Manners Cost Nothing

Making a Difference to Children’s livesOur Child Development Programme can help make a REAL difference to children both Physically and Emotionally.We let all our members hear a lot of “Please,” “Thank you,” “You’re welcome,” and “Excuse me” as we interact with them throughout the class.And we always address your little person with the same politeness we would an adult.Every one of our sessions is carefully planned to teach your child to understand that they need to Share, Turn Take and be Considerate to their peers. This will help your child not only in class but in all aspects of their life.The physical element of our programme is delivered through Non-competitive gymnastics and is designed to Build physical skills week by week giving all our members the opportunity to shine as they build their skills . Most of all your child will be having lots of FUN whilst learning all these important Life Skills.We have various age appropriate classes to choose from starting from classes suitable for babies from 4 months through to 12 years. If you have a little person who would benefit from being part of our Wonderful Programme we would love to hear from you. Similarly if you know a family with children please forward this email on to them.We are so confident in our programme we offer a FREE NO OBLIGATION TRIAL to everyone, giving you and your child the opportunity to experience one of our fun filled sessions for yourselves .Balance and Beam “Helping little people cartwheel into a Happy Healthy Life”

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 FunSocialising with new friendsLearning how to turn takeLearning how to shareLearning 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 daysLearn how to be safe risk taking....all the skills our children learn are transferable into their everyday lifeOur 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.Top 10 Health Benefits of being a gymnastContact us NOW to book your free taster session!.Could you have a future Gymnastic STAR in your household?Here at Balance & Beam we truly believe our Gymnastic based Child Development Programme can help all children, irrelevant of their ability to be the very best they can be. The recent Gymnastic World Cup Event held in Birmingham is a fantastic example of what can be achieved through hard work and commitment. Developing this positive mind-set helps children to succeed in all walks of the lives both now and in the future.
