Our seven-year old Jillian has been a part of ASI for an entire year now! Due to her hard work and dedication, she has already been promoted to Girl’s Silver with Coach Macie! Jillian loves coming to ASI because gymnastics makes her stronger and she just loves to flip around. Her favorite event is bars. She thinks her coach is awesome because she helps her to be a better gymnast. Along with being active in gymnastics, Jillian also loves water skiing!
Jillian’s mom believes her daughter is gaining more confidence and growing stronger by learning gymnastics. Her mom also said that Jillian has tried other sports, but her face really lights up when she gets to the gym. Her parents mention that ASI is a great gym that is “fun and builds well on her skills”. They chose ASI because “the coaches and staff are very friendly and helpful”. Amazingly Jillian’s family heard about ASI as they glanced across the street while driving. We are so lucky that they stopped by and we can not wait to see what the future holds for Jillian.
