Coffee with ... gymnastics coach Sarah Warburton

Name: Sarah Warburton

Occupation: Gymnastics coach at the Gladstone Gymnastics Club.

Years lives in Gladstone: I have been here eight-and-a-half months. I came for the job from Manchester where I grew up.

What do you love about where you live? The sun. That is what I came for, that and the gymnastics. People keep saying is it really hot, but it is not really, I like it.

How do you take your favourite drink? A good bottle of red wine will always do me nicely.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon you can find me... in the gym. If I could choose to be anywhere I would be in a pub at a beer garden.

When I was young, my dream was to...be a teacher and a gymnastics coach. I did achieve that because I was a teacher in Manchester.

It is a stressful one, but in the classroom and gym you get to see the improvement from the start of the year to the end.

I can't remember the last time I...had a good bottle of wine with my best friend.

When I feel like splurging I...will go for coffee and lunch and indulge.

My favourite holiday destination is...everyone I talk to here has not heard of it, but Lanzarote. It is one of the Canary Islands.

My phone...is something I can't live without. It has my whole life in it. Absolutely everything. If it went missing that would have me lost.

I don't know...who would play me in a movie about my life. But I do know I would like to play a minion in a movie about them.

What are you spruiking? Gladstone Gymnastics Club.

It is a very friendly club where everyone works together to make the kids achieve and have fun.
