Tumbling is both fun and beneficial. This specific sport enhances children’s fitness faster than perhaps any other activity. It is also one of the most highly recognized sports that train spatial awareness, a critical skill in all types of sports.
The inherent FUN of tumbling disguises the amount of energy being expended! Unlike so many children’s activities, when tumbling, children eagerly sustain an activity level that leads to genuine fitness including: cardiovascular health, leg and core strength, calorie burning and weight loss.
At the bottom of every bounce on the , gravity is 2 to 5 times body weight. This compresses every cell in the body helping the lymph and other circulatory systems eliminate toxins from the body. Tumbling also helps: the vestibular system, optical tracking and peripheral vision, fear management, concentration and attention to detail, and so much more. In our Tumbling program we break down every skill into manageable increments, enhancing safety and making learning easier and more fun.
