Hey guys, i want to be a competitive gymnast. I started when i was 22, but i do sports since i was 16 years old.
I dont know if its possible, heard many opinions about that.
What should i do in order to use my time the best way i could?
I Take around 3-4 gymnastics classes per week, and 2-3 strength sessions.
Would i be able to reach lvl 10? And if so, would it be possible to get beyond that? I do have time, and i try to make more time for training in every way possible. Im very commited and very consistent about it.
And anyway, is there any adult gymnastics competitions that i can find outside of my country? Because we dont have one here unfortunately

I don’t know how it works where you live. But for us (Australia), yes, it’s absolutely possible. There a no age limits on competitions, you can compete at any age at any level. As long as you don’t mind training and competing with kids and you find a gym who is happy with that too.

And is it possible to compete in a different country?
And what about getting to lvl 10 in my age, is it possible to get to to it and beyond?

IDK if you're looking in the US where I am, because "outside my country" is a big world, no matter where you live.
Here in the US, you would be affiliated with a gym. Your USAG membership has the gym right on it and I don't think you can sign up without one. My guess is that it has to do with insurance/liability/safety/where do we send the lawyers etc.
Good luck!
