When getting your child involved in gymnastics you must understand that this is a very dangerous sport. The kid will be exposed to dangerous materials in the gym, metals and pieces of equipment that are unstable. We do try to make sure they are all covered and safe. It is very important to also understand that the kid will be getting a lot of their energy so that'll be helpful at home. It's also very important that you understand the student should not be performing any skills at home on the couch, on the bed, in their back yard unless they have really successfully performed that in the gym over and over again. Even talking to their coach about them doing anything at home would be necessary in order for their safety.

Gymnastics is a great sport. The kid comes in and they're in a class full of peers. They learn how to work with other kids, they learn how to be in a class, it's very structured. They get good discipline. They get good conditioning for their muscles and they ultimately always just have a blast. I mean there's so many things out there the kids love to flip on and we're giving them the opportunity to do so and get them out of your hair.

So ultimately the gymnastics is a great sport for kids to get into and I highly suggest it for anybody that is looking to get their kid pushing some energy out getting them into a productive sport.
