About Our
Kids & Teens Classes at Umbilico.

Kids Gymnastics
5-7yrs, 7+yrs & Teen 12-16yrs:
These classes welcomes any level from beginner to intermediate. You will work with both Karl and Yvette in developing, refining and mastering all different types of gymnastics strength and tumbling drills e.g. handstands, cartwheels, handsprings, somersaults. They learn all the fundamentals of gymnastics (strength, flexibility, co-ordination, balance, body awareness) and work on skill acquisition and confidence in moving. Dependent on previous experience in gymnastics, skills take take various times to learn, but with a willingness to put in the hard work and trust the guidance of the teachers, this class will work on the appropriate level of skills their bodies are ready for. UrbanGymnast is known for its attention to the finer details of gymnastics e.g. strength, flexibility and mobility. Without proper development of all these elements in equal balance, then skills become harder and more dangerous. We love guiding and teaching our students all the drills required to be able to safely achieve milestones along their journey. Preparation is key. Fun is essential!

Construct YOUR Potential
 
and
 

Unleash YOUR UrbanGymnast™


ADULT GYMNASTICS

We have designed and created specialised and specific training for adults to reach their physical potential through gymnastics.


INCREASED MOBILITY

Our cornerstone to all physical preparation in class is the importance of mobility. We increase each individuals mobility over time and systematic approaches to accelerate learning and adaptation of connective tissues, ligaments, tendons and joints. Mobility is NOT the same as Flexibility.


INCREASED STRENGTH

Bodyweight strength is important, more so than just moving or lifting weights. Everyone is capable of controlling their bodies to perform efficiently and effectively, moving into, through, and out of positions with the use of their own strength. With increased gymnastics strength you will have less injuries and more freedom of movement.

INCREASED FLEXIBILITY

Flexibility is increased in conjunction with  our mobility and strength programs that are embedded into each and every class. Your flexibility will increase from the combination of mobility, strength, stability and flexibility work. When your body starts to free up, so too does your movement and the potential to gain more gymnastics skills.

TECHNIQUE PROGRESSION


 At UrbanGymnast™ ALL our classes and programming are underpinned on the BEST and AGE APPROPRIATE Technique and individual progressive learning styles. No two people are the same so why should you be expected to learn in the same way and at the same pace. 
 

WHOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT

We believe in taking a wholistic approach to developing our gymnasts at all levels and ages. The key to our success and delivery of achievable outcomes is in the individualised and specific progressions that we use. Physically, Educationally, Emotionally and Psychologically.

MOBILITY AGE APPROPRIATE

In our children’s, kids and teens classes we target and apply specific MOBILITY exercises based on their current stage of physical development. We do not over-stress growth plates, joints or connective tissues.

STRENGTH AGE APPROPRIATE

Again we believe in creating the optimal and most age appropriate strength & power ratio. We balance the strength development with exercises targeted to creating lasting and transferable physical gains making a solid foundation to build on for any sport or activity.

FLEXIBILITY AGE APPROPRIATE 

Just like MOBILITY we encourage our gymnasts to acquire FLEXIBILITY that is useable and appropriate for their growth stage. We teach them to take an active approach in this and learn along the way.

PROGRESSIVE TRAINING

Our training programs are progressive and tailored to each individual’s abilities and desires, helping them to successfully achieve their maximum potential while having fun and increasing wellbeing and fitness.

SPATIAL AWARENESS

Gymnastics is a fundamental training discipline used for spatial awareness training. We have taken drills and progressions from elite international level athlete development,  structuring them in a way to impact the spatial awareness training for everyone, not just elite athletes who train 40hrs + per week.


BALANCE & COORDINATION

Our vestibular system provides the major contribution to sense of balance and spatial orientation. Movements consist of rotations and translations. Our brain uses information interpreted from the vestibular system in our head and, from proprioception throughout the body,  this is used to understand our body’s dynamics and kinematics (including its position and acceleration) from moment to moment. We have developed gymnastics exercises & drills  to enhance and refine development of these senses to accelerate your gymnastics skills learning and a holistic movement education.

PERSONALISED COACHING

At UrbanGymnast™ we appreciate and respect that everyone is an individual. Inside each class, we endeavour to make everyone’s training and journey their own. We work with your strengths and help to even out or eliminate your weaknesses. We are right by your side every step of the way and share in the excitement of your gains.

You can! TRAIN & MOVE like an UrbanGymnast™
