Our Program has won multiple awards, throughout the country with Natural Impact Cheer Teams and now with the addition of the Jr. Panthers Cheer Team. Our success is credited to our talented and experienced group of coaches, combined with having over 50 years of dance and cheer experience. While our coaches are the backbone of Natural Impact we also support staff and volunteers that keep this organization running and improving.
Vernon Taylor - Coach V
Gym Owner, Head Coach (Natural Impact Teams, Jr. Panthers)
Vernon Taylor, known as Coach V by colleagues and students, has been tumbling since the age of five. He took his passion for tumbling and creative dance to a different level by becoming a cheerleader during his Senior year of high school. This decision landed him a scholarship to Lindenwood University. During his time at Lindenwood, he became the assistant cheer coach for the university and also started coaching at local facilities. In 2010 Coach V suffered what seemed a career-ending injury, being told by doctors that he would always have a limp and that he would not be able to run or jump. After two years of rehab, strength training, mental healing and a positive mindset Coach V overcame the adversity and proved his Doctors wrong. Along with cheer, Coach V also has experience in Hip-Hop Choreography and gymnastics.
Certifications include: NASM Fitness Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified John Maxwell Speaker, Coach, and Trainer.
