About Us

Meet the Team

James Boyes and Natalie Bannigan, Head coaches of JNB Gymnastics Academy, are former national and international gymnasts and high performance coaches who have 28 years experience of teaching at all levels between them.

We see teaching gymnastics as an opportunity to share the knowledge and experience which others have given to us through our fantastic sport. This is why we love coaching children and young people of all ages and what motivates us to try to inspire them to achieve their best every day.

In addition to our excellent training facilities and coaching staff, we have an on-site Café that is the perfect place to grab tea, coffee and cold drinks, plus we have a delicious range of home made treats available daily.
