Why do Gym at EKGA?
Fun - Fun IS Far More Than Meets The Eye. One of the objectives of all EKGA programs is FUN! Of course, this is cool with the kids, but parent sometimes fail to realize the importance of fun in a learning setting, especially for preschoolers and young children. Adults often feel that when fun is present, learning is not. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We aim to help kids establish life time learning and fitness habits. A child who at a young age associates learning and challenges with fun carries that association throughout life. Now is the age to involve your child in activities which help them form positive associations with learning and challenges. EKGA’s curriculum is carefully designed for exactly what children need most during each stage of their development.
Fitness - Gymnastics is the perfect sport for both physical and mental fitness. At EKGA our programs ensure that children are kept moving. We use a circuit approach to ensure that children experience a range of activities each session and that time waiting for their turn is kept to a minimum. We put a special emphasis on fitness. We have found the fun of trampolines, bars and rings encourages children to exercise willingly and sustain high activity levels that lead to increased cardiovascular health, leg, upper body and core strength, as well as burning energy. Some of the greatest physical benefits of gymnastics include coordination, power, strength, flexibility, balance, grace and most importantly injury preventing core stability and agility.
Fantastic Gymnastics - Gymnastics teaches children perseverance, poise, confidence, attention to detail and CONCENTRATION. So whether your child is a future Olympic Gymnast or goes on to be a net baller, football player or soccer star—a sound gymnastics education is essential for their development.
