When doing gymnastics two weeks ago, I felt we were all perfect tens. It was ladies fun night out for Power Fitness PDX and we decided to have fun at gymnastics. Words can't describe how much fun it was! We walked in and could have been Moms to the other participants of Open Gym. But we didn't care! We sought out Ian, the teacher for the night, and asked him for some pointers and advice for fun "moves". Mind you, the moves we were talking about we hoped wouldn't have our strong, but not gymnastics trained, bodies injured at night's end. We all were eager to hop on the balance beam, climb the rope net, jump on the trampoline, try the rings, do back walkovers and LAUGH!!!
Through the training in Power Fitness PDX has evolved a greater sense of confidence in trying new things...amongst everyone. We laughed, we performed and we embraced our bodies for what they can do! For some it was trying a jump on the balance beam, a feat that wouldn't have been conquered before. But now, knowing that each body is unique and can do incredible things, the feats were tried and tried again. We tried trampoline routines, sweat as we did back bends, and flexed our quads when pointing on the beam. We were and are all PERFECT 10's! It is our own inner score card that we must believe in. Not a judge holding up numbers, but our own inner score card of "10".
