tESTIMONIALS

“Some of the many benefits Smart Moves provides at my gym that my instructors and I value include;

  • Ease of making lesson plans
  • Adds consistency to our      lesson plans
  • It allows us to communicate and instruct our teachers with online access when it's not always possible to have a teachers meeting with all staff at the same time in the same room.
  • Flexible to use for teachers who are gymnastics knowledgeable---- and for teachers who aren't.
  • A great communication tool for educating parents about what we teach and why.

When I heard Tumbl Trak was now associated with Smart Moves I wasn’t surprised.  Doug Davis has always been great at connecting with knowledgeable coaches, seeking ideas about teaching gymnastics skills and designing equipment that allows us to keep the sport safe.”

"Best part of using it?  The fact the games and skills are shown instantly out of each lesson plan. What an opportunity for teachers to just click on it and have it explained. It virtually does away with the dreaded weekly staff meeting to explain the lesson plan-that saves time and money!"

"Instructors are like customers - maybe it's money better spent to keep what you have instead of investing in new ones? Not to say a club should stop looking to hire but sometimes investing more in our current instructors might keep them around longer? 

The tools a coach needs are the drills for teaching skills. The more drills my staff know the more prepared they feel. The more prepared they feel the more confident they are. The more confident they are the happier they are. Your Smart Moves does exactly that.

I think your Smart Moves program is a great way of keeping instructors."

Tom Forster - USAG National Coach, Owner, Aerials Gymnastics Centers

"It is a pleasure to work with Jeff, The Smart Moves program and staff. For quite some time I was looking for a program that could be implemented in our gym to bring consistency among our coaches, especially for preschool and recreational classes.

Jeff and Smart Moves managed to develop a multi-level gymnastics lesson plan program that not only guide coaches across the National to teach more consistent and organized classes but also allow for better skill tracking, better development of the programs (seeking what each specific cliental needs), provide continuous education to coaches and instructors and make parents and professionals more comfortable with the classes development plan, knowing that these lessons are developed and tested by several experienced professional before been placed in practice.

I found Smart Moves gives our professionals the confidence they need to teach each position, skill and technique, especially if they are new to the gymnastics field. Meanwhile, give the parents the trust they look for because their kids are practicing a pre-developed, reviewed and studied lesson plan that gives the programs a more consistent face and faster development of the young athletes. 

Thank you Jeff Lulla and Smart Moves"

“When I first saw the Smart Moves concept, I thought that it was the innovative future of Curriculum management.  It is the way future classes and coach/instructor training should be done.  It is the only customizable program out there that allows you to add your own content, as we expect to do”.  

Doug Davis, Founder & President of Tumbl Trak

"We have been searching for an app or a program to track our students for years!!!!  And now with Smart Moves it's finally at the click of a button! THANK GOD!!! Jenny has been so patient and amazing! The gymnastics curriculum content has been so useful too! Has made my job super easy! Before I was doing what you have created, only the hard way! I would set everything up, store the pics, make a lesson plan, I have a ton of folders inundating my computer! 

Your program has condensed years of my work into one program!"

Kellie Henriques, Bay Gymnastics 


  

"It allows a description and video demonstration of everything in your head or curriculum. You can then put those progressions into whatever order you like. It allows essentially to coach by numbers. We just use the stock lesson plans and those are very good. It makes training much easier as you can specify people study and be informed even before taking your own time to train. Just like YouTube makes me a fairly good mechanic, smart moves will allow years of progress in months with a willing pupil."

"I just signed up for Smart moves and absolutely love it!!  I own a mobile gymnastics company and one of the hardest things is training and I find your website fantastic for that.  I had never heard of your company until Tumbl Trak e-mailed us they were working with Smart Moves.  I found the website to be very educational and user friendly.  I will be really encouraging my staff to take advantage of the wonderful training Smart Moves provides."

Jeff, thank you for your time, energy and dedication to putting these programs together . You are always available to answer my questions, have helped me transition from Fun & Fit into Smart Moves. 

I wanted to thank you for continuing to provide us with our Fun & Fit Charts and supplies. We have been using the Fun & Fit Program for years and we are so happy to be able to continue using Fun & Fit together with your new adventure, Smart Moves . 

The entire Fun & Fit Gymnastics poster reward system that you created works so well with Smart Moves . Our kids love check off day and are excited to get their stars every month. You made it so easy to combine the two programs together by creating a list of skills to correspond from the Fun & Fit charts to Smart Moves videos. It is so easy to click on the video to see the skill and progressions. By using Smart Moves we can review the skill right on the gym floor. I also started to put the videos into their own separate lesson plan format to make it easier for the staff to have all the skills for each level and event at their fingertips. 

The Fun & Fit skill charts and posters are so important to our program . Last week when I re ordered my supplies, I had a chance to catch up with Dori. That’s when I realized that a lot of the gyms using Smart Moves were unaware of the Fun & Fit Poster reward system and that it was available to them. These programs work so well together . Anyway to get the word out to anyone using Smart Moves to check out Fun & Fit too ? It is so easy and will enhance their program. 

Looking forward to hearing from you !

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Fun & Fit Gymnastics courses. They definitely helped me think through how to create progressions for learning new skills. I like that there are questions at the end of each lesson to check yourself on the knowledge you are learning."
