For as long as I remember I have wanted to try gymnastics, unfortunately for me that opportunity didn’t come until University through my practice of Parkour. Since then I’ve been practising both disciplines as often as I can squeeze in. My personal goal is just to enjoy moving and also to challenge myself to be more capable in that respect, in any way I can.

Three years after my graduation I had the opportunity to start coaching with Springfit. To coach now is a huge gift to me, not only can I dedicate the majority of my time to the practice of movement, but I can be part of a force offering all ages the very thing I feel I missed out on when growing up.

Watching others benefit from the sport, enjoying their own progression and developing their own set of skills is what makes coaching wonderful to me. I still find it incredible how much it is possible to achieve with the right help and suitable learning environment, and I find being part of that process incredibly rewarding.

To me gymnastics is about getting involved and giving it your best, so now through working with Springfit I can give those who have an initial interest in the sport as much help and opportunity as I can to get started and keep learning!
