JUNE 30, 2021

Antonia Nnyanzi

CEO and MD of Bridge Park Gymnastics Club, UK.

 Antonia shared that her secret for survival, growth and consistency is PASSION. Purely passion. If you are going into a business be sure to do it out of PASSION. Not because someone else is doing it or just for the money because eventually, there will be an end point and you would have wasted your time. 
 
 
Antonia Nyanzi is the CEO and MD of Bridge Park Gymnastics Club, UK. Born in London, Antonia always had an interest in Gymnastics and started attending gymnastics classes from the age of 4 years old.
 
Antonia trained in Brent, and completed her coaching qualification at age 15. Since then Antonia coached and created programs at several local sports centers.  With her passion for coaching, Antonia began working in partnership with Brent Council to offer free taster sessions within their Summer University program, for children from age 11-16 years old. Antonia has curated programs for numerous primary and secondary schools, offering breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs.
 
Antonia studied Media Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. And set Bridge Park Gymnastics club up in 2009, aged 20, whilst working towards her degree. 
 
Since 2009 the club has grown from strength to strength, becoming the first and only club in London Borough of Brent to be awarded the Gym Mark accreditation by the National Governing body, British Gymnastics.
