After almost 30 years in the industry, our goal at Olympia Gymnastics Academy is: To inspire greatness in our athletes. Our coaches have been blessed to witness hundreds of athletes coming to truly believe in themselves. That lightbulb moment inspires Olympia’s coaching staff every day.
The legacy of Olympia Gymnastics begins in 1995 and includes over 50 NCAA gymnasts, two level 10 Team State Championships, many individual National Champions, and the over 10,000 aspiring souls from Parent-n-Tot, Preschool, Recreation, and Tumblers who have walked through our front doors. We are measured more by our heart growth than by trophies.
MEET OGA’S OWNER & HEAD COACH
My gymnastics experience began in a parent-n-tot class at two years old. Although I loved gymnastics from the start, my early career was not entirely successful. Success, I have come to find, is not linear, nor should we expect it to be. As a late bloomer, I had to overcome both mental and physical roadblocks before seeing my passion and hard work pay off by winning the 2008 Level 9 National Beam, Floor, and All-Around Individual Championships. I concluded my competitive career as a member of the 2009-2010 Arizona State Gymnastics Team while obtaining multiple certifications:
- National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Mental Toughness Coach
- Precision Nutrition Certified Nutrition Coach
- National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist
- Peak Pilates Comprehensive Certification
- National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer
- National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Performance Enhancement Specialist
Gymnastics is a roller coaster of a sport. We teach our parents and students to welcome the highs and lows respectively. Our mission is to provide a safe loving environment where children can learn mental toughness, proper nutrition, recovery techniques, physical, mental and emotional strength, and flexibility through the sport of gymnastics. Olympia Gymnastics Academy incorporates our mission into a progressive plan for every child from 18 months old to 18 years old. If you’re looking for long-term health, success, and happiness, you have come to the right place. Amazing Awaits.
