Online Classes

 

Most parents think, "You can't do gymnastics at home!"  There are actually a lot of  at home stretches, workouts & skills that are very important to do.  We highly recommend to stretch at home and try our online classes to enhance your child's flexibility & strength.  Benefits of "Getting your splits" not only increases strength, it also helps their skills' form & technique.  Don't forget it helps with preventing injuries too.  Think of it this way,  if you are not able to go to the gym, do online classes to keep strong & healthy joints for when you go back to the gym and tumble you may decrease the risk of rolling your ankles or hyperextending your limbs. Calisthenics are part of our workouts which helps our members with skills such as press to handstand, planche, handstand pirouette, levers & if you have home equipment such as an inflatable AirTrack, rings, parallettes, dip bars, rings, leg strap, weights & trampoline.  You may also work on basic fundamental tumbling skills, calisthenics, poses & jumps.  It is not like school where they play a video that you just follow, our instructors will demonstrate step by step to master some awesome skills that are safe & fun. Check out the equipment we recommend for at home online classes which are inflatable mattressleg strap, weights, mats, cheer stand, trampoline, bar, parallettes

Defeating Fear

 A lot of times in any sport, we all have a common enemy. Fear!  This really takes a toll on athletes emotionally, Olympian is here to help.  We often tell ourselves we "can't", instead try telling yourself "I don't want to because I am scared."  The first step to overcome fear is honesty with yourself, others can be a support system but watch out for differences in negative and positive support. Fear can spread like a virus and anyone can catch it becoming part of your cultural environment.  It can hold you back from succeeding or overwhelm you emotionally.  Use your mind to choose how you want to feel by influencing courage into your emotions.  Reading is a great tool exercise for the mind, there are great books on courage such as Courage To SoarA Mind Of Cheer & Overcoming Gravity. Don't like reading books? Check out these movies for motivation & inspiration like Stick It, Bring It On & Dwayne The Rock Johnson.
