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 Candy

Hey there! My name is Kimberly, but your kiddos know me as Coach Candy! I am a recent graduate from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Applied Learning and Development with a concentration in coaching and a specialization in health and fitness. During the course of my academic career, I learned about the importance of health and fitness and how it can enhance brain and body performance, especially at an early age. I am a firm believer that participating in sports allows athletes to participate in healthy competition which allows them to create and accomplish goals early in life. My personal goal with Gym Station is to be the best coach I can be for your little ones and to learn from experience what it takes in order to be a successful coach. My personal interests include hiking, working out, going to different coffee shops, and having fun with friends in the great, weird city of Austin. I am so excited to be apart of the Gym Station team and I cannot wait to help shape the minds of your kiddos!

Coach Cowboy

Howdy, y'all! My name is Matt, but you can call me Coach Cowboy! I was born in Arkansas but I've lived in Texas for most of my life. I'm joining the Gym Station team to help get your kiddos excited about fitness! In my free time I love to play music, hang out with friends, go to the gym, and do anything outdoors. Creativity and health are two major parts of my life, which makes me so excited to be teaching kids about the importance of staying active, while also showing them that fitness can be fun and creative!

I also enjoy stunts, acting, comic drawing, and tattoo art. I find a lot of joy in teaching people of all ages to grow in any areas of life. Physical education is especially important to me. I believe having that awareness and control is a crucial stepping stone to building personal confidence for health later in life. I'm excited to be here and to bring my passion for physical education to your students!

Coach Mermaid

Hello my name is McKenna A.K.A. Coach Mermaid. I am 24 years old and live in Austin, Texas. I started dancing when I was 6 years old when my mom enrolled me in tap and gymnastics. In high school I picked up dance again and then made the drill/dance team. I pursued dance after high school, and later joined two professional dance companies in the Austin area. When I was surrounded by a team of passionate dancers, that’s when I knew that dance was what I wanted to do. I have been teaching dance all around the Austin area for about 6 years now. I was also an ABA Therapist and provided dance therapy to kids on the spectrum. Teaching is my biggest passion and I love being able to share that passion every day with others. My goal is to make others feel creative, inspired, and empowered through dance as often as I can. I can't wait to continue to spread the love and power of dance with the kids I see everyday!
