Learning Handstand

“I’ve have always wanted to do that!”

The handstand is an amazing skill and is not just available to the gymnasts. This skill is possible to learn with proper progression training, time commitment, and, most importantly, consistency.

At BodyTree GST, we follow the progressions developed by Christopher Sommer, a US National Men’s Olympics gymnastic coach – a proven method to learn this skill with quality, precision and without injuries.

Due to popular demand, BodyTree GST is organizing another Handstand Workshop for fitness enthusiasts who aim to make their training complete, and to achieve the physique like a gymnast.

What are the benefits of acquiring this skill?

  • • Build strength in the shoulders, upper back and core
  • • Improve spatial awareness
