Motivational Monday: KTR: Kids That Rip

KTR: Kids That Rip: Getting motivated with the kids of the East Valley to stay active and moving, especially in this heat. They have a summer program for 3-5yr old’s where they do gymnastics, trampoline exercises, ninja warrior stuff and skateboarding. The bigger kids can rip it up with parkour, which is also called free running, skateboarding and whatever they've got going on.


  • Go ahead and JUMP! FLIP! TUMBLE! Our in-floor trampolines are a great workout...


  • We'll tumble for ya! Our Gymnastics program is designed to help you develop fundamentals and advance as a tumbler.


  • Scoot on in here! KTR was built with scooters in mind.


  • The KTR Skate Park is open to all skateboarders. There are street-like components such as tables, benches, planters and ledges, all designed to maximize both fun and safety.

Team Gymnastics

  • We offer competitive gymnastics. Xcel through elite gymnastics. Our team is Desert Devils Gymnastics, with over 35 years of competitive experience we can help you achieve your goals!

  • Whether you're training for a national competition, or just for fun, this is the place. A warp wall, salmon ladder, quintuple steps, rings, slacklines and more.


  • Parkour is a free movement activity which can include obstacle courses, running, climbing, swinging, mantling, vaulting, jumping, rolling. Are YOU up to the challenge?

iBuyers & Realtors

The difference between using a professional vs using an iBuyer (direct buyer like OpenDoor).

When an iBuyer may be the right decision: Determining your sense of urgency (Do you need to close in less than a month or are you able to take more time), are you a distressed Seller (home is not in a condition to obtain market value, and you are unable to spend what's necessary to bring it to value), other reasons needed for a quick close.

When it's best to list your home with a Real Estate professional your home is in a position to be moved into immediately and is remotely current with modern trends, or you have the necessary funds to update your home for max value.

Quick and cheap things you can do to increase your home’s value. (If needed)

Queen of Clean: Orange Cleaner, two ingredients, two ways, citrus bombs for your disposal

Citrus Cleaner Two Ways

  • This is a mild citrus cleaner for all hard surfaces including granite and other stones.
  • Take a quart jar and fill it with citrus peels. Use any peel or any combination of peels.
  • Pour enough water over the peels to cover them and fill the jar.
  • Allow this to marinate on the counter for about 4 weeks, giving the jar an occasional shake. At the end of 4 weeks, strain out the peels (put them down the disposal for a fresh clean smell), and dilute in a spray bottle by using half citrus solution and half water. Use to clean more delicate surfaces like granite, marble and as a general all-purpose cleaner.
  • Change this up to make a stronger disinfecting solution for all surfaces except marble, granite, travertine, etc.
  • Fill the quart jar with the fruit peels and cover them with white vinegar. Let marinate on the counter for about 4 weeks, strain out the peels (put them down the disposal for a fresh clean smell), and dilute in a spray bottle by using half citrus solution and half fresh white vinegar. Use as an all-purpose disinfecting spray.

To Use Both Cleaners: Spray and wipe

  • Once you strain the peels out, store any remaining concentrate in the refrigerator.

Disposal Citrus Bombs

  • Place 5-6 small pieces of citrus peels {lemons, oranges, limes, etc.} into an ice cube tray and fill up with vinegar. If you have any leftover citrus you can use that too.
  • Freeze until solid.
  • I generally make up two trays of citrus bombs when I do these. If you need the ice cube trays for other purposes, you can then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag or other freezer storage container once they are frozen
  • Drop several in the disposal, turn on cold water and run until they are completely broken down.
  • The Vinegar will disinfect, and the peels will freshen the smell.
