More About Coach Bethany

I have been teaching Gymnastics and tumbling for 2 decades. I started with mommy and me classes ages 18 months to 3yrs and went on to coaching levels 1-6 from beginner to competitive artistic gymnastics and advanced TOPs (talent opportunity program) athletes over the years. Several of the athletes I worked with received full ride gymnastic scholarships. Some have moved onto becoming high school cheerleaders or competitive divers. I currently run the Strength and conditioning program for Turn N Burn, a club diving team at riverside city college; ages 9-17. I am the founder of The Fit Appeal, which is my personal training business in Irvine ca, located inside of Primal Fitness center. I do one on one and (small) group personal training. I specialize in strength and conditioning, weight loss, sports specific and general fitness. I enjoy coaching tumbling on the side as a hobby, my business is called 4Matumbling. I am very hands on, and value the relationship with my athletes and teaching the basic mechanics of body awareness and skills. I have worked at precision gymnastics, realis gymnastics, and Olympia gymnastics. I do private lessons and cheer tumbling lessons, I truly enjoy teaching! I am a certified personal trainer, I have my CPR/first aide cert, and KAT (kinder accreditation for teachers) certification.

I competed in dance, gymnastics and softball as a child and young adult. I advanced to level 9 in gymnastics at age 15 in Nashville, Tennessee. I played competitive softball for 10 years also. I moved to California After high school where I started my first coaching job at age 18. I went onto college in riverside, ca where I competed in diving at RCC. I joined the army at age 24 and was successful at leading PT to the soldiers. I was the combative champ at basic training and learned many leadership qualities. I am Grateful for my experiences through my years of training as a competitive gymnast, as it molded me into the human I am today!

I always start with Evaluating each student to learn specific goals for any timelines that the student or parent may have for their athlete. From there I test the flexibility and conditioning of the student to learn where their current level of experience may be and look for any areas of needed improvement to advance the athletes skill set. Strength and flexibility play a huge roll in the success of growth and change. I am very much a basics coach, as you cannot advance further without the proper basic understanding of how to control the body and pass through correct body positions. Every student is different and has different needs. I always cater to each person individually based on experience and goals.

First session was a success. My daughter enjoyed it so much she asked for 2-3 sessions a week.

Very patient and effective. My daughter was very nervous but needed to learn some basics but she progressed much faster than I expected. Bethany has great intuition and knows how to work with kids.

Bethany was on time and brought all the matts and props needed for an at-home gymnastics class. She is an excellent coach who clearly knows her craft. She was encouraging and was able to help my daughter master a skill she's been working on for months. I highly recommend Bethany!

Coach Bethany is a great coach! She’s very patient and knowledgeable. After one session, I already saw huge growth in my daughter’s skills.

Knowledgeable and patient. My daughter is a beginner in gymnastics and she loved working with Coach Bethany. Coach gave her great pointers to improve. Great experience!

Coach Bethany is a great coach. She is fun and energetic. My daughter got the personal attention she never got from group training. She felt like she improved a lot and had a lot of fun at the same time. I highly recommend Coach Bethany.

Bethany is really amazing. She has helped my daughter build her strength and confidence in conquering new tricks. She has really enjoyed and grown from her sessions with Bethany.

Bethany was amazing.. prepared and knowledgeable and completely focused on making a safe and fun lesson for my daughter. I would highly recommend her- very professional and great attitude!!

Coach Bethany is a force of nature. She is super positive while providing specific instruction and feedback. She explains, demonstrates and uses repetition for learning. She was cognizant of how my daughter needed more visual examples and adjusted her coaching accordingly. She was able to help my 10 year old progress with her back handspring in 1 session by breaking down the skill and emphasizing fundamentals. She also explained what she was doing to me and gave us home activities to help with her overall flexibility. My daughter immediately asked to go back after the session and was talking about it for days after.

We recently had our first session with coach Bethany, and it went great. She is very positive and a very skill relatable coach. My daughter Madison is looking forward to many more sessions with her.

We had a great session with Coach Bethany! After just a couple minutes I knew that she had spent time perfecting the trade of coaching. She definitely knew what she was doing and was able to tailor her style of coaching to fit the learning style of my child. She was able to make my child more aware of her body and how to use it properly in gymnastics, as well as teach valuable skills. Definitely very happy with Coach Bethany and would recommend her to anyone looking to become a better athlete!

She really knows her stuff and is kind, patient, and receptive!

Coach Bethany is the bomb! She is very knowledgeable when it comes to body awareness and how it applies to peak performance in her sport, and it comes from her versatile and extensive background in gymnastics and dance. In just my first session, she helped me a great deal with my technique. She pays very close attention to me and she can quickly assesses where help is needed, then she breaks it down to some exercises or tips that can be done to strengthen and increase my skill in that area. Plus, she's very enthusiastic and fun to work with, and she knows how to keep you motivated and excited about reaching your goals. Bethany is an awesome coach! I totally recommend her to anyone!

Bethany was great if she could train an old fat guy like myself she can train anybody.

I was looking for a private instructor for my daughter to help her with upcoming cheer tryouts. My 14 year old daughter has been in cheering and gymnastics for 7 years, but still needed help with her back hand springs, round-off back hand springs, and her back tuck. That is when I was referred to Beth and couldn’t be happier. Beth is excellent with teaching technique and really emphasis the mechanics with helpful drills. She is also very encouraging and makes us feel very comfortable. My daughter will ask for help with a certain skill and Beth will take her time and show her and encourages execution of each element. After 10 sessions my daughter tried out for cheer and made the Junior Varsity team her freshmen year. I believe she would not have made the team if it wasn't for her one on one training with Beth. I highly recommend her to anybody who has a son or daughter in athletics. Sincerely, Brandy Chamberland
