About Gym Quest Gymnastics
Behind Gym Quest
Gym Quest has been serving the Richmond and surrounding communities since 2001.
Our symbol of a "stylized" Olympic Torch is especially important to us as constant reminder that You Never Know What You Can Do Until You TRY.
Our founder Coach Doug spent months in the hospital due to an exceedingly rare illness called Guillian Barre Syndrome. He was completely paralyzed and in a coma for months. His family, friends, and community mobilized around him and through amazing Drs., prayers and working together he was able to come out right before Easter - the time of rebirth. When he got out of the hospital and was learning how to walk again he was voted by his peers from across the country and overseas as one worthy to carry the Olympic Torch. He won the vote, and proudly ran the Olympic Torch through a section of Washington, D.C. for the 2000 Winter Games.
His spirit of determination to fight his illness and come out on top was an inspiration to thousands. Those ideals of determination, trying your best when it's tough or seems impossible, and selfless service to others are what Gym Quest strives to embody each and every day.
We have taught hundreds of athletes from 15 months to 55 years old. We have had athletes compete in national and international competitions. We have hosted international athletes. We have hosted international coaches and judges. We place athletes in college programs for NCAA, NAIGC, and USAIGC college gymnastics programs across the country.
