More About Coach Lain

My name is Coach Lain. I am a traveling performance coach for cheer, specializing in tumbling technique, overcoming mental blocks and helping athletes understand their performance-related fears. I help both beginner and advanced athletes with their technique to fortify their skills and strengthen their confidence.

Since 2013, Coach Lain Tumble & Technique has operated under the belief that "Technique bridges the gap between confidence and skill". I believe that having solid technique not only keeps athletes safe, but also gives them the confidence they need to advance in their skills. I have been a cheer coach for over 18 years, coaching hundreds of athletes, ages 5-21, on their jump, stunt and tumbling skills. I've coached for high school and all-star teams, and was a competitive male cheerleader in high school.

I love teaching technique and love passing on that knowledge to enthusiastic, hungry young athletes! Knowing that I'm keeping them safe and teaching them body awareness to prevent injury makes me proud to do what I do!

Besides the joy and satisfaction of teaching countless athletes proper technique, I have a few athletic highlights:

2001 USA National Champion - Individual Cheer

2001 GSSA Aloha Bowl 3rd Place Champion - Individual Cheer

2001 AACCA All-American Cheerleader - Performed in the NFL Pro Bowl Half-Time Show

2004 GSSA National Champions - All Girl Jr. Lvl. 3 National Title - Head Coach/Choreographer

2005 Best Camp Instructor - JAMZ Camp Staff Vote - Turlock, CA

I don't believe in the "One Size Fits All" lesson plan, so I like to cater my lessons to suit the needs of the individual athlete. However, for the sake of explanation, a typical session begins with essential stretching and warm-up drills (such as backbends, handstands, round-offs and back handsprings). Most of my clients seek tumbling technique help, so we would then move onto the core focus of the session. This of course depends on the athlete's requested area of focus, whether that's standing skills, passes, or cleaning up existing skills. I also teach cheer, jumping and stunting technique, which will be implemented as needed. Finally, I like to end my sessions (no matter the focus) with conditioning and strength training to solidify the importance of staying fit and healthy, and to further teach body awareness. Strength training also helps athletes gain control over their skills.

Client Reviews

Coach Lain was amazing. He took the girls slowly in order to make sure that they learned proper technique. He also took his time to discuss fear and the brain, which helped one of the girls begin to conquer her fear of tumbling! I will definitely be using him often for my dance students.

Coach Lain has helped me not only grow as a tumbler, but as a person as well. He's been there for me through the fun times, the happy times, and the hard times. He's taught me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things and to, for a few seconds, lose the fear I have because that's what holds me back more than anything. He's not only been a mentor, but a friends at the times I've needed him. He's truly an amazing coach and person altogether, and someone I can talk to anything about and know that he truly cares. I'm honored with the opportunity to get to know him and get coached by him, and am truly blessed he's such a big part of my life.
Coach Lain is the best you're going to find for your tumbling instructor! He uses positive reinforcement, is the best with describing the technique of the skill trying to be achieved, and not only an amazing coach, but such a great friend! He's hilarious and makes every lesson so enjoyable, all while getting you your skill. He cares about his athletes well being and is a humble person. WE LOVE COACH LAIN!!!
I can't say enough amazing things about Coach Lain! He is a fantastic coach - he's so dedicated, he's committed to the safety and success of each athlete, is a stickler for proper form, does a great job explaining the how and why of the mechanics, he encourages them to always work their hardest and, most importantly, he cares about the athletes as people. He's become a mentor and confidante to my daughter and a friend to me. He goes above and beyond the task at hand which is perfecting the next skill; he has helped on many levels both personally and as an athlete. Coach Lain is an all around wonderful human being and we are lucky to be able to work with him!
Coach Lain helped my daughter Ally prepare for her high school Cheer tryouts. He identified quickly what skills she needed to improve and helped her immensely in a short period of time. Most importantly, Coach Lain's positive and supportive approach gave Ally the confidence to perform at her best during tryouts. Thanks so much for helping Ally make her team!! PS -- I found Coach Lain easy to work with, flexible on scheduling and a great communicator. A+ in this department
Not only is Coach Lain extremely professional and serious, but he's also hilarious. His witty jokes and positive encouragement make learning to tumble and stunt pressure-free and fun. Because of his positivity, I have gotten more confident in my cheerleading skills. :)
Coach Lain is truly a positive coach. He keeps the workouts fun and focused. Lain knows how to break down a skill so that it can be refined and sharpened; he has the strength to support and properly spot the movements. My daughter come away feeling strong and confident in her skills. We are so happy to be working with him!
Coach Lain is amazing! He teaches you so much and he makes it not boring. I would really recommend going to him for tumbling and any cheer skills!
I have had the pleasure of meeting Coach Lain through my daughters cheer gym. Lain has been working with my 13 year old daughter in strengthening her level 3 tumbling skills and working towards level 4 skills. I find Lain's coaching style to be extremely supportive, nurturing, positive and motivating. His advise is based on his experience and the overall safety of the cheer athlete. It is obvious that he wants my child to not only succeed but to develop a strong confidence in herself and her skills. I highly recommend Lain. My daughter and her cheer gym are extremely lucky to be able to work with him.
