With the success of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, it might be easy for young ones to get the impression that gymnastics is for girls. But as an activity that’s fundamentally about strength, gymnastics is excellent training for girls and boys when it comes to both sports and general fitness. The Victors Gymnastics, located in Greece, New York, offers boys gymnastics programs and tumbling classes to build core strength, enhance coordination, and improve balance.
Consider enrolling your son for the intrinsic benefits gymnastics training provides. The Victors Gymnastics offers classes for young children, aged 1-4, through the Tumble Bunnies program. As kids literally find their feet, they can also become comfortable and confident while trying new things and having fun.
For children aged 5 and up, The Victors Gymnastics offers a gymnastics curriculum organized around skill levels: children can progress through the levels as they acquire new skills. The boys gymnastics program teaches the pommel horse, still rings, vaulting, parallel bars, and horizontal bar. Students will warm up for class through basic strength training.
If students are motivated to do so, they have the option to compete: The Victors Gymnastics puts out a Men’s Junior Olympics team. Competition provides the immeasurable advantages of teamwork and the support of teammates, not to mention the discipline and determination necessary to pursue gymnastics training.
Whether practicing competitive or recreational gymnastics, students will see improvement in agility, flexibility, and overall fitness. A strong gymnastics foundation lends itself to any sport as well as lifelong health, since gymnasts must understand how their bodies work in order to accomplish such incredible feats of strength and dexterity.
The Victors Gymnastics also offers trampoline and tumbling classes: Victors’ Ninja Tumbling is sure to be a hit. These classes will appeal to rambunctious young boys and their parents by helping boys blow off steam in a safe, controlled setting.
