Total Gymnastics is a dedicated gymnastics company set up by Olympic Bronze Medallist Beth Tweddle MBE to provide gymnastics classes around the UK in partnership with local schools and leisure centres.
We are a registered gymnastics club with British Gymnastics and we also have our own in-house gymnastics programme, Gym Stars.
In the Queen’s New Years Honours list 2010, Beth was awarded an MBE for her success, commitment and dedication to the sport of gymnastics. This dedication is the force behind Total Gymnastics where our aim is to give every child the opportunity to have a go at gymnastics
We aim for children aged 2 - 7 to work through our Beth Tweddle Gym Stars awards scheme where they can learn the basic fundamental moves of the sport, have fun, make new friends and achieve badges, certificates and stickers on the way. Our age 8+ gymnasts will work through the British Gymnastics Proficiency and Advanced Proficiency Awards and can train for up to 2 hours a day. The awards scheme are the main focus of our classes, however there is a key development pathway within the academies where the gymnasts can participate in displays within the academy and some in-house and beginner level competitions. This gives them a taste of competitive gymnastics and can prepare them to move onto another club, if they wanted to get into a more competitive environment.
We will never push our gymnasts into that environment, but we do understand that some of our gymnasts may want to do more than what we can offer; if this is the case, we will be more than happy to work with you to source another club in the local area and liaise with the coaches in that club for your son or daughter to join them. We would never hold any of our gymnasts back from what they want to achieve within the sport; we will just be thankful that we had the opportunity to be a part of their journey.
We aim for our sessions to be fun, productive and structured, with the gymnasts working with experienced and enthusiastic coaches who we hope will give them a fantastic first experience of gymnastics, and help them develop their skills.
