Jami has been a USA Gymnastics Professional Member and USAG Safety Certified Instructor since 1995. She is also a Junior Olympic Certified Coach, Certified Meet Director and CPR/First Aid Certified. As a competitive gymnast, she earned many first place awards individually and as a team member. Jami has experience coaching all levels of gymnastics but particularly enjoys working with the competitive teams and gymnasts ages 1-4 years old.
Jami was trained by KJ Kindler (former Iowa State Gymnastics head coach and currently Oklahoma Gymnastics head coach) as an athlete and as an instructor for a combined total of over 15 years. She then worked with Ray Corn (former Utah State Gymnastics head coach) and was director and head coach of the USU club gymnastics program for over 7 years. Many gymnasts that Jami has coached placed in the top 5 in the State and went on to compete regionally and even collegiately. She has managed and coached successful gymnastics programs, taught camps, clinics and run many competitive meets in Iowa, California and Utah. Jami has used her knowledge to help new coaches learn spotting techniques and coaching strategies.
Gymnastics has been Jami’s passion since she was a very small child and her love for the sport has only grown with her experience. Jami believes that all coaches can learn from other coaches and even their athletes no matter how much experience they may have in the sport. The part she loves the most about the sport is helping gymnasts achieve their full potential in a safe environment while having fun and challenging her athletes in the process.
Jami has been married to Mike for over 10 years and together they have one son named Axl who is 8 years old. They also have 2 dogs named Chica & Luna, 2 mini goats named Taco & Blanca and a bunny named Bonita. They enjoy riding dirt bikes, camping, off-roading, mountain biking and being outdoors with friends. Jami loves running and doing Crossfit. Owning a gym is her dream come true and she can’t wait to see the success that all the athletes and coaches will have throughout the years.
