“Nasty Gym Sticks”

published 29/08/2001

..

..

...not really nasty, but it's what my Nanna used to say when I turned up happy but exhausted at her house on a Saturday afternoon after 6 hours in the gym. I went to my first gymnastics class when I was 4 years old, and took part in my first competition at age 6. I was hooked and even though I...

the only UK site I found

main page is dull

Did you know that you cannot buy leotards in a sport shop?! I have hunted and hunted for a site and have finally found Milano.co.uk They have a very wide range of leotards and although they may seem expensive, if you have a child doing gymnastics you will know that it involve expense and the...

The feeling of competing!

gruelling hours, injuries...

At the age of four I started gymnastics and soon became very good. At it at the age of 8 I was club champion and was the Scottish under nines champion. I felt proud of what I had done. I moved house however when I was 10 and joined a new club who were much stricter and more disciplined. The...

“Fancy A Tumble”

published 01/10/2000

fitness, beautiful to watch

injuries

Gymnastics has been part of my life since 1976, where I watched the wonderful routines of Nadia Comaneci, the Romanian who score seven perfect tens during the Montreal Olympics. I was 6 years old. I started doing gymnastics myself and only gave up training, once I had children of my own. Now my...

“not just for the girls!”

published 28/08/2000

amazing to watch

Gymnastics is a very disciplined sport and takes a lot of hard work and training (just as other sports do). We have a good team going to the Olympics including Anneker Reeder, Lisa Mason, Emma Williams, Sharna Murray and Craig Heap. But it is not just for the 'professionals'. There are lots of...

“yes you can do it too”

published 15/08/2000

tones and conditions your bits

it can be hard work-but you notice the difference ...

If you want to tone up without jumping up and down with the 'lycra brigade' then perhaps you should try gymnastics. Most decent gym clubs have adult sessions. I go to my local gym and I love it. I am a bit overweight and not very fit, yet I can still do a cartwheel and a forward roll. Gymnastics...

“The fuss about gymnastics”

published 21/12/2008

keeps you fit and healthy

can be painful at times!

So what is the big deal with gymnastics?! I have been a gymnast since I was 4 years old and it is the best sport I have tried. It keeps you supple and slim as well as being one of the most impressive and graceful sports to watch. As well as the advantages of keeping you fit and healthy as a child...

Leotards are difficult to track down in shops - therefore there are may websites to choose from! Milano, Zone, A star (there are also various american websites for leotards). My daughter is currently a county and regional squad gymnast (therefore she needs many leotards) - the milano website is partically useful to see all the available leotards. The leotard (or other gymnastic items) are easily purchased and are posted within a few days.

Gymnastics is a very good sport.It enables you to have a good phisque and a strong body.Usually if your aiming to become a elite gymnast, its best to train 5-6 days a week.It your just planning to do it for leisure 1-2 times a week is good enough.There are many clubs in the UK and there should be one in your city or town.It great to get children involved as it is a fun and exciting way to keep fit and healthy.

Strength, Grace, Balance, Agillity, Flexibillity.

Hard Work, Takes Time, Lots of strength needed.

The TV was on, noise was blasting out of it and girls in leotards were twisting and tumbling, it was something that I had never come across before and it was so graceful and unique and energetic. It was Gymnastics. The 2004 Olympics was my introduction to Gymnastics, I was amazed that risk taking...

fitness, enjoyment, amazing

hard work!

i would recomend gymnastics as a sport to take up at any age because its fun and it helps you to get fit at the same time although if you want to reach olympic standard it's best to start at the earliest age possible! it's very enjoyable to see the younger gymnasts progress so quickly and learn...

“Ruined by 16”

published 22/09/2000

Is it just me or does anybody else disagree with gymnastics? I saw a few minutes of the Olympics yesterday and all the girls competing and winning the medals must be about 13 years old. To me that don’t seem right. I bet they got forced into it at a very young age, have had no kind of life...

“Andreea Raducan”

published 29/09/2000

How sad that Andreea Raducan of Romania was disqualified for taking a cold cure that happened to contain a banned substance. Whilst the team doctor should have known better, a gymnast, who reportedly tested clear of any banned substances after the competition only two days before,was hardly...
