Mr. Nasser, Founder/Owner

Nasser Parvinrouh was born in Shiraz, Iran. He was an Olympic gymnast and competed for Iran in the 1964 Olympics in Japan. At one time, Mr. Nasser was ranked 16th in the world!

Mr. Nasser was a professor at Faulkner State Community College and taught Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance from 1971-1982. He then went on to establish Nasser Gymnastics Academy in Mobile, AL.

Nasser Gymnastics Academy was founded with the vision to build a facility that would provide a safe, developmental, and rewarding environment for aspiring gymnasts. He instituted progressive training techniques to ensure each student received the best instruction possible while having fun. We are proud to continue in following those traditions today.

Nasser Parvinrouh retired from coaching gymnastics 10 years ago but still pops in the gym from time to time. His wife, Fatemeh Parvinrouh, and daughter, Laleh Parvinrouh, currently manage Nasser Gymnastics.
