Our Gymfinity Kids Head Coach, Kai Filby, accomplished 6th place at the 2018 Adult Gymnastics British Championships in August.

The event took place at Lilleshall National Sports Centre on the 25th and 26th August where adult Gymnasts took part across the artistic, acrobatic, trampoline and tumbling disciplines.

This was Kai’s second Adult British Championships, we caught up with the Head Coach to find out more:

How did it feel to compete in the Adult British Gymnastics championships?

It was an amazing experience! I take pride in competing at such a high level against ex International and GB Gymnasts.

How would your friends and family describe you?

My friends and family would describe me and extremely sporty, outgoing, big-hearted, caring, but also lots of fun!

When did you first start learning gymnastics?

I attended my first gymnastics class when I was three years old, I fell in love and it just progressed from there.

What do you love most about gymnastics?

It’s difficult to choose just one aspect, I’ve loved the sport from such a young age. I’ve always said gymnastics feels like learning to fly. It’s been amazing in different ways at different times in my life. From being a kid in a playground showing off my cartwheels to my teenage years and now as an adult with the social side of it meeting new people in competitions. I love every aspect of it, especially wearing glamourous leotards!

What is your greatest achievement as a Gymnast?

I feel like my greatest achievement competition-wise is a winning my Bronze Medal at British championships in 2017. However, I feel as though my greatest accomplishment overall is passing on my knowledge by teaching the children in my classes.

What’s your favourite thing about being a Coach?

I love seeing the children in my classes master skills I’ve taught them and seeing how happy it makes them. I believe in the Gymfinity Kids philosophy of having a positive and encouraging approach to coaching

Has gymnastics helped you in any other aspects of your life?

Yes, very much so, it has helped me a lot with other sports. I play Netball for the Chelmsford league and although I may lack height I make up for it with my speed, agility and jumps for interceptions. 

What advice would you give to younger Gymnasts?

Always believe you can and have confidence. If you have a goal and you want to reach it then keep going until you do so, it might take a day it may take a year, but it will be worth it once you reach it.
