Level 1 Forma Gymnastic Fitness Certifications
Conditioning & Movement
These basic conditioning exercises form the foundation for all gymnastic movements and advanced skills, they are divided into 3 body regions: Core, Upper Body & Lower Body.
The movement exercises are a BIG part of how we develop athletes at Forma, we consider them essential for any fitness programme from complete beginner to professional athlete.
Flexibility & Mobility
These have been the missing links for decades in almost every strength and conditioning programme around. Discover the drills and approaches we have honed to develop high levels of joint mobility and control in countless adults.
These should be regarded as essential factors for physical health and longevity, not optional!
Despite the growing popularity of handstands in the fitness world, finding quality coaches with the necessary experience and knowledge is still quite a rarity.
We have developed an extremely efficient and thorough programme to help even complete beginners learn how to begin hand-standing safely.
