Lori Hadley

Lori has always had a love for gymnastics and cheerleading. Growing up participating in both, Lori developed a passion for each sport and always tried to encourage her friends and fellow cheerleaders to get involved as well. Lori attended The University of Alabama from 1990-1994 and was the program director at Alabama Gymnastics Academy from 1990-1995, working very closely with David and Sarah Patterson, learning as much as possible by helping coach with the college team. She then opened, operated, and successfully ran her own gym and all-star cheerleading program in Eufaula, AL for 12 years.  
Lori decided to obtain her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from South Alabama so she sold her business and moved to Daphne in 2008. She coached several all-star teams at Cheer Force One during the three years she was in PT School and then moved with Gem of Champions when Cheer Force One closed in 2010. Lori has combined her numerous years of experience in gymnastics and cheerleading and her vast knowledge of physical therapy to make herself the best possible coach.
Lori LOVES, I mean LOVES, Alabama football, and her favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and Easter.   She also loves Italian food, so it is no surprise her favorite restaurant is a local….Cousin Vinny's.  In addition, Lori enjoys working out, reading and learning, paddle boarding, going fishing,  and shopping online…simply because she can't stand wasting time.   Lori has two dogs, Henry and Sam, who are both rescue dogs and both over 12 years old.  They aren't very active, but they are very sweet and cuddly.
