We had the good fortune of connecting with Betty Arsenault and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Betty, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I knew that starting my own business would have challenges, but in the end would be very rewarding. Being able to do what you love, and provide services that you feel benefit others, really makes life worth living. I’ve been so lucky to have met amazing athletes, coaches and families along the way that have impacted may life as much as CALI COAST ELITE, our All-Star Gym, has impacted theirs. Being a part of a gym culture that feels like family is very special.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
CALI COAST ELITE offers many programs other then competitive cheerleading. We have a tricking program, open gyms, birthday parties, and more. We try to offer a program for every type of individual, and at all price points and commitment levels. Staying active, being a part of a team, class, and program helps develop young minds. We want to make a positive impact on our athletes, mentally and physically.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
San Diego is AMAZING. I’ve lived here for about 13 years now (originally from the East Coast). Being around the water is one of my families favorite things. I ahem a three year old son, and spending time at Fanuel Park in Pacific Beach is one of our favorite things to do. We can walk to restaurants, along the bay, and spend quality time together. My perfect day would be hanging around the beach/ bay with my family and enjoying the beautiful weather of San Diego.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Our coaches, athletes and families truly make cali coast elite a special place to be. The staff members really feel a connection and care about their students. Having the trust of our families is so important to us. We are spending a lot of time with their children and want to impact their lives for the better.
