Gymnastics Beam: When Practice Makes Perfect

Your young gymnast will likelyGymnastics Beam try to use just about anything as a Gymnastics Balance Beam – the curb, the countertop, the railing, you name it.

To keep them safe and recreate their practice environment in your home, consider purchasing a practice gymnastics beam.

There are a few varieties, all low to the ground while still giving your athlete an opportunity to practice skills.

As an added bonus, those tricks they are scared to try on the high beam in the gym can be tried on the low beam in your own home (with a mat, of course) until their confidence is ready to take them to new heights in the gym in front of their coaches.

Several Varieties To Choose From

As mentioned, there are a few different varieties.  You can opt to go with suede for a feel similar to the one your athlete practices on in the gym, or foam for easy care and soft landings, or even folding varieties that can be stored away when not in use.

Some are nearly flush to the ground (raised an inch or two with a side that slopes down to the floor) and others mimic a high beam and actually provide your gymnast with an inch or two of clearance between the bottom of the beam and the floor (see featured products).

These practice beams cover a variety of needs.  We bet you’ll find one that works for you and your athlete!
