My name is Mikaela Bates, Founder, Director and Head Coach of M.A.B Gymnastics Academy.
I absolutely loved sport as a child. Whether it was being part of the school netball team, racing on sports day or cartwheeling around the garden, I was always very active. After many years competing in gymnastics and trampolining, both regionally and nationally, I wanted to share my knowledge and experience by inspiring and becoming a role model to the younger generation. I am passionate about sport and fitness and have been coaching for the past 15 years. I love helping children to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams.
I also have a BSc degree in Psychology, am a trained Drawing and Talking practitioner and recently qualified as a yoga teacher. I am part of a national league volleyball team and won the title for beginners Latin dancing in Blackpool 2019.
I founded M.A.B Gymnastics Academy in 2014. We are a small coaching company and pride ourselves in delivering high quality, fun and engaging lessons in a safe, nurturing environment. Our aim is to provide children with a positive, happy experience to last a lifetime. Our lessons allow children to develop their core fundamental skills, whist also encouraging them to reach their full potential. We provide a number of services including: PE lessons, before and after school clubs, school competitions and holiday camps. During lockdown, M.A.B expanded their services to offer Stretch and Relaxation classes. I believe a healthy mind and body is the recipe for a ‘happy’ being.
I am looking forward to watching the children blossom in confidence and develop their skills during our lessons together at Blisworth School.
