  • Benefits of practising Gymnastics for Children

    The main findings from my PhD research are now published

    27 January 2021
    'Practising artistic gymnastics maintains children’s weight in the normal limits, and has a positive impact on all of the health-related biomarkers of their physical fitness'... These are one of the main findings from my research (that spread over the last few years) on the health-related physical fitness of school children practising artistic gymnastics from the UK. I can now finally share the full data with you, as our manuscript has just been accepted and published in the International Journal of Applied Exercise Physiology (indexed in Web of Science).
