Instructors & Office Staff

SaveSave SaveSaveSaveSave SaveSave

GU has over 30 employees who maintain First Aid and CPR certifications. All coaches are safety-certified and all staff are background checked. Our instructors, coaches, and administrators are the brightest stars in the business, and each is hired for his or her unique talents, credentials, characters, and — most importantly — love of working with children. We have local, regional, and national experience, and continue our own learning at seminars and clinics.

We are each vastly different and unique, but we have one thing in common… we’ve all come together in one great place, Gymnastics Unlimited, to accomplish a shared dream of helping children grow up strong, healthy, and happy.
