    Gymnastics and Easter

    I don't think that you not having ANY chocolate was a good thing. If you like chocolate than cutting out on it completely seems crazy. It may just be candy now but it could get worse. My friend's ballet teacher said that she put on too much weight after Christmas and my friend cut out lots of...

    My weight and my coach.

    Yeah i'm pretty much naturally flexable the only thing I had to work at was straddle splits getting on the floor was a pain it took like 3 weeks. I have a reaaly vast range of back flexability it kinda cool.

    Velvet VRS. Other fabric leos

    I don't like velvet because I think there too hot. My sister likes them and has several of the velvet leos. I like the really shiny lycra leos. There thinner I think they look better with images like flowers and stuff.

    Well Hello! I take gymnastics to and the class i'm in has no one over the age of 12 in it but me! I'm 15, but I do fine. Does your gym or a local gym have adult classes.

    A better cast

    Does your gym have a bar over a pit. If so at my gym we practice them over the pit to achive hight and tightness. I can cast to a handstand most times this way (Over the pit). How can anyone be scared to fall into a hole full of foam cubes.
