The benefits of training gymnastics

The basics of gymnastics requires you to build stability, balance, proprioception and strength across the whole body. 

You will develop a very strong core. But not just in the trunk, also in the shoulders and legs.   

We teach everyone from beginners to experienced athletes, you don’t need to be good at gymnastics to want to learn. In some ways that’s kind of the point, you’re coming to us because you need or want to have this, so starting as a complete beginner can be incredibly satisfying.

How does gymnastics personal training work?

Firstly we do a free consultation and fitness assessment. During this we will figure out where you are and what your goals are. From here we plan your first session. 

In your first session we will warm up, and slowly build in strength movements which you will be using. We will then go through each movement together slowly increasing the complexity of each movement once you can complete it. 

From here we can design you a program to do at the gym or at home on your own in between your sessions with us.
