All new gymnasts will begin their gymnastics journey in these classes. The classes are specifically designed to improve fundamental movements and develop key areas such as balance, strength, co-ordination and flexibility. The gymnasts will play fun warm up games followed by group work spent on the Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor. They will also get the opportunity to run, jump and play in our purpose built foam pit. The main emphasis of our recreational gymnastics program is to have fun.

This Physical Preparation work will consist of various strength/shape exercises and basic flexibility work. 

Once gymnasts can achieve these shapes with ease, they will then be ready for the next step. This will include more hours/days trained, opportunities to represent their club and county.
