Gymnastic dreams: Training for Gold Leads to Healthier Kids

Gymnastics has helped create many gold medal citizens and helps gymnasts excel later in life.

Many kids are already doing gymnastics as they learn to control their bodies and maneuver the world. Babies learning to walk often find themselves doing somersaults by accident, taking these accidental gymnastics to a higher level takes training and practice. The sport itself is perfect for any kid because they learn and succeed at their own pace feeling accomplished with every new move they learn. In gymnastics, no one sits on the bench while the best get to play. Gymnastics is the process of teaching one’s self to be in complete control of their body and as the training continues, muscles develop along with discipline, poise and self confidence. Many celebrities and star athletes started with gymnastics such as Sasha Cohen (the olympic skater), Hillary Swank (the Oscar and Golden Globe winning actress) and Tony Jaa (the martial arts movie actor). Training at home is a great alternative to paying for a professional coach while the child is honing in the basics. Making a practice room with carpet or couch cushions as padding is an easy way to allow child to learn handstands, cartwheels, and many other basics at home. Gymnastics is a training tool for your child’s mind and body that will stay with them the rest of their life.
