Cartwheels And Backflips at RnR Fit

“Tearing your kids away from TV is not such a difficult task” – a statement made by a Whitefield parent.

Sounds like something that most of us have on our wishlist. But this can be reality too, if your kids are a part of the gymnastic fun in Whitefield at RnR Fit. In fact, the statement made earlier, comes from a Whitefield parent whose kids are a regular at this gymnastic facility and totally love their routine – so much, that they are unwilling to let go of a single class.

Bang on the Varthur main road, near Mainland China, is this 5000 sq ft of colorful, fun and a professional gymnastic facility for kids and adults. RnR Fit offers professional gymnastic training for kids of all ages. From developing basic motor skills and body coordination for toddlers to learning ropes, bars and benches for kids and adults, RnR Fit offers it all, under one roof.

When I visited this place, I was pleasantly surprised on various counts. First – the location itself. Right on the main road and yet away from the noise. You might assume the place as a garage from the outside, but that is only because it shares the campus with one. Having said that, because of this space sharing, there is plenty of parking available within the gates – a huge plus given the traffic on Varthur road.

The next surprise I got, was on entering the gym. The sheer size of it!!! I could immediately see why kids loved the space. Personally, I don’t think any of the apartment complexes in our neighborhood offers such a large space just for the kids. RnR Fit has further added charm to the place with its colorful mats and equipment.

And it is not just the type and variety of equipment but the attention to safety that totally had me in awe of this facility. The 16 ft long foam pit as a soft landing for kids, the well grounded bars and most importantly, the clean equipments.

Further more, I also, figured that it is not just any coach that trains the kids here, but certified coaches from the Mumbai based Academy – The Gymnast. The Gymnast is known to train professionals in gymnastics for Commonwealth games and International competitions. RnR Fit brings this very coaching to our own neighbourhood.

With World class equipment and professional coaches, RnR Fit has ensured that they erase any anxiety that a parent may have w.r.t to the safety of sending their kids here. Need to see it for yourself ? Check out this video of the kids at RnR Fit.

Besides gymnastics, RnR Fit also, offers the following-

Rhythm and Rhyme parent-child classes for kids from 6 months of 5 years

Nrityarutya dance classes

Barre Fusion for adults

Kungfu classes

Autism Fitness classes.

RnR Fit keeps adding activities to its repetoire and is soon going to be offering Bboying as well.

RnR Fit is not just about classes. It offers you a great venue to host your kids’ birthday. With a dedicated party room, an access to the gymnastics and the favored sponge pit, every kid who has celebrated or attended the party here has left with a smile and a phrase – “awesome party”.

It is no wonder that you have the Whitefield parents making statements like “Tearing your kids away from TV is not such a difficult task“. All you need to do is head to RnR Fit and get yourselves enrolled. As a special incentive for the Whitefielders – you can try out your first class for Free.

Gymnastics fitness drills reviewed

Dear Parent,

Welcome to the amazing world of sports. Gymnastics, along with athletics and swimming, has been recognized by the International Olympic Committee as one of the three foundation sports from which all others stem.

You have seen your children learn several new tricks in the past few months. Their strength, flexibility, agility, balance and coordination has improved as they attend each class.

However, their training does not end at class.  Your child should follow a home workout routine which includes sprinting and strengthening exercises. We recommend a short 30 to 45 minutes everyday. This is analogous to homework for academics.

Listed below is a short workout of 10 exercises that we recommend.

BEGINNER/LEVEL 1 (Workout at Home)

1Running/Jogging10 min or 1km
2Sprints100 to 200 mts twice
3Side hop running200 mts once
4Straight toe jumps50 to 100 times
5Tuck Jumps30 times
6Split jumps30 times
7Knee Pushups for fresher & straight Pushups for others20 repsX3 Sets
8Leg press drills for splits(straddle)20 times
9Side splits and forward splits(straddle)20 times each
10Bridge Practice60 secs X 5 reps

After the workout, the child should relax by sitting in Padmasana for a minute.

We will also be sending out a fun way where you and your kids can engage in a family workout.

When should Kids Start Gymnastics?

If you wanted a one word response it’d be – NOW!

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.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapor around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendor of these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
