Instead of kids riding bikes, playing kickball and going to the park, they are sitting in front of the TV or computer screen. Gymnastics provides a fun and safe activity that gets kids physically active. Not only does the sport provide a good, solid fitness foundation, gymnastics also provides many other benefits, from socialization skills to life skills to basics that can enhance performance in other sports.
