Muscle Strength

Gymnasts build muscles through resistance training when doing tumbling, jumping, static flexing and holding one's own body weight in various positions.  Over time children get stronger and develop lean, toned muscles.

Reduced Risky Behavior

Research shows that children who stay active and participate in sports, such as gymnastics, are less likely to engage in risky behavior such as the use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs.

Solid Skills

Gymnastics clubs encourage teamwork and partner drills in their classes.  The more children interact with diferent types of people, the more they will learn how to handle conflict and positively relate to others.

Enjoyment of Physical

Activity
