the Jim Walker gymnastics pit

This is a repost from Dec. 2007.

This system is super durable. And probably costs less over the long term.

It’s incredibly safe too as I learned when I tested the one at University of Georgia.


Jim Walker uses a unique design, suspending a grid of special cables one foot above the floor, supporting foam and matting above.

You cannot yet order one of Jim’s pits yourself, as he only does them for friends. (Friends like WOGA, Beigers, Hills, Parkettes, Karolyi Ranch. Those kind of friends.)
