Saint-Etienne is situated at the gateway to the Pilat Natural Park, with its vast green expanses and mountains culminating at a peak of 1,431 metres, providing the ideal playground to get into great physical condition.

It has 2 rooms dedicated exclusively to gymnastics and several specific facilities required for practicing high-level gymnastics. The gymnastics centre is also located close to the “Parc des Sports de l'Étivallière”, a 19-hectare complex devoted to various sports activities in the heart of the city, with an athletics track that meets international standards, as well as numerous playing fields and jogging circuits. Finally, the “Seraph-Berland” gymnastics complex is located 10 minutes from the Saint-Etienne University Hospital, where specialists in sports traumatology - who are informed about the presence of high-level sportsmen/women in the area - can respond quickly to provide high-quality medical care for athletes.   Website of the City of Saint Etienne:écouvrir-sortir/sports/sport-haut-niveau/saint-étienne-on-pratique-sport-haut-niveau
