Gemma, mum to three boys and wife to Neil Coles is the Head Coach of the Head Over Heels Gymnastics and CEO of HOH’s Gymnastics. Gemma founded the gymnastics club back in the year 2000 when she was just 18, and since has never looked back!
Gemma’s ambition did not just stop at three kids, a husband and a gym club….she went on to create the Head Over Heels Gymnastics Books, DVDs & Apps in 2012. Since then she has sold over 10,000 copies of the books worldwide, not to mention the App downloads and DVDs sold.
Her aim is to make gymnastics more accessible for all and increase global sports participation as a whole. She aims to do this by using her wealth of knowledge & experience of the sport over the past 18 years. One of her most influential mentors Roger Castle MBE, who committed over 60 years of his life to the sport but unfortunately passed away in 2017, helped her to change a childhood dream into the reality that it is today. Her other mentor, Jo Mansbridge, helped nurture Gemma’s passion and drive and has also had a huge impact on building the solid foundations that she uses today.
With a fantastic family to help her achieve this vision, and the help of friends and colleagues – Head Over Heels Gymnastics is here to stay and is growing every day with close to 10,000 likes on our Facebook page we believe we are just at the tip of the iceberg of what is to come.
