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[ 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... ]

Not spotting and going with the drills skills only is like an excuse for gymnastics clubs to not hire more capable coaches that are experienced in spotting and technique and also are strong enough to do it. It's easier to find coaches if those don't add in as prerequisites for at least some of the coaches, and also to pay them less.

So what did you guys think about the first day of compeition women's gymnastics coverage? The coverage on Nastia Liukin in the papers was a bit too dramatic - with more practice after her ankle injury she could be on top - her bars routine is the best in the world right now - an event she could practice more of while she was still not landing/tumbling on her ankle. She's looking good. Good[ Read More... ]

Shawn Johnson in the lead so far by 4.3 after 2 rotations of scores counted (beam and floor for her), from quick hits: Nastia Liukin does a great bars routine and lands her dismount.
