Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring flexibility, balance and control. Gymnastics help increase strength development, core control and spatial awareness – all of which improve CrossFit performance. Our Gymnastic Classes are currently only held at CrossFit Central London.
“In CrossFit, body-weight movements are considered gymnastics (e.g., air squat, push-up, pull-up, etc.). In CrossFit, the gymnastics label is applied any exercise in which you move your body through a range of motion (ROM) or extended range of motion (EROM) without an external load.
Gymnastics is one of the three foundational modalities of CrossFit. If gymnastics
movements are performed properly, they influence every aspect of your life and have a dramatic effect on your fitness. Gymnastics training produces impressive strength gains without requiring an external load. Gymnastics is a cornerstone of CrossFit, along with weightlifting and monostructural metabolic-conditioning (or just “monostructural”) movements”
