GYMNASTICS!!!!

WE HAVE TUMBLED INTO THE NEW YEAR WITH ROLLS, CARTWHEELS, ROUNDOFFS, INDIVIDUAL AND PARTNER BALANCING STUNTS, AND MUCH MORE!  WE WILL ALSO BE SPENDING SOME TIME ON THE SPRINGBOARDS AND VAULTING BOXES!

GYMNASTICS FOR KIDS CAN BE BENEFICIAL IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT AREAS.  SOME PHYSICAL BENEFITS OF DOING GYMNASTICS INCLUDE INCREASED STRENGTH, AGILITY, FLEXIBILITY, AND ENDURANCE.  RESEARCH ALSO SUGGESTS THAT PARTICIPATION IN ACTIVITIES LIKE GYMNASTICS CAN POSITIVELY AFFECT KID’S SELF-ESTEEM WHILE ALSO ALLOWING THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE THEIR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS.
