Adult Gymnastics will return from it’s summer break on Thursday October 8th, 8.20 – 9.30pm.
Who is Adult Gymnastics class for?
The class is for both Men and Women aged 18+. We cater for all standards, from absolute beginner to ex-gymnasts and coaches and always encourage our participants to take the class at their own pace.Our current members age range is from 19 year olds to those in their 40’s, men and women. We have several ex-gymnasts in class who love to continue to work their skills, without the pressure of competitions or deadlines!
We must emphasise that 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?
The benefits are endless, for example:
- 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
- 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 cardio warm up with some body conditioning mixed in. We then spend a couple of minutes stretching out to prepare for working on the apparatus. We spread our time out between all of the apparatus; Bars, Beam, Floor, Vault and Trampette. We finish off with a gentle stretch and cool down at the end. Above all there will be a lot of laughing!
What do I wear?
No leotards necessary! We recommend shorts, leggings, tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts.
