With experience, a leader can demonstrate proper form and technique that ensures a stable, safe, and constant level of progression for any young athlete. For Cynthya, coaching gymnastics goes far beyond that.
Having competed nationally & internationally at a young age, Cynthya was fortunate to have benefitted from all that this sport has to offer first hand. Each competition was taken as a new challenge and brought its own glory or learned lessons. For her though, the medals, trophies, and accolades were all nice, but the real enjoyment she had in the sport came from the daily training, the learning of new things, the life lessons, and the travels and friendships that were built along the way.
She holds a Physical Education degree, which is why she emphasizes and encourages psychomotor learning or movement exploration to promote health and physical competence – the seed to achieve physical literacy and engagement in physical activities for life.
Continuing her involvement in the gymnastics community, Cynthya became a certified National Coach in Mexico prior to moving to Canada. Being an avid learner, she took Summer Coaching School in Cuba for 3 years, gaining an Advanced Coaching certification and she is also a certified Canadian Coach (NCCP) as well. She holds an International Judging certification (Brevet Judge) by the “Federation Internationale de Gymnastique” and this has added to her experience of knowing what to look for in athletes to help drive them to the next level.
Understanding how important it is the use of the right techniques at an early age in order to proper develop a more complex skills, and that minor changes in technique may have repercussions throughout many aspects of an individual’s performance and development, she is able to teach athletes the ideal and efficient methods to support their goals and objectives for a successful gymnastics career.
