FreeG fuses traditional gymnastics and acrobatic tricks, with kicks and leaps made famous through martial arts and brought to worldwide attention by festival performances and stunt actors.
FreeG gets your body moving in ways never thought possible. It will get your heart racing and develop a heightened sense of spatial awareness that can be put to good use in a variety of other sports (including boarding, biking, skiing, climbing and surfing).
FreeG is surprisingly easy to get into. And once you're hooked, it's almost impossible to stop. You'll start by getting to grips with some of the basic techniques and jumps. Then it's over to you. Get creative, set up the walls how you want, and challenge your friends to perform increasingly amazing tricks. Sessions are available for ages from eight years olds to adults. There are no competitions in FreeG but if you want to test yourself against others, you can transfer your skills to other more competitive types like acrobatic gymnastics, TeamGym or tumbling.

The FreeG Kids program introduces participants to key concepts and basic skills. The 8 sessions are more structured and use a wider variety of ‘Warrior Circuit’ activities to keep children active and engaged. As with all LaunchPad Gymnastics programs, FreeG Kids sessions focus on teaching children fundamental movement skills using fun and engaging sequential activities that build on the existing skills and knowledge of each participant.
Children are given opportunities to demonstrate their ability to combine elements of effort, space and time when performing movement sequences with and without equipment. They will discuss and demonstrate different movement pathways and flow when solving movement challenges.
Within a FreeG class, it is not unusual for participants to find new and creative uses for traditional gymnastics apparatus, or to be combining different apparatus into a series of obstacles. Many familiar gymnastics skills have been modified for various reasons such as to increase difficulty, or include a new take off technique and a variety of new skills have been developed within this discipline.
