Glory Gymnastics Center (Formerly Top Notch Gymnastics and Golden Circle Gymnastics) was founded in 1985 by Don Kirton. Don pioneered gymnastics in West Tennessee; he influenced thousands of young men and women to become great through the greatest sport in the world. In 1997 Don's unexpected passing left a void in the heart of Jackson. Chrissy Key a former gymnast for Don and one of his most trusted coaches stepped up to fill his shoes. Chrissy successfully guided and grew the gym over the next few years continuing Dons legacy and serving the families of the Jackson area.
When Chrissy sold the gym in 2006, it passed hands several times. These transitions allowed for Gymnastics to continue in Jackson.
On Wednesday Janurary 4th 2011, the Legacy Came full circle when Mark and Julie Crider took ownership. Mark and Julie have a combined 30 years of experience in the world of USA Gymnastics.
