Coaches

Mary Purvis – Owner & Head Coach

NFGC was established in 1990 by the current owner/head coach Mary Purvis. Mary was a USGF competitive gymnast for 8 years at Rines Gymnastic Club in Buffalo, NY, where she began her coaching career at the age of 15. As the NY State Vaulting Champion, Mary received a gymnastic scholarship to the University of Clarion, PA where she went on to be the PA State Bar Champion, a Regional Balance Beam Finalist, and a National Collegiate Uneven Bar Finalist. After graduating in 1985 with a degree in communications, Mary coached in Virginia and then moved to Florida, where she established herself as one of state’s top coaches. Mary has worked with many successful gymnasts, including Lissy Smith, a 3-time NCAA All American, who placed 6th in the nation, which put her on the USA National Team. Mary assisted Lissy with her training in Colorado Springs at the US Olympic Training Center. Mary has also qualified Samantha Schueler to the National Team. Samantha was co-captain of the Jacksonville Roar Cheerleading Squad and was voted Rookie of the Year in 2004. She currently is a kindergarden teacher at Lake Asbury Elementary School. Samantha trained under Mary for 10 years!
