I’m an Athlete

Athletes need to be efficient when performing seven gymnastics movements to be competitive in the gym or on the competition floor.  We specialize in teaching the following movements:

  • Handstand walking
  • Toes-to-bar
  • Pull-ups
  • Handstand Push-ups
  • Bar Muscle-ups
  • Dynamic Ring Muscle-ups
  • Butterfly Pull-ups

Our curriculum is very practical, scaleable and progressive. 

We have a very unique approach to  teaching the traditional shapes & positions required for training in this sport or any other sport.  We physically shape our Athletes’ bodies in the hollow, arch, body wave and many other positions that create dynamic, efficient movement.

Then, once our Athletes have a strong base of general movement and proper shapes, we utilize drills that reinforce the correct movement patterns advancing to dynamic skills utilizing the new level of tension we have created. Our athletes benefit from tapping into free energy that will produce increased repetitions at lower level of fatigue.
