Aerobic Gymnastics requires the ability to perform continuous complex and high intensity movement patterns to music, which originates from traditional aerobic. Aerobic gymnasts can compete in following classes:
- Individual Men’s, Individual Women’s, Mixed Pairs, Trio, Group (of 5 gymnasts)
- Aerobic Step (8 gymnasts)
- Aerobic Dance (8 gymnasts)
The performance area for single events is 7m x 7m and the performance area for duo, trio and groups is 10m x 10m. The competition area is surrounded by a black delimitation strip.
The border is horizontal, even and at the same height
as the performance area. It is 100cm in area. The safety zone is also 100cm.
Trampoline gymnastics has three apparatus:
- Individual trampoline (TRP) and synchronised trampoline (SYN)
- Double-mini trampoline (DMT)
- Tumbling (TUM)
Section 2.5 (pages 101 to 122) of the document FIG Apparatus Norms 2015 provides the technical information for each apparatus. These norms include safety padding, platforms (end decks) and mats.
Acrobatic gymnastics has the same performance area as Women’s Rhythmic Gymnastics.
