I have been visiting other gyms in the past few months and the other day I visited one with an excellent reputation (great coaches, high scores, etc.), but there was so much chalk dust hanging in the air that it looked like a pool hall/bar filled with cigarette smoke. What are the dangers to the girls inhaling the dust (magnesium carbonate)? Or of eye irritants? Thanks for the info, as I'm a new Proud Parent of a young Gymnast that LOVES the sport!
