Olga Berzing-Head Coach & Club Founder
“Gymnastics is my life”, was the main phrase that inspired my life and goals in gymnastics, since the age of 6. This inspiration along with 36 hours of training a week helping me achieve my goal of master of sport of USSR in Rhythmic Gymnastics the highest national accolade which I reached at 14, I continued competing for Lithuanian Soviet Republic where I won numerous gold’s and silvers medals, until 17 years old when I stopped competing and used my experience and skills in training as a coach. I then realized my next goal was to pass my knowledge and experience to others who could achieve their own goals in gymnastics.
I came to UK in 1999 and started coaching Artistic gymnastics in a club in London where I qualified as a Women’s Artistic Club Coach, Pre-school Club Coach, and Regional Judge then took a course and qualified as Rhythmic Gymnastics Club Coach. After working at this club for nearly 7 years I wanted to get back in to coaching Rhythmic Gymnastics. In January 2007 I started my club combining Rhythmic and Artistic skills as there was only 1 Rhythmic club in London. I had the idea of offering my students either or both Rhythmic and Artistic skills.i then became chair person of the Rhythmic technical comitee for london gymnastics from 2009 -2014 when i stepped down due to family and club comitments .Within this period i helped grow Rythmic gymnastics in london to a high level with over 8 rythmic clubs and london region has the highsets achievment record in uk Elite itself now has 4 gymnasts representing GB internationally and Eva Balova on the England team coaching staff.
