About me:
I am the founder of the Gymnastics Academy in Doha. I have been running this club for over 13 years.

I am a British trained physical education specialist and gymnastics coach.

The World governing body of sport recognizes gymnastics as one ot the three key sports for children. We believe in teaching gymnastics in a safe and happy environment so that children can develop their full potential.
The coaches at the club all hold international coaching qualifications.



I am Colette and am a Senior Coach since January 2013. I started gymnastics when I wat 6 years old and did competitive gymnastics as well as acro-gymnastics and tumbling on National level in South Africa. In 2006,  Gymnastics South Australia offered me a coaching job and I immigrated with my family. I moved to Qatar in 2012. I am a South African Gymnastics and Australian Gymnastics certified coach.

Favourite part of coaching: "Feeling that I make a difference in someone's life - whether it is getting that skill or learning not to give up - but get up and try that is what life is all about!"

I am Alina and I believe in having a healthy and active lifestyle. I was a gymnast for 12 years in Romania. I am a Physical Education Graduate, with a speciality in Woman’s Artistic Gymnastics. I believe that it is very important to follow and fight for your dreams, think positively and believe in yourself. Be strong, have fun and never give up. Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you all.
I love gymnastics and spent 10 training as a gymnast. I have gymnastics coaching qualifications from the National Institute of Sport and Physical Education in Tunisia, I am also a MAG judge. In my opinion the most important part of coaching is to motivate the children to learn new skills and help them gain confidence in the gym. "Follow your dream and make it come true"

Hi, my name is Elna Fouche, I am from South Africa. I have been doing gymnastics and tumbling my whole life, either as a gymnast or a coach. I love the discipline and dedication it takes to do well and believe that translates to your everyday life as well. I enjoy seeing the excitement on the children's faces when they get a move right and the sense of accomplishment it gives them and the confidence to try something new. I look forward to helping each gymnast reach their goals and potential.
