    For Parents Plantar Fasciitis

    My daughter had this as well. I bought her The X Brace from Amazon for around $25.00. I also bought her an inexpensive night splint. She is pain free now.

    My daughter has just been diagnosed with this. The only time she has any pain is when she is tumbling and running. She has been out of the gym for the past 3 weeks and is going crazy without doing gymnastics. Have any of you ever had experience with this? How long does is usually take to heal...

    Gym in San Diego

    Thank you very much Bog. I will contact them. My daughter pretty much lives in the gym so a week without training would be very hard for her.

    Gym in San Diego

    My daughter and I will be in San Diego for 8-10 days for the YMCA Nationals. This is a long time for her to be away from the gym. Can anyone recommend a gym in the area for her to work out at?

    anyone with a spare money tree?

    Fundraise on your own. If you know any area business owners ask them to sponsor your daughter. Organize a car wash and/or bottle drive. My daughter really wants to go to nationals in San Diego next summer so we have already started fundraising now. Good luck.

    make or buy a beam???

    My husband made a beam for my daughter. He used a 4x4 that is 8ft long. We put carpet padding on it and then wrapped it in microsuede. It is about 8 inches off the ground. She loves it and says it feels just like the ones she uses at the gym. Total cost was about $40.00 a a few hours of labor.

    For Parents Very sad girl...any advice?

    When I picked my daughter up from practice Monday night she was very quiet...very unlike her. When we got in the car I asked her how practice was and she burst into tears. Her favorite coach is leaving the gym next week. She just finished college and found a teaching job a few hours away. My...

    YMCA vs USAG??

    We live in Maine and there isn't High School gymnastics anymore. The focus in High School has gone to cheering. My daughter dreams of the olympics but I am know that is not going to happen. I think if she stays with gymnastics which I think she will it could be a college scholarship someday. She...

    YMCA vs USAG??

    As I stated previously my daughter competes in the YMCA league in Maine. What is the differance between YMCA and USAG? I believe we do the same routines. Is there an advantage competing in USAG?
