    I thought it would be fun to start a thread on what your coaches remind you to do most often.

    So, list the top three things that your coaches remind you to do during gymnastics training.

    Mine are
    1. Point your toes
    2. Slow down/ don't rush
    3. Smile

    1. Slow down/stop rushing
    2. Have some confidence in yourself
    3. Get your feet together in your roundoff; you're not a sumo wrestler

    I get that all the time too! Coach keeps telling me that, then in PE at school we were doing the pushup test and the teacher started yelling at me to breathe, I almost messed up because I was trying so hard not to laugh!

    Interesting thread :)
    Here's my coaches famous three:
    1. SQUEEZE!!
    2. Point your toes
    3. "I have a goal for you..." (My coach seems to be very goal oriented- every time we get a skill, she is right there with something that she wants us to aim for next!)
