Gymnast Fit

Gymast Fit is not a gymnastics class in which you learn to somersault, back flip, handspring etc. It is a class designed to develop strength, flexibility, balance and Power through exercises used to condition gymnasts.

Strength - This will be achieved through body weight exercises. Body weight exercises are great as they work several muscles in the body at the same time, creating a balanced whole body workout each session, they also require very little equipment so you can do them anywhere!

Flexibility - Most of the skills involved in Gymnast Fit require a certain level of flexibility, flexibility is also important to prevent muscular imbalances and injuires. Therefore we will be using progressive stretching at the end of each session to increase our range of movement, when our muscles are warm and at their most pliable.

Balance - Greater strength acheived through solid technique, and increased flexibilty lead to improved balance.

Power - Some of you may associate this with the word 'plyometrics'. The ability of the body to recruit as many muscle fibers as our nervous system can manage, then co ordinating them to work together in perfect unison so our bodies can gracefully explode through the air! Something gymnasts do best!

Gymnast Fit requires that you have a basic level of fitness, so if you are already engaged in an exercise programme whether it be sports or purely fitness releated, or perhaps you just have an active lifestyle and are looking for something new, then Gymnast Fit could be the perfect class for you.
We will work together to set specific goals, and keep a record book so that you can track your progress as you work your way through the different skills.
