Life Lessons

Having your child in an organized sport teaches time management and life skills. Your child will learn to socialize with people of all ages. Gymnastics and Tumbling is conditioning of the body and mind. Your child will learn self-discipline which will carry over into school and other sports.


Coaching gymnastics has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I feel a great sense of pride and honor, knowing that whenever a child has accomplished a new skill I have played a part. This goes on every day in a gymnastics center.
I have trained over forty nationally ranked gymnasts during my twenty plus years of coaching. Twelve of my athletes ranked top twenty in the nation, seven of them were in the top ten at the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Nationals, and nine of my athletes have gone on to college to continue their gymnastic careers.
In 2006, I was the Lebanese men’s head coach for the Pan Arab games hosted by the nation of Algeria.
I was USA Gymnastics State Chair of Michigan men’s program from 2005 until 2011.
In August 2009, one of my most successful gymnast went to the Visa National Championships in Dallas, TX. He graduated from the University of Nebraska on an athletic scholarship. In 2013, another very successful athlete of mine finished 10th on the High Bar and took home a Bronze medal for vault at the J.O. National Championships. He now attends U of M and is a proud member of the Mens Gymnastics team.  I am honored to know that I played a part in their success.
I have traveled all over the nation and halfway around the world to hear those three magic words “I DID IT!” I believe the reason for my success is due to the fact that I love my job, I am passionate about what I do, and most importantly I have fun doing it. An individual will do his best if he enjoys doing it, which is why fLipSpot’s main philosophy is FUN. This philosophy applies to the entire fLipSpot organization.

Safe, Qualified Coaching

All of our instructors are experienced and ready to put a smile on your child’s face. Our coaches are USA Gymnastics Safety Certified and background checked so you can rest easy knowing that your child is in safe hands.

Build Self-Esteem

We create short and long terms goals for our tumblers. Some easy and some more difficult and each time that goal is achieved, your child’s self-confidence will increase.

Alternative to Boredom

fLipSpot offers a fun alternative to sitting on the couch and watching TV or playing video games. We help counteract the deadly “Video Game Finger” Disease.

Comfortable Atmosphere

It’s not all about the kids at fLipSpot. We know how exhausting your day can be. That is why we offer you a choice on whether to watch your child’s class or kick back in one of our comfy couches and chairs (Lake Orion only). fLipSpot is also a HotSpot. Sit back, have a cup of coffee on the house (Lake Orion only), log-in and relax.
