Gym Owner / Retired Coach
John had a vision to not just establish a gymnastics facility, but to offer an Academy that helped athletes of many sports achieve their personal goals and dreams. He was instrumental in helping young men and woman not only in gymnastics, but also track and field, spring board diving, ice skating, martial arts and many ball sports.
Gym Owner / Team Coach
I started gymnastics when I was 7 years old. It was only a tumbling class at first, but later turned into a gymnastics class which began my journey as a coach. I primarily work with our competitive team, however I love to coach all levels and ages! Coaching brings me such joy. It doesn't matter if I am coaching a more difficult skill or something as simple as a handstand or cartwheel. It is very fulfilling as a coach to see success in the children and then the happiness they have when they achieve a new skill they have been working hard to get.
Gym Manager / Recreational Coach
I grew up in a household of dancers; with my mom as a ballet instructor and my sisters and I taking every dance class our studio offered. I danced until I was 16 years old, when I started coaching at NASA Gymnastics for John and Linda Smith. I have always loved fitness, teaching, working with children and I never imagined how strong my love for gymnastics would grow! I am inspired everyday by the kids I work with! I love to see their motivation, help them over come fears, and watch their confidence grow; all while I get to teach them an amazing sport! Coaching is my passion; I love that there is always more for me to learn and opportunities for me to grow.
Pre-School Coach & Program Director
I started gymnastics at the age of 2 in Chicago. My parents were hoping I would simply learn how to fall properly; they had no idea it would become a passion of mine. Gymnastics built a great foundation for me to transition into other sports, like mixed martial arts. To be able to work with this next generation of gymnasts has meant the world to me. When I see a child’s face light up after they've just learned something new, I get just as excited as the student. NASA is such a great gym and I am fortunate to be a member of the coaching staff.
Recreational Coach / Office Manager
I started gymnastics when I was 2 years old and joined the first ever Trampoline and Tumbling Team at my gym (Gymfinity Gymnastics in Madison, WI) around age 10. I've been coaching since 2015 and I absolutely love getting to work with students at all levels of our recreational program. Helping students improve their skills, master new ones, and reach their goals is so rewarding. Coaching is more than just a job, it truly is a passion and I absolutely love what I do every day!
