    Adult gymnastics in Perth

    Hi guys, does anyone know a gym in Perth, Western Australia that conducts adult classes? My previous gym stopped adult classes due to a lack of adults in the class :(. I should be starting my studies there next year and I've been training twice a week here in Singapore so I'm desperate to...

    Today was good fun! I'm starting to train twice a week, on the advice of my main coach there. And I have so many lessons to make up anyway. My coach today was a former Chinese Olympian and she's really good! She actually managed to get me to overcome my fear of a front tuck on a tramp! When I...

    It happened to all the adults in my class, including me! The first time I had to do a cartwheel off a floor beam, I couldn't do it at all!!! Even now, I can cartwheel better on the floor than on the beam haha. The adage in gymnastics is true - Just don't think about it, JUST DO IT! :)

    I know, right? The last few times I did a correct one, I actually felt weightless when my legs were in the air so I have to strive to replicate that feeling over and over again! :) Well done on yours too!!!

    I'm getting closer to doing good cartwheels now! It was more upright now! Strangely enough, it was the advice of one of my classmates that helped me. My previous problem was that I was lunging far forward enough. Once I did (took a larger step than normal), my hands went down quite automatically...

    And something my coach constantly says during class when he has me in handstand even though I can't hold it by myself yet. I kick up into it and he holds my legs then he legs go and only brings it back when I go off. Hahaha. And all the time he's like, "Squeeze your tummy! Squeeze your tummy!"...

    I managed to do one glide swing where I could pike back when I swung back! My legs normally collapse into a tuck when I swing back but just that once, I managed to keep it relatively in pike. ;) I still can't get up to front support with that drill where you swing with straight arms on the low...

    Coach had me on bars this week because I told him I wanted to get my kip before the end of the year when I leave the gym :(. He had me swing from a block below and up...it's apparently to train the most difficult part of the kip, which is the part where the gymnasts folds the legs in and pushes...

    Just Curious...

    My coach is Chinese/Taiwanese so they emphasize alot on basics here. However, you can tell the coach what you want to achieve and he'll figure out a way for you. I've already learnt more body awareness than from my classes back in Australia, where the situation's similar to yours. They had me...

    Have not been to class in two weeks because of my graduation ceremony. Strangely enough, this morning during class when we were told to get into a bridge. I got up into it and managed to start rocking back and forth. Previously, I had trouble staying in it and today I could actually straighten...

    Managed to sprain my ankle in the gym whilst helping move those blocks around sigh. My classmate felt really bad for causing it though heh. I've been struggling with having the cartwheel upright for a long time now. Does anyone have tips? My legs always end up kicking sideways. :(

    What would be the difficulty value for this routine?

    Hi guys, I know there are coaches in this thread and so I was wondering about the difficulty value of this routine. Could someone please provide the difficulty value of each skill (the letter A-G), the connection values (having alot of problems with those) and the total D score? Thank you! Here...

    Cool! :) Perhaps keep your upper body flexibility up and conditioning in the meantime!

    This week I accomplished...2010 version

    Man, you guys are so advanced I envy you! My only obvious improvement is that I am able to kick up into a straight handstand against a wall and hold it during conditioning. On the floor, I can do it but I come down relatively quickly :P. Did front handsprings on a block on the tramp onto a mat...

    I could kick up into a handstand against a wedge finally alone! :) Also started learning a backward roll down a wedge! I have a new coach now because the old coach's got a new job and she couldn't do a backward roll well so she never taught us. :P Also did a back hip circle with help! :) I'm...
