What can I expect at RnR Fit ?
We, at RnR FIT, are attempting to get our kids to experience fitness while having fun at the same time . Our NEWLY ESTABLISHED FACILTY AT WHITEFIELD is equipped with state of the art facilities and skilled coaches handpicked from across India !!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the equipment you can expect to see at RnR Fit .
Uneven Bars : The uneven bars or asymmetric bars is an artistic gymnastics apparatus. It is used only by female gymnasts. It is made of a steel frame. The bars are parallel to each other and set at different heights allowing the gymnast to jump from bar to bar. The low bar is set at about 5 and 1/2 ft., and the high bar usually over 8 ft. This height is adjustable, and hence the bars can be used at different heights based on the level and skill of the gymnast. For elite gymnasts, however, these measurements are standardized.
Balance beams: The balance beam is an artistic gymnastics apparatus, as well as the event performed using the apparatus. Both the apparatus and the event are sometimes simply referred to as "beam". The beam is a small, thin wooden beam 5 meters (16.4 feet) long, 10 cm (4 inches) wide, and raised 125 cm (4.1 feet) from the floor. It is typically raised from the floor on a leg or stand at both ends. The balance beam is only performed by female gymnasts. Beams are usually made of leather like material. The performer begins the exercise by mounting the beam by either a vault or a jump and executes movements that must include steps, running, jumps, turns, sitting positions, and some held, or posed, positions. The duration of the exercise is 70 to 90 seconds.

Vault : The vault is an artistic gymnastics apparatus on which gymnasts perform, as well as the skill performed using that apparatus. Vaulting is also the action of performing a vault. Both male and female gymnasts perform the vault.
Roman Rings (for boys): Roman rings are standard apparatus used in male gymnastics. They consist of two rings, typically made of wood . They are also known as the still rings, due to the goal of optimal performance of the male gymnast, which is to keep the rings as still as possible during a routine. The use of gymnastics rings is not limited to competitive sport.
Parallel bars : The apparatus consists of two parallel bars that are held parallel to, and elevated above, the floor by a metal supporting framework. The bars are composed of wood or other material, with an outer coating of wood.The vertical members of the supporting framework are adjustable so the height of the bars above the floor and distance between the bars can be set optimally for each gymnast.
A routine performed on the parallel bars must include various elements that depend on the gymnast's competitive level. A typical performance will involve swinging skills in a support position (on the hands), a hanging position, and an upper arm position (resting on the inner bicep). Each routine ends with a dismount from either the ends of the bars or the side of the apparatus.
Horizontal Bars : The horizontal bar, also known as the high bar, is an apparatus used by male gymnasts in Artistic Gymnastics. It traditionally consists of a cylindrical metal (typically steel) bar that is rigidly held above and parallel to the floor by a system of cables and stiff vertical supports.
The horizontal bar is often considered one of the most exciting gymnastics events due to the power exhibited by gymnasts during giant swings and spectacular aerial releases and dismounts that often include multiple flips or twists and, in some cases, airborne travel over the bar. A bar routine, which is a sequence of several bar skills, usually includes giants with various grips (overgrip, undergrip, dorsal grip, mixed grip), in-bar work, turns, release and regrasp skills, and a dismount.
What should my child or I wear for Gymnastics class?
Boys/Males: Elastic gym shorts, fitted T-shirts, tank tops, warm-ups.
Girls/Females: Any color or print leotard, gymnastic shorts. No tights, skirts, jewelry or jeans.
Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face (in a braid, bun or ponytail) so that it stays up for the entire workout.
All students should be barefoot while in class. No chewing gum or jewelry are allowed.
Be sure your child’s personal items are marked with their name.
Why is Gymnastics important?
Parents often ask “Why should I put my child in gymnastics? Is being able to do a back flip or forward roll going to help them later in life?” The answer would be NO, being able to do a flip or a roll is not going to help them get ahead in school or in work. What will help them is the multitude of skills, both physical skills for a healthy lifestyle and personal skills to succeed in school and work, learned from doing gymnastics. It is important to practice gymnastics for 3 – 5 years, if not longer, to get the full benefit of its teachings.
As an after-school activity, gymnastics has been growing dramatically in popularity each year, and with good reason. Parents are becoming increasingly more aware of the sport’s health and educational value, while children just want to keep up with an activity that helps them feel good about themselves, both physically and emotionally.
Gymnastics is more than just another sport. It is an activity that offers something different to each participant. In gymnastics, the highly active child has a positive outlet for their energy while the less-physically-motivated child is thrilled by learning a skill suited just for them.
What will my child “take away” from learning Gymnastics ?
Gymnastics provides an ideal opportunity to learn about teamwork; sportsmanship; fair play and dedication. Gymnastics helps people learn to work hard for objectives that can take years to achieve.

What are the benefits of Gymnastics ?
Gymnastics is beneficial for improving concentration and mental focus. Studies show that there is a particularly significant relationship between physical activity and cognitive functioning in children (Etnier & Sibley, 2003) and with gymnastics covering such a diverse area, cognitive application is important throughout the entire scope of activities.
The benefits of Gymnastics ,as we have pointed out, are numerous , however ,If you’re still not convinced,we have saved possibly the most persuasive benefit of gymnastics till last : It’s really good fun! Learning how to tumble, flip, swing, and comes as close to self powered flight as is possible anything but boring. There is always another step to learn; it is possible to learn something new every single class you attend. A regular workout also releases endorphins (the happiness chemicals that improves mood)
There are so many diverse and wide-reaching disciplines involved within the sport that it is accessible to all ages and abilities and there are benefits at every stage.
What is the ideal age to begin practising Gymnastics ?
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, kids between 2 and 5 years could start gymnastics, as long as classes are geared for their maturity and motor skill levels. The academy specifically mentions gymnastics as a good sport for kids ages 6 to 9 years old.
Many of the world's elite gymnasts began training very young. The early start is advantageous given the work required.Young gymnasts tend to be lighter, more flexible and more easily taught than older gymnasts. Difficult gymnastics skills are more easily and better learned at a younger age.Younger gymnasts also do not usually have any fear of doing gymnastics skills and they adapt to hard training regimens more easily.
Many people believe that 15 is too old to start gymnastics. It is never too late to gain the benefits from practicing this sport. Gymnastics will improve performance in any other sport, as well as improving overall fitness and functional strength to a level that most people never attain.
When should Kids Start Gymnastics?
Most Gyms offer Parent-Tot classes starting as young as 12 months old. Is this necessary? Of course not. Is this a great opportunity for you and your little one to explore the active world of walking, crawling, jumping, rolling, hopping, climbing, and swinging together? Absolutely. Bonus: it’s a social event for both of you!
Some parents aren’t able (or don’t have the desire) to run around the gym with their tot. If this is the case, 3 year olds are usually able to attend class on their own. Does your child have to start this young to be successful? No! Is it a great activity to prepare for school and provide enjoyment and physical development? Yes! (I’m aware a bit of the WHY is slipping in here – it’s hard to resist).
Some kids don’t get the opportunity to try gymnastics until later in life. Is it still worth trying? Definitely! Many gyms offer gymnastics and tumbling classes that are exclusively designed for teens. If you’re really lucky, you’ll find a gym with an adult class!
I’ve had parents ask if their child needed to know how to do a forward roll, be potty trained or follow directions before starting gymnastics. Nope. The forward roll will be taught, try a Parent-Tot class if your little one is yet to be diaper-free, and learning to follow directions is part of the gymnastics experience! If your child is disruptive, you may be asked to tag along . . . stick with it, and find a coach that has great class management skills.
