THE COACHING TEAM


Lauren Gillard (Director and Head Coach of Airborne Gymnastics Club)

Level 2 General Gymnastics, Level 1 Women’s Artistic, First Aid Qualified, Disability awareness module

“I have a real passion for gymnastics and always have done from a very young age.  Although originally being a competitive gymnast in both Women’s artistic and Sports Aerobics and later on becoming a member of a gym fusion group, it was only when I began to coach that I realised how much knowledge I had and that I could pass this onto the younger generation whilst also thoroughly enjoying my job!  My biggest achievement as a competitor was two gold medals at the British Championships U12 within Sports Aerobics, but since then my achievements have been seen through the gymnasts I coach ”
