History and Philosophy

The story of Exper-Tiess Gymnastics For All begins in 1988 on Long Island with founder Margaret “Peggy” Tiess, a pioneer, an inspiration, a visionary, mother to all, and a true trailblazer who paved the way for us to carry on her legacy of creating a fun, family run, structured, positive environment where people of all ages can learn gymnastics in a safe way while creating lifelong memories and friendships.

Our team philosophy is based on how this amazing woman taught us visualization, perseverance, self-motivation, discipline and to fully believe in yourself were life skills wrapped up in gymnastics lessons, sharing her personal knowledge and expertise as a judge/coach and person essentially, gave a welcoming sense of empowerment and caring to all who was touched by her presence.
Her contribution of using gymnastics as a springboard to cultivate strong, healthy student/athletes who supersede their potential as gymnasts, students and humans was beneficial beyond measure. Passing this knowledge down to her children and grandchildren created a group of coaches, whose approach has produced numerous local, regional and national champions.

Generations of gymnasts began their journeys here with us, progressing through the ranks of our program, gaining national notoriety becoming top level gymnasts and receiving gymnastics scholarships to prestigious universities.

With over 30 years of experience coaching gymnastics, our superhuman staff led by owner/head coach Barbara Tiess instills the principles of hard work, respect for others and physical and mental awareness that we hope will carry over into life outside of gymnastics.
