We would like to congratulate all our gymnasts who won the Progress Medal in the gymnastics classes. The Head Coaches have a tough time on deciding who they feel deserve the medals – they take into account many attributes – dedication, determination, attendance and as well as ability!

As the Club is growing so much – we now have 30 trampoline classes and so we now have separate posts for our Hall of Fame for our Gymnastics and Trampoline Class Progress Medal winners!!

During the 3rd week of May we held special sessions, where parents are invited to watch their children and their classmates show the progress they have made by individually showcasing their ever growing repertoire of skills. The head coach then had to decide on one trampolinist whom they felt had made the most progress over the last six months. This is definitely one of their hardest tasks as a Springfit Head Coach, as everyone seems to be coming on leaps and bounds! Coaches also look at other factors such as attendance level, attentiveness in class – this is particularly important in trampolining where everyone should be ‘spotting’ for the other trampolinists – as well perseverance with a tricky move or improvements in balance and co-ordination. At the end of the class, the chosen trampolinists was awarded a well deserved gold medal for their hard work and determination.

This time medals were awarded to brother and sister Samuele and Valentina Matata. Coach Megan Snow had great praise for them both saying about Valentina ” She has recently come back from a break and with all her effort she has put in she has developed new skills and passed many skills including a front somersault which she would always say no to!  Valentina also never fails to smile and is a star pupil when it comes to setting down as she organises everyone. Well done “. With regards to Samuele  she said “He hasn’t been in the class as long as most of the participants but has shown twice the determination as well as improving so much. He always arrives on time and never fails to complete instructions given. He never gives up and he never allows anyone else to either – he is the class cheerleader. An award well deserved for many reasons.” 

Head Coach Adam also had great praise for some of his trampolinists saying of Madeline Griffin she has made amazing progress passing 8 badges in 6 months and adult class member Christina Bassett has shown great perseverance and dedication to her sport in the classes. 

Megan and her assistant Elise also had high praise for Mikey saying “He never fails to make the class laugh and always brings positive vibes. After a hard battle with him to do skills Mikey finally braved his fears and is now doing front somersaults after being scared to go upside down! We are proud to have him in our class!”

 It always gives us great pleasure in presenting these lovely shiny gold medals to our Springfit members who we feel deserve the recognition. It boosts  confidence, gives them a sense of pride in what they do and offers something to focus on and work towards every six months. In addition, it’s a class event that all our members look forward to and enjoy, as well as the parents and other spectators!

The Springfit team would like to congratulate all the trampolinists pictured below, who achieved this medal for their fantastic progress throughout the last six months.

From 2016 we decided to run our parent sit in and progress medals sessions for both our gymnastics and trampoline classes during the same week. It means a busy week for our coaches and members but it is a great way for parents to see their children perform in class.

During this special session, parents are invited to watch their children and their classmates show the progress they have made, and sometimes enjoy a group performance choreographed by the coach (in gymnastics) as well as individually showcase their ever growing repertoire of skills. The head coach then had to decide on one gymnast or trampolinists whom they felt had made the most progress over the last six months. This is definitely one of their hardest tasks as a Springfit Head Coach, as everyone seems to be coming on leaps and bounds!

When most people think of gymnastics classes, they think of children but here at Springfit we run classes for adults as well! We have mentioned before that gymnastics has numerous health benefits for those young and ‘old’! 

If you follow us on Facebook or visit our website, you will know that twice a year we hand out progress medals to students in our classes to reward them for the hard work, determination and effort that they put into the classes. Again you may think these are just for the children? Wrong!!!  We believe that everyone deserve the chance to be recognised for their hard work and so we also hand these medals out in our adult classes.

Kathy trains with us on a Wednesday at our St Bedes location and she earned herself a well deserved Progress Medal in our last round of Gymnastics Progress Medals back in late October 2015.  We put a few questions to her about why she does gymnastics.

How and Why did you get into gymnastics in the first place?

“It’s something I’ve always been in awe of. I’ve literally never done anything gymnastics-wise before, I didn’t do anything as a child and have always been envious of people doing cartwheels and handstands without a second thought. It’s always been top on my list of things I’d love to be able to do, and finally decided after watching my daughter at Springfit that maybe I too could have a go.”

Kathy Cassidy Adults 7pm Wednesday St Bedes
Kathy Cassidy looking happy with her medal!

What do you like about training with Springfit?

“I go to Wednesday’s adult gymnastics class run by Helen, who is amazingly supportive. She always welcomes everyone regardless of ability (or lack of in my case!) and makes sure there is something appropriate for all levels to work on. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she recognised and celebrates every achievement, no matter how small. There’s a good group of coaches, Sean, Josh and Daisy (as well as some “guest” coach appearances!) who are also really supportive. I also have Star Membership, which is amazing for me. I have two young children and a husband who travels abroad a lot, which means I can’t make every week. So the ability to catch up classes without losing money every time I can’t go is ideal for me. But I love going so much that I usually try and rope one of my very kind friends into babysitting so I can still get to come! I also do adult trampoline with coach Sharley, which is ideal for beginners as everyone works at their own pace. I like the fact that Springfit have a sibling discount, which counts for parents, not just brothers and sisters.”

What is your favourite apparatus and why?

“I like the beam, as I’m not bad at balancing! I also love the air track, as it gives you an extra bounce to practise moves on. I feel I can throw myself around a little more on there as its so cushioned.”

What move can you do that you didn’t think you would be able to do?

“To be honest, there’s still so much I can’t yet do. But the important thing is I recognise how much further I am than when I started. My attempts at cartwheels are now beginning to look a bit like them, and although I can’t kick up to handstand yet, I can actually hold myself up against the wall nice and strongly, which I never actually imagined I would be able to do. There are people that walk on on their first session and can do more than me, but it doesn’t concern me, as I know I am making progress at my own level. I try and have a go at most things, but sometimes my mind just won’t let me. But I am always really pleased with myself when I overcome a fear of something and actually manage to attempt it.”

What benefits do you feel you are getting from the class?

“I get a huge sense of achievement from knowing I am facing my fears and overcoming a history of being teased as a child for being the “wrong physique” shall we say! It took immense courage to walk in that door the first time, but I can honestly say it has been one of the best decisions I made. Also from a health perspective, I am definitely more flexible in the stretches now and it is a fun way to keep fit.” 

My one piece of advice for anyone who has ever thought of going is to be brave and take that first step – You won’t regret it! 

It is hard to believe that it has been nearly 6 months since the last round of  progress medals were awarded to our trampolinists.

These special sessions are a great opportunity for parents to come and watch the class if they don’t usually attend too. The students demonstrate their latest acquired skills and moves and it is so great to see the improvements in basic balance and co-ordination as well as the more subtle aspects such as increased spatial awareness and confidence.

The Gold Medal presentation is greatly anticipated by the trampolinists as they all work hard on improving themselves within the sport, especially as achievements of gaining the next level badge slows as the moves get harder. The progress award is therefore a good way to ensure their continued efforts are still rewarded. This goes for our adult trampolinists as well as the children!

When deciding upon their progress medal winners, coaches have had to take numerous points into consideration such as a trampolinist’s increase in confidence, their determination and attentiveness in class (including ‘spotting’ to help ensure their classmates are safe), perseverance with a tricky move, improvements in balance and co-ordination and good attendance levels.

The Springfit team would like to shout a big ‘Well Done!’ to all 29 trampolinists listed below, who achieved this medal on their fantastic progress throughout the last six months.

In the middle of October it was once again time for one of our favourite events – the biannual ‘Gymnastics Progress Medals’. All week long, parents were invited along to watch their children and their classmates perform in a class display as well as individually to showcase their ever growing repertoire of skills . The head coach then had to decide on one gymnast whom they thought had made the most progress over the last six months, this is definitely one of their hardest tasks as a Springfit Head Coach as all of gymnasts are making great progress! At the end of the class, the chosen gymnast was awarded a well deserved gold medal for their hard work and determination.

The progress medals are not awarded solely on ability but the coaches are taking into account many attributes such as perseverance, attentiveness, class attendance as well as improvement in balance, agility and co-ordination during class so all gymnasts have a good chance of earning themselves a gold medal!

It gives us great pleasure in presenting these lovely shiny gold medals to our Springfit members who we feel deserve the recognition. It boosts a child’s (or adults) confidence, gives them a sense of pride in what they do each week and gives them something to focus on and work towards. In addition, it’s a class event that all our members look forward to and enjoy, as well as the parents and other spectators!

The Springfit team would like to congratulate all the gymnasts pictured below, who achieved this medal for their fantastic progress throughout the last six months.

During the first week in June our trampoline progress medals took place. Coaches had to think long and hard to decide on who, from each of their classes,  deserved the ‘Gold Medal’ for the progress that they have made over the last 6 months.

When deciding upon their progress medal winners, coaches have had to take numerous points into consideration such as a trampolinist’s increase in confidence, their determination and attentiveness in class (including ‘spotting’ to help ensure their classmates are safe), perseverance with a tricky move, improvements in balance and co-ordination and good attendance levels. At Springfit we feel the progress medals are a great way to boost confidence as well as to reward their hard work.

We love to invite parents along to spectate when we are assessing for the progress awards as it helps to make the day all the more special and provides a great, supportive crowd around the trampolines. The children clearly grow in confidence and enjoy showing off their latest skills for parents to see how far they have come in the past six months.

The Springfit team would like to congratulate all gymnasts pictured below, who achieved this medal for their fantastic progress throughout the last six months.

Once again, last month saw one of our favourite events take place – ‘Gymnastics Progress Medals’. All week long, parents were invited along to watch their children perform their latest skills and routines in front of the rest of the class and other parents. The head coach then selected one gymnast (from each of our 27 ability based gymnastic classes) whom they thought had made the most progress over the last six months. At the end of the class, each gymnast was awarded a well deserved gold medal for their hard work and determination.

Selecting one gymnast from each class can at times be quite difficult for coaches. We have many children at the club that come to class regularly and really show a great effort, determination and improvement week on week. However, attributes such as perseverance, attentiveness, class attendance as well as improvement in balance, agility and co-ordination during class (as well as their performance) all get taken into consideration when considering who deserves the progress medal.

We enjoy presenting these shiny gold medals to members who we feel deserve the recognition. It boosts a child’s confidence, gives them a sense of pride in what they do each week and gives them something to focus on and work towards. In addition, it’s a class event that all our members look forward to and enjoy, as well as the parents!

The Springfit team would like to congratulate all 27 gymnasts pictured below, who achieved this medal for their fantastic progress throughout the last six months.
