Apparatus gymnastics

33 €, 6 classes

1. group Wed 18.30-20 TS beginners 10.1.-14.2.
2. group Wed 18.30-20 TS advanced beginners 14.3.-25.4. (not 18.4.)

Instructor: Vilma Pikkupeura

Beginners:

The aim of this course is to practice and develop participants' own gymnastic skills according to their own hopes and wishes. We will start from the basics on floor, bars, beam and trampoline, and we'll move forward in agreement with their level of skills and their own hopes . To participate on the course doesn't require any former gymnastics experiences or such, so anyone with a little enthusiasm is free to join. We can also learn how to help/coach others while they are performing their skills/tricks, if the participant wish to do so. So what do you need for the lesson: happy face and stretchable clothes.

During the course we will practice basic gymnastics skills, like roll-overs, cartwheels, basic beam and bar elements, and some simple jumps and turns on trampoline. We will move forward, as the group progresses.

Advanced beginners

This course will continue from the beginner's course, and we will be moving on to more challenging tricks. However  it's still your opinions and wishes that determine the final content of the course.  You can also participate to the course without attending to the beginners' course, if you think you have sufficient basic gymnastics skills (such skills as cartwheels, roll-overs etc.) I bet the course will offer something for each and everyone of you! Remember to come to the course with a brave heart and a positive attitude - see you at the gym! :)

This course is a perfect course for you, who have already participated in our beginners' course or  for someone that has already mastered some of the basic tricks and skills in gymnastics.

Registration for the 1 group starts on 27.12. and for the 2. group on 28.2.

CrossFit

55 €, 8 classes

Fri 15-16 CrossFit 40100 -sali 22.2.-12.4.

Instructor: Antti Koski

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
