Pre-Requisites:

To get the most from this Seminar we recommend that you have at least 2 Strict Pull-Ups, and you are able to Kick Up to a Handstand against the wall.

The Practical Content:

Each practical starts with the flexibility & joint preparation demands for that skill.

We then through the progression line starting with the fundamentals, then progressing steadily to the full skill.

Participants will be taught the spotting techniques for relevant movements, and will have a chance to practice correcting common breakdowns.

Important concepts & cues are introduced between working sets in a progressive fashion so all attendees build a complete understanding of the whole skill.

Each practical is re-capped at the end, where participants can take notes and ask questions!

Participants need not worry about having to remember everything from the weekend.

Mike Morrison - @moe_199

I was blown away with how much knowledge I gained as an athlete and a coach. He broke down the gymnastics movements in such an effective and efficient way that it was so easy to make improvements In just one weekend!

Dorota Grzelak - @doro_gymnastics

I have never been on a course which had me actively learning and practicing gymnastics coaching skills as much as this one. The value for money is unbelievable - I use the tools learnt at this Seminar in my coaching everyday.

Josh Stratton - @coachstratts

Truly amazing. The takeaways from this course have elevated my coaching to an entirely new level. Simon you're a wizard at what you do, would love to come again, have a class time throwing this down for the Aussies

Laura Elliott - @laura_angell89

I've been working with Si for 2 years now in his online program, and whenever a Seminar pops up in the U.K I always attend. Not only is the course invaluable, it's also so much fun!

Peter Elliott - peterelliott_68

Just want to thank you personally for an amazing weekend. Not many coaches have that ability to suit the wide range of students. I can see why Laura holds you in such high esteem.

Catherine Sargent - @catherinesargent

Attending the Arc Gymnastics Seminar is the best investment I have ever made. As an absolute beginner at the time I have now mastered skills I never dreamed possible

Amila Topic - @amila_kineticfitcoach

This Seminar made me realise just how attainable the high skill movements can be for the average athlete.The movement progressions laid out at this course make sense and flow so well. Every coach + athlete should take the time to check this out.

Cayla Jardine-Hunter - @coachcayla.jh

This Seminar was a game changer. I have helped more people than ever before with higher complexity skills. I took the Seminar in August 2023 and have been in his coaching group ever since, it's excellent. If you get the opportunity to do one of the Arc Seminars do not miss out!!

Daniel Oliviera - @rdgoclone

Simon this was great, had so much fun. To be honest I was a bit terrified in the beginning thinking I was not at a "level" that i could take the Seminar, but straight away you put me at ease and really made me enjoy bot days.

Siobhan O'Neill - @barbellefit

Savage course Simon thank you! If anyone is on the fence you'll learn so much!

Jamie Shortt @shortt_ehh

One of the best decisions I made was to jump onto this course! The knowledge that you have Simon is one thing, the way it's articulated is another. Also, he's not always serious, great banter!

Kristina Wong - @kristinawong

Omg having withdrawals. This was such a blast.

Emma Gordon - @emmakaraoke

It was such a great weekend. Even for someone like me who is def a hobbyist and not a professional. Amazing technical coaching by Simon and so much support from all the pro's in the room.

James McSorley - @james.mcsorley

Unbelievable weekend. So much for both coaches and athletes. Don't think I've ever taken as much usable content away from a single workshop

FAQ's

Is this just for Coaches? I'm not a coach.

The Seminar is not just for coaches. It's for hobbyists, casual trainers and intermediate athletes with at least 2 Strict Pull-Ups.

Anyone who wants to improve their training knowledge and have practical experience with the necessary progressions and drills should sign up straight away without hesitation.

About 50% of the attendance usually comprises Coaches. The reason they're attracted to this Seminar is because they will learn a lot about the ARC methodology for running classes, and implementing gymnastics into their various coaching practices.

There is one specific lecture only for coaches which takes place at the end of day Saturday - if you're not a coach, you do not need to stay for this.

I'm put off signing up because I'm not as good as the people in your videos. I don't want to be embarassed.

The reason good movement is on display in my videos is because of the coaching structure, and the breakdown of movements. For this reason, you also will display movement standards you didn't realise you were capable of.

I also tend to prioritise show casing "good" movement, as opposed to "poor" movement.

Unfortunately, for some people, this creates a false perception that everyone is already *amazing* at gymnastics, but the reality is everyones weaknesses will be exposed at this seminar, and that's kind of the point.

If you have 2 Strict Pull-Ups and a kick up to the wall, you're good to go.

I don't have the minimum requirements, can I still come?!

The minimum requirement of 2 Pull-Ups is there purely as a recommendation to avoid a certain type of Novice trainer getting overwhelmed.

If you're a beginner, or you're still working on your first Pull-Up, but you have a positive attitude and you're really keen to learn, then please sign up; the first 15 minutes of each practical contains the exact work you need to be doing.

However, if it's likely that you will get mad at yourself, or sulk because there are exercises you struggle with later in the practical, then you should not sign up.

If you want to learn in person - sign up.

If you want to actually possess the basics, I would instead sign up to ARC and do the Level 1 course. This contains the work, and all the learning materials you need to get the basics down.
