Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of sequences of movements requiring physical strength, flexibility, and kinesthetic awareness, such as handsprings, handstands, forward rolls, arials and tucks.
It developed from fitness and beauty practices used by the ancient Greeks, including skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and circus performance skills.
In ancient times the term implied exercise taken by men in a gymnasium, a venue for intellectual and physical education.
