Texas Dynasty Cheer & Gymnastics

Texas Dynasty is located in Waco, TX and was founded in January 2006. Previously known as Waco Gymnastix and Cheer Unlimited, the gym itself has been in existence since 1994! Texas Dynasty provides 7 different programs for boys and girls ages 18 months to adult, making us the largest and most comprehensive gym in the Waco area. These programs include preschool, recreational and competitive gymnastics, recreational and competitive cheerleading, and recreational and competitive tumbling. Texas Dynasty also works with several schools in the Central Texas area and is home to the Baylor Gymnastics Team!

At Texas Dynasty we believe that our success is created through hard work, persistence, and positive reinforcement from the coaching staff. The combination of these attributes and the dedicated families involved with our gym make Texas Dynasty a truly unique place to enjoy the sports of gymnastics, cheerleading and power tumbling. Our gym strives to create athletes that are not only superb on the competition floor but also upstanding individuals in everyday life. We create leaders and build self-confidence in every single one of our athletes. We hope that when the time comes for our athletes to graduate and move to a new phase in life, they take with them the integrity, hard work ethic, and self-confidence they have gained by being a part of the Texas Dynasty royal family.

The Last Detail

Safer poured-in-place rubberized surfacing for playgrounds, running tracks, anti-slip areas and more!


In recent years, an increasing number of municipalities, schools and business and parks and recreations have been prompted by regulations and consumer demands to find alternatives to hazardous or high-maintenance recreations surfaces. Obsolete products such as concrete, shredded rubber, pea gravel, sand, and asphalt are being replaced with bonded rubber surfaces that are safer, long-lasting, impervious to weather and aesthetically more diverse and colorful.

Here are a few facts about our re-engineered poured-in-place rubberized systems:
* 20 year life expectancy
* ADA compliant (wheelchair accessible).
* ASTM tested to protect children from a 12ft fall zone
* Made of 100% recycled tire buffing’s rubber (the shock absorbent layer) and E.P.D.M virgin rubber, the top coat manufactured by B.R.G Stockholm, England and ship to the U.S.A opposed to scrap rubber from Ohio.
* A 10 year warranty
* Up to $10,000 disabled tax credit (form 8826).
* 60% color (green, red, blue, tan) 40% black (Graphic included/special design).
* Most systems are three to four inches.
* Price is $11.00 per sq. ft.

Faith Photography

Faith Photography is a professional, freelance photography business. Rather than a traditional studio environment, we work strictly on location, bringing "the studio" to you. We personalize your images with your surroundings, not ours -- you get a personalized portrait with the convenience of us coming to you.

I am a photographer because I love people and the relationships we form with each another. The absolute wonder of a small child; the incredible beauty of an elderly person; the depth of love I see as a father and daughter dance... and hug and cry during her wedding reception - all these bring tears to my eyes. The privilege of capturing all the emotions - love, happiness, quiet contentment and giddy silliness - that form the fabric of our lives humbles me, and I am truly blessed to be part of a profession that provides priceless treasures that will be cherished for generations. The moments we share with loved ones today will be part of history tomorrow - and I delight in preserving these "slices of time" in photographs that stir the heart.

From the President...March 2017

Written by Byron Lester on .

With the cold months mostly behind us and Spring just around the corner in Texas, we eagerly anticipate warmer temperatures, chirping birds, weekend cook-outs, and new growth in lawns, trees and shrubs. New growth gives life and color to the dead of Winter. Just as Spring brings new growth, so too, are MerchanTrade members challenged to grow. To aid in this growth, I would like to highlight some basic concepts. An effective trade exchange member understands what it takes to be successful in bartering and experience allows them to evolve as traders. The degree to which each makes the transition will determine their ultimate success.

First, until they have sufficient trading experience, most new members think buying in the cash world and the trade world is virtually the same. It becomes increasingly clear to them how important timing and good relationships are in saving money on barter purchases.

Another common fallacy associated with barter is that no preparation is required for buying on trade. An experienced trader understands that a phone call or email to verify the contact or buying procedure can save much time and aggravation in yielding the desired results. Take the time to educate yourself on how to buy the things you want on barter. Knowledge and people skills are powerful here.

Another critical mistake by novice traders is failing to have a plan in place for saving money through barter. In the cash world, income is usually spent first on the most crucial things required to survive (i.e. - food, electricity, house payment, etc.). A savvy trader understands that trade dollars should be prioritized for personal or business expenses that will free up cash to pay for things not available on trade. Having a plan is absolutely essential for effective trading.

With no plan, trade dollars collect dust in unused accounts or are misappropriated because the novice is not aware of what may be available on trade. Either way, it becomes difficult for exchange management to help these members because they have simply chosen to do nothing. It’s hard to help members who won’t help themselves.

We encourage MerchanTrade members to be relationship oriented. Review the information that is sent to you so you can act on it in a timely fashion. In addition, take 10-15 minutes a month to prioritize personal or business goods or services that could be purchased with trade dollars. Then contact MerchanTrade for references in your areas of choice. We are here to help you save money! Remember, we are only paid if we are able to help you do so! Think trade!

Traders' Forum...March 2017

Written by Byron Lester on .

Do you have a plan for filling product or service category weaknesses in the exchange?

Yes, we do. We have identified the highest priority categories requested by members but unavailable in the exchange.

Here is a simple suggestion for members who have an immediate need for something not currently available on trade: If you will get a quote for the service or product from a locally owned company, MerchanTrade will then approach the company about selling that item or performing that service on trade instead of losing the job to a competitor.

In many instances, we fill vacant categories in just this way by bringing in new members with a current member’s encouragement. It is easier for a prospective member to say “yes” to the exchange when they know there is an immediate sale to be made.

We also simply call merchants who are advertising for new business in desirable categories. This often leads to new members because they appreciate the free advertising we do to get them new sales leads as opposed to cash advertising that provides questionable results.
