Virginia Elite Gymnastics Academy ditch their old foam pit for a BigAirBag®

By 12th April 2021November 8th, 2022No Comments

Virginia Elite Gymnastics Academy is ecstatic with the results!

The VEGA gym, formerly known as New Kent Gymnastics Center, opened the doors to their brand new facility at the end of summer 2020. Opening a new facility during a global pandemic has given the team at VEGA a definite challenge.

As many of us have realized in the last few years, it is of utmost importance to provide the future generations with a safe & healthy training environment. It is not only important to have safety measures but to have safe and hygienic equipment as well. Loose foam pits have been found to produce toxic dust from flame retardants.

Hygiene and safety are the main priorities for VEGA gym. They conducted extensive research and talked to several other gyms before committing to a solution. In the end, BigAirBag ticked every box.

One of the added benefits is the full-color branding on the topsheet. The VEGA branding is very colorful all over the gym, which makes it a perfect match for the purple stars on the Air Pit topsheet.
