Head trampolining coach Rachel
Rachel
Head Coach

I started trampolining when I was 7 & have always loved it. For me, the world spinning around & upside down is the most fun exercise I could do. The feeling of defying gravity & the adrenaline of going higher, somersaulting more, twisting faster is incredible. The satisfaction of working hard on a new skill, then finally achieving it is brilliant. I competed for years & still have all the trophies, medals, awards & certificates from past competitions. But I have always preferred learning new tricks, rather than perfecting certain ones for use in a competition. That's why I wanted to set up a recreational club locally, to progress many trampolining skills whilst in a fun & enjoyable atmosphere, without the stress of an upcoming competition, being judged on neatness, or compared to others.

I started coaching when I was 17 in 2007. I love my job because I get to share my passion with others. I enjoy the diversity of working with many different personalities & teaching both children & adults. I have lots of experience working with various disabilities & really enjoy coaching these ones. Coaching can be challenging, but it is so rewarding to see the enjoyment & progress of each individual.

George
Level 2 Trampolining Coach
Born 19.07.76 (yes I am old). Married to the gorgeous Lisa with two beautiful budding trampolinists who don’t listen to me (Libby 11 and Isaac 8). Started trampolining at the age of 15 due to parents not allowing me to play rugby. I had one go of a trampoline during a wet play and thought “I want to be able to flip”. Always promised myself I would still do and be part of trampolining so I could teach my own children (well that worked out well). So have been a coach for 18 years or so, but have been bouncing for 25. Spent many years at a competitive club & even competing in leotards (yes they do my size). Really enjoy coaching and bouncing still to this day, can often be seen somersaulting followed by a trip to the hospital. Proud to be part of Tumbling Trampoliners!

Yannick
Web Developer, Financial Advisor, Photographer, Trampoline Builder
Born in 1991 (yes I'm young). I'm French and came to the UK for the lovely British weather. I have been trampolining since 2014. I initially started because I wanted to learn how to sommersault and do flips safely, as I wanted to do them in parkour and snowboarding (I have been snowboarding for more than 10 years). Tumbling Trampoliners was the perfect club to learn as it's recreational, there is no competition and everyone is friendly! I'm a web developer - and no I do not live in a room in the dark in front of a computer, eating crisps and not seeing anyone. I have built the website you are looking at now, done marketing, design, photography, building & maintaining the trampolines etc. A bit of everything really! My hobbies are sports, photography and travel!

Liv
Proficiency Award Scheme Trampolining Coach
I started trampolining at the age of 12 in 2015, because after years of gymnastics training, I’d passed all my levels and wanted to start something new. I love to combine the two sports and perfect my skills on the trampoline in new and interesting ways. I started coaching at TT in May 2018, and I’m loving it! I like working with a range of ages, abilities and personalities and I’m really happy to be a part of the club 🙂

Proficiency Award Scheme Trampolining Coach
I'm Jumping Jewels I only started trampolining in May 2017 when I brought my children to the club, but it was love at first bounce! I've progressed like wildfire and now I'm becoming a coach, which I'm super-happy about! I love inspiring people and defying the limits that society puts on Mummies, daring to do crazy things and helping others find their self-belief. It's an honour to be a teeny part of such a wonderful team that Tumbling Trampoliners truly is! Let's do it! Xx

Proficiency Award Scheme Trampolining Coach
I started trampolining at high school, when I was 13, then started again at age 24 with Tumbling Trampoliners (a friend suggested it). Since then I've been hooked and am currently working on award level 9. I love being passionate about trampolining and inspiring children and adults to feel the same. The great thing about coaching children is seeing their progress and best of all, seeing them enjoying it.

I was born in 2001 & have been trampolining with Tumbling Trampoliners since May 2016, although I had already mastered quite a few things on the trampoline at home. I love trying out new tricks and trampolining goes well with Parkour one of my other hobbies. I enjoy helping others to learn new things too.
