The main benefits of gymnastics are the mental and physical aspects of this sport. This sport is mainly about building strength both physically and mentally. It increases many aspects of physical strength including flexibility, balance and hand-eye coordination. Not only does it help kids stay active it also forms healthy habits throughout life. Under a supervised setting, it is a place where children and teens can feel safe growing interpersonal and other strengths in life. It can be a teaching tool for many kids on learning about your abilities and learning to discipline yourself to reach your goals. From perseverance to mental toughness, gymnastics can help en-grain these traits in athletes. There are many reasons why to enroll your child to try and engage in one of these classes. Reach out to us and see why your child should try one of our classes, we’d be happy to talk with you about our experience and training in our school.
What type of gymnastics classes are there?
Most classes that are offered are based around the four disciplines of gymnastics. The main four are Artistic, Rhythmic, Acro, and Tumbling. Many of the gyms usually focus on one kind of gymnastics or the more popular disciplines. There are few like this gym that has a more rounded approach and focus on the broad training of gymnastics to find your strengths. There are many introductory classes that we offer for beginners and for people of all ages. From tumbling to rhythmic gymnastics we have multiple disciplines for beginners to advanced students. We also have separate summer camps for children to help grow their interest to see if gymnastics is a good fit. After progressing in classes, you may be asked to join or try out for a team. There are many different levels and programs for teams.
When to start gymnastics?
For most kids, you could start gymnastics at any point in time. We offer classes where toddlers can be assisted and watched by parents. Truly even as they're crawling around you could come to have fun with them in the gym. Check out the levels and classes we offer, you’ll see we have a wide range of age groups and camps.
When is it too late to start gymnastics?
Anyone is never too old to start gymnastics, just like any other sport! Progression and gaining balance is always important no matter what stage of life you’re in. Gymnastics is also a great way to have fun while working out and enjoying progress with other people who love gymnastics as we do! It’s one of the best ways to stay fit, it requires many muscle groups, balance, and hand-eye coordination. This sport can improve the quality and longevity of your life no matter what level you’re at. We have a specific Adult Beginner Class that many people have enjoyed.
What should I wear to the gymnastics class?
Leotards are the main clothing that is worn in gymnastics class. It’s also very important to make sure your hair is securely pulled back. Boys wear various attire including just shorts and a workout shirt.
How do I get better?
Most gymnasts rise to a high level through many hours of practice. Through repetition, gymnasts can turn into Olympians. Just like any other sport, the more hours you put in the better you will be. Whether you’re practicing at home or in the gym, each day you can be better through repetition. Mastering the basics is the foundation to grow upon and improve your skills. Perfecting your form is the only way to grow in the sport.
What skills do I need to move up levels?
Progressing to the next level requires a certain minimum score to advance. Your coach needs to believe in your skills and that you’re physically and mentally ready for the next level. Some reasons for being held from another level will only help you to grow stronger and progress. Sometimes just the fact of needing to get stronger physically will keep you at your current level. There are several different programs and levels including the JO program or the Gold division and the Xcel program. There is a Gymnastics Level Guide and requirements checklist to see where and how far you want to go and what you must do to get there.
