Gymnastics is a complex sport that is fun yet involves exercises that require a lot of physical strength, power, coordination, grace, flexibility, balance and control. While recreational gymnastic programs are suitable for anyone, competitive programs usually require a certain level of proficiency before being able to join.
Competitive gymnastics programs require that gymnasts possess confidence, determination, motivation and mental toughness in addition to possessing the basic fundamental skills. Sportsmanship is also important when participating in competitive gymnastics, as one needs to get along with team members as well as respectfully and graciously accept success and defeat.
As with all athletes, proper health and nutrition is of utmost importance for training and performance purposes. A nutritious and well-balanced diet is necessary to keep the body in the best physical shape possible. Participating in competitive gymnastics programs requires a lot of training time so that gymnasts can focus on extra conditioning and perfecting their skills or learning more difficult ones.
