Testimonials March 2014
Having my kids cheer at Xcel 360 has been a fantastic experience. It has been amazing to watch their growth during the season and I attribute that to the great coaching staff. My kids ALWAYS look forward to going to cheer practice and that says a lot about the program. As a parent, I also appreciate the little things like organization, parents night out and access to great tumbling classes and private lessons. I am thankful that we have found a gym that we can call home. 🙂

We are a family of five who enjoy doing just about everything we can together. Xcel 360 has been amazing at accommodating us in this endeavor. We are lucky enough to have each child involved in extracurricular activities and even better than that all at the same place, Xcel 360!! Our daughter came to Xcel 360 after outgrowing her opportunities from the previous gym. She was only 9 years old and had been cheering for two years going from beginner to good level 2. In just a short period with Xcel they have cleaned up her tumbling, “xcellerated” her stunting abilities, and strengthened her desire and commitment. She is now competitive at a Level 5! In the midst of all the improvement our daughter has made, we have two boys who have been given the opportunity to cheer as well. We were not sure how they would take to this, but it turns out they enjoy the competition just like sis and have acquired amazing agility and body control by being participants at Xcel 360. They too have shown amazing growth going from not ever competing to solid level 3 all-star athletes and working on Level 5 Skills as well! This sport can be misunderstood by many- it is extremely difficult, highly critical, and can be taken very personal. The staff at Xcel 360 are professional and encouraging in so many ways, life is not always perfect but they see when things get stressful and take the time help people as much as they help build athletes. As a parent I cannot put into words all that Xcel 360 has done for our family, we cannot get enough of this place. The kids are involved in the All-star cheer leading, open gym on Fridays, spring break camps, summer camps, parkour programs, it is just too much fun for them. Believe it or not that is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what Xcel 360 has to offer for others both young and old. Xcel 360 is always trying to find new ways to meet the needs and interest of the families in its community. Just this year alone they have expanded into new areas offering crossfit, karate, private training for adults and who knows what is next. I am proud to say that our family is always trying to xcel and not only has Xcel 360 done that for our children but as a family unit we have xcelled also. Thanks for building character in our kids, giving them a drive for perfection, developing competitive athletes, and helping us stay united as a family.
The gym, Xcel 360, that Emma and Gracie cheer for is holding a contest for the kids and families that attend the gym where you write about how Xcel 360 has helped you and how you have “xcelled”. It got me thinking about just how far our girls have come since we first moved to Florida about a year and half ago. When Emma joined her cheer team last summer we had only been in Florida for a little over 6 months. We still didn’t know many people and the girls were hesitant to get out of their comfort zone. Emma’s sweet friend, Alli, encouraged her to join the team so they could spend time together. Emma was so excited to join but was also very nervous too. She worried she wouldn’t be able to pick up the skills fast enough and she worried she wouldn’t make friends. The first month of practices, she would cry on our way to the gym. She wanted so badly to cheer but was so nervous too. This past year, Ryan and I have watched Emma’s confidence grow and have seen a determination we didn’t know she had. Em’s coaches pushed her to do her best and try new skills. Emma’s positive experience inspired Gracie to try out for cheer too. Our family has met some wonderful friends and families through cheer. Xcel 360 has helped both Emma and Gracie to feel a part of our new community and has boosted their confidence both in cheer and in new situations. Our family is thankful to have our girls involved in such a great program with wonderful coaches – Coach Jen, Coach Chris, & Coach Gianna! They have helped our girls more than they know! I’m so glad Angela that you encouraged Emma to join!
I’ve ‘Xcelled’ so much since my first encounter at Xcel 360. When I first came to Xcel, I was eight years old and I did tumbling. My tumbling coach was Marvin, and now I see how far he has come and I think that’s amazing! Over the years I have done rec. cheerleading for six years. Eventually I heard more awesome things about Xcel and I wanted to do all-star cheerleading since I felt like I could push myself harder and become a better cheerleader, also be more competitive. After I finished my 2013 rec. season myself along with a few friends decided we wanted to finally do all-star and I knew Xcel was the perfect place. After tryouts I was happy I made it on juniors! When we started practicing, the whole team and I slowly got to know each other and become friends quickly! Also, I did the LITE cheer tumbling classes with a few of my friends. Then competition rolled around and I was nervous. When they announced us in 1st place, I almost cried and it was awesome, and I couldn’t wait for what the next competition would bring!! Practices were really fun and helped me get stronger mentally and physically, especially with full outs and conditioning. I grew to love my team in such a short period of time!! I was very happy with my decision to come back to Xcel because I made a lot of new friends,learned new skills, and much more! I’d like to say Thank you coach Chris and Coach Jen because you helped me a lot and my tumbling coaches ! Xcel 360 for life!
Good Afternoon Jen and Chris. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you both for all of your hard work, support, and dedication. As you know, we are new to the cheer sport and with this being Catherine’s first big competition we did not know what to expect. We our extremely proud to be a part of the Xcel 360 Cheer team. The weekend’s events were organized and professional. Catherine had a fantastic experience- she was a bit emotional at the end but thoroughly enjoyed herself and wants to continue to improve. I appreciate you both as Catherine’s coaches and I am looking forward to many great successes for Catherine. Thank you for encouraging her to stick it out through the tough spots. She now has had a chance to see some of her hard work payoff.
