Artistic gymnastics Rhythmic gymnastics
The Saint-Claude gym is a venue which is perfectly adapted to male artistic gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics. The gym is calm, spacious and with plenty of light. Athletes can train individually there or in a team thanks to its relaxation areas and a video room which allows one to study and improve on moves and combinations. Video is a very useful tool in gymnastics and delegations may have it set up with expert help from our partner: The Franche-comté University. One may get to the centre by bus, and is ideally situated at a stone’s throw away from the heart of the town, hotels and a very dynamic and welcoming Besançon hub. One may also easily drive to the gym and park in its safe and free car park. At less than a ten minute drive from the health and care services provided by the university hospital, this gym is the ideal getaway for a calm place to alternate between sessions involving concentration and intensity with relaxation and rest. This training centre is one of 7 centres in the Besançon Metropole which have been chosen for Paris 2024 and will therefore have all the necessary services to cater for athletes as well as a personalized service: transport, translation services, etc. The Optimal sports performance centre (COPS), situated on the university campus is equipped with Hypoxia and Cryotherapy treatments as well as a Hyperbaric Chamber. This is a unique centre open to athletes training in Besançon.
The centre was created specifically for male artistic gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics.
It is used on a daily basis by the Saint Claude gym club who own the building. It is known all over France for its high quality training.
The gym has all the necessary equipment in enough quantities to satisfy the needs of any delegation needing to prepare for competitions.
Video may also be used here, with the help of our university partner in order to analyse movements.
The Saint Claude gym is well known on a national level for its high-level training. Various teams come regularly to prepare for international events, such as the Romanian team for example.
