Gymnastic skills book

Head Over Heels About Gymnastics

‘Head Over Heels About Gymnastics’ is a child friendly book that provides step-by-step instructions and top tips explaining how to perform a large variety of gymnastic floor skills via simple language and eye catching photography. This book is a must-have for budding gymnasts of all ages and abilities, covering many different elements of the sport from balance to strength, flexibility, co-ordination, speed and control in addition to positive body awareness.

The book begins with example warms-ups and stretches, moving on to cover posture and all basic gymnastics shapes, which are instrumental in performing more complex skills. These skills are then covered in the next sections; Jumps, Skills, Rolls and Leaps. Bringing all of these skills together, the book then demonstrates how combined, these skills can be used to create routines.

Customer testimonials from Amazon:

Love the way it stands up on its own. A very sturdy book. Thank you.

I ordered this book for my nieces birthday, she is 7 and I don’t know much about kids or gymnastics so im always a bit stuck to with what to buy her. I brought this and she loves it!

Brought this book primarily for my 6 yr old son to help him practise him gymnastics at home but my 12 yr old has been using it too. The clear pictures make it easy for the 6yr old to see what he is supposed to be doing and the notes and ideas for making the element harder have really pushed the 12 yr old to try new things. Love the fact that the book stands up on its own making it easy for them to use whilst practising. Would highly recommend this book to anyone who has children interested in gymnastics or even anyone who wants ideas to get their children more active but don’t have a lot of space, my children have used my lounge to practise most of the elements in the book and it has been lovely to see them doing something other than watching television. Excellent product. Thank you very much.
