Try Gymnastics This Summer

 

 

Almost every child spends the whole year looking forward to the summer. They are tired of waking up early and spending the whole day in the school building with their books and teachers. They are ready to sleep in again and to spend the whole day playing with their friends. Unfortunately, as much as every kid builds it up in their heads, summer is not always the constant fun that children expect it to be. After about two weeks of sleeping in and playing all day long, the child will likely utter the words, “I am bored.”

Without the busy schedule of school and extracurriculars, many children find way more time on their hands than they wanted. Therefore, the summer is the perfect time to get a child started in gymnastics at Trix Acro Gym. When you register your child for gymnastics, you and the child will both soon see that this program is exactly what the summer needed for multiple reasons.

Provides Something to Do

As mentioned before, after a week or two of all-day play, your child is going to be looking to leave the house and enjoy other activities. Gymnastics is the perfect outlet for this. It puts a day and time on every calendar that the child can look forward to. This provides an outlet so that the child to escape their day-to-day life and try something new and exciting.

Keeps Them Active

Statistics show that children are significantly lazier during the summer months than the children were years ago. Now, with the option of streaming tv shows and endless video games, children spend more and more of their precious summer days indoors in front of a screen. Research shows that in these weeks lacking proper activity, students can lose all fitness achievements that they might have gained during the school year through mediums such as recess and physical education classes. Gymnastics is a wonderful option for keeping your child active and in shape during these summer months. It combines cardio, strength training, and flexibility to provide a well-rounded workout. The days spent at the gym should more than make up for the recess and physical educations classes that your child is missing over the summer months.

Provides Social Interaction

One of the things that some students are deprived of the most during summer months is social interaction. There are days when a child only talks to their parents and siblings. This is a huge adjustment from what the child might be used to, as they interact with many other children throughout the day at school. Gymnastics not only provides an option for students to interact with other kids over the summer, but it is also an opportunity for children to further develop social skills in a new arena and develop important life skills. No matter the age of the child, they can improve social interaction skills during their time at the gym.

If you have been considering signing your child up for gymnastics lessons, this summer could be the perfect chance to do so.
