This indispensable guide is simply the best book for beginners to the sport of artistic gymnastics. Illustrated with stunning full-color photographs of gymnasts balancing, tumbling and jumping, The Gymnastics Book features skilled guidance from a medal-winning, record-breaking gymnast who is now a noted instructor.

The topics covered in detail include:

  • Finding a good gymnastics club
  • Qualities to look for in a coach
  • Warm-up and cool-down exercises
  • Entering competitive gymnastics
  • Managing victories and losses
  • The importance of family and friends
  • Nutrition and apparel
