It is just an extension of physical fitness. The Ancient Greeks liked to keep fit and maintained a Gymnasium in all cities for that purpose. A Gymnasium was simply a large courtyard for jumping and running. Another development led to competition between city states with the winner being granted privileges within his community. Later, as the Greeks had to defend themselves against military aggressors, these courtyards were turned into areas for military training where individual soldiers fought against each other to perfect warlike practices.

Gymnastics as a sport didn't really have one "big bang" moment when it all began.

The actual word "gymnastics" is derived from the ancient Greek word "gymnos," which means "nude." This is appropriate as the Greeks did gymnastics in the nude in a building designed for it, complete with baths and changing rooms. The Romans kept the tradition of the Greeks going, adding the use of a wooden horse to running, jumping, weightlifting, throwing, wrestling and swimming. The Romans, however, used gymnastics as training for army troops.
