About me - The GymProf

Thank you so much for stopping in to see the gymnastics curriculum products I have developed. While I have named the business "The Gymnastics Professor," the name is a little misleading. I am a professor and I do coach gymnastics, but I am not a professor of gymnastics.

I have been teaching college for 13 years as an Assistant Professor of low brass at Augustana College in Illinois. When my oldest daughter got hyper focused on gymnastics, I started coaching because we had to travel to the gym in Iowa City and the practices were long.  I kept hearing the message of not letting your child practice at home incorrectly, and that's literally all my child did all day long, so I researched how you were supposed to do skills. I found so much cross over between music and gymnastics skill progression that I decided to take it a step further here. 

I hope you enjoy my materials. If you see something you want customized, please let me know and I will let you know if I can do it for you.
