About Us

About Us

We are Andrea and Matt Ivey, and we have a passion for kids, fitness, and fun. We both graduated together from Humboldt State University with our degrees in Recreation Administration with minors in Business. In 2010 we founded Adventure Recreation as we saw the increasing need for fun athletic programing for today’s youth. With electronic screen time on the rise and physical activity on the decline, we feel it is vital to keep kids active and healthy. We bring a well rounded, highly instructional, and organized program. We are excited to share our passion with you and develop lasting relationships in our community.

COACH ANDREA'S BIOGRAPHY

Coach Andrea has been involved in the sport of gymnastics for 33 years, 20 of which she has spent coaching. With a dream to own a gym since she was 9 years old, Andrea attended Humboldt State University and earned a degree in Recreation Administration. Then, in 2010 the first Adventure Recreation was born in Ukiah, CA as a mobile climbing wall. Over the course of 2 years, the company grew into a full gymnasium. Then in 2017 Andrea, her family, and Adventure Recreation moved to Petaluma, CA, and found their home. Today, Coach Andrea enjoys creating a community of athletes and their families. If you know Coach Andrea, you know she is always ready to have a laugh and get silly with her athletes, daughter, son, and friends. Be on the lookout for Andrea riding across Sonoma State’s Campus with her kids or enjoying live music at Brewster’s.
