Our Mission

Champions Ranch Road 1826 is a gymnastics, tumbling and cheer facility committed to providing a safe environment in which students can conquer new skills, learn valuable life lessons, and have fun. Our students train in an atmosphere that celebrates their accomplishments and cultivates a sense of respect and discipline. Our comprehensive approach focuses on the athlete as a whole, fostering their social, mental, and physical development with the support of coaches and staff. We strive to create an environment in which our students experience successes both as athletes, and individuals.

Our History

Champions 1826 is an off-shoot of Champions Westlake, founded in 1996  by long-time Austin resident and University of Texas graduate, Gretchen Huddleston. The Westlake gym began in a small church facility and operated for 15 years before moving to the 26,000 sf space it currently occupies on Bee Cave Rd. 

Westlake offerings include Competitive Gymnastics and Cheer, Parkour, Trampoline and Tumbling, Birthday Parties, Fun Fridays, Early Learning Programs, Field Trips, Private Lessons, Camps and more.

Champions 1826 opened in a newly remodeled 10,000 sf space in January 2017.  Current program offerings include Gymnastics, Cheer, Trampoline, Tumbling, Parkour and Birthday Parties, and Camps.  

Thousands of families have benefited from Champions programs over the years and both gyms appreciate the communities they serve for their loyalty and support.
