Seventeen year Emily Charman from Outwood, Surrey has been awarded Springfit’s Elite Trophy for her outstanding achievements throughout the last year.

The trophy rewards effort in improving flexibility, strength, attitude and performance in gymnastics.

Emily has competed in regular local competitions for the club and has been working hard in her Thursday class in Horley, showing a determined attitude towards training that has seen her achieve many new skills including a free cartwheel (no hands) and back somersault on the floor.

Emily leads by example in the Elite gymnastics class, providing support and advice to the many younger members of the specialist session which provides further hours of training to members through invitation by the Head Coach of advanced classes at the club.

Emily clearly has a passion for the sport, and believes this is the reason she has managed to progress so well in recent months. Her enthusiasm for gymnastics is evident in every class she attends, and every move she performs. Emily’s level of involvement has been on the increase with some recent experience helping out in classes, and it is possible there could be more to enjoy from the sport in future, much to her coaches’ delight.

Head Coach Stacey said of Emily “Emily has worked so hard towards her moves and her attitude and ability in gymnastics has changed so much that the improvement is noticeable all round. She has got more confident in the skills she is doing which shows in the harder grades she is entering at competition. I am very proud of her”
