Magna Vitae Gymnastics
Children can have fun, make friends and improve their physical condition by joining our Magna Vitae Gymnastics club at Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth. Children will already be doing some basic gymnastics without even realising. Whether that’s bouncing on a trampoline, doing cartwheels, hanging from bars or stretching. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that. But if they decide to learn, they will be supported every step of the way by our expert coaches.
We affiliate with British Gymnastics and follow all guidance and training they provide. We feel this will give us the best opportunity to develop gymnasts of all ability and ages. We have recently applied their COVID-19 guidance, which give everybody a safe environment to thrive.
Why is it so popular?
Some people do gymnastics just to improve their physical condition. Others enjoy competing in regional, national and international competitions. But by far the biggest reason is the fun factor. There’s always a great atmosphere when people are practicing and training together. And learning how to do somersaults, flips and tricks just feels good.
Who’s it for?
One great thing about the sport is there’s a type of gymnastics to suit every age, ability, fitness level and personality. From toddlers learning motor skills to teens, keen to learn cool new moves, to adults looking for a fresh way to workout, everyone can get a kick out of learning new physical skills.

Due to some updates from British Gymnastics, they have now changed their grading system for our Gymnastics sessions. This new learning criteria is called RISE. This has given us the opportunity to implement a new structure for our lessons and for parents to monitor their child’s progress.
