Kevin started his journey into the world of gymnastics, at the age of 12, as manager of a high school gymnastics team in Yorktown Heights, New York. The following year, the family moved to the suburbs of Chicago, a hot bed for high school gymnastics, where he attended John Hersey high school, in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  A college scholarship led him to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, under the direction of Coach Bill Meade. As a college gymnast, Kevin was a member of the USGF National Men’s Team and received the bronze medal on pommel horse at the USGF National Championships in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After graduating from SIU-C with a degree in Education, Kevin worked on his Masters in Biomechanics and Physiology of Exercise and assisted Coach Meade with the gymnastics team. The experience with Meade planted the seeds for Kevin to venture into the world of coaching. Coach Muenz moved to Garland, Texas in 1982 and is now in his 39th year of coaching at Lakeview Centennial High School and Brandenburg Middle School.  During this time, his teams have won 5 high school state championships; he has been honored 3 times by the Texas High School Gymnastics Coaches Association as their Coach of the Year and in 1991 he was awarded the prestigious National High School Coach of the Year award. Additionally, Kevin served as the USA-G's Texas State Chairman, a post he filled for 25 years. Along with his coaching, Kevin has been an active member of the NGJA and is currently the Mid-West Regional Technical Director.  Kevin has been married for over 30 years to his wife Debbie and they have 3 children.
