Hi, My name is Jessica and welcome to GymnasticsHQ, the Gymnastics Headquarters. I started GymnasticsHQ in 2011, with the goal of being the best gymnastics resource for parents and gymnasts. I will try to help you set and reach your gymnastics goals.

I was a gymnast growing up, taught gymnastics for 8 years and judged gymnastics for 10. So, basically–I love the sport!

More on My Relationship with Gymnastics

I was in the gym constantly growing up and all through college–either doing gymnastics, coaching or judging. While in college I ran my gym’s summer camp. And I wasn’t the only one in my family constantly in the gym-my mom is a level 10 gymnastics judge and my sister was a level 9 gymnast before going on to compete club gymnastics for Clemson.

Why I started Gymnastics HQ

Gymnastics can be a confusing sport. My goal is to relay gymnastics information in a way that is easy to understand.

Maybe you:

  • are interested, or have a child that is interested in starting gymnastics
  • are trying to improve and move to the next gymnastics level
  • want to know the skills you need to learn before you can progress to the next level
  • have a question about gymnastics that you need help answering
  • want to set goals for yourself, and want help staying motivated

If you are any of those things, I’ve created GymnasticsHQ to try to help you!

I hope that you will find the answers to all your questions on this website, but if I haven’t–feel free to shoot me an email. I’d love to hear from you!
