Kids will bend over backwards to get gymnastic skills

Gymnastics and tumbling is such a super cool skill for your kids to have : it often starts with the back bridge  and that often builds into the back walk over and the back handstand spring.

We have great fun every Thursday in Bethnal Green E2, teaching kids to retain and improve their flexibility, while at the same time, getting them to bounce , jump and tumble: as you can see we get them to bend over backwards too.

If you’d like your child (7-12) to join our weekly  Tumbling classes at our Bethnal Green, E2 gym,  checkout our tumbling page here

CrossFit Kids: Spring Term 2018

Whilst you enjoy a well deserved family Christmas, you probably ought to start thinking about what your kids will be doing in the Spring Term (2018).

It’s a fantastic idea to check out CrossFit London  in Bethnal Green E2.

We currently offer a gymnastic (tumbling) class for kids , and a CrossFit Class for kids. With the spring term 2018 due to start in early January, get your child (8-12) booked into one of our motivating sessions. They can either learn to tumble  (front tuck, back tuck, handsprings, handstands, etc.) in our gymnastic class, or focus on learning lots of weightlifting techniques combined with  rope climbing, hanging or stuff, jumping over, on and in stuff, and generally getting fit in  a fun supportive way in our CrossFit kids class. We can get your child those essential pull ups and box jumps that you know you want them to be have.

You can of course book into both. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and watch. CrossFit kids is Mondays 16:15-17:15. kids gymnastics is Thursdays 16:15 to 17:15.

Keep an eye open for our holiday camp.

The L sit. Part 4

Today its the last part of our racy 4 part guide to nailing the L sit. The ab exercise that spanks the bottom of all other ab exercises. Can you crunch? Can you do a twisty thing while squirming on the floor?  Who cares. My cat can do those moves and he died 3 years ago.

Almost everything is easy compared  to the L sit. Read what Greg Glassman, the Crossfit founder said about the l sit

So,  HOW TO DO IT

Building on parts 1, part 2 , part 3   push yourself up and stick both legs out. You can do it on a chair, or with  dumbbells when you are learning, but aspire to do it on the floor.

Voila
