Artistic Gymnastics

Number 3 in our look at how to play the Canada Games games.

Gymnastic skills come in handy for other Canada Games sports.

Gymnastics improves your flexibility, muscle strength and even your ability to fall smoothly, which will go over equally well at the bar or the ski hill. Titans Gymnastics Club in Dartmouth offers coached evening classes Mondays and Thursdays from 9pm to 10:30pm. You get a free trial class if you just want to try it out, and for additional classes it’s $5. A membership costs $35. All you need is a t-shirt and shorts. How long before you’ll be able to do a backflip? In as little as a day, or it can take years, according to one coach at Titans. Taiso Gymnastics Club in Sackville has a 45-minute drop-in class for adults with mobility special needs at 2pm on Thursdays. The third club in HRM, Alta Gymnastics, does not offer adult classes.
