The TUMBLEBUS held a ribbon-cutting Feb. 27 at its location, 908 S. Main St., suite 104 in Hinesville.
The TUMBLEBUS is a specialized gymnastics program developed for children ages 18 months to 8 years. It’s a school bus that has been refurbished into a mobile gymnasium equipped with bars, beam, vault, trampoline, ropes, rings and climbing equipment. The mobile gym offers a variety of mini-gymnastics and tumbling programs.
Many day-care facilities offer TUMBLEBUS programs during business hours. The mobile gym also is available for events and birthday parties.
Owner Juanita Lowery, who also owns Inspirations Performance Studio in Hinesville, said she discovered the need for the TUMBLEBUS after teaching dance classes at day-care centers and running into the problem of not having enough space for gymnastics and fitness activities.
After researching mobile gymnastics space, Lowery found a company in Kentucky that converts school buses into gymnasiums. The TUMBLEBUS was delivered in January and began operations Jan. 15.
“My plan is to have quite a few of them in the Coastal Georgia area, all based out of Liberty County,” Lowery said. “I have always wanted to do gymnastics, and now I have the opportunity to teach gymnastics and dance to both young and older students.”
Leah Poole, CEO of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, welcomed attendees to the event and thanked Lowery for being a part of the chamber.
