The book begins with example warms-ups and stretches moving on to cover posture and all basic gymnastics shapes which are instrumental in performing more complex skills. These skills are then covered in the next sections Jumps Skills Rolls and Leaps. Bringing all of these skills together the book then demonstrates how combined these skills can be used to create routines. In this new edition there are judging sheets enabling the gymnast to track and record their progress a great addition to an already excellent book.
Gemma Coles lives in Bournemouth with her husband and three children where she runs a successful gymnastics club.
"I was one of the kids you occasionally see tumbling &lsquoHead Over Heels' along the road &ndash why walk on your feet when you can walk on your hands? This enthusiasm never left me leading to a career teaching gymnastics where along the way I have learnt a great number of hints and tips that I use every day teaching the sport. I hope to share this knowledge with as many people as possible through our books apps and DVD's. I hope you get as much enjoyment from our products as we have had making them."
