A background of gymnastics establishes a base that will aid athletes of all sports. Gymnastics encompasses a extremely broad range of movements and develops a keen body awareness.
Fun - Lets face it. Gymnastics is fun. Rolling, climbing, swinging and flipping are all activities that kids do for play. Our program expands on this natural play.
Strength - In terms of strength to weight ratio gymnasts are unparallelled. This strength is developed primarly through bodyweight exercises. In most school fitness tests, school records are held by gymnasts.
Agility - Just watching gymnasts, it is clear the high degree of agility that it develops. This keen kinesthetic awareness will remain with participants for a lifetime.
Flexibility - Being able to move effeciently and effectively is dramatically impacted by flexiblity. Having a high degree of flexiblity simply makes moving easier. Mobility is a major factor in physical troubles as we age. The flexibility developed through gymnastics, as well as an understanding of how to stretch properly will prevent many of the maladies associated with limited mobility.
USA Gymnastic's tagline is "Start Here - Go Anywhere". This is addressing the fact that a background in gymnastics develops skills and attributes that will carry over to any other sport.
