Bristol Business “Flips” To Downtown

1656176_10201930890018321_479875850_nBRISTOL – Good things happen to those who wait and for Flips Gymnastics, 224 North Main Street will be a good thing for them and downtown Bristol.

The property is owned by O.V. Resources and they’ve tried to find a tenant for the vacant downtown location. The building most recently housed the Fitness Center for Women. Last year the Center moved to Birch Street.

Thomas Kopchick with O.V. Resourses said they reached out to Flips to see if the downtown location would be a good fit. After weighing out other locations owner Erin Walsh decided to go with the downtown location.

Flips now leases space on Farmington Ave.

Walsh has taught gymnastics to kids of all ages for over 20 years. Flips specializes in Preschool Fitness programs to encourage children to stay fit and make healthy choices.
