Adult Gymnastics: Dare to Dream

One of my hopes for the blog in the new year is to bring my adult gymnastics experiences to you.I don't know where I'll be after graduation and there's a very real possibility that I won't have the time to attend or won't have a class nearby. So, I made a goal of having a floor exercise by the end of the school year. Operation back handspring has gone on for far too long! We'll see what happens.
Great Britain has done an excellent job of advertising gymnastics to all ages and all disciplines. You can find very inspiring videos on their Discover Gymnastics page. Here is the video that was made for adult gymnastics.
Gymnastics Victoria, one of the Australian gyms, shared this video of their adult gymnastics class.

As someone who started after my teenage years, I can tell you gymnastics is indeed for everyone! The people in my class range from high school kids who want to learn a back flip to parents in their 40s and 50s who want to see what their child is experiencing. Our experience range is all over the place too from people who are learning cartwheels to people relearning double backs. It's fun and you should try it too :)
