For Nate, life has always been about embracing the grind and keeping perspective. When he started competitive gymnastics at the young age of five, he quickly learned that it takes resilience and drive to continually elevate to the next level. Nate approaches life with that same mindset: Even when things get turned upside down, he flips it around to find a different approach.
His gymnastics journey carried him through college, where he was a floor, vault, and high bar event specialist for UC Berkeley. During undergrad, Nate also discovered dance. This led to a semester when he tried to balance (literally) gymnastics, multiple dance teams, and his schoolwork, and it was simply too much. He failed the semester. But in Nate fashion, he put that thing down, flipped it, and reversed it. He regained his sense of balance and graduated with a Bachelor's in Biology, finished off his 18-year gymnastics career with a bang, and continued his love for dance by joining the Warriors Dance Team. Now, he’s discovered that Rumble is the perfect mesh of his passions: the strength and power from gymnastics and the flow and rhythm of dance. In Nate’s class, there’s no such thing as failure—you’re just a perspective flip away from a total knockout.
