A Happy Olympian!

"Premier Athletics has been a big part of my life for almost 20 years.  I started my Flip Fest Gymnastics Camp out of one of the Knoxville gyms and even met my wife at Premier!  As a father of 3, I have had the priviledge of watching my kids experience Premier Athletics and their wonderful instructors/coaches.  They are well trained in teaching the skills and also well versed in dealing with different learning styles and personalities.  I remember when my son Hudson was taking preschool gymnastics there and we were waiting on his teacher to start class.  I decided to work with him for a few minutes before class started and he said 'Daddy - I want a REAL gymnastics teacher teaching me, not you.' As a competitve gymnast for many years, I love that Premier Athletics shows such passion for thier business and in a sport that has literally been my whole life!"

What Premier Has Meant To Me

"My first experience with Premier was with the preschool gymnastics classes at 3 years old.  By the time I was in second grade, I decided I wanted to start cheering for Sharks.  I was, however, not a natural tumbler.  As a matter of fact, my mom had to give me a private lesson to learn how to do a cartwheel.  It was through the support and great coaches at Premier that I ended up being on a Level 5 co-ed team that won a paid bid to the Cheerleading Worlds my senior year.  Not only did Premier instill a sense of confidence and support in me, the gym gave me a second place to call home and another group of people to call my family."
