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.

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!
