Chris has been with Gold Star since 2000, and has taught in practically every aspect of our program: Mini-Stars, school-aged boys and girls gymnastics, and our Level 4 & 5 teams. He has gained the respect of every coach on staff because of his extensive knowledge of gymnastics in general and Gold Star in particular, paired with his easy going nature and upbeat style of teaching. In the summer of 2005, Chris was promoted to afternoon Floor Manager, trading off time between coaching and supervising. Originally trained as a cheerleader, and having competed on an All-Star Cheer Team since 1994, he began coaching cheerleading and tumbling in 1996. Chris has his U.S.A. Gymnastics Safety Certification, CPR and First Aid Certifications. While working with our artistic team gymnasts, he shows the same unwavering dedication he has with all of his students, and has helped to mold the group into an award winning team. In 2006 he added the title of father to his repertoire, and now juggles his many duties at the gym with raising his three beautiful children. Chris provides a positive role model for all of his students because of his generosity with his time, his unending energy towards his classes, his good-natured approach to life, and his constant respectfulness of others.
