Hello Members & Guests of Gold Medal Gymnastics,
My name is Santosh (Tosh). I am the owner of Gold Medal Gymnastics since April of 2017. Prior to owning the gym, I have coached kids in various youth sports to include basketball and soccer at Sports of All Sorts.
I have obtained a Professional Membership & Instructors Training & Certificate with USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for the sport in the United States. I have also obtained the Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention (CDC) Heads UP Concussion Training & Certificate.
I was very fortunate to have this opportunity to mentor the youth in our community of Independence Kentucky. My goal has been to take life’s experiences and the education I have acquired to help the next generation & must pass it on to the youth for them to support a well-balanced life of great ethics, morals, health and fun, also, to reinforce what they learn at home and school. With the advancement of technology, the balance has swayed society to a sedentary life and with this opportunity I hope to bring balance back with physical health into youth of the community as they will take these experiences and do the same for the following generation.
This is the community’s gym and hope that you could be a part of the gym. I also keep in mind that that the current student could be the next Instructor at the gym to afford the individuals of the community with the opportunity for personal growth, development and practical experience.
Hello Athletes and Family,
My name is Sydney Clark, I’m a freshman at Northern Kentucky University majoring in nursing. In the past I began gymnastics when I was younger and then started cheering. I cheered for 9 years and absolutely loved it! I enjoyed the discipline, teamwork and fun it brought into my life and wish to pass those life lessons and skills to my students here at Gold Medal Gymnastics.
My favorite thing about working with students is seeing them get new skills while having fun and the confidence it brings them.
My goals while working at the gym are to create a safe and fun environment where the kids can be comfortable and learn new skills socially, mentally and physically.
Please let us know if you have any questions or goals you and your child may wish to achieve.
Hello Parents and Athletes,
My name is Jordan McInerney and I am currently a student at Northern Kentucky University whom graduated from Simon Kenton High School.
I am a third year double major in Finance and Economics and have studied International Finance and Trade at the Business University in Aarhus, Denmark. On campus, I am a member of the Finance and Accounting Student Association as well as a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority.
I have 8 years of experience in cheerleading and 2 years of coaching experience in cheerleading and gymnastics. Over these years I have acquired many skills that have shaped me into the person I am today as well as the coach I am today. When coaching, my main priorities are for the athletes to be safe, teach students skills in ways the individual learns best, and to encourage fun within the sport.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me.
Hello Students and Parents,
My name is Tanushri (Tish) and I have always been in some form of dance, cheer & gymnastics since I could walk. I first started as my instructor lived 3 houses down and I started with ballet. After a few years I began learning traditional Indian dance. Then I began gymnastics & cheer lessons from the previous owner of this gym prior to my father’s ownership. I have been in many performances and competitions in the art and sports since I was 2-15 years of age.
After, I decided to become a volunteer with the children at the gym until I got my Instructors & Concussion Training with USA Gymnastics which I have completed to reach my goal as an instructor.
Currently I am attending Simon Kenton High School and was selected into the Kenton County Academies of Innovation and Technology where I take courses in Biomedical Sciences to begin my career path.
I really enjoy working with children and like to teach them gymnastics & cheer skills at the gym. I try to assist with some of the life lessons I have learned, as the students will enter the development phase I just completed so they could immediately apply them in their upcoming personal development.
Feel free to discuss parent and child goals so we could help you all achieve them.
Parents and Athletes,
My name is Brooklyn Sauer. I am junior at Thomas More College and will be majoring in Psychology. While studying at TMC, I will be participating on their dance team.
I have been dancing since I was 11 years old. I previously took lessons at NKY Elite where my contemporary solo placed fourth in competition, performed a solo at the state fair in 2013, and joined Delta Chi Xi, the Honorary Dance Fraternity Inc.’s Beta Chapter while studying at Morehead State University.
Furthermore, I have been tumbling since I was five years old. I began in the gymnasium at Piner Elementary where my teachers gave me confidence to flourish. In fourth grade, I competed on Top Flight’s Trampoline and Tumbling Team. While on that team, I accomplished so many skills that helped me succeed during my cheerleading career.
My goal here is to let every kid work to their fullest potential and to give each student hope so they will NEVER give up!
Hello students and parents,
My name is Emma Geers and I am a freshman at Cooper High School.
Every since I was three years old gymnastics has always played a significant role in my life. Starting my gymnastics career at a young age I attended many gyms. Having a background of being a competitive gymnast for eleven years as well as training for the Junior Olympics in 2016 for two months, I´ve learned that it's important to build a fundamental relationship with an athlete in the gym and outside the gym.
My goal for your athlete is to make sure they reach their goals and to build a strong bond between your athlete. I can't wait to help your athlete achieve their goals and to guide them throughout their gymnastics career!
Hello Students and Parents.
I’m Loghan Currin and go to Simon Kenton High School. I’m one of the dance instructors here at Gold Medal Gymnastics. I’ve danced for 13 years at three different studios. I’m currently at Studio Dee dance studio to continue my dance skills and knowledge. I’ve taken all styles of dance throughout my life to include Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary and Hip-Hop.
I’m gifted and talented in leadership and am in a Green Dot of Northern Kentucky at my school. I’m involved in lots of clubs and love learning and growing to the best of my ability.
Teaching the youth and student athletes has always been a passion of mine. Having an opportunity combining all my passions is pretty awesome. I strive to make sure I’m teaching in a safe, fun and fair environment. I look forward to dancing!
Hello Students & Parents,
My name is Rebecca and I am currently an instructor at Gold Medal Gymnastics. To begin with, my life has revolved around cheerleading and tumbling all of my life. I have cheered for 15 years and have always loved it.
I am currently a senior at Simon Kenton High School and I am completing an internship at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital during the school afternoon. I also take dual-credit college classes and will graduate as the top 10% of my class out of 500 students. Through the classes I take, I am also in the Kenton County Academies most specifically, the Biomedical Sciences Academy. When I go to college, I will be majoring in nursing and biology and becoming a nurse practitioner.
One of my goals as an instructor is for your athlete(s) to build up confidence with everything they do. Not only does this apply inside of gymnastics to be confident with throwing certain skills but as well as outside of the gym. It’s very important to me to help all athletes become comfortable and confident with themselves with everything they do.
Teaching athletes and helping others has been my top, favorite thing to do of all times. Helping people figure a problem out and seeing them master a skill and move on to something new is so rewarding as an instructor. Seeing their faces a few times a week is my favorite time!
