Gymnastics has many significant advantages. One of the most valuable is the increased understanding of fundamental movement skills. Not only are these skills essential for healthy growth and development, they are an essential element in building solid foundations in a child’s life. Gymnastics teaches balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. It enhances fine and gross motor skills, advances social and intellectual abilities and improves body and spatial awareness creating greater success across an increased range of physical activities. Gymnastics not only increases strength, grace, coordination and flexibility, but also encourages hard work, discipline and determination while having fun.
