Ability Based Gymnastics

The majority of Springift’s Gymnastics classes are split into three levels according to ability. Beginners, Improvers and Advanced

Each of these classes follows the Springfit proficiency award scheme (Badgework) and an annual equipment rota.

Classes will always begin with a warm up and stretch before moving on to both floor skills and equipement.

We recommend to start in the Beginners Gymnastics Class when they have started Reception unless if they have done gymnastics before.

Beginners Gymnastics

Introducing children from age 4 to gymnastics. Using basic skills to build balance, co-ordination and agility.

Improvers Gymnastics

Building on members’ existing gymnastics experience. Developing moves such as handstands, cartwheels, round-off, squat-through on vault and introducing higher level acrobatics skills. Building strength and flexibility through appropriate drills to enable bodies to be able to withstand the demands of more advanced moves.

Advanced Gymnastics

Developing gymnasts towards advanced skills and expanding overall capabilities and attitudes to training. Progressing onto moves such as flics, walkovers, handsprings and somersaults.

Gymnastics is a great way to keep fit, and learn about how the body can move. It can teach skills so beneficial to every day activities that can even SAVE YOUR LIFE! At Springfit, we use elements from rhythmic gymnastics, aerobics, acrobatics, tumbling and the Olympic disciplines to create a varied class experience.  To see the benefits of gymnastics click here.

Most importantly, we think gymnastics should be FUN. There is so much enjoyment to be gained from jumping over things, springing up, rolling around, twisting away and generally tumbling about in a safe environment, that we pack as much fun into classes as we can.

We run regular gymnastics competitions against other clubs and organisations in the local area for those who are keen to compete without having to travel all over the country. See our Club Calendar page for details on our next event.
