Chow was the personal coach of Shawn Johnson, a gold medalist at the Beijing Olympics. After he moved to the US in 1990, he coached the men’s and women’s gymnastics teams at the University of Iowa. He now has his own training facility, the Chow’s Gymnastics & Dance Institute, in Des Moines, Iowa.  Chow, who is originally from Beijing, became an American in 2002.
