About Aerobic Gymnastics

Aerobic gymnastics is a competitive sport originating from traditional aerobics in which complex, high-intensity movement patterns and elements of varying difficulty are performed to music. In addition to aerobics, it combines elements of acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and oftentimes artistic gymnastics along with music, dance and choreography.

Performing Aerobic Gymnastics

  • The performance area is 7 metres (23 ft) square for juniors or 10 metres (33 ft) square for adults and for aero dance. Performers fit into divisions: junior divisions, made up of primary and secondary teams; novice divisions, including individual men and women; intermediate divisions made up of individual men and women, mixed pairs and trios; and elite divisions including individual men and women, mixed pairs and trios. A three-person team may be made of any combination of men and women in a trio. Step teams and general divisions also exist.

  • In International competition there are 7 different events: Individual Women, Individual Men, Mixed Pairs, Trios, Group (five athletes), Step and Dance (both eight athletes). The last four are regardless of the Genders of the athletes.

  • The performances are made up of the following elements: dynamic strength, static strength, jumps and leaps (power), kicks (dynamic strength), balance and flexibility. The routine must be performed entirely to music. Additionally, a maximum of ten elements from following families are allowed: push-ups, supports and balances/holds, kicks and splits, jumps and leaps. Some movements in other gymnastic sports (sport acrobatics, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, etc.) are now allowed, such as handsprings, handstands, acrobatic flips, and aerial somersaults this is the FIG (International) program.
