Welcome to National Elite Gymnastics

​Owned and operated by Mark England, National Elite Gymnastics was founded in 1988 with the belief that gymnastics, when taught properly, can be the vehicle with which to deliver lifelong knowledge of physical fitness. NEG exists to help children with strong mental, physical, and social attributes. Offering both quality recreational and competitive team programs, NEG has something for every child. 


Mark England
Mark is the mainstay behind National Elite Gymnastics. Mark received his Bachelors in Education from the University of Memphis where he was a three-year letterman in the sport of gymnastics. Mark dabbled in building contracting for a couple of years and realized his real passion was in the sport of gymnastics. He started National Elite in 1988 in the South-central part of Austin. As his business thrived, he created a vision and made it come to frutation. He built a world-class 30,000 sq. foot gymnastics facility with the ground floor hosting a gym dedicated to his team program. The upstairs hosts the after school and camp programs with break rooms, rooms for arts and crafts, and games as well as a theatre room for relaxation. The upstairs is also host for the UT Charter School. Mark's kind heart, dedication for perfection, and strong gymnastics background make him a coach and owner that gymnasts love, staff like to work for, and parents believe in. While, Mark's primary focus is on the optional and more advanced athletes, he enjoys coaching all levels from the new team athletes to the elite athletes.
