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