Gymnastics … It’s NOT just a girl thing!!

Sterotypically, gymnastics has always been seen as a girls’ activity. A bit like football and rugby are ‘for boys’... But that’s just not so. More and more girls are getting into football and rugby and we need that stigma to change with respect to boys ‘getting into gymnastics’ too. 

We’ve seen the trends changing in adult gyms where 'cross fit' and 'functional fitness' are becoming extremely popular with the guys but you need a great foundation & core to be able to do the things they do. How cool is it to do back flips and somersaults and start that 6-pack early? And it’s not just the men who want them, women want them too.

Getting fit and keeping healthy is all about having regular daily physical activities and more importantly doing something that you enjoy and that’s why WE are so much more than a gym class. Yes, we are learning how to do handstands and cartwheels and forward rolls etc., 

BUT we also tick all the boxes that youngsters need to gain a love of sport that will last through to adulthood:

  • Physical Fun
  • Socialising with new friends
  • Learning how to turn take
  • Learning how to share
  • Learning that it’s OK NOT to be able to do something the first time...remember the old adage...if at first you don’t succeed....
  • Being able to let off steam in a safe, fun, nurturing environment – it’s not easy being a child these days
  • Learn how to be safe risk taking....all the skills our children learn are transferable into their everyday life

Our small class sizes held on a weekly basis are designed to develop everyone at their own pace with the main focus being FUN, FUN, FUN for every child.

Our classes have a mix of both boys and girls which is fantastic for the social interaction and development of children. We also have male and female instructors at the gym as we believe that it is important for young children to have both male and female role models. Seeing both women and men working together is representative of how great communities live and work together.

By Introducing children to a gymnastics class you are helping them in all areas of their development.
