About TUMBLEBUS national

TUMBLEBUS is a nationally recognized children’s fun & fitness program for ages 18M to 9 years. The original TUMBLEBUS was started in the mid 1980’s in southern Indiana by Brenda & Larry Scharlow. The program was designed to provide tumbling & gymnastic instruction and fun & fitness activities to children by way of a mobile gym bus & gym facility program. The concept caught on quickly at local schools and childcare facilities and the scharlow’s soon started selling TUMBLEBUS and trademark rights across the country. Today there are over 300 TUMBLEBUS around the country, including as far as Hawaii. TUMBLEBUS has been recognized as a Fortune’s Top 500 small business, featured on CNN, “John & Kate plus 8”, and numerous other local news channels for the unique program offered.
