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 established Nasser Gymnastics Academy in August 1970.
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. 

Mr. Nasser taught Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance at Faulkner State Community College from 1971-1982. He opened his first, self-owned gymnasium in Spanish Fort and then a second gym in Mobile in 1982. He built the gym that we’re in now in 2000. Mr. Nasser loves gymnastics and introduced the local community to the great sport through years of grass-roots, load up the back of a cargo van with handmade equipment to go teach at daycares, programming. That’s why our facility, unlike most others, is open and welcoming to spectators. Mr.Nasser retired from coaching gymnastics in 2015 and passed the reins to his daughter, Laleh. He still frequents the gym to help out and train coaches and we are proud to continue following his teaching methods and traditions today. Nasser Gymnastics is the oldest, established gym in the state of Alabama. The gym is, and always has been, family owned and operated. His wife, Fatemeh, and daughter, Michelle , currently operate Nasser Gymnastics.
