What to expect in our classes Inside Earls Gymnastics

 

All of our classes are packed full of activities to challenge and inspire all of our gymnasts - whether they are just starting or have been training for years.

As well as working on gymnastics related skills, our programme ensures that all gymnasts regularly work on developing their balance, strength, agility, power, flexibility and co-ordination, in a fun, challenging and rewarding environment.  

 

At Earls Gymnastics we also encourage all of our gymnasts to work towards achieving British Gymnastics proficiency badges, two assessment for these awards take every 6 weeks.

Our gymnasts also have the opportunity to participate in internal floor and vault competitions, while our advanced competition classes can compete both internally and external competitions.
