Springfit gymnastics and trampoline club recently held class displays for the parents of each of their nine ability-based gymnastics classes.

All members performed moves on various apparatus to show off what they have learnt in recent months, and one lucky gymnast in each class was awarded a gold medal for attainment.  This progress medal is handed out in recognition of the effort and dedication shown by the young athletes since the last display. Chosen by the coaching teams who run classes, the decision is often a close one, with many showcasing new moves and highlighting improved strength and flexibility.
The parents in attendance commented on the amount of individual development they were enjoying seeing from their children, and were vocal in their support for the entertaining moves and demonstrations on offer. The gymnasts performed skilfully timed display runs to leap over vaults and fly through the air from trampettes, which engaged and delighted the crowd. The sessions help children get used to performing for an audience, and provide parents with a great sense of pride at watching them enjoy their sport.

Each and every child was congratulated for their excellent progress made in the last six months, and joined in the appreciation and joy for the selected winner whom their coaches considered to have excelled themselves the most.
Pictured here from left to right are all the March progress medal winners at Springfit club:

From Wednesday 6pm boys class: Daniel Brigden (7), Thursday 6:30pm boys class: Keiran Hart (7), Friday 5pm beginners:  Paarth Nagpal (6), Friday 6pm improvers: Hannah McHardie (8), Friday 7pm advanced:  Alice Tustian (13), Saturday 11am beginners:  Alice Lawrence (5), Saturday 12pm improvers:  Ruby Charlesworth (8), Saturday 1pm advanced: Chloe Lamy (10) and Sunday 11am beginners: Isabella Gair (5).

Springfit Gymnastics and Trampoline club are proud to bring their popular and unique style of gymnastics coaching to Meath Green Infant school, Horley .

Following on from the success of Manorfield Infant school’s pre-school sessions for 2yrs up, the team will provide ‘breakfast club’ sessions for pupils.  This extends the reach of the club to more people in Horley, and is another step in the steady development of the club throughout the area.

With classes planned in Crawley and more in Redhill, parents are delighted at the opportunity for children to build on balance and co-ordination as well as confidence and social interaction.
With demand growing for more of the hugely popular “Funfit” classes, the club is proud to be a leader in the field of pre-school gymnastics sessions.

Springfit manager Adam Reynolds said of the new project; “We have been inundated with organisations begging us to bring our style of coaching to children in their area, and are pleased to be able to offer additional classes.  It is important that children are introduced to these activities early as it builds on basic life skills, and the testimonials on our website are proof of that.”
Pre-school sessions at Manorfield and Funfit classes at Oakwood are open to the public to join at a very reasonable price. For further information contact us on 0203 478 0203 or email info@springfit.org

Gymnasts tumbled into action at the Pointers’ gym club Invitational Tumbling and Acrobatic competition on Sunday 13th March. Members of Horley-based Springfit gym club travelled to de Stafford Sports Centre, Caterham to take part in the annual event, and came away with most of the medals.

There was a large turnout of gymnasts along with friends and families who waited excitedly for their child to perform. The competition consisted of two disciplines, first being tumbling runs, starting with novice grades involving forward rolls and jumps, through to the advanced grades of front somersaults and no-handed cartwheels. Then spectators enjoyed some very diverse and well performed acrobatic performances to finish off the competition. Acrobatics is a discipline which uses no apparatus but only the strength and trust of each other to balance, catch, dance and flip around the floor area. Routines are performed to music with entertaining moves linking each element.

The audience were delighted to see the efforts of the gymnasts who took part and the judges were very impressed with the steady progression of strength and flexibility the gymnasts showed. Tumbles were strong for the complex moves involved, and the acrobatic pair and trio routines were choreographed by the children themselves.

Pictured below are the acrobatic medal winners (from top left to bottom right):

Emily Charman (14, Springfit), Cydnie-May Aldridge (13, Springfit), Maxine Coldrey (10, Springfit), Abbie Clifton (12, Springfit), Katie Pidgeon (13, Springfit), Amber Clifton (15, Springfit), Shai Holland (14, Springfit), Lauren Aldridge (11, Springfit), Eleanor Cox (12, Springfit), Hayley Walmsley (11, Springfit), Lily Fairhall (12, Pointers), Hannah Bagley (10, Springfit), Lucy Fish (9, Springfit), Francesca Bagley (12, Springfit), Sofia Sgambellone (10, Springfit), Lucy Parker (9, Springfit), Stacey Connor (10, Springfit), Zoe Smallman (10, Springfit) and Kirsty Chapman (9, Springfit)

Calling all members and friends.

Our trampoline coach, Kim Christmas, who has been a member of the Springfit team for many years, is going to be running the London marathon for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign.  Please sponsor her at:

www.justgiving.com/Kimberley-Christmas or you can fill in the form she has, and she can collect once she has run.

Kim says of her ambitious feat:

“I am trying to raise £2000 for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign, to help to keep the hospital at the leading edge of cancer treatment, research and care. 40,000 people every year use the Royal Marsden Hospital to try and beat cancer and I hope, with the funds I raise, I will help some people spend more time with family and friends and less time in hospital. Someone very close to me had their life extended by 9 years because of the research and hard work that goes into investigating new cures, types of care and innovative surgeries. For this I am forever grateful.
I am running the 26 (very long) miles through London on 17th April (just over a month away, eek) and would appreciate any support and anything that you can give towards the Royal Marsden will be hugely appreciated.
Please pledge your support for her atwww.justgiving.com/Kimberley-Christmas or find her to fll in on the form.

There were a record number of first-time competitors entering at Grade 8 of the Winstrada proficiency scheme, and organisers extended the duration of the event to accommodate those keen children. The youngsters showed great spirit and determination to perform the best routine they could for the judging panel, and overcame any nerves they had by enjoying the friendly spirit of the event. Proud parents witnessed a medal ceremony to remember, with some surprised and delighted winners taking the podium places.

The advanced section followed, with routines involving multiple somersaults from older gymnasts who have previously competed at the lower levels. There were some spectacular moves on display, and a good spirit amongst the competitors. The synchronised section where two gymnasts perform a routine at the same time as each other was a delight to watch, and the results were very close.
