Ortona’s beginner program covers an introduction to basic skills on all gymnastics apparatuses for both Men’s Artistic and Women’s Artistic disciplines. These apparatuses include floor exercises, bars, rings, vault, pommel horse and balance beam. Several introductory gymnastics skills will be taught:
The ultimate goal of the beginner program is to get our new gymnasts feeling comfortable in the gym. Additionally, we want every athlete to build a base of gymnastics movements and skills that they can use to further develop their techniques and learn harder skills. Each athlete is challenged individually based upon the progress he or she shows, which guarantees that everyone is moving at their own safe pace.
There is a common belief that gymnastics is a sport for the young. Most people over 25 might feel that they are too old for gymnastics, but here at Ortona, we believe in gymnastics for all. Whether you’re 9 or 99, you can find something beneficial and rewarding in gymnastics.
Gymnastics is the perfect physical activity for any age level. Adults of all ages can reap the numerous benefits that come with regular gymnastics-focused exercises.
Gymnastics focuses on resistance training and functional strength. The long term benefits of resistance training include improved joint health, muscle development and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, gymnastics is an excellent way to improve flexibility which improves joint mobility, circulation and helps prevent injuries. As we age, our flexibility decreases, but gymnastics is the perfect option for combating this decline.
Most importantly, the greatest benefit that comes from an Ortona adult program is fun. Our classes will leave you smiling and feeling positive. You’ll enjoy coming to class each week and learning new ways to be healthy, and you’ll love seeing your health improve as the weeks continue. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why gymnastics is the perfect option for all adults.
Ortona’s adult programs are separated into 2 levels: beginner and intermediate/advanced. These 2 levels allow every individual, regardless of their ability, knowledge or experience, to participate in gymnastics and experience the positive feeling that comes from being active.
In addition to the scheduled classes that occur weekly, our gymnasts in the adult program are encouraged to participate in our Open Gym times, please check the website for schedule and availability. This Open Gym time is used to further develop the skills the athletes have been learning in the program.
