I’m so excited to announce that I launched the second season of the I Have Cool Friends podcast. It’s been such an exciting journey for me. In season one, I had the privilege of interviewing my friends who are knowledgeable experts in the gymnastics space. We shared tips and tricks, memories of the national team and international meets, as well as inspiration on how to get 1% better each day. We hit some milestones that I’m really proud of such as getting more than 120,000 downloads, getting downloads in over 100 countries, and breaking into the charts as the number 1 podcast in the college and high school category for multiple weeks and breaking into the top 100 in the All Sports category. It’s been a whirlwind, but one that I’m looking forward to continuing.

I created the Al Fong Spotting Blocks System because of the way I taught bar skills back in the early 1980’s. To spot releases like jaegers and reverse hechts, I moved my pommel horse under the uneven bars, put additional folding panel mats on top and hoisted my gymnasts onto my shoulder to flip them around to catch the bar, or threw them over the high bar.

As a child, I always had the dream of becoming a collegiate gymnast and I’m proud to say that my dream came true. I am a senior on the gymnastics team at Central Michigan University and I am so thankful to have had this opportunity. I have learned many life skills through the sport of gymnastics which have heightened since the time I became a freshman at CMU. Aside from the many benefits that come along with being a student athlete, the gymnastics team does a little something extra. We have a gymnastics school program that gives our team the opportunity to become coaches to kids around the Mount Pleasant area.
This summer, the Tumbl Trak event schedule was jam packed! We attended gymnastics, cheer, martial arts, special needs and fitness focused events and shows across the country, sharing education, equipment, and collaborating with industry folks. When we’re at shows, we really enjoy getting to know all the coaches, owners and athletes who stop by to ask questions, learn about new equipment or just say, “hi” at the tradeshow hall.
Mindset Coaching: Win in Gymnastics and Life
This year’s National Congress in Providence Rhode Island will be recorded in the Tumbl Trak history books as one to remember as we celebrated our 30 year anniversary! Those who visited our booth in the trade show hall were able to take a stroll down memory lane with us and view our company timeline that included the years we introduced iconic equipment, like the Tumbl Trak, or began partnerships with gymnastics greats like Chellsie Memmel.
