“We Get Fit When We Get Bored!”
Coach Mario gets fit when he gets bored – it's a way of life for him and his clients.
Mario Gates, owner and founder of Get Bored Get Fit Studio, specializes in helping competitive dancers learn acrobatics, gain flexibility, and build strength to enhance their acrobatic skills. He also help aids in the development of tumbling skills and cheer jumps for cheerleaders. Mario has an eye for detail and is a stickler for having a "can do" positive attitude during the process. He is passionate about helping kids and teens grow in confidence while teaching them how to be productive with their downtime. After coaching at a few gymnastics gyms and instructing at other dance studios, Mario noticed he started to build up a following that really loved his way of building strength and getting skills accomplished. During the same time, he realized some of his most competitive athletes were still spending way too much time on mobile devices and video games outside of the gym. This was the last straw! Mario started making house calls and traveling around spreading his knowledge and his mantra. Once his waiting list grew, he knew it was time to take the big leap. Mario drove around with gymnastics mats and workout equipment in his little two door Honda civic, to a 900 sq. ft facility located under Organic Harvest in Hoover, to the newly renovated 2,500 sq. ft studio next to Compass Bank. Every since the first space opened in May 2016, Mario has rapidly gained a reputation of excellence around Vestavia Hills, Hoover, and Mountain Brooke.
