Gymnastics is a total body sport that calls on mastering various aspects of fitness and exercise. This includes (physically) strength, mobility, flexibility, endurance, power, agility, balance and stability.

Rolls, forward and backward

Handstands

Cartwheels

Flexibility and splits

Jump backs

Bridges/backbends (per individual ability and limitations)

Body awareness and muscle memory

Movement patterns

 

Choose the gymnastics skills and tumbling class if:

  • You want to learn specific skills or how to tumble

  • We’re once a gymnast

  • Are curious about gymnastics and learning It

  • Want a new, different sport and workout to do

 

 

 

Choose BOTH Skills/Tumbling AND Conditioning Workout if:

  • You want to learn gymnastics AND get stronger

  • Doing one or the other does mean SOME overlap, but not entirely. To get better at a skill you must DO that skill even if you do so with modifications, you MUST TRAIN IT.

  • Cross training (conditioning) DOES serve to help you get stronger, however it doesn’t train you for the complete movements of Gymnastics.

 

 

**If you’re doing the gymnastics skills and tumbling class, then it is HIGHLY recommended that you ALSO sign up for the conditioning workout.

 

 

**Should you wait to do the skills and tumbling class and just do the conditioning workout if you want to learn gymnastics?

NO, it's recommended that you do BOTH the skills/tumbling AND the conditioning workout. The reason being is they compliment each other. One helps you understand, apply and do better in the other. Yes, understanding and doing skills will help you see WHY you’re doing certain conditioning.

There’s also always a limit and learning curve to achieving and improving any skill so holding off on the skills class until you’re ‘ready’ doesn’t mean you’ll be ‘ready’ when that time comes. You’re ‘READY’ when and by taking action itself. Action is DOING the skills. I’m talking about drills, technique, and modifications of the skills you want to learn which you WILL do during the skills and tumbling class, but will NOT do in the conditioning workout.
