About this pro

Hi My name is Cara I'm 28 years old and am from Long Island NY.  I began gymnastics at seven and I have been flipping around ever since!  I have worked at Five Star Gymnastics Academy, DC Gymnastics while in college in Albany NY and Gold Star Gymnastics when I studied abroad in Australia.   I currently work at Spring in Lawrence NY and offer private lessons and group lessons.  I offer a fun postitive and challenging environment to help my students reach their goals! 

I love the sport of gymnastics & when I am able to assist a student in getting a new skill it really makes my day.  I love encouraging my students and assisting in instilling confidence in them

    My daughters improved so much with Cara. Her gymnastics lessons were safe, fun and really built up their skills and confidence. I highly recommend her as an instructor for all gymnastics levels.

  • Mrs Everett

    Cara was excellent working with my girls. I was surprised to see my daughter who was very afraid of trying new things got so comfortable and was able to successfully do back handsprings and all, this happened because of how Cara is able to give other options to help her get comfortable. From the girls first lesson with Cara, they couldn’t wait to go back each week. I would recommend Cara to anyone, she is awesome and I really like the way she teaches. My husband who observed one of the lessons was impressed at how Cara had them going the entire lesson, he was very pleased. Cara is amazing, my girls can’t wait to start classes again. Thank you Cara

    Coach Cara is phenomenal! Absolutely consistent the perfect balance of structure, sharp technique, comprehensible instruction and lots of fun. My children remain enthusiastic and motivated throughout each lesson, even the most difficult techniques. A pleasure to work with for both my son and daughter.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I meet a new student I first ask them to do a few basic gymnastics moves to see their level.  I then ask them their goals.  Did you see an awesome youtube video and want to learn how to do that?  We'll do that.  Do you want to make it on the school team?  Okay then lets start working on getting all those skills you need to get on the team.  Is this for fun with your friends?  Then lets have a great time together while encouraging each other to reach our highest potential

I am USAG Certified & I have been coaching for ten years

How did you get started teaching?

I was offered a job by my old coach! I absolutely loved it so much that throughout my life (college, full time job) I have continued to coach on the side. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages and levels. From four years old to eighteen. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I helped a young boy learn a backhandspring in his first gymnastics lesson which he has incorprotated into his break dancing routine.  It was very cool! 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a couch you can trust, that is a huge part of getting new skills! Trusting that the coach knows you and your abilities. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Really think about what they want to get out of the lesson and articulate that to the coach! We can then work on a game plan together both in the gym and steps you can take at home to improve your strength.
