Did you know we're finalists at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards RICHARD'S PASSION FOR GYMNASTICS

Richard started gymnastics at the age of 4. His gymnastics coaches helped him to channel his energy in a positive direction and helped make him the man he is today. He became a South East gymnastics champion. As well as becoming a successful gymnast he was also a child actor appearing in TV commercials and theatre shows. He went on to become a well known stuntman but decided to sacrifice a lucrative career to put his full energy into building gymnastics clubs to allow more children (and their parents) along with coaches to benefit from the sport.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE

Richard is passionate about building children's confidence through gymnastics and his mission is to teach children valuable life skills through the sport of gymnastics. He believes that emotional intelligence is just as important, if not more so than academic intelligence and wants to make sure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Richard says, 
"I fell in love with gymnastics at an early age and my passion for the sport encouraged me to follow my dream of offering the sport to EVERY child at a grassroots level as I personally benefited hugely from learning gymnastics as a child and I want to share this knowledge with everyone."

Richard is passionate about personalised learning which is at the heart of all the clubs. In 2016 he was invited by the TED group to present a TEDx talk about personalised learning and how we can help support the schools system in the UK by transforming children’s learning adventures.
