Labiba describes her coaching style as “happy, progressive, attainable” and her favorite event to coach is bars! Labiba’s passion for working with children began through her 4 1/2 years of volunteering at the Allen Public Library and Kids Learning Center, where here mother worked and where her love of working with children grew.

They have a very unique and creative mind where they like to imagine such wondrous things! That’s what made me fall in love with coaching.” We are exicited to have Labiba apart of of our sales and coaching staff at ASI Allen as she gets to inspire and motivate children on a daily basis!

Cristina is one of our new coaches! She has only worked at ASI Plano West for six months. She came to us referred by one of our awesome coaches. She began her ASI Journey as a sales representative and is excelling in that position. She has recently started to help our with our after school program as an assistant but hopes to become a lead soon. She has also worked birthday parties on the weekends as well. She works tons of fun products to match her fun personality.
Cristina graduated from Liberty High School and is currently attending the University of Texas at Arlington. She stays fit by walking around her campus and working out. Cristina has previously played basketball, volleyball, tennis, and soccer. She played soccer with FC Dallas for two years and also joined her high school soccer team. Sports were a requirement in her family!
Cristina’s favorite product to coach is the after school program. We asked her what she loves most about coaching and she said:
“The kids, I love seeing them come off the bus and run to hug me. No better feeling than seeing my kiddos excited to unwind from school and play and simply enjoy the aspect of being a kid.”
Cristina believes gymnastics is beneficial for kids because, “it allows them the opportunity to break certain fears they might have, to open up and push their limits, and to keep striving to improve.” The kids know if they are going to be in coach Cristina’s group that they will have a fun, entertaining, and rewarding day!
Coach Jackie has been coaching at ASI Rockwall for a little over a year now. She currently coaches Our Recreational Girls Gymnastics Classes – Bronze level and several Kidz Gym classes. She has also began coaching some Power Tumbling classes. She also works some of our fun products, including Birthday Parties, Camp, Open Gym and Parents Night Out.
Jackie says the thing she loves the absolute most about coaching at ASI is that she has the opportunity to impact every child that enrolls in one of her classes. She hopes they remember her way past their days at ASI.
In her spare time, Jackie enjoys wrestling. She is a member of the womens wrestling team at Rockwall High School and she is ranked 1st in the state right now.
“Patient, Motivating, and fun” This is how Jackie described her coaching style.”Gymnastics is great for kids, because it instills good habbits in these kids and they are learning how to control their bodies and interact with their peers.”
We are very lucky to have such an amazing “team player” not only as a coach here at ASI but as a part of the ASI family.
