The Arc Gymnastics Seminar takes  intermediate trainees, hobbyists and coaches

through two days of Gymnastics Coaching for Functional Fitness.

Over 2 days of practical training, and theoretical input, you'll gain an understanding of the following:

- In-depth technical breakdowns of important skill progressions.

- The system of going from from 0-5 of each skill.

- The most common form breakdowns of each skill & how to address them.

- How to structure & programme individual Gymnastics training.

- How to combine Gymnastics, Weightlifting & Met-Con's and limit interference.

- Programming for day-to-day fitness classes, gymnastics classes & 1-1 / Online.

- Learn various spotting techniques, and be spotted through drills to learn FAST.

- Undergo Flexibility Assessments, and how to address your weaknesses.


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

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

We then work steadily through the progression line introducing new points of performance one set at a time and spotting where it's relevant.

Important concepts are emphasised between sets, so the group improves their form and understands why the form is improving.

We then re-cap, and provide even more information on elements such as programming.

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

You can purchase the Arc Gymnastics Coaching Book as an addition.

This is a 150 page document containing the breakdown of each of the Gymnastics Skills. The sections re-caps all the important concepts from the weekend into chapters.

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.

What is the refund policy?
