The leaves might not be changing here in South Florida, but we are well into the fall season and fall always brings change, breathing new life, new opportunities and new developments both inside and outside of the gym. There have been so many exciting developments at Twisters lately, it’s hard to name just a few. From welcoming back some favorite coaches we’ve missed while they’ve grown their families, sending our graduating seniors off to incredible universities on full athletic scholarships, watching our team gymnasts gearing up for the start of the competitive season and so much more.
With change always comes growth, and one thing you can always count on at Twisters is growth. Of course we see it with our gymnasts, from the tiniest Twisters first learning to balance on their tippy toes, to our most seasoned competitors winning national championships. But it’s not just the gymnasts who grow here. It’s all of us. It’s our coaches, our staff and our organization as a whole. The catalyst for our incredible journey of growth over our 25+ years has always been remarkable leadership. In this month’s blog, we’re proud to highlight the “leader of our ship”, President, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner, Clayon Kent.
If you’ve spent any time at Twisters, you know his face. If you’ve worked with Clayton, you’ve been inspired by his vision. A loving husband and father of three, Clayton has been a part of our organization for decades and has become a true leader who embodies the values of Twisters and inspires others to do the same. He is spirited, compassionate, competitive, a life-long learner and does whatever it takes to get the job done. He has guided Twisters through our hardest challenges and most exciting successes and done so with grace, clarity, integrity, and of course, a sense of humor. We could go on and on about why we love Clayton and are so lucky to have him at the helm of Twisters, but we think it would be more interesting to hear about Clayton’s Twisters journey from his perspective.
