    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 love gymnastics! I haven't taken any lessons

    at all, but I really want to learn some cool tricks. I workout at home. First I warm up. Then I do handstands by the wall and stuff. I enjoy trying new tricks so much, that I already know how to do front kickovers, backbends, elbow stands. I really want to learn the back...

    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. >:(

    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 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!

    My Sister, Not Me

    This summer, during the Olympics, my sister and I were mesmerized with all of those gymnasts running around doing amazing things with their bodies. It was the coolest thing to watch them do that, and knowing they worked so hard to get there. My sister and I woke up every morning...

    Love It.....

    I did gymnastics at an elite level when young and was obsessed. Even now, years later, I am still obsessed. I watch all the televised gymnastic events and wish the sport had more recognition. My favourite at the moment is the russian gymnast, Aliya Mustafina. I think she is...

    I Wish I Could Still Do Gymnastics.

    I started gymnastics when I was 9 and I fell in love with the sport, I never wanted to quit. Well when I tore everything in my ankle I had to make a choice, gymnastics or school cheerleading. Since I had already started my cheerleading season, my choice was clear to me, I had to...

    I've taken gymnastics lessons since I was at least three. Later in 2004 my mom actually started her own gym. I took classes there too, and then a handfull of me and a bunch of other 6 yearolds joined the first team that the gym had! I'm so proud of my mom for starting this gym on...

    The Graceful Yet Fierce Sport

    The list of reasons why I love my sport is very, very long. I love gymnastics because it makes me feel special. When Iโ€™m on the floor all alone, itโ€™s only about me and my body. I feel free, like Iโ€™m on top of the world flipping, and flying, and twisting through the air...

    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...

    One of the reasons why I love this gymnastics

    gym that I go to, it has adult gymnastics, we have a few women that just can't let go of this life style, so this one lady really got it started, the class is really small only like 7 women do it, I quit doing gymnastics last year because I got pregnant, but I decided to try it...

    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 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!

    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...
