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

Start your adult gymnastics journey

Gymnastics is open to everyone. Even if you are 56 with poor shoulders,  our amazing adult gymnastic coaches can find a way for you to roll, flick, tuck and handspring.
Crossfit London runs a delightful  adult gymnastics tumbling  club in  East  London,  one tube stop from Liverpool street.
Based in Bethnal Green, 2 minutes from the tube, we specialise in delivering you the skills you want: If you are an adult with no, or little prior experience  we can,   given your application to our classes, get you to tumble.
You won’t win any competitions but you’ll find an awesome hobby.
But, here is our promises: at least once a year, you’ll land badly and tweak  an ankle or knee. It happens. Someone broke their ankle a few years ago .
The basics of this sport involve jumping high in the air and flipping over. The sport carries all the risks of , well,  jumping in the air and flipping over.
Of course, we have lots of drills involving  safe mats,  bouncy floors and instructor spotting.
But, like in the video above, eventually  the instructor stands back and goes” its all you” (not on your 1st day obviously).
What we are really saying is that if you are risk adverse, maybe look at yoga, or meditation!!
Check out our classes, and assume you need to start at level 1. There are no free trials, as our classes are full of people passionate about  gymnastics. You can buy a single session for £15. After that, there are carnets you can buy that bring the price to about £10 a session. This means at your lesson, you’ll be surrounded by people who are there to train , and have fun, but train and learn. There are no cunning contracts. You can buy tickets in 1’s  5’s, 10’s, 20’s and 50’s. You buy these when you come to book. We don’t have any sales people hanging around ( we are too busy having awesome fun teaching gymnastics)
Here is the full story behind our classes and here is how to book
Currently our classes are on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, so navigate to those days
You can also keep the kids happy by booking them into our Kids Gymnastic classes

Adult gymnastics: we deliver dreams

Almost everyone wants to be a gymnast, or at least do a back flip off a bar top in Ibiza. Imagine being in a park with someone checking you out and  simply kicking upto a handstand, holding it, and coming down.
How cool would that be?
At the adult gymnastic sessions in Crossfit London in Bethnal Green E2 , we deliver you the cool things you want. If you have never done gymnastics before ( if you are 18, or 35, or 45, or 60) you’ll be taught in our level 1 classes, how to handstand,  cartwheel,  forward roll, and jump. AT our level 2, you’ll join our level 1 graduates, former child gymnasts, dancers and trickers in learning the drills that will get you a front and back handspring, a front and back tuck, and a round-off. Once you nail those,  it’s off to level 3  to try and glue them together (round off into back flick etc) . Obviously, there are kip ups, and tricking skills to be picked up on the way.
Gymnastics is often only taught to the super talented.  We take everybody as long as you accept you probably won’t be in the Olympics,  but gosh, your kids will be impressed. Imagine that stupid person at work,  raving about going to a spinning class, when you show them your back flick video.
