FL!P is a fitness movement! We are redesigning the landscape for gymnastic-based organizations and circus centers. We are challenging traditional ideas and approaches by forging ahead with fresh attitudes, new ideas and methodologies built on a solid foundation of 'Fun, Fitness for All' and spearheaded by a dedicated and multi-talented team of coaches, trainers, athletes, artists and support staff.
FLIP FACTORY - FUN, FITNESS FOR ALL - is the foundation for FL!P and provides a number of popular gymnastic-based programs for beginners through to advanced athletes and toddlers through to teens. Flip Factory provides high quality programs that are purely recreational but challenging and staffed with highly qualified coaches. All participants are treated with the same respect and care across the board. Flip Factory has a reputation for all inclusiveness regardless of shape, size, age, background or ability. Flip Factory is a unique facility by design: Businesses operate within the business, the physical layout is multi-level, bright, colorful, creative and inviting.
FLIP ARTS & FLIP X-TREME - THE FUTURE OF FITNESS & ENTERTAINMENT - These programs are geared toward teens and adults, from beginners to professionals. The Flip Arts and Flip Extreme training space is adjacent to Flip Factory but is uniquely different from the Factory. The space has a sophisticated and more mature feel. Flip Arts is also a performance venue, with a black box theater space for the performing arts. Flip Extreme houses many of the obstacles used in Ninja Warrior Challenges including an air bag for high falls training.
FLIP MOBILE - BRINGING OUR GYM TO YOU - is a dual faceted program: We provide daycare centers with a weekly gymnastic-based, physical education program which coincides with Sport Canada's Active Start initiative. As a strong proponent of 'literacy for life', FL!P and in particular, Flip Mobile strive to provide as many preschoolers as possible with an opportunity to make gains in the area of fitness and develop a life long affinity for physical activity.
Flip Mobile also provides schools with the equipment and expertise necessary to conduct a multi-faceted approach to gymnastic based activities: Circus, parkour, stuntnastics and gymnastics. Flip Mobile for schools satisfies curriculum requirements and follows the guidelines for equipment use as put forth by the Department of Education. Flip Mobile not only helps educate students, but empowers teachers with the training and tools necessary to feel comfortable teaching a variety of abilities and levels with minimal equipment.
FLIP CAFÉ & TOT SPOT - FUN, FOOD & FRIENDS - This unique space can be found on the second level of Flip Factory, Flip Arts and Flip Extreme. This inviting and bright space houses an indoor playground with a wide array of soft, safe equipment to encourage movement and exploration. This is a non-structured, free play area for children 5 and under. The goal for this space is to keep caregivers and children active and encourage psycho-social development in youngsters. Flip Café is adjacent to the Tot Spot and serves Flip Factory customers and as well as neighboring businesses. A number of healthy, hearty and delicious menu items along with specialty coffees and teas are served.
FLIP UNDER THE BIG TOP - CIRCUS ARTS FOR ALL - encompasses FL!P's philanthropic initiatives. Giving back to the communities we serve is part of our Flip Culture. Flip supports a number of private, public and non-profit organizations and individuals. In addition to these important causes, FLIP UNDER THE BIG TOP, is an annual fundraiser circus camp for youth and teens, beginners to elite level athletes. Close to 50 participants come together for a one week, intensive circus training camp that culminates with two public performances. Local and international guest coaches along with Flip staff contribute to the event's success. In 2014, $21,000.00 was raised for the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation to help support mental health initiatives. In 2015, $10,000.00 was raised for the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Center.
