Small Business Profile: Flip Factory
When I had the privilege of visiting Flip Factory, located in the heart of Calgary-Klein’s Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association industrial district, I walked in picturing a simple gymnastics gym. Boy was I wrong!
Flip Factory, which was founded by Darlene Traviss, is a facility that includes all sort of components designed to inspire kids and adults to get active while also having a blast. They have been open for 6 years come October.
They do beginners to advanced gymnastics, aerial, stunt man and ninja warrior training, and circus arts. They also have a separate space called the “Tot Spot” for kids 5 and under. What I found really exciting was their Black Box Theatre which is used to do performances for an audience. Their next production will be “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
It is also important to note that Flip Factory runs rentals for parties as well as Summer Camps.
Why choose Flip Factory over other gyms in the city? Apart from the diversity in disciplines, they also have the only indoor euro bungee in Calgary, and are proud to keep their programs non-competitive!
Lastly, their Flip Café is a real surprise gem, located upstairs and easily accessible to anyone wanting a bite of food. Some of the Café’s main clientele are fellow industrial area businesses.
