Springfit Gymnastics classes are suitable for children aged 4 from complete beginners level to advanced.
We are able to cater for any age and ability. We recommend to start in the Beginners Gymnastics Class when they have started Reception unless if they have done gymnastics before. However the class levels are a guide only.
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! From the relaxed style of our “open” Freestyle (parkour) classes to the discipline of vault and beam, there are so many varieties of gymnastics that everyone can take something from the sport. At Springfit, we use elements from rhythmic gymnastics, aerobics, acrobatics, tumbling and the Olympic disciplines to create a varied class experience. Getting to know your body, pushing its limits and challenging yourself is encouraged through all levels of classes, and regularly evaluated. 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.
Our coaches will work with individuals to attain proficiency awards and build their skills base to as high level as possible, but only if it can be done while having fun! 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.
We are keen to promote gymnastics to boys, and have several dedicated boys classes to help them develop skills specific to their needs.
