Many people never consider gymnastics when looking for a recreational activity for their children.
Here are some reasons why you should:
- Gymnastics is the only sport that works total body strength, flexibility, coordination, and aerobic development. Gymnastics enhances gross motor skills.
- Self-discipline is developed due to the very nature of the sport.
- Self-confidence is built through individualized goals and accomplishments, and by positive influences and encouragement from coaches.
- Unlike any other sport, gymnastics is a unique way of developing strength and giving athletes that added edge, no matter what sport or activity they may try.
- Early training results in increased kinesthetic awareness--balance, coordination, thinking skills, etc.
- A NASA study showed that gymnasts have highly developed vestibular mechanisms which increase general learning, (academic as well as physical), memory, etc.
- Gymnastics, above all else, is fun!
Why should I have my Team Gymnast at Arete Gymnastics?
Elite Gymnastics: At Arete Gymnastics our program is built around Elite gymnastics with National team goals and philosophies. Junior Olympics (JO) and college gymnastics follow our Elite program. Other gyms in Utah are JO centered programs hoping they might get a gymnast that will take their gym to Elite.
Arete is an Elite Training center taking gymnasts to Elite!
National staff: Olympic torch bearers and Arete Elite coaches, Dan and Jana Coleman, have been coaching together for over 20 years and have been involved in Elite gymnastics for over 10 years, all while building relationships with National team staff. In Elite gymnastics, relationships matter! National staff are always asking who else we have coming up the Elite pipeline. Don't forget, National staff visits.
Let your gymnast be the next gymnast we recommend to the National staff!
College recruiters: Because of our success at the Elite level, Arete is continually getting requests from recruiters to visit and watch our gymnasts train. We have received letters, visits and request for visits from many major NCAA championship colleges including the U of U, Florida, Oklahoma, Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, and UCLA. In the upcoming months we have scheduled visits with Arizona, UCLA and the U of U.
Be here! Don't miss the opportunity to have your gymnast be seen!
Media Exposure: Arete gymnasts have been featured in newspapers, magazines, television news, television feature stories, and multiple internet feeds. Elite hopefuls can take advantage of our existing media exposure, and media frenzy surrounding our gymnasts. International fan interest in Arete Gymnastics has come from around the world, with local, national and international media interviews and exposure.
Don't be a bi-standard, be part of the story!
Elite Coaches: Dan and Jana Coleman have 25 plus years of coaching experience, and many more years of gymnastics experience. Arete Gymnastics has champions at every level of gymnastics, including the Elite level. At Arete Gymnastics you will find Elite coaches raising their gymnast from start to finish through each level. This creates consistency, polish, and perfection: the keys to Elite success.
Come train with the best!
Sports Rehab: Many athletes get injured; that is part of participating in sports. When a gymnast is injured, most gyms expect the athlete to go to the doctor and return when they are healed. At Arete Gymnastics, Elite athletes begin rehab ASAP with trainer Dan Coleman, who has been working with sports injuries for over 20 years. Dan is an I.D.E.A. Fitness Foundation member, American College of Sports Medicine certified H.F.I. and he studies Exercise Physiology at BYU. Dan has worked with athletes of all ages and multiples sports.
