Gymnastics for All

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

Vice President (VP):

Gymnastics for All activities contribute to personal health, fitness and well being – physical, social, intellectual and psychological.

The focus of Gymnastics for All activities is Fun, Fitness, Fundamentals, and 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. It embodies the Federation’s sport culture in its entirety, a culture centred on Man and motion.

Two events are organised under the leadership of FIG Gymnastics for All. Since 1953 the World Gymnaestrada is held every four year. This is a non-competitive event with performances during a week. Around 20 000 gymnasts from the whole world participate. Since 2009 the World Gym for Life Challenge is held and also every four year, on the odd year between the World Gymnaestrada. This is an International contest for gymnastics groups and at the first edition 2,000 gymnasts participated.
