Twist’n U’s Legacy
Twist’n University was founded in the Spring of 2007 by owners Jeremy and Anna Thompson. The inspiration for this endeavor came from the life of DeAnna Thompson (the first wife of Jeremy, mother of Lexi and Brandon, sister of Coach Bob and daughter to Gary and LaDonna Anderson).
DeAnna came to southern California in the late 80s, where she began helping and healing hundreds of patients as a physical therapist. As a former gymnast and ballerina herself, she put tremendous passion towards nurturing even the most severe quadriplegic cases as well as working with Special Olympic athletes.
DeAnna’s life tragically ended in an automobile accident in 2004. However, her legacy as physical therapist, mother, and Canyon Lake resident has carried on as Twist’n U embraces a philosophy where its programs will nurture self confidence, healthy lifestyles and a passion for growth.
