Coach Adrianne started gymnastics and dance at the age of 3 years old. At the age of 6, she qualified for and joined the women’s gymnastics team at the prestigious McKeesport Turners Gymnastics Academy in McKeesport, PA. By the age of 9, Coach Adrianne had won numerous local, state and regional meets. While pursuing her gymnastics education, Coach Adrianne also took an interest in power tumbling and began training simultaneously in both disciplines. By the age of 12, she had won several national competitions in both gymnastics and power tumbling.
After relocating back to Louisiana, and while continuing her training in gymnastics and power tumbling, Coach Adrianne also began her training with the New Orleans Acrobatic Team under the strict instruction of Russian world champion acrobat, Igor Ashkenazi, and Polish world champion acrobat, trampolinist and power tumbler, Jurek Pol. Coach Adrianne went on to compete in sport-acrobatics and won many national titles.
Having dedicated her youth, teen and young adult years to training in gymnastics, power tumbling and sport-acrobatics, Coach Adrianne retired from competing at the age of 29 and began teaching.
In the Summer of 2018, Coach Adrianne formed the Riverbend Gymnastics Xcel Team, who’s athletes went on to place in the top 4 All Around gymnasts at USAG sanctioned meets (not one, but two 1st places!). USAG’s Xcel program is highly competitive, and placing in the top 4 All Around for their very first competition season, is a testament to how dedicated Coach Adrianne is to her students. Riverbend Gymnastics LRG Team has proven to be a force to be reckoned with during this current competitive season, having walked away with numerous 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
Riverbend is very excited about the 2019-2020 competitive season!
Coach Adrianne has introduced a new level of skills and difficulty to Riverbend’s competitive team and has inspired the students to push past fear and doubt.
Whether it is recreational or competitive gymnastics, tumbling or acrobats, Riverbend’s students receive only the best training from a very qualified coaching staff.
