Tropical Twisters Gymnastics
Tropical Twisters Gymnastics owner and head coach Lisa Johnson knows how to compete. During her 15-year career as a gymnast, she became an Elite-level gymnast, was ranked in the top five in Florida, and was honored as an All-American and All-SEC teammate. From 1975 to 1982, she qualified for every regional and national championship, and in 1983, she received Auburn University’s Athlete of the Year award. Today, as head coach, she uses all that expertise to help gymnasts in levels 1–10 to sharpen their skills inside her 7,000-square-foot facility. She, along with fellow coach Mike Johnson, also introduces new students to the art of gymnastics through introductory classes, which keep them from executing uneven-bar routines in their parents' bedroom closets.
