Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Coach Manuel Perez?

My name is Manuel Perez, and I have been teaching gymnastics and motor skills since 1973. The Fun and Games Coach is the result of many years of specializing in motor skills and movement. Throughout my career, I’ve had parents, teachers, and directors comment on the results they’ve seen in their homes and classrooms. They wanted to replicate these results but did not have the proper equipment or know-how to properly use it.

Fast forward to today, the short video clips on this website can help anyone that works with children accomplish similar results. I have found that motor development plays a huge role in children’s confidence and self-esteem. By also impacting the self-discipline of the child, there is a steady positive change in behavior both in the classroom and at home. Fun and humor, in my opinion, are the keystones to unlocking a child’s willingness to learn. Physical and mental challenges are not as daunting when a child is distracted from what they fear. My expertise is in using these positive characteristics to reach and teach children.

Humor is especially relevant when approaching children who are overactive or have low self-esteem and other issues. My goal is to help children develop self-esteem, self-worth, and self-discipline through joy from physical fitness. Having presented my creative teaching techniques to learning centers, church weekday schools, and sports camps, and doing over 30 Motor Skills and Movement Workshops, I started my “Gymnastics Plus Mobile Gym on Wheels Program” in 1986 at learning centers, Montessori schools, weekday preschools, and private schools. I was teaching children as early as 18 months through early elementary.

With 46 years of experience teaching motor skills, rhythm and games, tumbling, and gymnastics, we can help you achieve the goals you have. Our programs are designed to be accessible to everyone, regardless of age or ability level. So what are you waiting for? Start learning now!

Hear For Yourself

Several years ago Coach Manuel came to Children's House & Montessori School, wanting to teach Gymnastics and Motor Skills. Now years later, what has amazed me most about Coach Manuel's Program and Curriculum, is that children learned to really listen and follow instruction and directions. Children that Coach Manuel instructed learned to interact with one another and most importantly, children have developed Self-Worth and a tremendous amount of Self-Esteem. I gladly recommend Coach Manuel's Fun and Games Coach Program to any school or organization.

S. WhiteSchool Director

It is my pleasure to recommend Coach Manuel (The Fun and Games Coach) to any School or Learning Center. Coach Manuel has been teaching his Motor Skills Programs in my classroom as an after school Enrichment option for several years. During this time, I have seen his warm and energetic approach and his keen wisdom with children pay off time and time again. I have seen shy children blossom and over active children calm down. He is a wonderful and rare male asset to our school. As a mother of one of his students and the Montessori teacher of many of them, I have seen him work his magic as effortlessly as only the truly gifted can. I encourage any organization who is considering The Fun and Games Coach Program to give it a try. I am confident that you will be glad you did.

D.S. SchultzPrimary School Teacher

Coach Manuel has done many Preschool Motor Skills and Gymnastics Workshops for River City Gymnastics. His Coaching and Teaching approach is unique and refreshing. The Preschool Gymnastics Instructors he has taught are always engaged and motivated to try his drills in their classes. The Preschool Equipment he uses is different and exciting to try with our two year olds through Kinder ages. Children are always ready to try the new motor skills and equipment Coach Manuel suggest. His Motor Skills Program has been extremely beneficial for both children and instructor. Preschool teachers are better prepared and children have developed better Self-Confidence and Self-Control. I would highly recommend Coach Manuel's Gymnastics and Motor Skills Program and Workshops to any Preschool Gymnastics Program or Preschools and Learning Centers.
