Gymnastics Training Camps
History of Gymnastics
Gymnastics originated in Ancient Greece, which used to be a highly military-focused society.
Practising Gymnastics was considered excellent training for Soldiers, who were trained in agility and strength to prepare them for battle. One of the skills obtained by practising Gymnastics was mounting and dismounting a horse swiftly and adequately. Another one was Sword Fighting, which requires high agility and flexibility.
In the Renaissance and through the 18th and 19th centuries, Gymnastics was a joint exercise for boys and young men; it was considered an essential part of a healthy life.
In 1881, the FIG was founded in Liege, Belgium and remained 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.
Depending on the discipline, Gymnastics requires some concrete equipment.
Proper Hand Protectors and Shoes are essential to decrease the chance of sustaining friction injuries on the hands and feet.
Chalk and talcum powder are popular products 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, workstations, mats, barbells and dumbbells, and the equipment mentioned above.
Coordination, agility, muscle strength and body control are essential to perform any discipline successfully and avoid injury.
