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 fast-paced 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.

Proactivity Sport Aerobics Programs align with the Victorian Curriculum

Proactivity's Sports Aerobics program delivers safe, fun, and exciting lessons that focus on fundamental movements and aerobic movement sequences. Games and activities provide students with opportunities to learn through movement and support them in building the range and complexity of fundamental skills they are able to perform. From middle year primary and beyond students are encouraged to have the confidence to perform choreographed aerobics routines. Through active participation, students will develop cooperation skills and engage in teamwork activities. The sequential program is designed to encourage students to engage with and combine aerobic movement patterns through numerous movement-based activities and games, with additional opportunities for performance.
