What is Sport Aerobics?

Sport aerobics also referred to as aerobic gymnastics, is a sport where the objective is to perform several high-intensity gymnastic moves and patterns that are synchronised with background music. The sport, which originated as a variation of traditional aerobics, later integrated aspects of sports acrobatics and rhythmic gymnastics, dance and choreography.

Sport Aerobics Routines

Sport aerobics consist of a routine that lasts up to 90 seconds and includes movements from four elements: dynamic strength, static strength, balance and flexibility. Sport aerobic routines are both individual and team events for both, men, women and mixed teams. Each routine should include moment patterns with both arms and legs, and pushups, high leg kicks and jumping jacks are compulsory movements, while the entire routine should be performed as music choreography.
