Head over Heels Gymnastics is a fantastic new way to learn, practice and perfect your gymnastics skills in your own home. Whether you are a beginner, a bit more advanced, have lessons already or just want to learn alone from home, then these guides for children are incredibly user friendly, simple to follow and progress at a good rate to see your child learn, improve and be challenged! My daughter has been attending weekly gymnastics lessons for the last couple of years and loves it so much that she practices at home notably with headstands on her bed, and feet up against the painted wall when she is able. The first major bonus of this book is the spiral binding of the book along with the fact that it has a 3D element that allows it to stand up so you can view it as you perform the moves — this is a fantastic feature and really enables the book to be used as you practice. The book is very clearly laid out with a contents page so you can go directly to the skill you wish to practice or if you start from the beginning it takes you through a warm up then gradually guides you from simple moves to those more challenging and even helps you with mini routines at the end. What I like about this book is that it comes with full colour photographic pictures guiding you through each move so you can see exactly how to perform and accomplish them to your best ability. As much as my daughter is ultra sporty and partakes in all sports be it rugby, football, swimming, athletics etc.

Head over heels about Gymnastics is a set of DVDs and written books that introduce gymnastics skills. Please note I was given this product for the purpose of review, but the opinions here are entirely my own. I have spent time looking up gymnastics moves so I can at least prevent injury, but Head over heels about Gymnastics has done all that for you so you can get cracking learning some new skills and having great fun whilst doing it. I should say from the get go that the Head Coach featured in the DVD whose brain child this programme is does explain that this is not meant to replace formal gymnastics coaching, but rather support it by allowing continuing development and practice at home with the photos and examples on the DVD to remind the children how to execute the moves correctly. My girls are only two and have not started gymnastics yet so we very much stuck to the basics. The boys are doing gymnastics at school each week so were more familiar with the movements and able to get more stuck in.
