4 top reasons your son should do gymnastics classesFREERUNNING CLASSES

It is true to say that we have a greater proportion of girls at our gymnastics clubs but recently we have seen an increase in boys joining our clubs. Freerunning classes have proved hugely popular with boys and are a great way to develop their self expression and creativity. Gymnastics and trampolining classes continue to attract a lot of boys too.

4 top reasons your son should do gymnastics classesTRAMPOLINING COMPETITION 

There are so many reasons to enrol your son in gymnastics classes but here are my 4 TOP REASONS!

  • Gymnastics is the foundation of all sports - Gymnastics will teach your son basic athletic skills better than any other sport will. Your son will learn to jump, run and balance, to develop his coordination and body awareness and will become stronger, more agile and more flexible. He will have a better sense of where his body is in the air. These basic skills are transferable to any other sport that he may wish to play and will improve his overall fitness and athleticism.

  • Gymnastics will teach your son to be coachable - Gymnastics will teach your son to listen. Your son will receive loads of feedback from his gymnastics coaches and will learn not to take this as criticism but as helpful information that will improve his performance.
