We run a busy and popular adult gymnastic programme based in Bethnal Green: please read the information below for all the information you need to get started.
If you dont understand , read it all again, then , you can email [email protected]
These are the things we commit to teaching you as part of our Saturday and Sunday gymnastics programme, which is for adult beginners/intermediates who wish to be taught in a class format.
Book yourself into a gymnastics class to get the very best in adult gymnastic coaching in London.
We offer highly taught and structured sessions for adult clients, and are careful to tailor progressions to your needs and abilities.
Finding coaches with an interest in really helping adults learn skills are rare, so we are delighted that cheerleading coach, Amelia Chavez Murguia and Aggi have joined us to help make the Blackboard Gym a real centre of excellence. We also have Alex Jerrome on the team
This is the proper stuff: real handstands with grace and beauty, real forward rolls and cartwheels that will lead to round-offs because they are being taught well. For more advanced students, there will be work on bridges, back flips and more!
These are stand-alone classes, so you do not need to be a Crossfitter or go through our Crossfit Beginners classes in order to participate.
We run two different sessions on Saturday and Sunday, aligned to meet most levels of experience:
- Adult Gymnastics Beginners: Adult gymnastics sessions targeted at those with no prior gymnastics experience. Focused on developing the basic flexibility and orientation necessary to practice handstands, cartwheels, forward and backward rolls.
- Adult Gymnastic Intermediate: Adult gymnastics sessions for intermediate athletes and those already familiar our gymnastic syllabus. This class will focus on round offs, back walk-overs with some back flip and back tuck preparation work. We will look to develop the handstand you acquired in Beginners. Note: The coaches will let you know when you are ready to attend these more advanced sessions. If you are unsure, please book in to the Gymnastic Beginners and get the instructor permission
Crossfit London has a gymnastics Facebook group that gives you a flavour of some of the drills and stuff that we do at our gymnastic sessions
