Competitive Teams Area
Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is the most popular and well known to the public of all the gymnastics disciplines. It is an incredibly challenging sport, demanding strength, power, flexibility, agility, courage, and a combination of technical precision and artistic creativity. When these elements are mastered, the performances appear almost effortless and are riveting to watch.
The competition program of women’s artistic gymnastics includes the vaulting table, the uneven bars, the beam, and the floor.

The competition program of men’s artistic gymnastics consists of 6 routines: floor exercises, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and the horizontal bar. Floor exercises are performed on a 12×12 meter mat without musical accompaniment. Men’s routines are characterized by a sequence of linked elements that demonstrate simultaneously strength, flexibility, and balance. Each exercise consists of movements which combine a number of elements, such as somersaults, handstands, and rotations.
The maximum time allowed for an exercise is 1 minute and 10 seconds.
Rhythmic gymnastics is a purely feminine Olympic discipline. Totally based on floor work, it is performed to music and uses five apparatus: the rope, the hoop, the ball, the clubs, and the ribbon. Individual exercises are limited to 90 seconds per apparatus and emphasize mastery and agility. For example, it is not unusual to see a wide range of highly technical jumps or leaps in rope exercises. At gymnastics energy we offer a multi-level inter-club approach.
