They can be really simple things like being close to your teammates, or a certain skill, or going to meets, or a certain meet, having no time for friends outside of gym....or anything really. So reply....

My top 3 favorite things about gym:
1) Getting stronger and feeling that strength, especially on bars
2) Pulling off a "perfect" tumbling pass or skill on beam - when your feet just land exactly right on the beam and you do your finish/pose feeling like a million dollars.
3) Fast, high tumbling that just clicks and sends me flying.

My 3 least favorite things about gym:
1) Leg lifts
2) Being called fat by 4th graders
3) Getting made fun of for doing handstands and cartwheels in the hallway.

dont' worry, gymfan4ever95, i felt the exact same way because i broke my ankle doing a full and didnt work them for a year, then started working them again and kept landing short and hurting my other ankle, but then it clicked, and i competed it for the first time last week and won the meet :)
