Meghan Ibach has been an avid athlete since childhood, a trait she has passed along to her two children Madison and Kelton. As a young child, Meghan, was an accomplished gymnast, cheerleader, softball player and was even skiing black diamonds by the age of 5. It is safe to say, you could find her either on the trampoline doing flips, playing games with the neighborhood kids or even climbing a tree, she seemed to always be moving.
Even though she continued to stay active whenever she could, by middle school she focused more of her attention towards soccer and softball. In high school, Meghan received Varsity letters for both softball and soccer, ultimately opened doors for her to play soccer at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania (Division 2). As a college athlete, she learned the importance of out-of-season training for both sports performance and injury prevention.
Her passion for training sparked an interest in body mechanics and coaching. In 2002 she earned her B.S. in Fitness Management/Exercise Science from LHU. Furthering her education, Meghan, also earned her M.Ed. in Health and Physical Education/Athletic Administration from The College of New Jersey. She has 3 years of collegiate coaching experience as a Strength & Conditioning Coach at both Division 1 & 2 levels.
During her 5 years as Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at the high school level, she developed from the ground up a program for over 800 student-athletes. Meghan has 8 years experience as a Health & Physical Education teacher at both the elementary and high school grade levels.
Ben Ibach as a child and young adult was a 3-sport athlete, excelling in football, basketball, and baseball & earning Varsity Letters for all three in high school. His love of sports continues as a proud father who enjoys watching his children participating in gymnastics, soccer, softball and lacrosse.
He earned his B.S. in Health & Physical Education from Lock Haven University, while attending he was a prominent member of the football team receiving the honor of the “Un-Sung Hero Award” in 1999 from the LHU Football Organization.
Ben has over 12 years experience as a full-time Health & Physical Education teacher at both the elementary and middle school grade levels. During this time he has had extensive coaching experience with boys & girls at all age levels in football, basketball & baseball.
Currently he is the Offensive Coordinator for Hunterdon Central Regional High School and the Head Girls Basketball Coach for Flemington-Raritan School District. After the school year ends, Ben spends his time working with boys & girls 2nd thru 8th grade as the Co-Coordinator for the Flemington Tigers Summer Basketball Camp. Coach Ben also just recently started his own Travel Lacrosse Team, GT Lacrosse.
Hello everyone! My name is Miss Pam and I am excited to be here at gym tiME. I am a graduate of Virginia Tech, although I grew up right here in Forks Township. I studied Psychology, working in a child learning and memory research lab and Sociology. My athletic background is in gymnastics. I began at Nardi’s studio at the age of 2 and began competitive gymnastics at the age of 6. I continued competitive gymnastics of 7 years and retired to cheerleading for Easton Area High School. I continued recreational gymnastics during college and taught for the Recreational gymnastics program. Since high school, I have been teaching both recreational and competitive gymnastics for 10 years. I love the look of excitement as a toddler is bouncing around the gym. I love the look of pride when a preschooler does a skill for the first time “all by myself!” I love the sense of strength and accomplishment when a school age student does a “flip” and lands on their feet. Gymnastics and teaching are my passions and I am grateful to share them with you!
Miss Maria is a 2012 graduate from Easton Area High School and a 2016 graduate of East Stroudsburg University where she studied Rehabilitative Services and Psychology. Miss Maria has been a cheerleader for 13 years, starting when she was seven and continued through college. She always loved going to gymnastics and learning new skills. It is always an exciting time when you master a skill that you have been working on for months and she look forward to doing that with you here at gym tiME!
A fire ball of energy! She perfectly combines the ability to pre-plan and execute a flawless class structure while remaining flexible to adapt to a class always changing atmosphere.
