Free Gymnastics, otherwise known as FreeG, is a growing sport. FreeG is similar to Parkour, but is done indoors. Gymnastics centers are springing up to offer FreeG, and some existing centers are adding the equipment needed for it. FreeG is especially gaining popularity within the UK.
The attraction of FreeG is that there are no set ways that the gymnast has to perform and no competitions. It’s just plain fun. Participants, run, jump, flip, twist, and turn according to their own desires and abilities. This video shows a variety of types of freestyle gymnastics tricks that kids (and sometimes adults) enjoy.
Participants get to express themselves creatively through movement and a fantastic range of movements. To help capture the power and explosive nature of this fun sport, British gymnastics has developed a new club-based activity which offers a range of freestyle-specific equipment and training techniques to take gymnastics trick learning, to a new level.
