When you think of men's gymnastics what comes to mind? Strength? Flexibility? Flips? All of those are aspects of gymnastics, but what else can you get out of gymnastics?
So what other benefits come with it?
Well the simple answer is the benefits are limitless! Men's gymnastics as a whole trains the body in multiple different avenues that can transfer to other sports, activities and overall physical fitness. Gymnastics trains the whole body throughout the activities on all the events. Balance and coordination are trained every day in class and can transfer to all sports. For example, boys working on vault learn the proper technique for how to run, as well as accelerating and testing their proprioceptive skill as they transfer to jumping on to the board.
Gymnastics for physical fitness also teaches learning and listening skills within the class. Each student will be challenged with their peers to problem solve through different activities, work with their coaches on how to preform certain movements, and explore movement through fun and fitness!
