AFTER an almost-three-month hiatus without the usual sounds of happy youngsters jumping, rolling, leaping and tumbling around the gym, Hobart Gymnastics Academy in Bridgewater is looking forward to re-activating all its programs in term three. The relaxation of the COVID-19 restrictions has meant enrolments are open across all programs.
Alongside online training opportunities, the Academy has also begun a staggered re-opening with competitive programs beginning a gradual journey back to its previous levels of training. Despite training in a nearly empty venue, and the carefully planned progression to full hours, all participants are embracing the opportunity to be back in the gym and on the equipment once again.
It’s well known that emotional well-being walks hand-in-hand with physical activity so, not only is it great for these youngsters to be active again in their chosen sport, it’s also beneficial for their mental health – especially after the stress and uncertainty of the past months.
As the cold takes hold, it’s time to resist the urge to curl up on the couch. Keep your kids active, and inspired to push through to the sunshine. If you’re new to gymnastics, call the friendly staff at Hobart Gymnastics Academy to discuss the best options for your child.
