Sally Newton

Founder of Tumblebees Gymnastics/Ultimate Kids
1951 – 2014

Ultimate Kids opened in 1986 as Tumblebees Gymnastics, founded by youth athletic visionary, Sally Newton. We were Greensboro’s first kids fitness and sports training facility. Since that time, tens of thousands of Triad children have participated in our programs. While enjoying fun and fitness, these children have enhanced their physical and mental development. And, they have learned important life lessons about working toward goals, winning and losing, and respecting themselves, their fellow athletes and coaches.

Building on the philosophy Sally set forth, our program has grown and expanded to include a recreational gymnastics gym, an educational preschool, a dance studio, a rock climbing gym, a ninja gym, and a team training gym. All of these facilities are conveniently located on our campus on Downwind Road in Greensboro,  just minutes off of the new I-840 loop.

To better reflect the growing array of amazing programs we offer, we changed our name to Ultimate Kids – Home of Tumblebees. Today, there are over 1,500 children enrolled in sports programming here at Ultimate Kids.
