Kole has been with ASI for almost 3 years and he loves everything about the sport of gymnastics. He loves jumping on the trampolines and improving his pommel horse skills. Every week Kole comes in eager and excited to attend Coach James’ class. He’s mentioned numerous time how much he loves Coach James.
His mom, Cara, has mentioned, “Gymnastics has helped him significantly with his gross motor skills, coordination, and balance.” It’s also an added bonus that his mom works the desk and he is now an extension of the ASI Arlington family. During his spare time he is either building something with his massive Lego collection or learning more about dinosaurs. This kid is pretty awesome!

The positivity and encouragement is fantastic.” Keep it up, Ashlyn!
Yadiel has only been in gymnastics for a year, but is one of our top performing Level 2 Team members! He began in Boys Silver and quickly progressed to Boys Team and Power Tumbling classes. Yadiel has tried many different sports in the past, but easily got bored. He said, “I really look forward to class as I learn something new every time. I can almost do a back-flip!” Since beginning he has really enjoyed all of his coaches. According to both Yadiel and Mom, Coach Trent, Tanner, and Leith have all worked closely with him to develop his skills and constantly improve his technique.
When I asked mom about why they chose ASI, Mom explained, “We were concerned because of his ADHD, but this has not been an issue as his coaches work hard on him. I am so thankful for all the caring and attention Yadiel has received in this past year. Watching him grow as a man and mastering his floor routine, polishing his mechanics, and building his confidence has been an amazing experience for all of us! So much so that even his brother was inspired to join.”
Outside of his time spent at ASI, Yadiel enjoys riding his bike, taking walks, and family hikes. Yadiel looks forwards competing at the upcoming State Meet. We look forward to seeing him continue to grow as a gymnast!

Mose also plays soccer when he’s not at gymnastics in his spare time. Mose’s mom has noticed that gymnastics has been very beneficial to him in more ways than one. “Mose is improving dramatically in coordination as well as muscle tone and strength,” noted Mrs. Dinh. “ASI is not only convenient to our house, but the coaches and staff are so nice and it’s cost effective to us.” You can check out Mose with his dynamic personality and awesome gymnastics skills at our upcoming Gymmie Kids meet on May 22nd that will be held at our Plano West location.

Piper loves her Tiny Tots class with Coach Meredith at Plano West! She has been taking classes at ASI since October. Here favorite events are the trampoline and pit, and she is currently learning to master her somersault! Piper enjoys coming to gymnastics because it challenges her to do things she wouldn’t normally try and it gives her the confidence to do it! While gymnastics is the only sport she is involved in at the moment, she is going to start ballet next month and soccer in the fall.
Piper’s parents love having her in gymnastics “because it helps with her balance, stability, sensory awareness, and mobility of her body…all of which she lacks due a genetic eye condition she was born with which has caused complete blindness in her right eye and severe sensory/balance issues.” They are so grateful to have found Coach Meredith, who is aware of Piper’s condition and works with her in a very gentle, yet supportive way.
