Millions of people tuned into watch the P&G Gymnastics Championships held in Hartford, CT this week. Were you one of them? If you thought to yourself, my child could do this! Then get your child into a gym. It's never too late or too early to start your child in gymnastics.
Gymnastics promotes fitness, strength, coordination and flexibility. Gymnasts typically become quite self-disciplined and balanced as a result of the sport. Children as young as ten months can do gymnastics! Wildcard Gymnastics offers a thirty minute class for infants and parents which builds coordination and strength. "Many parents are surprised when their 10 month old can start a somersault or lift a leg in the air as if to do a handstand." said preschool instructor, Ashley Elder.
Wildcard Gymnastics offers classes for boys and girls, infants through adult, as well as birthday parties, field trips, Parkour, competitive teams, tumbling for cheerleading, and more! Parkour is a way of combining gymnastics with free-running. It's like Ninja Warrior meets movie stunt double. This is one of Wildcard's most popular classes!
Many people think gymnastics is just for girls but If you watched the P&G Championships this week, you undoubtedly noticed that men's gymnastics is amazing! The senior level men do skills where they are more aerodynamic than a jet plane! Even the junior elite men look strong enough to move mountains. Wildcard's boys' team coach, Candace Wittrock will attest to how gymnastics is a fantastic way to build upper body strength and coordination that boys don't typically develop in other sports. "Gymnastics teaches boys discipline and improves their physical strength. It definitely aids in any other sports they may play." Wittrock says. Even if you don't think the Olympics are in your child's future, gymnastics has its benefits!
