How to choose a sport?

Artistic gymnastics is the most extensive form of gymnastics. It exercises the whole body and places the greatest demands on the upper body of all the gymnastic forms. Participants will take part in familiar basic exercises (running, jumping, agility, swinging). Artistic gymnastics is an Olympic sport and the most traditional form of gymnastics.

TeamGym is for those who like to perform tricks and dance. On the vaulting track, participants will learn walkovers and springs. On the floor, on the other hand, acrobatic skills and group movements will be performed, accompanied by music. TeamGym is the most popular form of gymnastics in the other Nordic countries and also very popular among men.

Acrobatic gymnastics is a nice social activity. One’s own sets of movements and postures, as well as movements in pairs or trios, allow participants to test their courage and develop their skills.

Trampoline gymnastics teaches new tricks, body control and fitness. The emphasis is on the safe development of skills. Trampoline gymnastics is an Olympic sport.

Can I start gymnastics, even if I don't even know how to cartwheel?

Of course! Training begins with the basics. The lessons will allow you to move around the edge of your comfort zone, challenging yourself and avoiding unnecessary risks or fears.  The use of apparatus will teach you new things, but they will not be encountered until the participant feels that they are ready.

How to choose a level?

It is important to select the right level to ensure meaningful and safe training. A level that is too easy does not excite, however the same applies for one that is too difficult. In addition, group members have fragmented entry levels that complicate training planning and classroom activities 

How long will I remain at the current level?

For as long as it feels good.

When will I advance to the next level?

The general rule of thumb is that this will take place in August, when the new autumn season begins. Of course, the level can be changed if the current group is clearly unsuitable for some reason. It is best for grouping and learning if the group remains together between August and May. The difficulty level of training for groups is increased during the seasons and is not stuck in a certain form if the members of the group have developed well.

Can I change sports?

Of course. If the first choice seems to be wrong, then a change is easy.

What are the other benefits of gymnastics?

Gymnastics is useful even when someone’s main sport is football or golf. We recommend artistic gymnastics, although any form of gymnastics provides good support alongside a main sport.
