OUR BACKFLIP STORY

WELCOME TO OUR BACKFLIP COMMUNITY!

I am excited to welcome you to Backflip Gymnastics.

Since 2008 we have motivated and inspired over 5,000 children within their weekly gymnastic classes, from village halls to our unique fully set up premises with high-spec equipment.

I started gymnastics when I was 4 years old when my mum took me to gymnastics because I couldn’t sit still and was always upside down. I quickly fell in love with gymnastics starting with a few hours a week to nearly living at the gym training up to 30 hours a week. The gym was most certainly my second home.

Throughout my career, I enjoyed many successes and created incredible memories:

  • London Champion numerous times

  • 5 x British Champion

  • Represented Great Britain at 2 World and European Championships

IT HAS TAUGHT ME:

CONFIDENCE

DETERMINATION

A STRONG MINDSET

WORK ETHIC

SELF MOTIVATION

AND SO MUCH MORE...

which all form our Mission at Backflip today.

This was the reason Backflip Gymnastics was born. I am very passionate about children taking part in gymnastics, whether it is for 1 hour a week or if they choose to take it further, what they will learn within our unique curriculum will set the foundations for years to come in whatever they choose to be.

Our curriculum is set up to ensure your child is rewarded at every step of their journey (link to rewards page). As a parent myself to Amelie and Ashton, I see firsthand how important, these rewards are and how a sticker or certificate can go a very long way.

Alongside our extensive reward program, Backflip is also recognized for its:

ENERGY

FRIENDLINESS

AND SUPER FUN CLASSES

I very much look forward to seeing your child THRIVE at Backflip and reach their full potential.
