Meet The Gym Station's Coaches

Coach Nacho, Area Director

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 and became 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 Coconut

Howdy Friends, my name is Kiersten, AKA Coach Coconut. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and I am a recent graduate from Texas State University. I have always been passionate for health education. I started playing select softball when I was 8 years old, I was my high school’s athletic trainer and was a catcher for my High School’s Softball team. Living in San Marcos the past four years, has made me appreciate the beauty of the outdoors and the many activities that you can do. I love taking my dog Kolby for runs and walks and of course an occasional dip in the river. I look forward to working with your child and provide a safe & fun, gym experience for your child to enjoy.
