Loucadia, aka “Cadia,” has over 15 years of gymnastics and cheerleading coaching experience. She was formally a high-level USAG trained gymnast, who transitioned into a collegiate level cheerleader, a high school gymnastics judge and cheer coach, as well as an all-star cheerleading coach.
She believes that the Gymnastics gym should be an environment which is centered in love. A safe space where athletes of all ages, different backgrounds and walks of life are welcomed, embraced, and encouraged to be their authentic selves. She thrives in truly connecting with every athlete that she encounters and making an impact on their lives inside and outside of the gym.

Cadia is a natural born teacher and student, and it is evident in her co-learning coaching style. Although she is coaching and teaching her athletes while pushing them to the best of their abilities, she’s simultaneously learning each individual athlete’s personal strengths and challenges to better equip them with skills and confidence to grow far past the world of gymnastics!

My favorite thing about coaching is watching my students light up when they get a new skill. The excitement is truly contagious!
My goal as a coach is to help my students earn new skills and graduate to the next level while maintaining safety and having lots of fun:)

I have been inspiring young gymnasts since 1993.  When my competitive career ended, my coaching career began. I am a former EMT and retired State Correctional Sergeant.  My years of training and competing in an gym that was like a second home to me has encouraged me to help each gymnast truly believe in themselves. I believe in positive coaching and have motivated several of my former students to become gymnastics instructors.

“The best part about being a coach is seeing my students smiles”
