Our Coaches

Our coaches enjoy gymnastics so much they have decided to teach others from their experience. We aim to teach all children to the best of their ability in a fun and safe environment. 

All our coaches have attended a British gymnastics coaching and attend our in house staff training. They all have appropriate safe guarding and DBS checks along with British gymnastics guide lines.

I can totally recommend this club and sessions as it is structured, fun, safe and a positive learning environment for my son to get confident and learn lifelong skills whilst having fun,. There are classes for all ages and abilities and opportunities to volunteer and learn to coach at the club. So it keeps gymnasts in the sport pursuing a hobby/sport they love which is fantastic.

Sarah Warren-Smith Pre School Parent

Gymnastics was so much more then a Sport to me not only did it teach me to get physically fit, strong and flexible, it taught me discipline and hard work. It also made me mentally strong and taught me to never give up no matter what obstacles get in the way. Being part of L & G was like being part of another family. People were always there to support you and to have fun with. Being a coach also gave me a chance to give back to the sport and see younger gymnasts develop and grow over the years. Without gymnastics I wouldn’t be the person I am today!

Jane Bird Former Gymnast & Coach

Both our daughters (age 6 & 10) thoroughly enjoy their classes every week. There is a fantastic balance of fun, enjoyment & hard work. It has been a joy to see them both develop both physically and mentally through their training and performances as part of the club.
