I plan to stay as strong, healthy and capable as possible for as long as possible
I signed up for gymnastics training when I was three-years-old, and I just loved this type of athletic activity. As the years went by, I continued to look forward to spending time at the gym. I devoted as many hours there as I could. I kept taking organized gymnastic classes, competed on a team and followed a strenuous workout program throughout high school and college. As an adult, I continue to keep fit through gymnastic training. I workout everyday and spend most of my time working on drills and exercises targeted at improving and achieving gymnastic skills. I enjoy this type of training and hope to pursue further accomplishments and increase my level of athletic fitness. I also appreciated the benefits from improving strength and muscle tone as well as achieving greater stamina. I always get my heart rate up and get myself out of breath. I’m soaked in sweat by the end of the workout, thoroughly exhausted and sometimes end up rather sore. I usually push myself a bit too hard. Now that I no longer have the advantage of youth, I find it necessary to work harder and longer to maintain flexibility. I concentrate a lot more time on the warm up and stretching sections of the workout than I used to. I am careful about dedicating the last fifteen minutes to a proper cool down. I won’t always be able to show off back handsprings, walkovers, handstands, aerial cartwheels and back tucks and will need to find new ways to keep in shape. I plan to stay as strong, healthy and capable as possible for as long as possible. I love my training sessions and am proud of my achievements.
