Little Gym – 3-6 Year Olds
Watch your child progress from roly polys to cartwheels, whilst gaining confidence and having lots of fun & giggles along the way.
Our Little Gym sessions are for toddlers and pre-schoolers wanting to start gymnastics in the Leicestershire area. These sessions have been specially planned to help your child flourish with confidence whilst attaining developmental milestones in a friendly & safe environment.
Every session starts with a warm up game or warm up to music with a qualified instructor. This is great to get your child engaging in the session and slowly challenge their core fitness components.
When you join the Little Gym classes your child will be allocated a qualified gymnastics coach who will work with them to progress through their pre-school certificates.
When they reach each gymnastics level your child will receive a certificate to recognise their achievements.
LEVEL 1 (BEGINNER)
In this class your child will learn the correct fundamental positions in gymnastics, such as the tuck, pike and straddle as well as learning the essential locomotor skills needed such as running, hopping and jumping onto targets. The coaches will move on to work with your child to explore twisting and rotating as well as hanging, running and swinging from bars.
At level two your child will learn the basic body positioning & body shaping that’s required for most gymnastic skills. They will start putting fundamental positions together such as a forward roll, backward roll and half handstand as well as balancing skills ready for the beam. They will also be starting to build muscle strength ready for endurance on bars.
The little Jedi start to get ready for progressing to the Gymnastics for All or Advanced classes. They will start to perfect the basic shapes and combining of skills, moving onto more advanced levels on all pieces of gymnastics apparatus.
All three stages are completed with fun visual aids and demonstrations.Timetable & Prices

13- 16 year olds - Aimed at teenagers with prior gymnastics experience who wish to continue to develop their skills, but at a comparatively relaxed pace and with competition participation an optional extra, but not a requirement.
The sessions are more relaxed than the Advanced Programme but will still challenge the gymnasts as they improve their abilities. We also work on fitness, strength and flexibility which as well as aiding gymnastic development will also provide benefits for other sporting endeavors.
The Youth Gymnastics squad participate in the Adams Gymnastics Annual Leicester Display, a great opportunity for all the young gymnasts to showcase their skills.
Youth Gymnastics is available to teenagers who have previous gymnastics experience.
The Advanced Programme is for gymnasts who have a great love for the sport and who have completed all eight levels of the British Gymnastics Core Proficiency awards.
The Advanced session runs for two hours, giving the gymnasts more time to develop their skills with more time dedicated to each piece of apparatus. It is a more challenging programme and requires a higher level of fitness and a strong willingness to improve.
All gymnasts in the Advanced program and will be expected to compete in the Leicestershire competitions and participate in our annual display display

Not only is it great fun for the kids, but it’s crucial for teaching them how to stay fit and active, and to learn how this affects overall health. Good habits are developed over time and if they’re set at an early age it’s that much easier to keep them – which at Adam Guymnastics is something we take very seriously.
