NANCY TAYLOR - OWNER
Nancy Taylor grew up in Hood River, Oregon where she rode the bus after school to gymnastics classes several days each week. If she wasn't at the gym you could find her at a dance class or piano lessons. She loved the days she got to go to gymnastics because she learned how to work hard and to have the patience to achieve many different skills. As a young girl she was very shy and gymnastics gave her the confidence and strength to come out of her shell and make a lot of new friendships. In 1993 she married her high school sweetheart and they have 3 children. When she had children of her own she wanted them to take gymnastics classes as well. Her gymnastics experience allowed her the opportunity to volunteer at her children's gymnastics school.
She is a Piano Instructor for Children & Adults in Gearhart, Oregon. She has been a Piano Instructor for the past 22 years and truly loves it!
CrossFit has also played a large roll in her life. She is currently a CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Kids Certified instructor. Before opening Infinity in January 2017 she coached CrossFit Kids classes for 3 years. Her passion is teaching children that exercise is fun and create a life long enjoyment of fitness in whatever activity or sport they choose.
