Hi! I’m Helena. I’m the head coach and manager here at Totem. I have 10+years of coaching experience and I am a level 2 British Gymnastics qualified coach with a background as a professional dancer. I love creating a fun and exciting space for children to learn an amazing sport - gymnastics. My approach to teaching is to make it fun, inspiring and offer variety. I love bringing my personality into the sessions and connecting with the children. I believe every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy lifestyle and being active. When I’m not teaching, I love to handstand. Some might say I can balance better on my hands than my feet.
Hi there, I’m Nikko! I’ve been in the coaching game for a while now, from football to CrossFit - which is where I found a love of all things gymnastics. I enjoy creating a positive learning space and being a role model for those I coach.
Fun fact - I grew up in the Bahamas and played World Cup qualifiers for my national team.
Hi I’m Tom and I’m the welfare officer here at Totem Gymnastics. I have been teaching parkour and freerunning classes in Greater Manchester since 2015. During this time I have had the pleasure of working with pupils from as young as 4 years old right through to adults up to 75 years old. I have also been lucky enough to work closely with The Rio Ferdinand Foundation, Salford Community Leisure and Lancashire Sportf to deliver quality sporting activities to a wide variety of youth groups across the region.When I’m not teaching you can usually find me standing upside down or chasing my 2 kittens around and I’m always happy to talk.The safety and well-being of all Totem Club members is my priority and I want to ensure that all concerns and enquiries are handled promptly and effectively.If you have any issues at all that you would like to discuss, you can usually find me around at the venue or you can always contact me directly on 07508685844
