I've wanted to tumble all my life. Starting to develop some health problems (minor at this point, but now's when to take care of them) & doc says I need to lose weight & exercise - no restrictions. I'd love to do this in ways that interest me, "normal" exercise does not. I probably could start in an adult gymnastics class, but my question is that at 30ish, 220+lbs, & unable to do things like pushups, would I be over my head to the point that I'd be better off losing some of the weight & building muscle in more conventional ways until I'm at a better starting point?
