Ellen Gibbie

Owner - Gym Director & Head Coach

Hello, my name is Ellen. I am married with two children! I love children and gymnastics alike. I am a Safety and Risk certified Professional Instructor Member through USA Gymnastics with over twenty-five years gymnastics experience. Prior to working as the Team director for Gymnastiks Unlimited, I was a team gymnast and coach. I am a strong believer in education and continuing to grow in your knowledge base. "Who dares to teach, must never cease to learn" is one of my favorite quotes! I have attended numerous Hands On training courses, National and Regional USAG training's, spent weeks at the International Gymnastics Camp of Pennsylvania and USAG Training camp held at the Texas Olympic training center, where I was taught from some of the best coaches in the world! Through coaching, I have found that I utilize my Occupational Therapy degree daily, along with the experience I learned through owning a Licensed Child Care. I feel it has given me a better understanding of the physical, and mental aspects of children. This is such an important part of gymnastics for strength, discipline and self-confidence! Through NorthPointe Gymnastics, I hope each child is given the ability to have a fun and exciting time learning the sport that can/will benefit them for the rest of their lives! I thank God every day to have the opportunity to bring a fun and healthy environment to the children of our community. Thank you for your support as continue to grow NorthPointe Gymnastics!

Zoie Stapel

Zoie Stapel

Rec/Preschool Coach

Hello, my name is Zoie. I am currently a competitive Level 6 gymnast for NorthPointe Gymnastics and love competing. I started my experience with NorthPointe Gymnastics when it opened in the little building, and have not wanted to leave. I have been a cheerleader for many years and currently am through Hesperia High School. Being a competitive gymnast has allowed me to view the progressions needed for children to learn to grow their skills and become a better gymnast. I also have a lot of experience with kids through babysitting, and various other summer programs I have volunteered for. Miss Ellen was my officially first gymnastic coach when I started at the age of three years old, and I hope to bring the joy to your kids that gymnastics has brought to me.

I actively work with the local 4H kids through equestrian and drill team where I have learned to teach responsibility and hard work. I have my Occupational Therapy Assistant degree as well as my certificate in Massage Therapy which allows me to be able to understand how the human development and body mechanics play a part in gymnastics. With my gymnastics training and continued education through USAG I look forward to coaching your children and assisting with their growth in not only gymnastics but as a child as well.
