Adult Gymnastics- LTAD 8

Here at Ortona, we believe you are never too old for Gymnastics! At any age, you can find something beneficial and rewarding in gymnastics.

The Benefits of Gymnastics for Adults:

  • Gymnastics is the perfect physical activity for adults to reap the numerous benefits that come with regular exercise.
  • 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.
  • Gymnastics can help maintain or improve your flexibility. 
  • 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. 

Adult Programs at Ortona: 

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. 

Beginner Program

Ortona’s beginner program covers an introduction to basic skills on many gymnastics apparatuses for Men’s Artistic, Women’s Artistic and Trampoline and Tumbling. These apparatuses include (but are not limited to) floor, bars, beam, vault, and trampoline. Fundamental movement patterns for introductory gymnastics skills will be taught:

  • Swings
  • Springs
  • Landings
  • Rotations
  • Locomotions
  • Balances

The ultimate goal of the beginner program is to build a solid foundation for athletes in gymnastics. 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.

Intermediate/Advanced Program

The intermediate/advanced program is a structured program where the focus shifts to the individual goals of each athlete on various events. This program allows athletes to develop skills on many gymnastics apparatuses for Men’s Artistic, Women’s Artistic and Trampoline and Tumbling. These apparatuses include (but are not limited to) floor, bars, beam, vault, and trampoline. 

Athletes in this level have a working grasp of the basic fundamental movements and gymnastics skills. Some athletes will often be veterans of the adult program and will have been a part of the program for several years.

*Ortona’s Adult classes allow more flexibility to the athletes to focus on skills and events that they feel most comfortable with, while still providing a structured class. 


Gymnastics is a fun-filled, non-contact activity through which children can develop self-confidence, experience a wide variety of challenges and opportunity for social interaction.
Gymnastics helps develop physical literacy in children. The development of these physical tools are needed to take part in activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. You’re never too young to gain something positive from the sport of gymnastics.
