We are so lucky to have such a great group of Athletes, Parents and Friends both past and present.
There is an energy that surrounds Camille which enables her athletes to tap into their own inner potential. So, while they are relationally and professionally connected to her, their passion for their sport finds its roots deep inside their own psyche. I am biased of course, since I have known Camille since she was born. However, I have been around her and her athletes and students enough to see the delight in their eyes as they tap into their inner athlete and perform far beyond what they thought they were capable of. While an amazing choreographer, rhythmic gymnast, and dancer, she possesses a coaching gift that is not about her, but about the inner potential of whomever she is working with. Her coaching comes from her soul, not her ego!
Camille has been an excellent instructor and is a terrific motivator and instructor!
The extra time, energy, and creativity invested by Camille in her camps and workshops makes every opportunity to work with her fun, inspiring, and effective. Camille has consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty as a coach. Since day one she has invested in each girl’s personal development both in and outside of the gym. By sheer luck, I had the privilege of being coached by Camille and I have come away from the sport with leadership skills, goal-setting skills, greater personal awareness and self-confidence. I wish I could say this is the norm for retired athletes but the fact of the matter is that Camille’s conscientious coaching style is truly unique in the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics.
Camille is acutely aware of each person’s individual potential and desire for excellence. Whether you dream of standing atop the podium or finding an outlet for creative movement, Camille is the coach you want!
I am nearly 21 now and I’ve been trying to figure out why I keep stumbling upon success in my life at an age when you’re supposed to just stumble…period. Stumble out of high school into the wonders of becoming an adult, going to university, getting a job, creating a life. It’s a big, scary and hard change…right? But this is what gets me, I’m not having a hard time with it, not at all. I am explaining this so that when I share my conclusion with you, you won’t brush it off as a useless cliche or horrible over exaggeration. So here it is. My only explanation is that I know I wouldn’t be experiencing this success without the incredible impact Rhythmic Gymnastics and Camille Martens had on my childhood. The intangible life skills she fostered in me have literally created the person I am today; a person who never seems short of a spectacular outcome – no matter the hand she’s dealt. I know that I could never have so effortlessly created this thrilling, above average, roller coaster of a life without Camille. I will love her forever, not only for teaching me how to be a champion on the carpet, but for how to be a champion beyond the carpet.
Camille opened a world of opportunity for me. She took me as a shy 9 year old and allowed me to discover my full potential through the creative sport of rhythmic gymnastics. She fostered a passion and love for the sport that you have passed on to not only me, but SO MANY of her gymnasts. I have found that all of her past gymnasts, who are many of my closest friends, have gone on in life and have essentially followed their dreams! So many of her girls are making differences in their own lives and the lives of others, and it is through Camille’s leadership that we have all learned how to be agents of change: Positive change! The closeness allows for phenomenal relationships to be established and genuine talent to be shaped and uplifted. Camille is passionate about her work. Indeed, it is not only her work, but her LIFE!
Camille has changed the lives of countless young athletes through the sport that she loves. Her dedication as an athlete was undeniable, bringing her all the way to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. The only thing to top that is her dedication as a coach, mentor and friend. Camille does not just teach kids how to excel in sport but how to excel in life. She values her athletes and teaches them to be true to themselves. She doesn’t just create gymnasts but leaders. She has produced National Champions, National Team Members, and most recently had one of her athletes who she trained from the age of 4 compete at the World Championships. Camille’s passion, drive and love make her a coach that athletes travel from around the world to come train with. Camille gives everything of herself to be the best coach she can be.
