Tradeshows and conferences keep us busy as we share great deals and information on products. We delight in having face to face time with hard working professionals from gyms around the nation.
In addition to the tradeshow floor, you’ll find Tumbl Trak Staff and Ambassadors in the classroom as well! This year you can catch several presentations at Regional and National Congresses that highlight some great teaching tips, creative ways to teach progressions and games out the wazoo!
One of our newest presentations is titled Fun AND Effective, with the goal of offering a few fun ways to teach great habits and get results. The live version of the presentation packs more of a punch, but, here’s a downloadable link to the Powerpoint we’ve shared with folks who attend our presentations. You’ll find lots of videos and some tid-bits of useful information. Enjoy!

In all my years with Tumbl Trak I have had opportunities that have changed my life. I have learned to be a better coach, a better person. I have had moments of awe, been starstruck, and really come to love this sport from the inside out!
My most recent experience, interviewing Houry Gebeshian, is one that I will cherish because it wrapped all these experiences into one. Here’s some of what I learned about this gracious, talented, dedicated young woman that changed my outlook on our sport forever.
As the Olympics are fast approaching, gymnastics enthusiasts are following the Road to Rio which includes many events that will decide what athletes will compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. The process of qualification can be a bit overwhelming to understand. Here’s a useful diagram that shows how the athletes make it to the Olympics:
The USA athletes have been incredibly successful at recent events and are Olympic medal contenders for sure! But, take a look at this list of International athletes who should be on your watch list.
There are no limits to what some parents will do for their children. When it comes to our kids’ good health and fitness, the choices come easy as we schedule practices, competitions, carpools and plan healthy meals. We are committed parents of athletes cheering them on at the gym and at home. We are constantly stepping over balance beams and inclines in our living room.
But, for busy moms and dads, finding time to take care of our own health and fitness is not as easy.
How about using that balance beam in the living room to help you meet some of YOUR fitness goals? Tumbl Trak equipment is not just for kids! I’m not suggesting you set your sights on a back handspring on that beam - but what about some increased flexibility, or toning in your core?
