As a new club, Advantage Gym Sports (AGS) have a strong leadership team taking them to the next level. The support of the coaches has seen their athletes compete at the Aerobics World Cup, Suzuki Cup and some of the junior athletes are about to head off to ANAC. These athletes have been supported by the coaching staff who have also attended all of these events.
The athletes are an amazing support to each other. They have nothing but respect for the coaches, each other and the sport. Every athlete regardless of age, ability or experience are included and given the opportunity to develop.
As a new club, AGS is giving athletes an opportunity to train for international events or to train at a recreational level.
