History of Gymnastics

Gymnastics originated in Ancient Greece, which used to be a highly military focused society.

Practicing Gymnastics was considered to be ideal training for Soldiers, who were trained in both agility and strength to prepare them for battle. One of the skills obtained by practicing Gymnastics was mounting and dismounting a horse swiftly and properly. Another one was Sword Fighting, which require a high level of agility and flexibility.

In the Renaissance and through the 18th and 19th centuries, Gymnastics was a common type of exercise for boys and young men, it was considered to be an important part of a healthy life.

In 1881, the FIG was founded in Liege, Belgium and remains the oldest still existing International Sports Organisation in the world.

When the first modern Olympics were organised in 1896, Men's Gymnastics was such a popular sport that it was one of the first disciplines to be included.

Gymnastic Equipment

Depending on the discipline, Gymnastics requires some very specific equipment.

Proper Hand Protectors and Shoes are essential gear to decrease the chance of sustaining friction injuries on the hands and feet.

Chalk and talcum powder are popular products that are used to protect the hands while performing a discipline.

Gymnastics requires padded mats as well, both for training and for competitions, to protect athletes in case they fall.

Equipment needed for individual disciplines ranges from bars, vaults and pommel horses to ropes, rings, beams and trampolines.

During Gymnastics training, you will also need tumbling aids, work stations, mats, barbells and dumbbells, barbells, and the specific equipment that was mentioned above.

Coordination, agility, muscle strength and body control are essential to successfully perform any discipline and to avoid getting injured.
