Tell the Huddle who you are

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

My name is Dan Gill; I'm a former US National Team and Stanford University gymnast. I'm also a co-founder of company behind this site. Even after almost 4 full years out of the sport, I still can't get enough of it and try to be at as many meets as I can.

 

I'm thrilled to provide a place to hopefully bring gymnasts, coaches, judges, and parents together to learn all about gymnastics, talk about it, see videos, and more. Please contact me anytime with suggestions of how to make the site better.

 

Now, introduce yourself so we can see who's here.....

 My name is David Durante.  I am training right now for the 2008 Olympic Team out of Colorado Springs.  This site is great for gymnasts to come together and talk about all the stuff going on in the gymnastics world.  I will be on here quite a bit!

Hello there, Dave. D.F. Pendrys here. I occupy the role of gymnastics  fan, but have been trying to increase my knowledge of the sports throughout the years. Though I still come at things as a spectator who is just wowed by all that is accomplished by gymnasts at all levels. In addition to running  websites dedicated to advancing the sport, I run or co-run groups on facebook to the same ends. I also write about collegiate gymnastics, attempting to provide modest, and I stress modest coverage and insights of the meets in the northeast region, mainly women's due to the meets overlapping with the men's (but I will be working to cover the men's side more as much as I can.)

 

I am happy to support sites like this that are attempting to grow and build communities.

Hi, I'm Jessica. Even though I've wanted to do gymnastics since I was 7, I'm just now getting to start my "formal" training at 19. I'm hoping to interact with as many people on here as I can, and I'll be on often.

 Hey Dan, I am finally on Huddler.  All I needed was a working computer.  One question, why is Kenny with goggles part of your logo?

Mr. Gill--a fellow Capital Alum here...Amy/Carlos suggested Huddle to get in touch with you. I've organized a Capital Alum Reunion of sorts for next Monday, Dec. 29 at Auldshebeen's in Fairfax City...would be great to see you and catch up after all these years! Hope all is well and Happy Holidays!

My name is Jason and I am kind of new to the sport but I take an adult gymnastics class and enjoy everymoment of it.  I do have a problem as far as when I am tumbling my wrists usually take a good pounding since I am 6'3 240lbs.  could someone reccommend what I could do to help my wrists out I wouldn't mind continuing for its great excersise but as I said my wrists get a pounding.  I drive for a living and sometimes it takes a couple of days for the soreness to go away I saw people talking about "Tiger Paws" if anyone might know if that is a good idea for me please comment it would be greatly appreciated

Hello all,
I've known young Dan Gill since he was about 5, and I was 6, in Richmond, VA.

I was/am a gymnast (who really outgrows it?) for most of my life so far.  I am a helicopter pilot, I teach Computer Science at the Naval Academy, and I volunteer at a veterinary clinic on the weekends.  I don't really know what to say, except I'm still involved with the sport, and I still work out (just did some D's on pommels the other day!).  I am the Officer Representative for the men's gymnastics team at the Naval Academy, I wrote them a scoring program, and I'll travel with them for all their meets this year.  So hello to all!

Hi. Novice 33 year old Still Ring gymnast. I learned about still rings from CrossFit. I fell in love immediately. Having no gymnastics background, I hurled myself into the wonderful world of Rings. Progress: I can do 5 muscle ups, unbroken, skin the cat and hold a pike for a couple of seconds. Any suggestions about instructional material, videos, books, or advice is greatly appreciated from the folks in this forum. Also, if someone could offer up a fairly easy routine to practice, please let me know. Thanks for your consideration. Tony
