Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring balance strength, flexibility, agility, endurance and control. The movements involved in gymnastics contribute to the development of the arms, legs, shoulders, chest and abdominal muscle groups. Alertness, precision, daring, self-confidence and self-discipline are mental traits that can also be developed through gymnastics. (Source)

When you think about gymnasts, some of these stars come to mind: the “Queen of Gymnastics” Nadia Comaneci, the first US Olympic All-Around Gold Medalist Mary Lou Retton and more recent stars such as Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, and Gabby Douglas.
