Members of Springfit gymnastics and trampoline club in East Grinstead were treated to a surprise last week as the club unveiled it’s new centre-piece for the hall they run ever-popular classes in.

The 11 metre inflatable has already proved a big hit with the children in ability-based gymnastics classes, and will allow them to further their enjoyment of the sport through more advanced moves and varied coaching techniques.

Usually most helpful in ‘tumbling’, the air track is a versatile piece of equipment that enables gymnasts to get extra bounce or ‘rebound’ when performing a sequence of moves, and provides an additional safety aspect with the very forgiving surface being so flexible. This particular track is very tall, meaning landings can be practiced onto high surfaces too. Games on air tracks are always a popular favourite, and with Easter coming up there will no doubt be some entertaining exercises being devised on the track for members.

This latest purchase for the club means air tracks are now present in all training venues, guaranteeing fun and excitement for all gymnastics classes from Redhill to Horley and Crawley as well as the newest of the Springfit venues in East Grinstead.

As you can see from the photos below, our coaches love the apparatus and will undoubtedly be demonstrating at any opportunity for the equally excited class members!
