"Gymnastics is a terrific means to teach physical, mental and emotional life skills. I know that the concepts I am teaching my students will be useful for the rest of their lives. I think a fun and safe learning environment is the best method of teaching."

"It makes me proud to be a coach/teacher, if I can help a child identify their fears and ultimately conquer them. It is in theses moments when a child says, "Hey Mom, look what I can do!" that is most exciting to me."
