    Gymnastics Isn'T Just A Sport.Its A Passion.

    I first started gymnastics when I was 6 years old. I only did one season. I then did other sports like softball, track, and basketball. Summer of 2012, I started gymnastics again. I was 11 years old. I was out of shape for gymnastics so I did lots of conditioning at home. When I...

    I really want to know how to do a backflip

    and a cartwheel! It is amazing that gymnasts can do it all the time! I am very fascinated by gymnasts due to their flexibility and power!

    Miss It

    I miss gymnastics too@ I've been tumbling since I was eight years old. Right now I just plain can't afford, don't have time in between college and work, and there are no gyms near me. I still love it and without it I feel incomplete, like a part of me is missing. I'll get back to...

    I Love Gymnastics

    I am old enough that I watched Nadia on TV during the Olympics. This turned me on to gymnastics which I did for a number of years. I loved tumbling and was OK on beam but had no real interest in bars or vault. Over the years, I've been a fan of Kim Zmeskal and Dominique Dawes...

    Since I Was 7

    I started doing gymnastics since I was 7 years old. I would watch on it on tv and begged my parents to let me do it. They would always say "no it's not safe." "It's too dangerous." However, after awhile they finally let me do it. I fell in love with the beam the first time I was...

    I have been doing gymnastics

    for 12 years, and I can honestly say that it is one of the scariest, most dangerous, and toughest sports I can think of. I wouldn't trade my gymnastics life for the world.

    A Most Impressive Gymnast

    Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin. Great gymnasts. Wonderful routines. But, it is Oksana Chusovitina who impressed me the most. She's someone I have watched compete for almost a decade which is insane given that most gymnasts if they don't qualify for top 6 in an Olympic...

    It still ****** me off

    that there are some people who don't think it's a 'real 'sport. Those people (mainly guys, muscle jocks and manly macho idiots actually) should take a very long fall onto a very hard balance beam between the legs. >:(

    I have allways loved gymnastics.

    Since I even could walk I jumped arround and tryed some saltosand all those other things. But yeh I am trans (MtoF) I allways tried to act like a boy, and boys in my town don't do any gymnastics. They think it's for girls. So I never did, since I came out 2 years ago (on my 19th...

    Gymnastics, cheer and parkour are totally

    awesome. Gymnastics is what I'm best at, though. I've been taking it for 1 and a half years now, and it just keeps getting more fun. before the summer I had just learned how to do a tempo and a standing back tuck but I haven't had access to our squishy floor so I can't practise...

    I think gymnastics is awesome.

    Last summer I worked out a lot with my ex-girlfriend. We did a lot of gymnastics stuff in her backyard on the trampoline. We both wore a leotard, which was pretty weird to wear in the first place. But the more I wore a leotard, the more I was going to love it. You can’t get...

    I love doing gymnastics in public places,

    like the mall or downtown, where older guys stop and stare at my splits or backbends. Some times they take me to a back alley and ask to see more. I DO NOT MEAN NUDITY! Just more gymnastics. Makes me feel good!
