My Story

Coach Kylie

Hi! I'm Kylie :)

I started my journey in the world of gymnastics over two decades ago (Wow...that sounds scary!) with Kindergym Victoria. This is where I realised my natural affinity for working with children. However, life's twists and turns led me to explore different avenues, and for a brief period, I delved into the world of property valuation. It was during this stint that I realized that the corporate world was not for me.

Having an obvious passion for encouraging children's growth and well-being, I started FAF Kids (Fit and Fun Kids), an innovative outdoor gymnastics and movement program. Despite its promising start, fate intervened in the form of the Covid-19 pandemic, abruptly halting the budding venture.  

The FAF Kids parents would send me heartfelt messages telling me how much their kids missed "Coach Ky" so feeling for the kids and parents being housebound and under stimulated I created a Youtube channel and a few videos so that the kids could still do the programs at home. Though these videos may not have achieved viral status, they served their purpose by entertaining the kids and getting them moving. (If you want a giggle, the Youtube link is in the footer!)

Through subsequent jobs in the gymnastics and fitness industry, I recognized a common thread: the need for genuine connection, energy, and a playful rapport with the children.

So, here I am, once again running my own show and loving every minute of it. Because let's face it, when your work feels more like play, you know you're onto something good. Here's to many more adventures, laughs, and cartwheels with the coolest kids around!

Making Exercise fun!

At Next Steps, I'm on a mission to redefine children's exercise as an adventure filled with laughter, excitement, and boundless fun. My vision is to create a world where every child eagerly looks forward to moving their bodies, discovering the joy of physical activity in playful and imaginative ways.

Children's exercise shouldn't be a chore—it's should be fun and we aim to achieve this through positive reinforcement and a spirit of camaraderie, to foster a sense of confidence and accomplishment in every athlete.

I believe that by infusing every movement with fun and excitement, I can instill a lifelong love of fitness and well-being.

Next Steps programs are designed to spark imaginations and ignite enthusiasm, transforming traditional exercises into engaging games, challenges, and adventures. From obstacle courses to dance parties, I strive to make every moment of movement an opportunity for laughter and enjoyment.

Next Steps classes create environments where children feel encouraged, supported, and empowered to embrace their unique abilities.

Join us in making exercise a highlight of every child's day and helping to build a community where children not only thrive physically but also develop essential life skills such as team work, resilience, and creativity and where the joy of movement becomes the cornerstone of a happy, healthy childhood.
