Alana Lepine

Portsmouth, NH

Medically diagnosed as a failure to thrive as a 3-year-old, getting involved in gymnastics played a large part in bringing Alana to full health and a lifetime of success. The sport helped her build the strength she was lacking due to her health condition, so much so that she continued in gymnastics for life. Following an accomplished career as a competitive gymnast in western Canada, she came to the northeast attending UNH on an athletic scholarship.

Alana began coaching at the age of 14, pursuing multiple levels of certification through the Gymnastics Canada system. While at UNH Alana studied Kinesiology; Pedagogy with a focus on gymnastics instruction. Through her degree she received further training in the breakdown of exercise elements, lesson programming, and adaptive movement. She assisted with the community gymnastics program run by the UNH team and later joined the staff at Atlantic Gymnastics Training Center, serving as a class instructor. She became the Recreational and Preschool Program Director after graduation in 1999, and coached all levels of gymnastics from parent-and-tot through competitive team. With over 20 years of gymnastics teaching experience, she took over the Adaptive Program in October 2015.

Alana believes firmly that everyone can move and succeed. She uses gymnastics as her vehicle to provide movement for all. Each session is customized to the individual's unique needs, be it physical, cognitive, or behavioral. She works with a diverse population of individuals, and achieves goals such as: gaining upper and lower body strength, core stability, confidence, body and spatial awareness, improved processing and motor planning capabilities, calming stimulation, coordination, increased patience, and adaptability to differing circumstances. Fundamental movement and strength forms the core of all her classes.
