Kate Lavell reviewed North West Gymnastics.
Our son is a typical 8 year old boy, loves motorbikes, football and everything rough.
I have had many people question why we have him enrolled in level classes at North West Gymnastics because he is such a rough tough boy? The answer is simple, foundations….. Gymnastics has given our son many skills that he uses for his primary sports.
Motocross racing calls for balance, agility and a lot of upper body strength. Gymnastics has elevated his strength and agility to a point where he is well above many kids in his age group on the race track, he can easily pick up his 65kg motorbike off the ground if he has a spill. Balance is key with Motocross, shifting body weight from one part of the body to another just like gymnastics. We have found that gymnastics has complimented his focus sports very well and he really enjoys the classes.
If your son is look to increase strength, balance, agility and discipline, I definitely recommend a gymnastics class. Men’s gymnastics isn’t for the faint hearted.
