The Gordon JCC is excited to introduce Mari-Lynn Wilson as our new Aquatics Director! Mari-Lynn graduated from MTSU with a degree in Exercise Science and is currently pursuing her Masters in Exercise Science: Wellness and Nutrition from Liberty University. When she’s not at work, you can often find her and her son on a trail somewhere hiking or camping. She also enjoys rock climbing and teaching fitness classes/training in her spare time. Her certifications include being an American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, IBBFA Level 3 Barre Instructor, 200-hour Certified Yoga teacher, Pound Fitness Instructor, and she holds certificates in several Silver Sneakers formats.
Her pride and joy, however, is aquatics where she is an American Red Cross certified Lifeguard Instructor/Instructor Trainer, and Water Safety Instructor. She has been a National Swimming Pool Foundation Certified Pool Operator for seven years and really loves the mechanics of pools. She is also a certified paddleboard instructor and Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga teacher. She has a passion for swim lessons and believes every child should have the opportunity to learn to swim and prides herself on educating the public about water safety and the benefits of water safety programming. We welcome Mari-Lynn and are honored to have her bring her expertise and passion for aquatics to the J.
