a GUIDE to choosing the right  gymnastics beam for your GYMNAST & HOME!

Cartwheel Mat and Balance Beam Line

(a) You are buying for a young child (6 and under). Beam mats accommodate smaller bodies & challenge younger minds. Find fun uses for beam mats here.

(b) Your gymnast has yet to declare their commitment to the sport. Beam mats are a relatively low investment and a tool that can enhance a child’s desire to practice.

(c) You are looking for cute, practical decor. Beam mats come in an array of bright colors and are a fun accent for play rooms and bedrooms!

Floor Beams for Gymnastics

(a) You have little or no room for storage. Floor beams can easily be stored under furniture. Many models fold in half providing greater opportunities for “out of sight” storage.
(b) You are looking for portability. Floor beams transfer inside/outside, upstairs/downstairs, or to another home and back with ease. A great pack-along for vacations too!
(c) Your child has fear. Floor beams allow gymnasts to gain confidence through repetition. Because height is not a factor, gymnasts can focus on technique and accuracy of  beginning and intermediate skills.

8ft Gymnastics Beams

(a) You have adequate space. An 8 ft long gymnastics beam is a reasonable option for many families. This is an adequate length for practice of individual skills such as handstands, cartwheels, back walkovers, etc. If later you have more space or desire competition beam length (16 ft), purchase an adjourning second beam.

(b) Your child likes a challenge. Low beams provide a comparable feel to workout beams used at the gym, more so than floor beams or mats. Note that a high beam is not necessary (or recommended when practicing at home).

(c) You desire a variety of uses. Low beams are great for practicing skills, conditioning, and games. In the future, Gym Gab will provide fun/effective ways to use your home beam.

12 Foot Gymnastics Beams

(1) your gymnast is older or at a higher skill level. Older/taller gymnasts (approx. 12 <) will require more length when practicing skills. If any gymnast desires to practice a sequence of skills, the 16 ft beam is encouraged.  Don’t forget to purchase mats!

(2) you desire a beam comparable to your gym’s equipment. Competition beams are 16 ft in length. Routines are choreographed to use the entire length of the balance beam. Gymnasts wanting to practice routines will benefit from a 12 or 16 ft length.

(3) you view this purchase as a long-term investment. There are several 6 & 8 ft beam options that can be combined to create a greater length (allowing for longevity of use). If you know you have the space, funds, and desire the benefits, then purchase the longer beam!

    Didn’t mention about Nimble Sports! They are cheaper than the competitors….and all of their products (including mats) are made in America!

      Thanks for the suggestion! There are so many great options when it comes to purchasing a beam and we love that Nimble Sports chooses to manufacture their products in the US. We’ve noticed that Nimble offers great deals and have found that their 8 ft. model is priced very comparable to the models we have listed when you calculate shipping into the equation. Definitely a company worth looking at and perhaps as we have more personal experiences with this brand, we can share more insight.

        Hi, just following on from the previous comments about Nimble Sports. My colleague’s daughters use a Nimble Sports mini gym at home in the UK. We liked the products so much that we are now selling them over here.
