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 where members can earn badges for progress and follow a rota of rotating equipment setups to provide diversity in training various disciplines. For example, tumbling, acrobatics, floor skills, vault, beam and bars. Each venue has a different set of apparatus.

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

We recommend starting in beginners gymnastics classes when they have started Reception unless if they have done gymnastics before, for example in our pre-school “Funfit” classes.

Beginners Gymnastics

Introducing children from age 5 to gymnastics.

Coaches teach basic skills to help build balance, coordination and agility. Using steady progressions to establish skills across a variety of disciplines, members begin to work towards proficiency awards.

Improvers Gymnastics

Improvers classes build on members’ existing gymnastics experience.

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

Members are invited up to improvers level classes when coaches deem them able to perform the skills on the improvers level lesson plans. Club Managers will be in touch to invite members up on an individual basis when availability allows.

 

 

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, coaches focus on conditioning bodies to withstand the demands of these higher level skills.

 

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.
