STEPS TO SUCCESS

The foundation of success for every Olympia gymnast is based on their mental wellness, physical preparation (nutrition & hydration, rest & recovery), functional movement, flexibility, strength and then the skills. In that order.

Parents often ask how can I help my daughter improve? She loves it so much, how can I help her? Olympia loves that we have so many athletes with so much love for the sport and so many amazing parents that support their dreams!

THE key to success starts with a strong foundation.

Skills are the top of the staircase because to achieve our personal best skill set, every athlete will need the foundational skills built in the prior steps. There are no short cuts to success so Dare to Climb with OGA!! 

Strength is emphasized at every practice as well as follow a periodized strength & conditioning plan specifically designed to maximize peak performance at the most desired time. Our strength program sets us apart in injury prevention, and performance development. 

Flexibility is the ability of the joints and muscles to move through a range of motion effectively unrestricted and pain free. Once we can move our bodies properly, we need to increase our range of motion through the movements. 

Functional Movement is the ability to move the body with proper muscle and joint function for effortless, pain-free movement. Functional movement skills are gross motor skills that are building blocks for more complex skills that children will learn throughout their lives.
Physical Preparation is optimized with excellent daily Nutrition & Hydration habits combined with proper Rest and Recovery.
Mental Wellness is an internal resource that helps us think, feel, connect, and function; it is an active process that includes Positive Self-talk, Breathing Techniques, Progressive Relaxation and Imagery/Visualization.
