Discover your inner child while learning new skills and exercising your whole muscular system!
Adult Gymnastics class returns from it’s winter break for Term 2 2017/2018 on Thursday 8th February 8.20 – 9.35pm. Read on to find out more about this fun class!
Who is adult gymnastics class for?
Men and women aged 18+ with a sense of fun, adventure and looking to try something new and different!
Who does adult gymnastics?
Our current members range from early 20’s to their 50’s, men and women, also including our coaches who like to have a play around in the gym. We have had Crossfit enthusiasts come in looking for help with their handstands. Please note we do not teach calisthenics, we teach purely gymnastics! Our members are former gymnasts, or former wannabe gymnasts or complete beginners!
Do I have to have done gymnastics before?
No, not at all. The majority of our class have never done gymnastics. We cater for beginners up to ex-gymnasts and coaches. No experience is necessary, many of our current members have come through our doors, very shy, having never done a tumble before and after the first class or after a couple of weeks have left having performed a cartwheel, handstand or a front somersault! We also have had many adults attend class who have definitely missed their true calling as a gymnast!
Why do adult gymnastics?
Gymnastics is known to have lots of benefits to the body and mind, including:
- Gymnastics is fun – let out your inner child and have fun while exercising!
- You will notice an improvement in your flexibility, strength, fitness, co-ordination and mental focus
- You will learn new skills
- It will help you overcome fear
- It helps you to learn how to fall without hurting yourself
- You will use muscles you have never used before
- You will challenge yourself and earn a great sense of self achievement
- You will learn to laugh at yourself!
What happens in a typical class?
Class kicks off with a group cardio warm up with some body conditioning mixed in. We then stretch out to prepare for working on the apparatus. We spread our time out between all of the apparatus; Bars, Beam, Floor, Vault, Trampoline and Tumble Track. We finish off with a gentle stretch and cool down at the end. Above all there will be a lot of laughing! Check out this great video from British Gymnastics!
What do I need to wear/bring?
Leotards are not compulsory but if you really want to…! Wear something comfortable, for women we recommend leggings and a tshirt and for men fitted tracksuit bottoms or shorts and a tshirt. Bring a drink and an open mind!
