U.S. Gymnastics Development Center is owned and operated by Michele and João Ribeiro. João was a member of the 1980 Brazilian Gymnastic Olympic Team.  Michele has a Bachelors Degree in Accounting  and has been a successful business owner since 1988.


​We are located in Leonia, NJ, the heart of Bergen County! We are just a few miles from the George Washington Bridge.


We believe that gymnastics is a stepping stone to every sport.  It focuses on strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, determination, and self-confidence.  Since 1988, we have been helping children achieve their goals and reach their potential through gymnastics, in a fun and safe environment.
