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 Pixie

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 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 Bubbles

Hi! My name is Aurora also know as Coach Bubbles!!! I grew up in a border town in The Rio Grande Valley area. As a child, my parents wanted me to become a well-rounded individual so I attended many different classes like swimming, painting, sewing, dance, and guitar. These different experiences lead me to my love of physical education. I received my degree from Texas State University the fall of 2017 in Exercise and Sports Science. In addition, I am currently working on my Masters in Health Information Management. I am very excited to be working with your kiddos by implementing my love for fitness and health during our class!

Coach Donut

Hey everyone! My name is Zaida ... aka ... Coach Donut! I was born in Virginia but grew up along the south Texas border in a tiny town called Brownsville. I moved to Austin in August of 2017. I love working with kids! I was previously a preschool teacher and a certified swim instructor. It’s such a joy to be able to see them develop their skills and to witness them figure out something after trying so hard for weeks. Apart from that, I enjoy exploring the city, playing with my dog, swimming and painting. I’m very excited to be able to work with your kiddos and show them fun and exciting ways to develop their skills!
