Gymnastics – One of the Best Sports

Posted on: August 21st, 2012 by

Smarter Spotter In PinkWith the Olympics over and the girls gymnastics team dominating the sport we have had a lot of parents calling to ask for tumbling mats and gymnastics equipment for home that can be used for practicing different moves. It’s kind of a start-up kit. You first start with the floor which most everyone orders a gymnastics folding mat, which can be used for different tumbling routines. They are also really easy to store when folded.

From there you add a couple of training aids to help in back & front handsprings as well as more advanced tumbling exercises. One of the hottest items is our Smarter Spotter, something I wish I had when I took classes. It has a great shape to it that really helps learning different exercises while keeping your child more protested. This product is usually used in combination with the folding mat.  Being put on top for even more protection. Our Incline Mats (also known as cheese mats or wedges) work in a similar way. They have been around for a long time and are the favorite of lots of coaches. They also come in a folding style to help in storage.

I think the most important thing about gymnastics is that it helps train your child to have great balance, awareness, strength and versatility. It also lasts throughout there lifetime as I still find that I still have strengths and agility that I learned in gymnastics, especially balance and how to take a fall. Also, it’s a great way to get your child in shape and make some new friends. If you haven’t already, give it a try, in my opinion it’s one of the best sports for children to be involved in.
