This week’s #TeamTuesday featured team member is Rock Starz Coach, Eli Price. At multiple gyms in the tri-state area, Eli coaches gymnastics, cheer tumbling, ParKour, Acrodunking, weight training, strength and conditioning, speed and agility and a few other activities. When Eli is not coaching, you can find him stunting and dunking at professional basketball games. Eli has a position with 3 different dunk teams across the U.S. Team Acrodunk, including Americas Got Talent, The New York Knicks Air Elite Dunkers and I Am Talent Dunkers. Coach Eli is very excited to teach trampoline classes and clinics for the Rock Starz this summer!
Get to know Eli!
1. What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of coaching is seeing the joy in an athlete’s face when I am able to get them to a new skill that they thought they were not able to do.
2. What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishment is being able to take my skills from gymnastics and turn them into entertainment for NBA fans. Every time I step out on the court I know that I would not be able to do half of what I do if it had not been for gymnastics.
3. What is something most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I used to be a mascot for the WMBA for 3 years.
4. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I love to workout, travel, go to the movies, test drive new cars, go skydiving, play sports and hangout with good people.
5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I have been lucky to have done a lot of traveling in my life. I have been to about 30 states in the U.S. and several different countries. For my next trip, I would love to visit Australia.
6. Who is your role model?
My role model is my uncle/gymnastics coach.
7. What are three things that are on your bucket list?
Visit Australia, learn how to snowboard and go jet skiing!
