Another thing to think about is that there are different qualities of spotting. Experience, common sense, knowledge, strength and build of the coach counts a lot. I would say even if you are a small or light or young gymnast.
I was visiting a gym today and was just watching a little bit of a class to see how that gym is and it was amazing to me that during warm up the coaches had their arms crossed standing there, occassionally giving some verbal communication like "go" or "now do this", or clapping their hands for the next gymnast to go in the line-up, etc., but didn't correct, didn't spot, while the girls were just falling all over the place - they were doing handstand to bridge, to stand up - or trying to for some of them, some wouldn't even get to a good handstand to do a bridge, some would just plop over instead of the bridge...there was really little to no coaching at all. It was amazing. And there were parents watching too. I don't get why they agree with that to have their kids in that class.
