Coach Nacho

Director of Operations

Hi Everyone! My name is Nathan, but your kids know me as Coach Nacho! I am the Director of Operations here in Austin! I started with The Gym Station as a coach and my favorite part has been watching the kids grow and accomplish so much with our programs through the years! I grew up doing competitive gymnastics and as soon as I was able, I began coaching all levels of gymnastics while earning my Associates Degree in Fire Science to become a certified EMT/Firefighter! However, my heart was hooked on coaching ever since I experienced how a little determination and encouragement can help children reach their goals. My main goal here at The Gym Station is to create a FUN, EXCITING, and ENCOURAGING atmosphere where your kids can learn the importance of health and exercise—while having a BLAST with all our AMAZING staff!!! Before I moved to the best city in the world…Austin,TX…I grew up in Georgetown,TX. In my free time, I enjoy backpacking, any sport/fitness activity, and music! I can't wait to share my enthusiasm for health, fitness, and FUN with your children!

Coach Beans

Hey guys!! I'm josh, although I'm better known as Coach Beans. I was born and raised in central Texas and don't plan on leaving any time soon. I'm 20 years old and I currently attend Blinn College. I've been crazy about sports and physical activity my entire life and it's truly an honor to be spreading that excitement to your kids! Some of the things I like to do in my free time include long boarding, biking, playing sports and hanging out with friends! I can’t wait to meet your kids and teach them all kinds of fun ways to practice their skills!

Coach Glitter

Hey y’all!! My name is Cela but the kids call me Coach Glitter! I was born and raised here in Austin and love it! I have been a cheerleader since the age 7, danced competitively growing up, and love dancing just for fun everyday! I love to go on hiking adventures in our beautiful city's greenbelts and lakes. Staying active is a huge part of my life and I am SO excited for the opportunity to pass down my knowledge and enthusiasm to your children!!

Coach Hammy

Hey, I’m Zach, also known as Coach Hammy. I am from San Antonio, TX (Go Spurs! Go!) and graduated from Texas State University with a Health and Wellness degree. I am excited to be using that knowledge and my passion for health to create a fun place for kids to exercise, learn and grow as an athlete and as a person. My hobbies include being with my dog, exercising, being in the river and basketball, a ton of basketball!

Coach Llama

Hello Friends! Jessica here, or Coach Llama to your little ones! I’m originally from Florida and received my BFA in Dance and a minor in Psychology from the University of South Florida. I moved to NYC in 2016 where I taught dance, choreographed, and performed in several dance companies. In 2018, I moved to Austin (and LOVE it!) to create a performance dance company with my best friend and creative collaborator. I’m super passionate about encouraging the next generation to create, get their bodies moving, and to have a healthy and fit lifestyle now and in the future. I’m so excited to create, dance, flip, run, jump, play, explore, and have tons of FUN with your kiddos!

Coach Pepper

Hey there! My name is Taylore but your kiddos know me as Coach Pepper! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California but moved to Austin with my husband in 2016. I LOVE everything health and fitness but I especially enjoy teaching others about it. I believe kids can learn to love being healthy very early on with a little encouragement and some FUN! Soccer was the very first sport I played as a kid. From there I did pretty much everything else. Rock climbing, dancing, swimming, and tumbling. In college, I discovered CrossFit and haven't stopped since. I'm so excited to be working with your kids and to share my passion and experience with them!

Coach Pixie

Hello! My name is Kristina, but your kids know me as Coach Pixie. I am an Austin native and earned my BFA in dance from Texas State University. My hobbies include hiking, reading, powerlifting, and all things artistic! I can't wait to share my passion for dance, fitness and art with all of your little ones!

Coach Sparky

In my free time I like to go for a run, go to the gym or gather some friends to play basketball or racquetball. Sports and physical education are my life and I am very blessed to have the opportunity to share my passion and to show how fun it can be. Looking forward to working with all of your kiddos!!!!
