Gifts! Gymnastics Books for gymnasts and coaches!

Nice gifts for gymnasts and gymnastics coaches… Gymnastics Books.

Gymnastics Journal: My Goals, My Scores, My Dreams
The gymnast will write all about their gymnastics events, competitions, and goals in this amazing journal and save the memories forever. This is the only gymnastics journal your gymnast will need the entire gymnastic season. There are spaces for gymnastics competition scores, event goals, future goals, and much more. The gymnast will be encouraged to set goals for the near and distant future. Many gymnasts do not set goals until a coach or parent asks about goals. Gymnasts often need a simplified way of setting goals with a clear pattern of goal setting, goal achieving, exceeding the goals, and setting new ones. The gymnast using this gymnastics journal will see that many goals can be set and achieved in each gymnastics season. Every gymnast is capable of reaching success and every gymnast defines success differently. In this gymnastics journal the gymnast will be able to track their progress and goals from month to month and year to year. Keeping a gymnastics journal is a great way to set goals and preserve memories.

Gymnastics Skills, Drills, Conditioning in NJ

Gymnastics Training: Skills, Drills, Conditioning…
It’s that time of year… Gymnasts must learn new skills for next season. Are they strong enough? Flexible enough? Fast enough? And is your gymnast learning the correct technique through drills and proper conditioning?
Before your gymnast gets frustrated, develops fears and bad habits, bring them to me… USAG Level 5-Elite, USAIGC, JOGA, High School, College…
Is your gymnast injured? I can help with that. She will NEED specific training to return to competition shape. Besides being a highly experienced gymnastics coach, I am a CSCS, sports performance coach. You can google that to see what it means. There are very few high level gymnastics coaches who also have the CSCS certification.
