I am thrilled to announce that Tumbl Trak has once again teamed up with Inside Gymnastics to present the 2nd annual GymConUSA Gymnastics Conference. This event is geared towards gym owners and coaches who are interested in expanding their knowledge, meeting new people and most of all...having FUN!!!
Last year's conference attendees said they thoroughly enjoyed the conference, appreciated the take-aways and had a blast in Vegas! We hope you will join us this year. Visit www.gymconusa.com for more information. Early bird registration ends March 17th, so don't delay!
Versatile, portable and worth every penny...especially when it's on SALE!
An inexpensive training aid to better develop back extension rolls and so much more!
The Jr. Bar Pro is a great bar for recreational up to Level 5 gymnastics or for home use.
Communities nationwide have begun to take a more proactive approach to fighting the nation’s childhood obesity epidemic. Healthy Kids Festivals, Family Fun Runs, and Kids' Fitness programs are popular events for families to learn about what resources are available to support a kid’s healthy lifestyle.
For many communities, the catalyst for inspiration begins with the heart of passionate people, like Bart Conner and Nadia Comaneci in Oklahoma. Over 10,000 kids came to the Bart and Nadia Sport Experience this past February to try their hand at kayaking, tennis, slacklining, hockey, basketball and of course, gymnastics. FREE.
Another great nationwide push for kids activity is the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, Saturday, April 26, 2014. Over 1,500 Y’s across the country are taking part in Healthy Kids Day, holding free community events that are open to all kids and families and filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities. Build A Happier, Healthier Kid based on the incredible potential inside your child. Find a YMCA Kids Day event near you at: http://www.ymca.net/healthy-kids-day/
A local example of communities coming together to promote kid’s fitness is the Beaverton Activity Center just down the road from Tumbl Trak Headquarters. The Activity Center began in July of 2011, when more than forty people gathered to discuss the possibility of re-purposing the old school, built in 1936. Declining K-12 student enrollment forced a consolidation of school buildings rendering this building underutilized and available for alternative community functions. The school is currently owned by the Beaverton Rural School District. It is located on a major highway in the heart of Beaverton, within easy walking distance of existing schools and the downtown business area. The volunteers toured the old school and began to discuss and envision the many possibilities the building held. The unanimous consensus was to pursue the goal of turning the building into an Activity Center for all ages.
The following fall, the BAC opened with seven classes with 58 registrants. Now, in 2014, programming has increased to fourteen classes with over 130 registrants. There is a pre-school, the Beaverton branch of the Gladwin County Library and Beaverton historical museum, a coffee shop, a Mid-Michigan physical therapy and rehab facility, and a fitness center. Tumbl Trak employee, Tammy Berry, has been teaching Beginning Tumbling two nights a week since January of 2013, and currently has a waiting list to attend her classes.
Ask yourselves how you can help with an existing healthy kids program, or, perhaps you can be the champion in your community that inspires children to get moving and love it!
