Personal Gymnastics Sessions for Children in London by a Registered and Qualified Teacher

Methodology

Gymnastics lessons for you or your child/children in the comfort of your own home. You/Your children will learn many gymnastics skills (jumps, balances, rolls, cartwheels, handstands, walkovers, handsprings, somersaults, etc.) and create positive attitudes towards physical activity while developing their strength, flexibility and coordination. You will need just a little bit of space and a yoga/gym mat to start.

For primary school children I can also deliver the Core Proficiency Awards Scheme which has been developed by British Gymnastics (the National Governing Body for the sport of Gymnastics in the UK). These Awards progressively develop core skills such as Balance, Strength, Flexibility & Coordination, with 8 levels of attainment, and provide children with the motivation of earning rewards for achievement in the form of certificates, badges and a gold medal.

Experience

I am Dr Stefan Kolimechkov, and I am a fully insured and qualified personal trainer, gymnastics coach, as well as a registered exercise professional.

I provide gymnastics lessons for children and adults in London in the comfort of your own home.

You can find more information on my website, but with a few words, I have more than 10 years experience in teaching gymnastics at all levels, and my research focuses on assessing physical fitness, physical activity and nutritional diet. I am a Registered Scientist (RSci) in the United Kingdom, as well as the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Physical Education and Sport Science (ISSN 2501 - 1235).

Stefan Kolimechkov is an excellent athlete and frequent competitor. Along with his athletic experience he is a well established Sports Scientist and a full time Gymnastics coach and personal trainer. I am particularly impressed about how he develops a person’s fitness and physical strength by laying a strong foundation. In terms of developing more advanced Gymnastics skills, Stefan recommends the right exercises of progression and always keeps in mind the importance of flexibility. Thank you Stefan for your lessons !
