Gym Gab – Gymnastics parents

Here’s an idea long overdue.

A Gymnastics blog for parents.


How was gym today?” is a question every gym parent wants to ask their kid on the car ride home.

Unfortunately this age-old, open-ended question loses it’s importance when the word “fine” become the oh-so common answer.

Here is a list of 25 questions to ask your athlete (not all in the same day of course), that will provide some welcome variety to you and your athlete!

4. What compliment do you remember most today?

9. If you could have worked only one skill today, what would it have been?

14. Pick one word to describe your attitude during workout.

23. What do you want to do different tomorrow?

  1. It’s a good idea, but I would just have a freaking conversation. Ask them about what events they worked, what tricks they are learning, etc.
