Meet The Gym Station's Coaches

Miss Tip Tap - Area Director

The name is Jennifer but the kids call me Miss Tip Tap. I love to read and dance and have been dancing since the age of five. But before becoming Miss Tip Tap at The Gym Station, I was just Jenn, a Nanny for 6 years. I finally decided it was time to combine the two things I'm most passionate about – working to improve the lives of children and dance. I just love seeing the smiles I bring to the kids everyday. It's great to know we are instilling a passion for fitness and dance at such a young age.

Coach Wolverine

Hi friends! My name is Santos Gonzalez, also known as Coach Wolverine, and my passion lies with kids. I have two degrees from The University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas but I have lived in the Houston area my whole life. Sports and exercise have been a part of my life since I was a child so it was easy to line my personal values with those of The Gym Station. Coaching kids as they stay active brings me great joy and I'm glad to be a part of The Gym Station team!

Miss Happy Feet

Hi! My name is Rashika, but your kids call me Miss Happy Feet. I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC but I decided to move to Houston, TX in 2016. I began my passion for dance at the age of 2 so I have 25 years of experience under my belt. I received my B.S. Degree in Special Education from Winston-Salem State University and I am currently a graduate student at Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching dance for 6 years and I absolutely love it. It gives me so much joy to see the kids enjoy dance class while learning many different styles of the art. My favorite part about teaching children is the "ah-ha" moment you see when they grasp and execute the task that you taught them. The smiles are a great addition as well.

Coach Butterfly

Hi my name is Cortney, but your children know me as Coach Butterfly. I am a graduate of The University of Houston with a Bachelor Degree in Kinesiology/Exercise Science, with a minor in Health Education. I have been involved in sports since the age of 5, playing softball, basketball, and volleyball. Working with your child is a very rewarding and exciting experience which brings me enjoyment and satisfaction when I see your child learn and grow as they master the art of sports and fitness.
Coach Rhino

My goal as a coach is to enlighten your children to be passionate about sports and to create a foundation of character.

Coach Batman

Hi, my name is Trevor, but all the kids know me as Coach Batman! From a young age I have always gravitated towards sports and any kind of activity that involved movement. I have an extreme passion for helping the youth and I have 5+ years experience teaching and training kids in various sports from all ages. I spend a lot of my free time helping and training the youth in my community where I run a Free Soccer Camp and Conditioning Camp in Katy, TX for middle school and high school students. As a kid I remembered those activities were the things I looked forward to the most. Working with the Gym Station is an ideal job for me where I can tap into my passion for sports and teaching.
