Fun

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.

 
 
 

Discipline

If you chose to learn gymnastics, you confront real danger.  Tackling feats without appropriate control of your body can result in injury: broken bones or other consequences.  Discipline is essential and the key to being controlled.  The GU instructors are well trained and careful with their gymnasts; they never encourage a gymnast to go beyond a skill set they have not yet been trained in.  They advance gymnasts only when they are ready and not before.  Watching the results: upper level gymnasts perform amazing feats of agility and walk away unhurt and happy is a testament to discipline of mind and body that comes from long practice – the discipline required to be great.

Competition

Making the team is a great feeling and participating in formal competition is a wonderful experience.  Practice pays off when you reach the “medal” stand and are recognized for achievement.  In competition you get many rewards: courage to perform in front of judges and an audience, exhilaration when rewarded with medals and applause, contentment when knowing you did your best.  A hard lesson can also happen: failure.  Failure is tough to experience but can often teach better than success.  As many champions know, it is the ability to get up and continue after failing that makes them stronger and better for the next time.  Additional advice to parents: if your gymnast participates in competition and comes in last place, tell him this: “don’t worry about finishing last; you are better than all of the others who didn’t dare compete at all and sat on the sidelines… trying is far better than not trying at all" (then treat him to a healthy snack to make them feel better).

 
 
 

Safety

Throughout 2020, Gymnastics Unlimited has taken steps to keep gymnasts, parents and staff safe.  In addition to following CDC Guidelines for face covering and social distancing, Gymnastics Unlimited installed gym cameras so that spectators can watch safely outside of the gym.

For hosted meets, Gymnastics Unlimited live-streamed events so that friends and family members could share the excitement and accomplishments, even though they could not be in-person.
