I wouldn't bother with private lessons. They are very expensive (often $40-$60 per hour) and you are in a very small class with only 4 gymnasts so you are probably getting just as much from these classes as you would in a private and you are only paying a fraction of the cost. At first it will be difficult to learn all the new skills and terminology but you will amazed at how fast you[ Read More... ]

Yeah for vault we just went straight to the actual vault. That was really scary for me haha. We were doing straddle jumps and I actually just landed in a split on the vault once.. the other coaches that were watching started laughing and said, "Now that's a gymnast!" I thought it was funny. Yeah I have no ab muscles at all.. so I guess I need to fix that. Yeah I've been doing leg lifts and I[ Read More... ]

Hi Laura, welcome! :D Here's the thread on the private lessons cost: http://www.gymchat.com/messageboards/viewtopic.php?t=203 For vault, maybe by "hands first" your coach means you're not hollow and like are going with your knees or legs or stomach first towards the vault. Also, ask her if the vault board isn't too close to the vault for your height and for your jump and speed - they all[ Read More... ]

Hey, welcome to gymchat! And gymnastics! Gymnastics is really lots of fun! :D For pullovers: don't worry about your height being an issue!

Vault is extremely annoying. She kept saying HANDS FIRST and I have no idea what that[ Read More... ]
