Face of Gymnastics
When Bryan Kiser was a child, his mother encouraged him to
try gymnastics because she felt it was a much safer option for a sport than football. At age 5, neither she nor him would realize that this would become not only his primary sport but his primary career focus now some 43 years later.
As a competitor, Bryan moved quickly through the Junior Olympic Men’s Program of USA Gymnastics to finish his career as an Elite, the “professional” competitive level of Gymnastics. At age 14, he began coaching as an assistant to his coach and well…he’s still doing what he loves to this day now as the owner of Valor Gymnastics here in Baton Rouge.
Bryan and his wife, Jennifer, completed their move to Baton Rouge in January of 2020 at the same time Bryan took full ownership of Valor and began the transformation of the programming, the facility, and the staff.
Today, Valor provides a warm and welcoming environment for ages 18 months to 18 years old. With the renovations and upgrades the gym and the program exemplifies both the new Valor slogan, “Better Than Yesterday” and the USA Gymnastics slogan: “Begin here, Go anywhere”...
As a Member Club of USA Gymnastics, Bryan has created a culture within Valor where each child, no matter talent level or interest, can come, take classes, and be part of something that is bigger than themselves. The staff strives to make each child feel like they are a champion by challenging them to learn, grow and experience the sport of gymnastics.
Bryan, and former National Team Coach Russ Ward, are a dynamic duo that brings years of experience and the expertise to provide World Class Gymnastics training and development to Louisiana.
Valor is also proud to partner with Parkview Baptist for the school’s first-ever high school gymnastics program. They will be hosting the first ever Parkview invitational for both men and women in 2022.
Bryan suggests every child, boys, and girls, start with gymnastics as it is proven to develop the mind as well as the body in a way few other activities can. At Valor Gymnastics, a child can really “begin here and go anywhere.” It starts with a FREE trial class which can be easily set up by calling (225) 650-3911.
