Gymnastics Accomplishments: I would say my greatest gymnastics accomplishment is literally the fact that I have stuck with one of the hardest sports in the world for 17 years of my life. I have won many State and Regional titles throughout my career. But what I am most proud of are the times I have fought through injuries and setbacks to overcome them and move forward. Gymnastics has taught me perseverance, diligence, and that hard work pays off. Those are lessons I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I look forward to being able to instill those same values in future generations of young athletes that I am able to coach in this amazing sport!!!

Isaac Roush

Isaac Roush

Madtown Gymnastics

I’m a senior at Middleton High School (MHS) in Middleton, Wisconsin.  I started taking gymnastics classes at a young age to give my parents a breather at home!  Gymnastics highlights include my fair share of medals and making several All-State Teams, 2018 Regionals All-Around JD Champion and specializing in level 10 floor exercise, rings, vault and pommels.  

Additionally, I’m a varsity high school diver which has included a trip to the 2019 WIAA State Championships placing in the finals and making the Honorable Mention All-Area Team in my first year diving.  Another highlight from my first year diving included a 1st place finish at the 2019 All-City Dive Championships last summer.

I coach kids in gymnastics and trampoline & tumbling at Madtown Twisters Gymnastics as well as coach club divers at High Point Pool in Madison.  I have really enjoyed these work opportunities and hope to continue coaching in the future.

On the academic front, I’m an Academic All-American as well as earned MHS Outstanding Academic Achievement Awards.

I plan to attend college to study meteorology which is a lifelong interest. I’ve been accepted to numerous reputable colleges and I’m balancing this decision with joining a college dive team and/or club gymnastics.
