Coach Kari developed Red Peak Gym, formerly Tiny Tumblers, so she could share her passion and excitement for the flipping she loves, in a personalized setting.


In her youth, Kari was a competitive gymnast, earning a full-ride athletic scholarship to Brigham Young University. There she became a D1 NCAA All-American Athlete and BYU's first ever (& still only) 10.0 score on beam in school history. She holds one of the top 3 all-around scores for the school!

In her 9 years at SUU, she declined 4 other D1 coaching positions, coached 2 teams to Academic National Championships, advanced 5 times to the NCAA National Championships with athletes, and in her last season helped the team to SUU's highest ever team finish in school history (15th). She also was part of the team WAC Conference title, a 10.0 athlete, and several athlete Conference title champions.

In addition to gymnastics, tumbling, parkour and ninja, Kari has her Masters Degree in Exercise Science Sports Conditioning, is Acrobatic Arts Certified, and is RYT 500 Yoga Certified. She aspires to help others be flippin' awesome! She is married to David Louthan, & has four children: Cruise (10), and Kaylee (8), Van (4), and Harper (2).
