Total Gymnastics was set up in 2009 with Steve parry (Olympic Bronze medalist swimmer) and quietly ran in the background whilst I was still competing. I knew my passion was to give every child the opportunity to try gymnastics but did I have the skills to enable me to become a Company Director?
With a lot of help and support from both Steve and those around me, the answer is yes! I don’t by any means know everything but in many ways it is very similar to when I was 7 years old in the gym. I have so much to learn, I will make mistakes but it is an exciting time.
The main thing is I am very passionate about what I do and I have now realised that my gymnastics career taught me so much more than winning medals and those life skills are now helping me in my everyday life.
I want to share that experience through my work with Switch the Play and help athletes at every level through a smooth transition.
