Gymnastics Elite is a gym designed for the AVERAGE kid. We are not at all exclusive but rather the exact opposite because we believe gymnastics can benefit any child and that is what our ultimate goal is and what we are here for. These benefits are not limited to the gym but can be applied in a variety of areas of your child's life such as in school or at home. They are also not limited to physical benefits but also behavioral and social. We aim to improve health in both body and mind for our students. Having said that here are some specific reasons that you should try out gymnastics over your child summer break.
For your child to try something new - Trying out gymnastics classes will get them out of their comfort zone and push them to push themselves which is so valuable. When we get out of our comfort zones we grow, move forward, and it gives us the opportunity to conquer our fears before they conquer us! This is setting your child up for success and forming good habits!
Keeps them active during their break - They will have to get off the couch and out from in front of their iPods, phones, video games, etc. and actually engage in the here and now around them. It will get them moving and their blood pumping and actually enjoying it! This sport is a mix of fun and play as well as exercise and discipline.
Improve and sharpen their social skills - These classes will give them the chance to socialize and make friends aside from school. They will get to interact with kids that are not from their neighborhood and be apart of a community where they all have this sport in common with one another.
Builds up self-confidence - Learning a new sport and gaining new skills ups a child's confidence level like almost nothing else. They get to do things that they never thought they could ever do before. This boost in confidence and seeing and thinking of themselves in a positive light will help them avoid pit falls in the future such as depression and anxiety.
Learn self-control - To be in a gymnastics class, the student has to learn patience, cooperation, consideration, discipline, dedication, and the list goes on and on. They learn and notice that when they learn these things it is easier for them to succeed in a task, accomplish a goal and to learn.
Whether your child falls in love with the sport (which is easy to do) or moves on eventually, it is well worth the try and will still benefit your child in one way or another!
