At Tumbling X you get exactly what we at Ollerup are best at. We are pretty into gymnastics – and Tumbling X is our gymnastics course, laser focused on making you skilled, and on having a great time in the process. For 100 years we have given gymnastics, tumbling and sports our very best, and we still do today. This means that in addition to our fantastic daily life and facilities, you get exactly the training you dream of.
At Tumbling X, we focus on creating versatile, strong, skilled gymnasts. Speed, technique and strength are vital components in all the basic disciplines of gymnastics, and when we find exactly your level and your development zone, you get the maximum benefit from the training. That means sweaty backs and sore muscles. But it also means momentum and development between every single session.
While you develop as a gymnast, you get the opportunity to combine your experience and learning into a leadership education in gymnastics. Here we combine learning, development and new perspectives, so that you not only expand your own skills as a gymnast, but also learn how to use your professional and sporting ballast to teach others. It gives you an obvious opportunity to turn your gymnastics competencies into a professional work tool in the future.
If you want to be better – whether your ambitions are to get on the Elite Team, Cirque du Soleil or just start from scratch – Tumbling X is the way forward for you. Based on the classic basic gymnastics, we elevate and develop you so that you can participate at exactly the level you aspire to. And don’t worry – you don’t have to be a born gymnast. That kind of thing doesn’t exist. We know quite a few of the most talented gymnasts – and they have all reached their level by spending a tremendous amount of hours in the tumbling center.
Repetition is, as you may have heard, the mother of wisdom, but with the right instruction and feedback, your development can be markedly faster. We help you put together the small details so that you reach new heights, safe technique and elegance in even the difficult tumbling passes – regardless of your level and regardless of your ambitions.
There are lots of opportunities at Ollerup.
See what you can use a Course for!
Tumbling X is Ollerup’s broad gymnastics course, and therefore also among our most popular courses. We’ve spent a long time creating the best possible conditions for practicing, developing and teaching gymnastics, and therefore we also meet an enormous number of gymnasts who come to South Funen to develop in their sport. This course is for them – and for you. Both if you are aiming for the Olympics – and if that goal is still far away.
Gymnastics is not just an elite sport – it was created for everyone. And that’s why we also enjoy teaching you, who might want to learn gymnastics from a slightly more modest level, but still want to challenge and develop yourself. At Ollerup, we are also fortunate to enjoy a good international reputation and therefore often have students from our Nordic neighbors and more distant corners of the world. You will meet gymnasts of all levels and of many nationalities when you walk into our tumbling center at Ollerup.
