In addition, she has gained more than 13 years of experience coaching rhythmic gymnastics as well as 4 years judging. She has helped many gymnasts compete and win medals at state, regional and national competitions.
With her unique medical background, her gymnasts participate in this beautiful sport in a healthy and fun environment.
We are also fortunate to have Ms. Marissa Simerly helping us with our rhythmic gymnastics recreational classes. She has been involved with women's gymnastics for 15 years. She competed for 8 years, won several state and regional titles, and finished as a level 9 in Artistic Gymnastics. She has been coaching recreational gymnastics for almost 5 years. With her background, she is a great addition to our program and loves teaching our participants tumbling and acrobatic skills.
