Gymnastic Classes Open Now – Boys can Come Too!

Oct 28th 2015 at 7:10 AM



More popular – much, much more popular among the young ladies. Nevertheless, it’s the guys who are regarded as being among the very strongest of athletes.

In the popular man’s Magazine, Men’s Health, they listed to top 50 fittest pro athletes. It’s a Japanese gymnast who ranks third on that list, ahead of the likes of Usain Bolt, LeBron James, and Michael Phelps.

However, the mag did say that pound-for-pound, Kochei Uchimora “might” be the fittest guy on the planet. In other words, he might/ should be ranked at the very top of the list, no?

Even for those little guys who do not wish to get involved with gymnastics as a sport, there are plenty of benefits to be had.

1. It’s a great foundational sport.

Basic fundamental athletic skills are taught well and truly in gymnastics, particularly beneficial for those who lack the cognitive and motor skills which are required for team sports.

Gymnastics teaches how to run, to jump, to balance, so he becomes more flexible and much stronger. Transfer those skills to any other sport of your choosing.

2. Cross training.

Enhance conditioning through improved athleticism. Your lad will improve his athleticism, he’ll be more flexible, stronger, and more agile. He’ll have a better sense of moving his body in the air. It’s win-win.

3. Gymnastics for injury prevention.

A couple of the most common sports injuries are from falling and from strained and sprained muscles.

Gymnastics teaches anyone and everyone to warm up appropriately and they gain far more flexibility, which are the main reasons why strains and sprains occur – don’t warm up properly and lack of flexibility.

Plus, where better to learn how to fall correctly? On the gymnastics mat. This is always part the core curricula in gymnastics – learn how to fall safely.

4. Builds character.

Gain a strong work ethic and resiliency. Gymnastics teaches kids all about hard work and how it’s required to achieve success. If you don’t try over and over again in gymnastics, then you fail. And that is called discipline!

5. Learn better.

If you’re involved in gymnastics and you get good at it, it proves you’re a good listener. For every single movement you make in gymnastics, you’ll be corrected by your coach, over and over. It’s all about feedback in this sport.

However, gymnasts learn to receive this feedback in a positive manner. It’s not criticism, after all. Instead, it’s all about helping them to improve their performance and achievements.


So roll up, roll up! It’s time to get involved in gymnastics. And boys, you are certainly more than welcome! Sign up for Austin gymnastics training today!
