Gymnastics Equipment Purchasing Options:

What, Why, & Where to Buy!

Gymnastics equipment can be a fun and a useful tool for the home. However, we advise being selective and methodical when purchasing gymnastics equipment! Our favorite at-home option is the balance beam . . . so many benefits for gymnasts of all ages and abilities! Learn more HERE. Panel (folding) mats are also a useful and diverse tool. Although not a great match for all gymnasts, bars and cheese mats can be fun pieces to add to your collection of home gymnastics equipment.

Why this balance beam:

In terms of training at home, length is more important than height! Confidence on the balance beam is achieved with repetition and proper technique, not distance from the ground.  A balance beam offering more length to perform tricks and choreographed routines, can propose storage issues in the home. A two beam model is ideal because it provides length for training, but can easily be put a way. It also offer options for families with more than one gymnasts. Children can practice together or train on their own balance beam! Click above for more details.

This beam is 16′ long, so make sure you can provide adequate space and proper surfacing to insure safety.

Why this mat:

Panel mats are possibly the most versatile gymnastics mat. An unfolded mat provides padded coverage for singular tricks or can be placed under other equipment such as a balance beam.

Why this bar:

Although home bar sets aren’t ideal for older or more advanced gymnasts, they can be fun for the little, ambitious ones, who love to monkey-around. Skills that are appropriate for home bars include pull-overs, back hip-circles, front hip-circles, casting, shoot throughs, etc. We highly recommend buying a bar with leg extensions (for added stability) and a junior practice mat to place under the bar.
