Hello! My name is James McPeak. I have been coaching gymnastics since 2015. I enjoy teaching because I love working with kids and helping them grow and learn!
In my spare time, I like to explore outside and read! I love LEGOs, computer programming, and playing music on the cello and the piano. I enjoy listening to music on the radio as well.
My name is Thomas McPeak. I have been coaching since 2015. I like to teach because I get to share my passion for fitness with fun, active kids!
In my spare time, I like to exercise and do karate, and I am delighted to be a Natural Balance Gymnastics coach.
How We Got Our Start
Coach Kelly began teaching younger teammates in high school. She has taught preschool through Level 10 gymnasts and has been a certified gymnastics judge. In 2000 she started Twisters Gymnastics, Inc., a successful gymnastics school and mobile program which operated until 2004. At that time Kelly made the decision to stay home with James and Thomas while continuing to judge and conduct local clinics part-time. In 2015 Coach Kelly decided to relaunch her mobile program with James and Thomas as her assistant coaches! Since then we have been traveling the Bucks-Mont area bringing joy to boys and girls at child care centers and schools! The next step was to open our own school, Naturally! We decided on Natural Balance Gymnastics to reflect our family’s values and philosophy.
Natural Balance Gymnastics mission is to build confidence in every child regardless of their fitness level. We provide a safe, fun environment to develop the joy of learning and fitness through a challenging and progressive motor education program. Our program is designed to enhance body awareness and increase strength, balance, and coordination while providing a strong foundation for all sports.
Children utilize all of their senses to learn through play and activity. Natural Balance Gymnastics incorporates multi-sensory education into our curriculum. Our program is customized to meet each child’s needs. We build self-esteem in children as they accomplish each physical skill. Our low student to teacher ratio allows us to provide each child with individual attention and encouragement.
