoga Studio officially opened its doors at 734 N. Progress Drive in Medina, inviting young gymnasts of all skill levels to experience a fun, joyful celebration of the sport that made Moceanu famous.

One year later, DMGC is thriving as a business and as a community gathering place, with hundreds of students – ranging from beginners looking to have some fun to serious high school champions seeking to improve their skills.

Moceanu herself can hardly believe that a year has already passed since she opened her dream gym’s doors to the public.

“Our motto is ‘Enhancing Children’s Lives Positively Through Sport,’” said Moceanu. “We set out to create an inclusive, friendly and positive atmosphere – our mission since day one – and it seems to have really paid off. We nurture and protect our athletes and make sure that families know they are always welcome here. This one-year celebration is symbolic of how far we’ve come, but also a glimpse into the future as we continue to add new programs and perks for our young gymnasts.”
