    WAG Gym Insurance and Adult Gymnastics

    Hi everyone, I'm part of an adult team that competes NAIGC. We aren't college--we're associated with a local club and mostly in our 30s and 40s. Our gym recently notified us that they may be losing their insurance for their adult classes, which means both the adult class and our adult team...

    WAG Adult gymnastics in the Boston area?

    I thought I'd seek advice about this as I've found out just how horrible I am at navigating American gym websites, lol. I'm coming to the US in October (as an au pair) and would love to be able to do gym in some way since I've already been on a somewhat limited schedule for the past three...

    Adult gymnastics, getting started

    I'm in my 40's, but did gymnastics as a child. At age 32/33 I was coaching and would spend some time after my last class "playing". I was able to do a front and back tuck on trampoline, round off back handspring on floor, got to a point I could do a split with my dominant leg. Nothing earth...

    New in so many ways. Adult Gymnastics ? Please Help from ALL :)

    Hello everyone. I remember growing up I always wanted to do gymnastics. I could do a mean cartwheel and roundoff but that was it just from my front yard. I remember one time I was able to do, what I learned later was a backwards walk over. I think thats the name of it. I remember the '96...
