A WINDHOEK BASED BOUTIGYE GYM SPECIALIZING IN TRAMPOLINE & TUMBLING GYMNASTICS, TEAMGYM
Chalk was born out of our passion to offer young, aspiring gymnasts an innovative, motivating and physically engaging training environment, without compromising quality. Gymnastics is an aesthetically beautiful sport, yet one of the toughest disciplines there is. Knowing the demanding nature of the sport, the goal of Chalk is to provide a quality experience of gymnastics that is safe, enjoyable and enables every participant to reach their potential.
MEET THE FOUnDER
Hi my name is Fanni.
I am a former professional gymnast from Finland. I have represented my country in several European and World Championships during my 19-year long career in Artistic Gymnastics. After finishing my professional career, I switched disciplines and competed in TeamGym for both the Finnish and Swedish National Teams.
In 2010 I started coaching Artistic Gymnastics and became the responsible coach for the Finnish Pre-Junior National Team Circuit. Shortly thereafter I put my coaching career on hold while pursuing my Master’s degree in Business Management in Sweden but returned to the sport after graduating.
I have lived in Windhoek for the past three years during which I have become deeply involved in the Namibian gymnastics scene, mostly focusing on the development of young gymnasts.
Having witnessed the popularity of Trampoline & Tumbling (T&T) in the country, the idea of launching Chalk, a club solely focusing on trampoline related gymnastics disciplines, was born. Chalk Gymnastics and Performance Training was launched in February 2019 and the club quickly became one of the main actors in the Namibian T&T section.
During the first year of operations Chalk produced multiple National Champions between the age categories of 7-16. We further sent a team to Finland to compete in FinCup, an international trampoline competition, and had athletes earning medals for Namibia at the annual Region 5 competition.
Year 2019 was just the beginning of something exciting, innovative, and memorable. Bounce on board, Chalk welcomes you to experience the unique and powerful form of movement – gymnastics!
