About Us

Our Mission

… teaching life lessons through gymnastics, tumbling, and fitness.

Our desire is to teach children how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives, so that they will have the basics to become healthy and balanced citizens of our community. At Power and Grace, we strive to teach strong character through the use of gymnastics, tumbling, and fitness.

Life at Power and Grace will teach the simple childhood lessons … like taking turns and sharing equipment … as well as the more complex life skills … like delaying gratification while working toward a goal, and coping with the frustration of failure while learning a new skill. Most importantly, we use gymnastics, tumbling, and fitness to teach your children about offering kindness and support to others, whether it be at the gym, or in their everyday lives.

The Owners

owners1We are very excited to have this opportunity to create a fun and healthy place for children of all ages and abilities to explore the excitement of gymnastics and fitness. Sports and physical activity have been an important part of our lives, and we want to teach this love of activity and fun to your children. We have created Power and Grace to be a place to tumble, flip, and exercise, but also a place of high energy and family atmosphere. Besides our regular class curriculum, we offer opportunities for friends and families to gather and enjoy some good, old-fashioned, non-electronic fun!!

We both graduated from the University of Arizona, with degrees in K-12 Physical Education. We have been married since 2011, and have each been teaching since 2009. In 2014, we were blessed with our beautiful daughter, Graylyn Louise, who is strong, funny, and fearless. Graylyn made us realize that we want the flexibility to be together as a family as much as possible. So we coupled that desire with a lifelong love of teaching and playing, and thus was born, Power and Grace! We have great, big, exciting plans for this place, and we hope you will come along with us on this ride!

What do we know about gymnastics?

My experience in gymnastics started when I was 2 years old when my Mom put me in gymnastics to allow me an opportunity to get my energy out without breaking household items. I quickly became addicted to the sport and it became the center of my universe. As I progressed, I reached level 10 and was practicing almost 7 hours a day. All the hard work paid off because I was awarded a full ride gymnastics scholarship to the University of Arizona. After I graduated college I dabbled in coaching but struggled to find a program that fit my views and values. Finally, two years ago Trevor turned to me and said; “Let’s open our own gymnastics gym” and it felt like a perfect fit. I have finally found a place for gymnastics in my life again and I can do it my way, making sure that every child is valued and encouraged.
