I’ve frequently linked to the fantastic Gymneo WAG coaching videos out of France.
Yes, they are in French … and it’s like they’ve got a different word for everything.
Happily, the video graphics are superb.
Here’s another free short sample from the Gymneo Facebook page.
Angelo Ritorto of Gymneo offered me a chance to review the full site. I’m working through it starting today.
So far they have 15 gymnastics “courses” posted. More are being added.
Each is broken into 7 parts:
Gymneo.tv is the video site. One course is available there as a free sample. Le Stalder. (43 minutes)
You can purchase training courses like that one-at-a-time. Or get everything for 259€ / year. ($352)
Once I’ve looked at all 15 courses, I’ll be back with a full review.
I use Google translate when unsure of the French text.
Gymneo.com is their boutique, offering books, posters and more.

November 10th, 2013 — Gymnastics, pommel horse, product endorsements, safety
… Designed by coaches, The Colt is the exact shape of a Pommel Horse at half the length …
… 3 handle placement locations: center and both ends (regulation width apart).
… light enough to be easily moved (40 pounds without pommel handles) …
Price: From $440.00 to $745.00
If you move guys too quickly from mushroom to full-size horse, technique may suffer. This looks a great intermediate step.
And may even cause less wrist pain.

August 30th, 2013 — club governance, Gymnastics, planning, product endorsements, recreation
One of the best products I saw at U.S. Congress was demonstrated to me by Mike Fitzgerald from New Zealand.
His company — Smart Moves — offers a platform where any sport, any organization, any club can create a database of lesson plans.
Click PLAY or watch how it works on YouTube. (5min)
Everything is stored in the cloud. Everything can be viewed from any browser: tablets, smart phones, Mac, PC, etc.
You can add images and videos.
Jeff Lulla, for example, has already put together a video series of Gymnastics drills for Smart Moves.
Click PLAY or watch a sample on YouTube.
Videos are easily linked to lessons.
If you might be interested, watch another more detailed video on how it works – Smart Planner (quick start videos combined)
Cost for most people is between US$29 – $99 / month.
Contact Smart Moves with more questions. Or sign up for a free 10 day trial.
Clubs and organizations are jumping on this RIGHT NOW.
Smart Moves assumes you will be printing the lesson plans week-to-week.
In the future, instead, we’ll wirelessly display the lessons on monitors around the Gym using something like Google Chromecast ($35 / monitor).
Leave a comment if you’ve tried Smart Moves.

Coaches Jason Fredericks and his wife (former national team member) Mary Beth Arnold have been quietly working on a massive new NCAA Gymnastics site.
Jason’s Mom is Wanda Fredericks, Jake Dalton’s first coach.
It compares somewhat with our beloved troester.com — but is done quite differently, with different features.
And a modern, welcoming look.
Sample graphic. Most Men’s Team Championships:
Check it out, a work in progress. Call it a BETA site …
It’s unofficial. Not a product of the NCAA.
During the 2014 season many results will be posted day of the meet. We won’t need to wait until the weekend finishes.
Jason’s got experience. He’s one of the creators of Poptropica, an online kids game with over 500 million accounts.
I’ll be following the new site closely.
