Are you looking for a friendly atmosphere where your child can move and exercise safely, all while learning gymnastics skills?

Is there an Olympic gold medalist just waiting to learn how to perfect his or her handstand in your house?

The city of Davis Gymnastics and Dance Center invites you to move with them on National Gymnastics Day, Saturday, Sept. 22. The gymnastics coaching team welcomes visitors from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Civic Center Gym, 23 Russell Blvd.

National Gymnastics Day is all about letting children explore fitness and become familiar with the sport of gymnastics and dance. This year, the gym is teaming up with first lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative. Children can move by tackling the huge obstacle course, completing fitness rotations and enjoying healthy snacks in the lobby. This free event is open to children of all ages and abilities.

Physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. It helps control weight, builds lean muscle, promotes strong bones, muscles and joint development, and decreases the risk of health problems.

These days there are lots of things competing for a child’s attention, with video games, the Internet and entire TV networks geared toward entertaining children. Sitting on the couch watching TV or playing video games for hours at a time is pretty common these days, especially in the summer months.

More than ever, it’s important to encourage your children and their friends to unplug and get moving.

National Gymnastics Day will help you find the best gymnastics class for your child in a noncompetitive environment. For more information, or to register for a class, call the Community Services Office at 530-757-5626. Online registration is also available at www.cityofdavis.org.
