THERE'S a little shed in Bundaberg that's home for the city's tumblers, jumpers, twisters and turners - and out of that shed comes star athletes and beginners having fun.

Gymfinity Gymnastics is primed for a big start to the year after finishing 2012 with the only dilemma being where to store all their trophies.

And as one of Queensland's youngest gymnastics clubs it lead the way for the sports development and it received recognition at an awards ceremony in Brisbane recently.

Gymfinity was seen as having the best facility, sport development, community engagement and staff mentoring and coaching in the state.

It was a fantastic result for the young club, Tracy and Tony Hogan opened the gym 12 months ago and the growth they have experienced has been astonishing.

Boys and girls of all levels have flocked to the gym now the club has grown to 600 members and they will be very busy in the coming months with plenty of competitions planned.

There is an invitational meet planned for March, a Gymnastics QLD Grand Prix competition in April and the regional titles in May, but Tracy Hogan says the focus for this year is not all on competitions.

"It's great to see the club grow so much and we are starting to get some high-level boys and girls," Tracy says.

"Competing is great fun but we also have programs for the younger kids in the kindy-gym which is heaps of fun."
