About NOX GYM

North Oxford Gymnastics – NOX GYM – is an acrobatic gymnastics club for children in the Oxford area. Our recreational classes build core strength, agility and flexibility. They are great for kids who have energy to burn and love to learn new skills. But really, whether you’re a beginner or have experience already, it’s all about the fun!

Community at heart

NOX GYM was founded in 2018 by top gymnast Sammy. Having retired from top-level competition in 2012, Sammy now lives in Eynsham with her husband and two children. She understands the need to find activities for kids to enjoy. Noticing the lack of gymnastics in Eynsham, Witney and Oxford, she decided to share her passion for acrobatics and to fulfil her dream of training children in her own club.

Gold-winning Gymnasts

NOX GYM is headed by top gymnasts Sammy and Erica, who have proven their excellence separately and as a duo. They performed together for the first time in 2009, instantly winning Gold. Many more medals, regional and national titles followed – both together and apart – until Sammy’s last competition in 2012, where the duo won Gold at the British National Championships.

Coaching excellence

Since retiring from competitions, Sammy has continued to develop her coaching experience and qualifications. Erica retired from competitive gymnastics in 2017. She has more than five years’ experience in coaching beginners and elite gymnasts alike. She studies Sports, Coaching and Physical Education at Oxford Brookes. All of our coaches share a passion for acrobatic gymnastics and the club’s core values.

Online Classes

While our facilities remain closed due to social distancing measures, we are offering our acrobatic gymnastics classes online (in keeping with British Gymnastics guidelines). Children can do these at home as our coaches instruct and guide them. The purpose of these classes is to keep building core strength and maintain kids’ flexibility and agility. This way, we won’t lose progress until we can resume practice in our Eynsham gym.

Start with safety

Safety and wellbeing is a fundamental part of gymnastics. It builds the foundations of everything we do. Whether we’re lifting, climbing, jumping, leaping or landing: safe practice makes for best practice.

Respect for all

We treat everyone with respect, honesty and positive reinforcement. Be kind to other gymnasts and the coaches — but don’t forget yourself. After all, respect for ourselves gives us strength, courage and pride. And respect for others gives even more.

Tortoise over hare

You don’t need to rush to get to where you’re going. Remember the tortoise. Slow and steady. Doing things right is better than doing them quickly, and there are no shortcuts. Learning the correct technique first means we’ll go much further later. Practice makes perfect and patience makes masters.

Let’s have fun

Gymnastics is fun. Whether we’re learning new skills, perfecting others, creating dance routines or playing warm-up games: we’re here to have fun. So jump for joy when you succeed and show us that smile when you’re dancing. We will laugh and smile along with you in all your joy and success!

We’re a team

We are one team, with one spirit. When one gymnast succeeds, we all succeed. So we cheer for everyone, encourage each other and lift up those who fall. Positive energy is powerful. The support we give to others makes us stronger in return, just like the musketeers: all for one and one for all.

Don’t hold back

We can’t all be on top of our game all the time, and that’s OK. Let us know what’s going on and how we can help. Share your moments with us — both great and small, good and bad. We’re here to answer your questions, help you with your struggles and celebrate your success with you.
