Owner / Head Coach &
Echo Johnson has been married for five years to her husband Craig and has four beautiful daughters. She recently moved back to Alamogordo, where she was introduced to gymnastics by her best friend in the 2nd grade. Echo was a competitive gymnast for over ten years, in Alamogordo, NM, and Greeley, CO. She transitioned from a gymnast to a coach as her career began winding down and has had the opportunity to coach at multiple gyms in Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. Her favorite part of being a coach is seeing a student get a skill and being part of that "aha" moment, where the drills, conditioning, and perseverance all come tougher to make that moment happen. Echo is excited to be sharing her love for gymnastics and cheer with her hometown community. She hopes that Xtreme Amplitude becomes a place that not only teaches student skills for gymnastics but also helps them to succeed in all aspects of their life.
Jessi Heisinger is excited to join Xtreme Amplitude as the Preschool Program Director. She is a mother of four and a proud law enforcement officer's wife who loves expressing creativity through various artistic hobbies. Jessi enjoys spending time with her family hiking and exploring new places. She spent much of her youth participating in gymnastics, cheer and swimming. Having raised amazing kids herself, a creative and young at heart personality, and a passion for making a difference, she is thrilled to be a part of this team!
