Hopefully they will post the rest.... geez I can't imagine spending 30 grand a year on gymnastic training. Is that realistic for elite training?

*** actually I asked if she was going to post the rest & she said she would very soon...

Much of the expenses for elites come in travel. I think my pre elites and elite kids pay around 11k a year for training.

It is a good movie so far - very "made for TV" with all of the drama.... & maybe this was how things were 10/15 yrs ago - I really don't know, but based on this I can see how elite training could get a bad rap... but it seems as if elite gymnastics is taking a more positive turn these days (if this is indeed how harsh it was). Training only 25 hours weekly, attending school, positive reinforcement training, no drugs or severe dieting & still competing harder tricks AND winning gold.

It is somewhat like the Parkettes documentary. Full of moments of truth, but certainly manipulated to increase viewer numbers and the shock/horror feelings that semi abusive coaches bring out is in gym moms.

Enjoy

hope they post it soon... lol, there must be about 3 maybe 4 parts left.

"that Tina is such a cow"

love the intro to the crazy gym moms lol... actually that stuff DOES still happen. One of our moms of a L9 got assaulted in the parking lot one day by a "crazed" mother (her dd was L8 at the time) because her dd got a trick before crazy mom's dd did.
