Yousef came to Gold Star in the winter of 2010, after teaching gymnastics since 2005 at one of our neighboring clubs. He has his USA Gymnastics Safety Certification, and certifications in CPR and First Aid. Originally brought on staff to help with the boys competitive program, Yousef proved immediately to be an extremely versatile coach. He is currently teaching in our recreational boys and girls gymnastics program, our adult classes (along with a multitude of adult private clients), and is assistant director of our boys team. Every afternoon you can find him bounding around our gym – he is the definition of charismatic, coming onto the floor with a seemingly unending supply of energy and an infectious smile. He is so excited about the sport and coaching that the kids cannot help but adore him.
