Flip City has cheerleading, gymnastics, summer camp and aftercare.  The kids in aftercare are barely supervised and run around like disgusting animals.  The summer camp is run by a bunch of underage teenagers who are working off their cheer tuition and are not old enough to legally work.  The cheerleading team is known to most as Flip Shitty!  They lie about athletes ages and then play stupid like they had no idea.

The coaches are a joke.  None of them have any formal training. The head coach Michael Rini aka Fratpad Caleb is known throughout the cheer world as a porn star.  He lies and tells people he was underage when he posed nude for online websites when in fact he was of age. Candice Lazuka, the owners oldest is the biggest pothead in town.  She takes her younger sister who is also a coach Tara Lazuka along for her wild ride.  She gets her tattoos without her mothers knowledge and shows the girls in the gym.  There are photos of the owner smoking weed along with her daughters.  There are photos on instagram of Candice making drugs.  Tara likes to go open the gym after hours for her friends to hang out, drink and get high.  They even use the camp bus to get high in.

Michael Rini uses rich men for their money but lives off of Lori's sofa.  He sweet talked parents into picking him up for practice until he finally got his own car!

Lori is known for double charging people for competition fees or tuition. 

So many athletes get hurt in this gym.  BEWARE!  For your own child's emotional and physical well being DO NOT GO THERE!

#1 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Flip city love

AUTHOR: Annonymous - (USA)

 This report and these comments make me sick. I have been an athlete at flip city for 3 seasons now. All 3 of these years I was on the senior 4 team and was never used to cross down. And to the person who says we weren't successful, tell that to my summit banner and metal. We worked our asses off just like every other gym out there. About the comments about Michael, tell me who has all this free time to go stalking other people's lives?? Like leave him alone. Michael is an amazing coach and I have nothing but respect for him. He loves all of his athletes. He has taught me what real family is like, which is honestly something I never experienced at home. He taught me how to work hard for what I want, how to eat right and stay in shape. Never once did he make me feel down on my self but only pushed me to work harder. Flip city is not only a gym, they are a family and anyone should feel lucky to be apart of it. I am 18 now and I know right from wrong and If a 26 year old can't go out and have a drink with cheer moms, than every gym would be in the wrong. So please leave my family alone, thanks. FC4L

The Original Report is so correct.

AUTHOR: CheerWithNoFear - (USA)

Do Some Research!! The original report posted above is completely accurate! This gym is notorious in the south Florida cheer circle. Sadly parents who are not educated in the World of allstar cheerleading are grossly mislead by this gym's success in competitions and the fake credentials the owner lies about her head coach having. 

What parents SHOULD KNOW is that this gym is only successful with a small group of very experienced athletes that the coach crosses over on to every lower level team, to win the lower level divisions at competitions. The same athletes that compete UNSUCCESSFULLY in level 4 are the same exact athletes that compete successfully on level 2 teams. Flipcity consistently beats competitors who have teams that are made up of athletes that genuinely compete at their skill level. This gym is only winning at the lower levels because they constantly cheat by stacking their teams with athletes that compete on teams two and three times higher than the lower level team they compete on secondarily. This is cheating and it's sad. All their coach cares about is winning, to shield his own insecurities, to try to build credentials.. The owner, Lori, tells parents that stacking is common at all gyms, NOT TRUE.

When you meet the owner, Lori and coach Michael you immediately understand how low end this gym actually is. Well you would understand it if you do even a little research. The owner completely lies about the qualifications of her gym and the coaching staff, even in writing on her web-site. Michael Joseph Rini, the director or head coach, claims he cheered and graduated from The University of Kentucky. What a laugh! Call UK, call their admissions department. Rini NEVER attended The University of Kentucky! He claims he's from Lexington Kentucky, yet he lived there for a year. His facebook says he is an alumni of The University of Kentucky, but he NEVER graduated HIGH SCHOOL! Where is your diploma Rini? Even McDonalds requires their employees to graduate high school Lori. Telling parents this fraudulent lie is intentionally misleading consumers, unlawful. 

The Flipcity web-site even publishes lies about coach Rini. A World Champion with Kentucky Elite, that is a complete LIE. A two National Champion with the NCA, that too is a complete lie! Rini cheered at Kentucky Elite for one year only and that team certainly did NOT win a National Championship or Worlds!

Lori allows one of the young male cheerleaders to share a hotel room with Rini at competitions. Rini someone who has done pornography, lived naked in a house with other men and had cameras follow him around all day, google Fratmen.com Caleb and you can see for yourself, with activity as recent as 2013 if you look through all the google pages. Lori thinks it's okay to have a 16 year old boy, share a room with Rini, unsupervised? I think this should be brought to the attention of the boys parents or the authorities.

Rini goes to practice frequently drunk! Some of the ladies will even comment on it after practice. He takes Adderall, that he asks parents for regularly as an upper! Then he is verbally abusive to the athletes, down grading these ladies by ridiculing them about their looks and weight..

Many of the ladies who have been an integral part of this team are leaving after this season. A lovely coach was recently fired and was classy enough not to bring a lot of the facts to the attention of parents. But a lot of people are asking questions now and doing a little research. This gym will fall apart when the truth comes out. The original post was so true.. I wish I would have believed it.

Champions Made

AUTHOR: Cheer Mom For Years - ()

 At Flip City in Boynton Beach no one is perfect, true!  When mistakes are made they are addressed.  My daughter has been cheering for 6 years and just started with this company this season and I have to say that she has blossomed more in the 7 months she's been at Flip City then she did anywhere else.  I look forward to her growth at Flip City and I know that Michael, Lori, and Tara love their athletes like family.  All I've seen is children learning discipline of hard work and what it is to be part of a team and having lots of fun.  In my eyes, Flip City just makes champions and perhaps this report is just a jealous Gym who rips off our cheerleaders routines.
