Who invented Gymnastics?

The past of gymnastics started in ancient Greece. Its real discoverer is a secret, but it was very common among Greeks. However, it was the effort of Friedrich Jahn in the early 1800s, which resulted in the modern sport. The name ‘gymnastic’ is gained from the Greek word, ‘gymnazein’ that intends to work out without clothing.
