Many of you will know Sharley as she is one of our Head Trampoline Coaches who coaches at our Oakwood, Oriel and Jubilee training centres. She is also ready to greet you with a big HELLO and a warm smile even at 9am on a Sunday morning (my daughter attends FunFit with her there). She also has the patience of a saint when ‘independent minded’ 2.5 year olds don’t listen (my daughter again!). We put a few questions to her to help you get to know her a little bit better.
What does your perfect day look like?
My perfect day! Perfection is very impossible to come by. However, I have had a few very memorable days that come close to perfection. So to wake up surrounded by new found friends in a beautiful foreign country, to take part in an extreme sport activity (sky diving, for example) and to enjoy some really super good vegetarian food with my favourite people around me… That sounds pretty perfect. Making memories that last a lifetime comes close to perfection, I think.
Where do you most want to travel, but have never been?
Oh this is a very appropriate question for me! This summer I travelled the whole of Europe, hence the previous answer. So I was going to say somewhere other than Europe. However, I’ve had my heart set on seeing the Aurora Lights, so right now, Iceland is my top choice. To see the lights, and to bathe in the Blue Lagoon. Not to shop for frozen food.
What animal best represents you and why?
I’d say a bird of some sort. But a bird that can fly, birds that can’t fly must be really sad and jealous of flying birds. I’d like to be a bird for the freedom of flight, and because I love heights.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
In Hungary I had an amazing dinner and it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten. It was a tofu dish, with a sweet honey sauce, jasmine rice and salad. I’d happily eat that. Always. Or chocolate, does that count as a meal?
What makes you happiest?
These questions are so difficult! So many things make me happy. But choosing one thing that makes me the happiest… That’s difficult. I can’t choose! But my happy things in a short condensed list are – travelling and adventures, my friends at home, my friends in other countries, my crazy younger sister, being around nature, good food, beautiful weather..
How did you get into Trampolining/Gymnastics and what do love about Springfit ?
I started taking part in trampolining classes when I was 5 years old. I love the people at Springfit. My colleagues are hilarious, wonderful, brilliant, uplifting people to be around. The gymnasts and parents never fail to make me smile. The people at Springfit make it the club that is it today.
