– British Gymnastics Gymnastics Coach (Level 1)
– Enhanced DBS Clearance
I came into gymnastics through a freestyle background myself so am now grateful for the opportunity to pass on skills I have learnt to a new generation of gymnasts. I find freestyle gives individuals the ability to find their own creative goals with in gymnastics movement.
I enjoy practising gymnastics myself for furthering my own physical and mental abilities, I have found these skills apply to many aspects of my life including the demands of martial arts in which I know participate. More than anything I love coaching to see an individual achieve a personal goal or skill that they have worked so hard for!
I especially enjoy working with our teenagers in the freestyle classes, where their hard work has shown immense progress in both their strength and flexibility.
Coaching has also prepared me for a broader work environment (where I now also work as a Trainee Engineer), by helping me develop my social skills and handling various degrees of responsibility.
