One Second of Every Day as a Gymnastics Coach
Alright yall, I’ve kept my blog relatively free of gymnastics thus far. I know it’s not a sport everyone knows, cares about, or is involved in. However, it’s an enormous part of my life and of who I am. I didn’t want to scare you off by making you think this would be all gymnastics and therefore not relatable. Hopefully, you can see that there’s a lot about me that is independent of gym. If I had a blog that didn’t talk about gymnastics at all, I’d be deceiving you and that is something I cannot and will not do.
Making Gymnastics Accessible to Non-Gymnasts
So then the challenge became how to best introduce the gymnastics realm of my life to Insomniac Thoughts. As it so happens, I was organizing my files on my laptop (late at night of course), and I found a video I made for my girls two years ago. It’s fun, cool to watch, and definitely shows what gymnastics life is about.
What Gymnastics Life is Really About
I have accumulated many videos while coaching and compiled them into one cohesive montage. I created the first half of the video using the app one second every day, and the second half of the video using splice. These apps allowed me to take snippets of each video and piece them together to create the final product you can watch below. I hope you enjoy if you have any questions at all about gymnastics, coaching or what you see in the video, please do not hesitate to ask.
The girls you’ll see range in age from about 7 to 17 years old. They are some of the most dedicated and hard-working young ladies I’ve had the honor to know and it’s been an absolute joy to watch them grow up. I am currently working on creating something similar from the most recent season, and I’ll be sure to share that once it’s complete. Enjoy!
