The programs provided are primarily structured to support your sport’s LTAD model, focusing on a combination of gymnastics fundamentals and sport-specific skills.
Gymnastics is about how the body moves and therefore the foundation sport for all physical activity and sports and is recognized as such by the IOC. It demands a full range of physical and mental attributes. All participants benefit from our attention to excellence in programming and coaching at all stages of development, for all levels of interest and ability. Gymnastics is said to be the ultimate human movement experience.
In this program we aim to develop strength, coordination, balance, agility, and active and passive flexibility.
Through our training and exposure to other sports, we have designed a series of drills and stations with each individual sport in mind.
Yoga is a great complement to any athlete’s long-term training plan and can be used to develop whole body strength, correct imbalances and increase range of motion.
In the Calgary Gymnastics Centre Yoga for Athletes program, we will use a combination of strength, stretching and restorative poses that will increase flexibility, balance, mental focus and awareness of breath.
