Programmes & ActivitiesActive Attitude specialises in assisting children with developing fundamental movement skills and provides sporting opportunities at a recreational level and competitive level. If competitive sport isn’t something your child is interested in, then we have more advanced recreational opportunities that they can choose from.


Gymnastics is the foundation of our organisation. Through our PlayGym classes (children can start these classes as soon as they are walking); it provides the groundwork for all of our other programs. Gymnastics is truly a ‘super sport’ and assists children with developing fundamental movement skills which are required for other sports, hence gymnastics providing the ultimate pathway to your child’s future sporting ambitions. The strength, flexibility and agility that gymnastics provides over time is phenomenal.


PlayGym #1: As soon as children start walking or once they turn 1, they can be enrolled in this class. Each child is required to have an adult participate in the session with them.

PlayGym #2: These classes are for children aged 3-5. Each child is required to have an adult participate in the session with them.


Recreational Gymnastics Programme: We have a range of recreational classes available for those students who are beginners’ right through to those students who have been involved with gymnastics for years, but don’t want to be involved in competitive gymnastics. Active Attitude will assist parents with selecting a class which is best suited to the child’s age and ability.

Pre-Competition Gymnastics: These classes are for students wanting to gain the skills required to be able to enter a competition gymnastics programme. When students reach a certain standard, they will be referred to a competitive gymnastics club. These classes are suitable for ages 7-12. The coach of this class will ensure that children have proficient fundamental skills, strength, flexibility, and presentation skills before referring them on to competition gymnastics or one of our more advanced recreation classes. Children are required to meet some prerequisites before being enrolled in this programme. Please discuss this option with Ashleigh.

Teen Gymnastics: For students aged 13-18, these classes are recreationally based, but there will also be the optional opportunity for participants to compete at a novice level at the New Zealand Secondary School Gymsport Championships which are held in Auckland each year.

Private Tuition is also available.  Please contact Ashleigh to make a booking, or 021 145 7636.  We are also able to do sessions for dance groups that would like to learn gymnastics movements for their dance routines.


One-one tuition or group sessions are available. Active Attitude can come to you and bring along swimming equipment to assist learning. We do not have our own swimming facility, therefore we utilise home pools, school pools or community pools (if possible).

Are you an adult who has never learnt to swim? Did you have a bad experience which put you off water? Does your child have a fear for water or are they currently struggling to learn in a group situation? Private one-one lessons may be a good option. To discuss this further, please contact

Active Attitude also has a range of programmes available for Schools and Early Childhood Centres. Click on our “Schools” page to find out more.
