Chief Operating OfficerHello! My name is Leigh but the kiddos know me as Coach Sparkles! I am the Chief Operating Officer of Gym Station. I started my journey with Gym Station in 2016 and have had the privilege of holding many titles within the company. I started off as a lead dance coach in DFW, then became the Assistant Director, Dance Director, then Director of Operations and now Chief Operating Officer! My passion for teaching children started in highschool when I taught competitive dance teams. I went on to receive a BFA in dance from The University of North Texas and moved to Chicago to teach Hubbard Street's Youth Dance Program. Once I moved back to DFW and started working for Gym Station, I quickly found that my passion for teaching children had grown in so many ways! Getting to teach not only dance but gymnastics, sports and fitness to children has been an absolute joy! I get to share the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle with hundreds of children each week and that makes my job awesome!
Director of OperationsHey guys!! I'm Josh, although I'm better known as Coach Beans. I'm 24 years old and I absolutely love my job as Director of Operations here in Austin. I was born and raised in central Texas and don't plan on leaving any time soon. 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! My number one goal at Gym Station is to create a fun, creative and exciting atmosphere where your kids can learn the importance of health and exercise all while having a blast. Some of the things I like to do in my free time include long boarding, biking, playing recreational 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!
Assistant DirectorHowdy! My name is Christina but you can call me Coach Curly Fry! I am a true Austinite, born and raised! I started dancing when I was 3 years old and I haven’t stopped since. Growing up, I trained in multiple dance styles including ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, and many more! I was also a member of the competitive dance team at my studio for 10 years. After high school, I continued to pursue dance by joining a pre-professional collaborative dance company, teaching classes at my dance studio and choreographing for different organizations around the Austin area. Now I am currently a member of a competitive hip-hop team! I have always had a passion for healthy living and staying active through dance and exercise. This is why I decided to pursue my personal training certification through NASM and gain more knowledge about our bodies and to help others lead a healthy lifestyle too! When I’m not coaching, you can find me in the gym, hiking with my dog, crafting, or cooking. I can’t wait to get moving and grooving with your little one!
