Tips for Better Flips

By Rose Kreller of Medi-Waste Disposal

Wow!  Look At All The Benefits of Gymnastics

We have all watched Olympic gymnasts and been amazed at their strength, flexibility, balance and control. 

  •  Flexibility.  Flexibility is a key factor in gymnastics.  Increasing your flexibility can be effective to reduce injury and gain greater control of the body.
  • Disease prevention.  Gymnastics can help prevent health conditions such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes.  It helps encourage a healthy lifestyle.
  • Gymnastics is a weight bearing activity, and that can help to develop strong bones.
  • Several studies show that children who participate in physical activity, like gymnastics are likely to have better self-esteem
  • The American Heart Association suggests children participate in 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Participating in gymnastics helps meet this recommendation.
  • Gymnastics not only offers physical gain, but also improves concentration and mental focus.  Gymnasts also gain improved coordination to be better equipped to avoid falls.
  •  In children, gymnastics also provides an opportunity to develop social skills and instill self-discipline.
