Owners: Dragana Dosen & Cheda Vragovic
After ending their athletic carriers as National champions and national team members (Dragana in gymnastics and Cheda in Karate), Cheda and Dragana graduated at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia (Dept of Physical Education) and as prestigious graduates, immediately got jobs as College Assistants at the same University. Right before their last Master’s Degree exam, Dragana got her contract with a Gymnastics Club in Nashua, New Hampshire and they moved to the USA. That was 18 years ago. In only 7 years they produced many State Champions in NH but continued to dream about owning their own school. The opportunity came, and they moved to Minnesota where they successfully ran their multi-disciplinary school and again, had many state champions, this time in gymnastics, karate and dance. Driven for success, Dragana and Cheda felt they could do even more. They sold their thriving business and moved to Florida in December of 2010.
The focus of the new management team is not only on individually talented athletes that show world class potential, but on all children who have the desire to enjoy the benefits of gymnastics. Brown’s Gym Orbit with its great staff celebrates every child’s good effort and has programs to develop good habits, body awareness, discipline and an appreciation for the importance of physical activity starting at an early age.
Most kids are explorers and enjoy trying different sports. Our state of the art facility has over 22 000 sq ft, making us an excellent location to expand our physical education efforts. Our newest programs are: KARATE, DANCE and CHEER. Children have an opportunity to try it all with no obligation or any long term contracts. Brown’s Gym Orbit offers classes during the morning, evening and Saturdays year round. Plus, with all new “fun” equipment (zip line, 18 ft inflatable bounce house, climbing nets, and more) Brown’s host unforgettable Birthday parties at an affordable price!
Gymnastics training provides the essential core athletic elements necessary for success in many sports. Children who participate in gymnastics develop better balance, strength and flexibility. Plus, it is still one the most popular sports. As Physical Education professionals, we understand that activities like gymnastics are most beneficial to children if they participle two or more times per week. For this reason Brown’s Gym Orbit offers a huge discount (25-40%) off of a child’s second or more classes during the same week. We also offer the same type of discounts to siblings. In this hard economic time, our goal is to help families of this community keep their children’s health a top priority.

“I had previously had my daughter at Brown’s. We took some time off and decided to return. Upon my return I was amazed at all the wonderful changes that were made. Brown’s now offers additional sports options and everything has been updated. Its wonderful to come to Brown’s. We are happy we came back and grateful for all the positive changes!” – Rosse R.
“I recommend Brown’s to everyone who has kids” – Yoanit P.
“We tried Browns several times over the years and my girls never enjoyed it until now.
While gymnastics is still the focal point, the addition of dance, theatre and soccer are fantastic. All programs can enhance the overall experience. Great Cardio, balance and one can’t say enough about the theatre and the benefit it offers students. Theatre has also been linked to better school performance and grades.
I can’t say enough about the new owners either. I could not believe their physical form when they took to the floor to instruct classes themselves. You can see their love and appreciation of sports is genuine. I especially appreciate their respect, pride and consideration in taking over and enhancing an established business. They truly lead by example! We appreciate the European flavor and welcomed it to the community” – Samntha T.
“I want you to know Jake is so great with the kids. He works so well and patient with the children; you can see they love him.” ~ Darlene S.
“…my daughter was on the fence for awhile because of her nerves/anxiety, but I think she has been growing more confident because of you and Cheda. The girls did great last weekend thanks to you and your hard work. My girls are so excited every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to go to gymnastics.” ~C. Savage, Team Parent
“I wanted to let you know how much my girls are enjoying practice with you and Cheda. Their overwhelming love and interest in gymnastics has returned and we are so grateful. They had started to lose interest over the past 6 months because they were not really progressing. In just the past few weeks we have seen improvement in their skills. Even the girls notice. They have commented on how much harder they feel they are working and how much better and stronger they are becoming (and they like it!). ” M. Dearth, Team Parent
“Coach Bonnie has helped my daughter grow so much in her gymnastics! 💙💚 My girl has only been in gymnastics a little over a year, I can’t get… over all of her accomplishments in such a short time and at such a young age which is exactly why I drive her 30 minutes away t0 Brown’s Gym Orbit . Such a great gym with awesome coaches!” – Jennifer T.
“Thank you Brown’s Gym Orbit! My kids love the coaches and enjoy coming to their classes”- Cheyonna S.
