Fun is the essential element. If you are not having fun doing something, you should really consider if you wish to keep doing it. Gymnastics is wonderful for both mind and body – the feeling of soaring in the air, the rush of performing a complex routine well, the exhilaration of body control enabled by practice. There are thousands of good feelings generated by body movement and exercise. If “fun” is part of the process, it makes it even better! Have fun moving your body. Have fun advancing your skills. Have fun with your teammates. Have fun and you will do well.
