The gymnastics in Greek antiquity aimed to prepare the athlete for the struggle, but also to achieve a fuller psychosomatic improvement, the general promotion of the individual.
The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle argued that the trainer should theoretically know the exercises, be able to perform them and know their results. Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates referred to the healthy purpose of gymnastics precisely defining the limits of gymnastics and medicine, while the ancient Greek philosopher Plato referred to exercises related to today's "free exercises" or "flexibility exercises".
