Gymnasts live in a world of their own. Dedicated to a strict, eat, sleep, school, gymnastics, lifestyle, there are certain ways of life that only gymnasts will understand.
5. Giving up any form of a social life to go to practice.
Spending a majority, of your time in the gym, it is not unusual that gymnasts will have to give up a sleepover or a party to attend a practice.
4. Finishing a great routine, and then tripping over a mat.
It’s not over til it’s over.
3. No matter how many times you fail, you have 30 seconds to get back up and finish what you started.
Don’t take the overtime penalty…
2. Time management.

1. Giants are not monsters.
Yep, because an “A” rated skill could totally eat you alive…
