Serving Lake St. Louis, Chesterfield, Eureka and O’Fallon in Missouri
Gymnastics is a discipline for everyone and all can benefit from practicing this sport. Girls’ gymnastics classes are highly beneficial for their body and mind. Within our gym, we offer girls gymnastics but also other areas that may be of interest for many young girls. Tumbling classes, aerial silks, and cheerleading use similar motions and skills to girls gymnastics so it’s not uncommon for girls to take an interest in multiple disciplines.
When it comes to benefits, gymnastics is an integral training which means it’s beneficial for the entire body, and that includes the mind. Girls gymnastics helps young girls to become self-dependent from an early age, to build up endurance and stamina, and teaches the importance of perseverance. Competitive gymnastics are very popular among gymnastic girls and boys.
Girl gymnasts are all-in-one athletes. They are strong, confident, and focused. Our students at Hi-NRG are kids full of energy and excitement for improving every day. As they work with their peers they develop their socialization skills. There’s a real sense of camaraderie and they are friendly with all members in their groups. We often see our veterans step in to help new students whenever they need it.
We offer a full variety of programs for different ages, both boys and girls. We have co-ed programs like trampoline classes where girls and boys are together and they learn from each other. We value students’ ability to make new friends and cultivate social skills that they can use inside and outside the gym. Because children need the necessary skills to listen, take advice, follow directions, and be respectful towards their peers and trainers, we find that gymnastics hits the mark on all of those.
The kids in our gym are also encouraged to take turns and motivate one another to create bonds and foster a healthy, team atmosphere. We focus on communication, respect, and tolerance along with improving athleticism while training with us.
Gymnastics Girls Beginner’s Guide
Gymnastics is one of the most esthetic and dynamic sports in the world. Girls gymnastics especially includes the entire body. For that reason, girl gymnasts develop muscle memory, strength, flexibility, kinesthetic and haptic awareness, depth perception, socialization, discipline, organization, prioritization, internal motivation, respect, and more.
HI-NRG girls gymnastics program is designed to give your child the best experience. We train children to be strong, empowered, and confident young girls. There are three different learning levels beginners, intermediate, and advanced for our students. In order to accomplish several goals and develop certain skills, we encourage regular attendance in an age-appropriate class. Strength, coordination, and flexibility are just some of the main skills girls develop in our classes.
It’s fair to say that we are a performance-based program. That means we do two performances per year because we believe that getting out in front of people helps girls to build confidence. While we don’t like to fail, it does give them an opportunity to develop the courage to try it one more time and perfect movements and techniques. When girls are enrolled in gymnastics classes from an early age, they learn the value of hard work and a sense of duty.
Levels for Girls Gymnastics Classes
Beginners enrolled in our classes will learn how to use the balance beam, bars, and trampolines. We teach such basics like handstands, backbend, kick overs, and back walkovers. Our first two types of classes are for beginner gymnasts and are available for 5 to 12 year olds. Skills in our lesson plan include proper start and landing positions for safety. We also provide the knowledge in all the best high-tech apparatus vaults, trampolines, and beam bars.
All of our lesson plans are made to progress into a new, more advanced skill leading them to the next learning level. Later, at the intermediate/advanced level, our gymnastics girls will have shown mastery of the bars and trampoline. These are two apparatuses that rely heavily on body awareness and self-control. Some of the skills in our advanced lesson plan include back handsprings, front tucks, handstands/cartwheels on beam, and different mixed skilled combination movements. These are glorious feats of strength and take a lot of guidance to learn. Girls in all levels will be trained by coaches in order to challenge them to set new goals for themselves and make the most out of each turn for quality success.
Gymnastics Class Safety for Children
At Hi-NRG, your child’s safety matters most to us. Gymnastics is a fun sport and a great way to stay in shape, but there is always a small risk for injury. At HI-NRG our primary concern is for the children’s safety. Our coaches are highly trained to look after our students. If a student is observed doing the movements incorrectly, coaches will step in and gently correct. If a young gymnast is feeling uncomfortable with a skill, or if they have a concern we are always there for them.
One element of safety that we have put into practice is learning each individual student’s name. It may sound simple, but we think it’s very important because when we are in the gym with multiple students it’s important each individual feels seen. Our coaches are trained to look students in the eyes and say their name to procure they are understanding the guidelines and to let them know they are part of the team. And above all else that we care about them and how they are feeling.
Also, we work hard to create a friendly environment between coaches and kids to make them feel it’s a safe place to practice and be themselves. We teach them to always warm-up and stretch before training. It’s also imperative that young gymnasts only practice on padded floors never on a hard surface. We make it clear that we want our students to tell us if they are uncomfortable with a gymnastic move. If our gymnastics girls are comfortable communicating with all of our coaches then there is less opportunity for injury or accidents.
No matter if they are beginners or advanced students, young girls always train with a coach. Gymnastics girls are encouraged to use the equipment only one person at a time and to wear the appropriate gear that won’t get caught on any of the equipment – this includes jewelry.
The development of strength and flexibility is another safety aspect because the more resistant and flexible our young gymnasts are, the less probability for them to get injured. If girls stretch properly and can hold their weight with no difficulties this usually means their body is capable and will help them avoid pain and accidents.

Special needs program
At Hi-NRG inclusion is very important to us, that’s why we designed an extra special CO-ED program for everyone to join us and become young gymnasts. We have a team of coaches qualified to train anyone with any kind of ability or cognitive development. Our coaches are taught how to communicate effectively so that a child knows exactly what they should be doing and we consider it very important in this program.
One of the things we love about this program is that the regular benefits we see on girls gymnastics are highly duplicated when applying to our special needs classes. Just as is observed in our regular classes, we see that performance and confidence develop faster. And for some specific conditions, the development of strength and flexibility can also be therapeutic. Because the body is obligated to stretch, those exercising muscles can prevent numbness and cramps.
We believe that gymnastics classes at any ability, age, and skill level can help us to accept each other’s differences. We strive to teach our students that our differences are what make us unique and we can overcome obstacles with a little to no effort. We’ve found with most students if they want to achieve their goals they will be able to do it as long as they are disciplined and committed to stick with it.
Co-ed trampoline classes
Some of our locations have available co-ed trampoline classes where girls learn the basic trampoline movements. These classes are based on inclusion and confidence where both boys and girls practice in a fun and safe environment. Hi-NRG Instructors teach appropriate skill progressions, take-off positions, and air awareness. These classes are often popular with our gymnastics girls as it utilizes similar skills.
