A title traditionally reserved for fitness gyms, this year's honor was bestowed on the Southern Oregon Gymnastics Academy in Medford.

Gym manager Heidi Fogarty suspects the kids who train at SOGA teamed up to nominate their beloved school.

"We have a loyal following, so maybe our team families who really enjoy coming here decided to throw our name in," Fogarty said.

For Rogue Valley fitness buffs looking for a nontraditional workout, the SOGA offers gymnastics and tumbling classes for ages 18 months through adulthood.

The facility also offers field trips for groups of six or more and hosts birthday parties. Located on Samike Drive, the SOGA opened in 2005.
