General Gymnastics Classes
(Age from full time school 4yrs -16yrs+)

Eleanor, General Gymnastics department leader welcomes you…


What are these classes all about

​Our core offering at Affinity are our General Gymnastics classes. These classes include work on both floor and apparatus - think bars, beam, vault and tumble track.

If you aren't sure where to start... start here - its a little bit of everything and provides a great grounding for moving into other gymnastics disciplines or competitive squads in future should you wish.

This activity is where it all started as a club for us.  Our aim was then (and still is!) to offer the best in gymnastics coaching whilst focusing on fun, especially for those that attend once a week - we do all we can to make that hour or so the best hour of your week! It's all about coming and enjoying yourself, trying new things and progressing at your own rate.

We bring the gymnastics skills and friendly support, you bring a readiness to learn and try, add some fun and its a winning combination.


We LOVE our general gymnastics. But don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback we've received from Affinity members to help you decide if you'd like to join us (these are all reviews from our FB page):

What happens at these classes?

​We use various apparatus to develop the full range of gymnastics skills including flexibility, balance, coordination and rhythm. Each week the gymnasts work on floor skills as well as two large pieces of apparatus chosen from bars, beam, vault or tumble track.

It's the best start in gymnastics possible and provides a grounding to progress further or develop into other gymnastic activities or other sports.

​We operate a two week lesson plan, allowing for us to introduce a skill one week and develop it the next.

However as we switch up the equipment each week, one class is never exactly the same as the previous one - this strikes a good balance between allowing the repetition needed to master skills with no chance of getting bored.  The class length progresses with age with 4-6yrs classes being 45 min, 7-9yr olds have a 60 min class and 10-12yr train for 90 min.

For our 13yrs+ classes we run a slightly different class format, where the gymnasts have extra choice and input into their training (with our help of course!). We find this works great for this age group.
