The indoor activity combines traditional gymnastics and acrobatic tricks, with kicks and leaps inspired by martial arts and stunts.
British Gymnastics has developed the new club-based activity in-light of the increased popularity of adrenaline fuelled freestyle sports, providing participants with the opportunity to express themselves through an incredible range of tricks and movements in a safe environment.
The governing body has also partnered with Continental Sport to design a range of bespoke freestyle-specific equipment which can be used during sessions by qualified FreeG coaches across the country.
David Marshall, head of development at British Gymnastics, said: “With the increasing appeal of freestyle sports in the UK we see FreeG as an opportunity for budding freestylers to learn a range of dynamic and exciting tricks in a safe environment.
“We hope the launch of FreeG will encourage those who have never taken part in gymnastics to go to a BG affiliated club or leisure centre offering FreeG and give this exciting new style of gymnastics a go.”
Included as part of a wider range of participation opportunities offered by BG affiliated clubs, FreeG is set to get participants moving in ways they never thought possible, getting their hearts racing and developing a heightened sense of spatial awareness that can be put to use in a variety of other sports.
