Gymnastics is a multifaceted Olympic sport. In addition to strength, flexibility and speed, coordination and elegance also play a large role. There are various disciplines within gymnastics for which different apparatus is used, such as the bars, the balance beam and the rings. The exercises and routines are performed on these apparatus. In competitions, a gymnast is judged on technique, style and execution.

Gymnastics association D.S.T. Pegasus offers gymnastics training in collaboration with X. You can only participate in the gymnastics training sessions as a member of this association.
Training sessions always start with a joint warming-up, which mainly involves exercises to improve your strength and flexibility. You then move on to the beam, the rings, the men's parallel and women's uneven bars, the vault, the floor, the pommel horse and the horizontal bar. You train in small groups (based on ability) and supervised by an experienced gymnast.
It’s also possible to draw up your own training plan. During the training sessions, you practice both basic techniques such as the handstand and the start of the 'tipping movement’, and more complex exercises such as the ‘Arabian 180/360 backflip’. Those who are new to gymnastics start with the easier exercises such as somersaults or cartwheels.
