Thursday 10:45am – 11:45am
You might not have guessed it, but gymnasts are the strongest, pound for pound, of all the Olympic athletes.
Holding yourself upside down for long periods of time, flipping through the air, using rings and bars and all the other amazing stuff involved in gymnastics will get you seriously strong. Gymnasts have a level of strength that most normal people would consider near superhuman strength—but even training in gymnastics as an amateur will get you upper body strength, core strength and power like no other workout can do.
It doesn’t matter how inflexible you currently are—training in gymnastics will make you a more flexible person.
Working on backbends and pikes require more flexibility than the average workout. And yes, you may even be able to do the splits one day.
No matter your age, gymnastics will bring you back to the days when childlike wonder filled every moment.
