- I was raised in Nashville, TN
- I went to the same gymnastics gym as Miley Cyrus!
Hello! My name is DeNae Mathis, aka Coach DeNae! I am a dynamic and energetic gymnastics instructor who's been leading classes for almost 7 years! I've worked all around New York City with the goal of helping young, beginner gymnastics build their strength and confidence through weekly and/or monthly lessons!
I fell in love with Gymnastics at the age of 3 years old and it didn't take long before I wanted to be just like my teachers. At the age of 15 when I transitioned to cheerleading, I began training as an assistant coach at my local gym. That is when I gained a new found love of the technical side of gymnastics and youth fitness. I believe gymnastics provides children with core skills that they will need throughout their life. It allows children to gain confidence through performance, repetition, creativity and helps lay a strong foundation for any other sport.
