Classic Staff



With a combined 40+ years of coaching experience, Classic’s owners have created a nationally competitive, award winning gymnastics program in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment. Classic’s goal for every gymnast, preschool through level 10, is to nurture self confidence and build a strong mind-body connection helping each child to reach their individual potential.

Bryon Hough


My coaching experience includes preschoolers to National Team members. My staff and I have coached 70+ athletes who have earned division I scholarships. I am currently serving on regional, and national committees and have done so for nearly 25 years. Some of my coaching credentials can be accessed here.

My spare time is devoted to my family. My wife Tanya is a former gymnast, coach, and is a Physical Therapist. My daughter is a stand out soccer goalie and is in college. My son loves all sports, especially soccer and basketball.  I have also spent time coaching both my kids in soccer as well as being involved in their sports organizations as a volunteer or board member. I also love to travel, cook, and read U.S. history books.
