What is Gymnastics?

Gymnastics is a sport that includes exercises requiring balance, strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, and endurance. The dominant movement patterns involved in gymnastics contribute to the development of the arms, legs, shoulders, back, chest, and abdominal muscle groups. It has been described as giving participants the base movement skills to participate in sports.

Benefits of Gymnastics Programs

Of course, the obvious answer is - gymnastics is fun and students all agree, taking part in sessions that include movement such as jumping, rolling, swinging, leaping and balancing is a great way to engage your students in your class. However, there are other benefits as well, including developing strength, flexibility and coordination.

Gymnastics also helps students to learn to follow instructions, to watch, listen and think independently. It increases self-esteem and confidence and provides social interaction with peers. Gymnastics encourages a healthy lifestyle and children learn to love being active! The body control and awareness learnt at gymnastics, is beneficial for other sports, activities and everyday life. Fundamental movement skills are demonstrated, learnt and developed in Gymnastics.
