The Benefits of Recreational Gymnastics
Integral for many activities in life, a good sense of balance enables safe and confident movement and physicality and helps prevent falls, whether on a balance beam or outside the gym.
Reduces risk of injury and serves as a competitive advantage and performance enhancer inside and out of the gym no matter the sport.
Develop both minor and major muscle groups to stabilize and control movement, unlike many sports that strengthen only certain body parts.
Improve focus and mind-muscle connection which helps athletes learn to control their body in a more coordinated way.
Positive supports and influences, practicing positive self-talk, and focusing internally to learn new skills in the gym builds self-esteem and promotes health and happiness in life.
Resilience and Goal Setting
When a gymnast struggles to learn a new skill, they begin to know what it takes to succeed and learn to use S.M.A.R.T. goals to build self-confidence.
Lifelong Positive Fitness Habits
Gymnasts learn to feel confident in their physical abilities by developing foundational strength, coordination, and balance, which makes them more likely to stay active through any number of physical activities throughout their lifetime.
Social and Problem-Solving Skills
Gymnasts learn what it means to be part of team and develop lifelong friendships in the gym.
