GAIN COORDINATION Gymnastics requires a certain amount of coordination to help you perform the moves properly and without risk of injury. As you continue with gymnastics, you will likely notice that your natural coordination improves as you learn new skills and techniques.
DEVELOP DISCIPLINE Gymnastics requires a great deal of self-discipline because it isn't always an easy endeavor. You will have to be diligent about sometimes working through pain and discomfort. This will increase the longer you practice gymnastics.
INCREASE FLEXIBILITY As you engage in gymnastics, you condition your muscles to be more flexible. Not only can this benefit you while you do gymnastics itself, but it also limbers you up so that you can help reduce the risk of injury. It also gives you more control over your body.
STRENGTHEN MUSCLES Gymnastics helps you burn calories, and also tones and builds muscles. This is because you are getting your heart rate going and engaging the muscles in your arms, legs, back, shoulders, abs and back.
