Aerobic Gymnastics

The youngest of the gymnastics disciplines, this fast, eye-catching sport can be performed in individual, mixed pair, trio or group categories. Routines are performed wearing trainers to energetic music on a wooden sprung stage 7m x 7m (10m x 10m for Groups).

It offers a great challenge to the gymnasts' fitness. It tests their cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and power as well as demanding a high level of co-ordination and rhythm.

Throughout the routine gymnasts must appear enthusiastic and up beat and demonstrate a high level of skill combined with complex aerobic dance steps. Skills are selected from each 'family' of elements presenting dynamic and static strength, flexibility, balance and jumps.
