Gym-Thing Movement Equipment Testimonials

“I just wanted you to know how much my students love the Gerstung Educational Gymnastics equipment. I have been teaching in Madison, WI for over 30 years and have developed a wonderful curriculum that allows all children to feel successful, strong and capable in the area of gymnastics. I use the equipment to teach the concepts of rotation, balance, traveling (dynamic balancing) and vaulting. Using this equipment with an educational, versus traditional gymnastics model allows for students to be creative, develop confidence and strength in new ways. We also talk alot about "acquired courage" and how we can get brave by trying many different things many different ways.  Thank you for the opportunity to share with you how much we love Gerstung!  If you ever need a recommendation or if other schools considering the use of your equipment want to see kids in action on the equipment, let us know!”

“There are many words tossed around in the world of Movement Education, however the two words that truly represent authentic Inclusive Movement Education are Universal Design.  The Gerstung International System represents the highest level of Universal Design. Simply put, it allows all movers to be challenged, contribute, self design, team build, and develop executive functions.”

“Our school district has been purchasing equipment from Gerstung for the past 10 years.  We have been able to increase our educational gymnastics equipment over the years; using grant money, PTA/PTO funds and budgeting appropriately.  The success of the unit in our elementary and middle school physical education programs has encouraged us to continue to expand the program while we engage our students in meaningful activity.  Our students really love the equipment!”

"We had a wonderful time learning from you. Your depth of knowledge and experience with not only the WHITTLE GYM but also with Movement Education was tremendous. The teachers really appreciated the perspective and history that you included on physical education. The aspect of building “confident learners” through movement based education is one we all strongly embrace."

"I have had the privilege of working with Siegfried Gerstung for over 10 years.  I consider Siegfried a world leader in the field of Movement Education.  His knowledge of developing the child through movement is unparalleled, and his innovative equipment designs at Gerstung International have proved invaluable in our programs.  He’s someone I hold in high regard, and crave his insights on teaching through movement."
