Childhood obesity is a huge issue in the U.S. that has become more severe in the past two decades. About 17 percent of all kids between 2 and 19 years old are obese, and physical activities like gymnastics can help create a healthy lifestyle.


Experts say that children who participate in organized gymnastics classes have better problem-solving skills and longer attention spans than those who do not. For older children and teens, gymnastics increases coordination, flexibility, and strength, all the while reducing stress.


Gymnastics experts say children can learn valuable skills with gymnastics lessons that will carry over in school and life. That includes listening skills, goal-setting, self-esteem, and confidence.


If you were transported back in time to the gymnastics competition at the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis, events like rope climbing and club swinging would look pretty strange. The U.S. actually dominated the competition - largely because all but 8 of the 119 gymnasts were Americans.


As kids improve on their gymnastics skills, they will begin to do more complex tumbling and combine the moves in a sequence. Plus, they will work on harder bar or ring routines, and start working with competitive equipment, including regulation-height beams and parallel bars.


The International Federation of Gymnastics is the governing body of the sport. It was first established in Liege, Belgium at the beginning of the 19th century nearly 100 years before it was officially recognized at the 1896 Olympics.


Historically, gymnastics exercises, including some that involved mounting and dismounting from a horse, became part of military training. The men of ancient Greece and Rome practiced some of these exercises until the Olympic Games were abolished in 393 B.C.


According to research by Nationwide Children’s Hospital, gymnastics are a positive activity for school-age children. Around 600,000 children participate in gymnastics competitions across the US annually.


Daily physical activity is just as important for kids as adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gymnastics can help to lower blood pressure and improve bone strength, according to the CDC.


Mary Lou Retton is certainly the best-known U.S. gymnast, if not the greatest ever. Retton won five medals in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, including the first all-around gold for a woman in 36 years - a performance she capped off with a perfect score of ten on the vault.


Taking gymnastics classes from a young age will benefit a students’ ability within any sport. The balance, awareness of body, and coordination skills that young athletes strive for are all an intrinsic part gymnastic training.


Olga Korbut from the Soviet Union captured worldwide attention for her performances in the 1972 Olympics. Many credit her with making gymnastics a mainstream sport not only within Russia, but also in China and the US. Ever since her appearances, gymnastics has been one of the most popular Olympic sports.


The different events that make up today's gymnastics have been around, though in a different variation, for more than 2,000 years, according to historians. Gymnastics have only been a competitive sport in the Olympics, however, since 1896.


Do you know where gymnastics originated? Just like the Olympics, it was created in Greece. Men went to the gymnasium, an open courtyard, to exercise. They practiced running, jumping, and wrestling.


The uneven bars were once made of wood, but were prone to breaking and have since been replaced by fiberglass bars covered in wood laminate. The width of the bars can be adjusted, and most gymnasts mount them with a springboard.


Floor-mounted trampolines and long, narrow tumble tramps are common gymnastics equipment. These can be used to practice tumbling or can be used in specific trampoline competitions. Plus, they are just a fun part of gymnastics.


Partaking in a sport such as gymnastics can help kids sleep better and equips them with skills to better handle physical and emotional challenges in life. Attending a regular gymnastics class provides young kids with the opportunity to communicate with people their age and work within a team.


One of the greatest benefits of gymnastics lessons is that your kids will be physically active. Kids who are interested in physical pursuits such as gymnastics are likely to remain physically active their entire lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

One of the most successful Olympians of all time is Larisa Latynina from Russia. She has won nine gold medals and is the most decorated gymnast in the history of the games, with a total of 18 medals, a record that has not been broken for more than half a century.


Kids dedicated to gymnastics tend to do well in school, according to experts. That's because gymnastics requires both the imagination and creativity to execute routines and the communication ability necessary for feedback with coaches and other gymnasts.


Rhythmic gymnastics is a separate competitive event that was first recognized in 1962 and included in national and international competitions soon after. However, the sport did not become a part of the Olympics until 1984 in Los Angeles.


Mary Lou Retton inspired many budding gymnasts with her gold-winning performance in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Retton had one obstacle in her way, the vault, but she managed to score a perfect ten to secure gold.


In 1996, the US women’s Olympic team needed a clutch performance from their injured star, Kerri Strug. In her final attempt on the vault, she stuck her landing and then fell in pain. It was enough to secure gold for the team and make her an international star.


The very first perfect score of ten ever given to a gymnast was to Nadia Comeneci of Romania. She won the score at the 1976 Montreal Games, where she won three gold medals at the age of 14.


Good Morning! It's snowing AGAIN!!! We will be closed today (Monday, March 3). We will make up next Monday, March 10. Stay safe and warm :-)


One ancient event that is not in competition gymnastics now is competitive bull jumping. Ancient Greeks would run toward a bull, and, when directly in front of the animal, they would grab the horns and jump over the back of the bull and try to “stick the landing.”


We will be having Parents' Night Out on Friday, March 7 from 6:00 - 9:30!!!
