Gymnastics and Flexibility Coach
Hi! My name is Beth Higginbotham. I am a 36 year old identical twin who loves to teach any sport and bake yummy healthy treats
I got my Bachelors from ASU in 1999 Exercise Science with an emphasis in Wellness and was a former competitive gymnast of 10 years from age 4-14. I have been teaching gymnastics for over 10 years – ages 14 months to whatever age ; ) oldest is 53 so far. I also do gymnastic seminars at several cross fit gym and other places in AZ. I have a lot of jobs, but the longest has been teaching swimming lessons to all ages (6mo to elderly)…22 years now. I have competed in diving, track, snowboarding, sprint triathlons, and powerlifting. I competed with WABDL for 3 years and was a state & world champion powerlifter. I also taught snowboarding for 3 years at Sunrise Ski Resort.
Presently I teach special needs children in every area that I coach: parkour/free-running, swimming, diving, gymnastics and personal training, tumbling, cheer lessons, and a lot of adult private lessons for any sport/skill someone wants to learn. My friend and I started our own kids/teen parkour/cross-fit class that we have done for over 2 years. Circus school of AZ also hires me for performances and I made it on American Ninja Warrior this year, but was not able to compete due to a badly broken finger
I just got back from Ninja Warrior training camp in NJ and CT 3 weeks ago and that was a blast! While I drive all over town for in-home swim lessons and personal training, you can still find me at Desert Devils Gymnastics in Mesa 6 days a week. I am almost finished with my Myopractics certification and will be starting my own practice soon. A new Sport I took up this year: Tough Lotus Aerial Fitness
