This summer, we can watch the amazing athletic prowess displayed by gymnasts from around the world as they compete in the Paris Olympics. Closer to home, our families can enjoy a slice of that athletic magic at Monarchs Gym, a leader in children’s physical fitness.

Unlocking the benefits of gymnastics
At Monarchs Gym, gymnastics is more than just a sport; it’s a holistic approach to physical and mental well-being with myriad health benefits. Through structured routines and playful exercises, coaches assist in the development of essential motor skills, improving flexibility and enhancing coordination, balance, and strength while making fitness enjoyable for every child.

One of the standout benefits of immersing children in Monarchs programs is the impact on motor-skill development. Using simple activities like jumping, skipping, rolling, lifting, and walking, the Monarchs coaches teach children how to control their bodies from an early age. In turn, this control creates a harmonious relationship between the nervous system, muscles, and brain, supporting physical growth and aiding in cognitive, social, and emotional development.

Parent Tot class: Starting fitness early can set the stage for a healthy lifestyle. Monarchs Gym’s Parent Tot class is designed for children from walking age to 3 years old. This class is a delightful introduction to gymnastics where kids navigate obstacle courses that teach them about colors, numbers, and perceptual awareness while building strength, coordination, and flexibility. Parents actively participate, guiding their children and sharing in the joy of discovery.

All sessions start with a warm-up, followed by beginner gymnastics and tumbling exercises. The Kinder I class is a 50-minute co-ed session that lays the groundwork for physical fitness. As gymnasts progress, Kinder II (ages 3.5 to 4.5) and Kinder III (ages 4.5 to 6) classes introduce them to apparatus, like bars, beams, floor, and vault. The classes focus on building flexibility, strength, and coordination, creating a solid foundation for all future athletic endeavors.
