Increased flexibility for all sport and general health
A 60 minute class focussing on increasing flexibility and ranges of movement in girls from the ages of 3 and up. Classes include a warm up and gradual development of flexibility through a guided class. Girls will learn exercises such as the correct technique to increase flexibility in glutes, lower back, groin area and many more.
KGA coaches are all former gymnasts who have achieved the highest standards in the sport. This excellence is brought to classes and ensures your daughter receives the highest standards of instruction in a fun filled manner.
Classes are 60 minutes long and involve a warm-up, flexibility work and a warm-down. Once signed up, classes can be booked through the KGA app and used at a time that suits you.
I have had the opportunity of knowing the head coach of KGA Victoria for the past 4 years, and I would love to say that she and her team are dedicated, skilled, and passionate coaches. Their knowledge of gymnastics coupled with the understanding of how to communicate and motivate kids has enabled them to be in a position of respected Coach and trusted mentor for kids.
I highly recommend KGA to any new parents just starting out in gymnastics, and to those who want to improve their skills.
