3 Important Reasons Why Home School Students Should Participate In Gymnastics
Gymnastics is well known as one of the most comprehensive “lifestyle exercise programs” available to children. The benefits of gymnastics include increased strength, improved flexibility, speed, agility, balance, coordination, power and discipline. You may be surprised to hear that participation in gymnastics has been proven to make you smarter. Challenging activities that stimulate the brain and make you think, focus and concentrate are great for developing extraordinary brain power. Will gymnastics make you a rocket scientist… probably not, but having an active brain is a great thing. Additional benefits of gymnastics include learning perseverance, attention to detail, focus, poise and confidence.
Gymnastics can trace its roots back to the Greeks thousands of years ago. It has come a long way since the first gymnasts vaulted over real charging bulls. Ancient Roman warriors actually used gymnastics to train for battle.
Studies have shown that children between 10 and 16 years old have higher self-esteem and develop “success-oriented” attitudes when they are in involved in physical activities.
