So you're about 5.15 feet...(1 meter = 3.2808399 feet) It's easier to do the skills if you're in shape, but it's not like you have to be skinny or super skinny. Muscle is good, you can build some more muscle before your first gymnastics class, and you can also build more muscle there too! Have fun! When are you going to start?

The coaches usually aren't like that in rec classes, to bother the gymnasts about their weight, the media about the weight issue bothering was about higher level competitive gymnastics / elite gymnastics.
