MEDINA, OH (WOIO) - A Northeast Ohio native is now hoping to make a safe place for gymnasts after the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.

Dominique Moceanu is best known for her role on Team USA's "Magnificent Seven" women's gymnastics team at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

At 14, she became the youngest gymnast to win a gold medal.

Today, the gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast is offering a chance for locals to train in a safe environment.

The studio's motto is "peace, strength, and balance," with the goal of "an inclusive, friendly and positive atmosphere."

The Dominique Moceanu Gymnastics Center also is home to Carmen's Yoga Studio. The new gym is located at 734 N. Progress Drive in Medina.
