Gymnastics for All (GfA) is the historical and cultural discipline of the FIG (Federation International Gymnastics).  Created by its founder, Nicolas Cuperus (Belgium) in 1881.  GfA brings together gymnasts of all ages, all genders, of all cultural backgrounds to enjoy the diverse range of physical activities that gymnastics offers.

Gymnastics for All activities contribute to personal health, fitness and well being – physical, social, intellectual and psychological.  The focus of GfA is the 4 F’s (Fun – Fitness –  Fundamentals –  Friendship) and can involve gymnastics with or without apparatus, gymnastics and dance.  It offers aesthetic experiences in movement for participants and spectators while providing the opportunity to focus on items that are of particular interest in a national and cultural context.

This makes gymnastics one of the largest sporting organisations contributing  to global health, fitness and well-being in the world!
