Program Director (Co-Owner)
Tammy McLean has been in love with gymnastics since she first saw Nadia Comăneci compete in the 1976 Olympics. She has been involved in the greatest sport ever since.
Her parents built equipment in their backyard and enrolled Tammy in Rockland County, NY. She started coaching in that same gym when she was 17 and has now been coaching for over 30 years. Tammy has experience in the classroom as well, running an academic preschool, Kindergarten, and working with children with special needs. Vault was her best event and still her favorite to coach.
Tammy and her husband, Todd, owned and operated Flip Factory Gymnastics in Hayden, Idaho for nearly two decades before her extended family encouraged them to settle in Florida.
Flip Factory hailed many state champions, regional competitors, and scholarship recipients.
She is so excited to be a part of the new Apollo Beach Gymnastics Academy and grow an amazing program here in the Suncoast area.
Todd enjoyed gymnastics as a child, but decided to focus solely on football to finish his high school career at East Valley High School in 1990. He later studied Sports Psychology and Physical Therapy at Eastern Washington University.
Todd met his wife Tammy in 1994 at a gymnastics training facility in North Spokane, Washington. He started coaching part time, and he and Tammy have been coaching together for over 25 years. They started Flip Factory Gymnastics in a small town in Eastern Washington in 1998. Shortly thereafter, they outgrew this facility and reopened in North Idaho, running the facility for nearly 2 decades.
Over the years, Todd has coached gymnastics and cheer at several high schools and colleges. He's instructed and spoken at numerous seminars and Gymnastics and Cheer Congresses. Todd has also been a guest coach at many gymnastics and cheer camps.
One of Todd's unforgettable moments was when he taught tumbling at his favorite college,
THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON..GO DAWGS!!
