Marie Mastrodonato of M&M Elite Gymnastics Academy dedicated 16 years to her competitive gymnastics career, training at some of the most prestigious gyms in the country. She trained and competed at the highest amateur level, and was offered a spot on the Ohio State University Gymnastics Team. Unfortunately, a career ending injury stopped her journey just before she could join. Marie found that moment to be a blessing in disguise, for it led her to a new found love of coaching.

In her 5 years of coaching, Marie has taught children of all ages and abilities – from Park Districts to National Training Centers. By the age of 22, she opened up a Mobile Tumbling Program which has allowed her to expand her reach and share her passion with students in all different sports. Some of which include gymnastics, dance, cheer, martial arts, special needs movement, and more. Her unique and well-rounded experience provides her with the proper knowledge to help students reach their fullest potential.
