Our Coaches

Meet the Team

Kim’s Gym prides itself on finding the best coaches around. Each of our coaches is trained in teaching gymnastics and understands the importance of patience, an upbeat attitude, and constant enthusiasm. They not only teach the kids gymnastics or cheerleading, but they have fun with the kids…isn’t that what it is all about? Our coaches are CPR/AED Certified.

Kim Laudenheimer Lindauer



Hi Everyone! My name is Kim Lindauer and I am the owner of Kim’s Gym. I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas in 1998, and never left this city. I am married to Jared Lindauer, and together, we have three sons, Miles who was born in October of 2010, Ari who was born in March of 2013, and Levi who was born in April of 2016. I began gymnastics when I was three years old. I started to compete in the 3rd grade and continued to do so through level 8 and my 9th grade year. In High School, I was involved in cheerleading and was a member of our dance team. At UT, I studied Corporate Communications with a minor in Business. My sophomore year, I began coaching gymnastics at Champions Academy at WAYA, and in 2002, after completion of college, I began Kim’s Gym inside the JCC.  I love this sport, I love children, and I love my job. I believe that recreational gymnastics is key in shaping a child’s future. It provides self confidence, a healthy view of staying in shape, constant positive reinforcement, and is just plain fun. I continue to attend gymnastics conferences, am a member of the Gymnastics Association of Texas, and am safety certified by USA Gymnastics. I am also a member of the Board of Directors for Camp Dream Street, a sleep away camp in Utica, Mississippi for children with physical disabilities.


If I haven’t met you yet, please be sure that you introduce yourself. I love to being able to match up all of our wonderful students with their parents. Thank you again for sharing your amazing children with us.


Rachel Butler

Program Director


Hey everyone! My name is Rachel Butler and I have been with Kim’s for 6 years now. I am from Atlanta, Texas and a graduate of the University of Texas. I participated in gymnastics as a child and cheered competitively through high school. I started coaching at Kim’s part-time through college and was hired on full-time after graduation to take on marketing. As my role has evolved, I have always been able to say I enjoy what I do and feel very passionate about the positive influence that recreational gymnastics can have on a child’s life. I am thrilled to be working for a program that is dedicated to teaching positive life skills and helping kids develop good character. I love working with children and their families, and non-competitive gymnastics gives me the opportunity to do this in a really fun environment. At Kim’s Gym, I get to help make sure that every child that comes in leaves feeling good about themselves and their accomplishments. I treasure the opportunity to work with each of your gymnasts!


Megan Gorey

Curriculum Specialist and Elite Silver Head Coach


Hi everyone! My name is Megan and I am from Nashville, TN. I have been coaching at Kim’s Gym for 6 years. I started recreational gymnastics at 6 and started competitive gymnastics at 8. I competed up to Level 10 and continued the sport in college competing for the Indiana University club team. I currently am at it again competing as an Alumni with the UT gymnastics team. I am very passionate about this sport and the many wonderful  life lessons that come from it. I absolutely love sharing my knowledge with children. I started coaching as a teen and have coached both recreational and competitive gymnastics. Not only do I appreciate how gymnastics can improve coordination and balance and increase strength, but I love seeing a child’s self-esteem and confidence grow. I am so grateful to have found a wonderful gym that has a positive focus on the sport. Outside of the gym I enjoy traveling by bicycle, rock climbing and doing yoga.
