About Ms. Ingrid:
Thanks to the City of Trussville, Ms.Ingrid was able to open a Gymnastics program in the community of Trussville beginning August 18, 2014. She looks forward to meeting you and working and growing with the Trussville community.
Here is her Story:
Ms. Ingrid has been teaching Gymnastics for 30 years.
She was a National Rhythmic Gymnast, as well as National Diver in her home country of Chile. In Chile she received a degree in Physical Education, and began teaching 3 years of Artistic Gymnastics to the National Team in Chile.
By fate she landed in Birmingham in 1987, married, and now has 4 grown daughters. In America, she began her passion to teach immediately by taking a head coach position at Mountain Brook Gymnastics for 6 years.
Afterwards, Ingrid decided to establish her own business. She briefly taught at W.J.Christian school. However the school was not able to accommodate the growing program.
Fortunately the Don A Hawkins Recreation Center supported Ingrid's Gymnastics for 14 years. This recreational gymnastics program produced many happy gymnasts and proud parents. In 2006 her USGA sanctioned competitive team (levels 1- 8) produced a handful of State Champions!
As well, for the past 20 year Ms. Ingrid has worked and continues to work with numerous Pre-schools and Daycare centers bringing fun safe and imaginative gymnastics to toddlers all over Birmingham!
Currently Ingrid has a permanent location in Eastlake, Ingrid's Gymnastics, right across from East Lake Park. The Gym has been open since 2008 and has become a close and ever growing family of parents students and
Ms. Ingrid is now very excited to also be a part of the community of Trussville.
