Gymnastics is such a fun sport, but it’s also super challenging. It can be so inspiring to watch elite gymnasts compete at national competitions (I mean, who doesn’t love watching the Olympics?!), and they definitely serve as great motivation to keep practicing and setting goals you can work toward. It can also be helpful to get inspiration from gymnasts who aren’t quite at the elite level, but are working hard to get there.

I’ve found some incredible gymnasts on Instagram who serve as great inspiration and motivation to work on your own skills. I reached out to several of these gymnasts who have some fantastic accounts on Instagram (with really big followings). I definitely recommend following these athletes for daily content that will get you dreaming big and working hard. I asked these gymnasts if they could share some advice for anyone who is just starting out but has big goals they want to achieve. Keep reading for what they had to say!

    I’m 13 and i’ve been doing gymnastics for 4 years now. I noticed that I wasn’t able to pass some skills because I have mental blocks, like on bars I’m too scared to cast to handstand and on vault I feel “tense”. It’s very hard to explain but my metal blocks are causing me to feel tight and heavy. The other day I was about to do a front tuck and my mental blocks made me feel weak and tired, even thought I’ve done this skill a lot of times before.

    Here is a tip for overcoming mental block picture your self doing whatever skill your having trouble on a and landing it perfectly. Then figure out exactly what part of the skill you are scared to do or take a video of you trying do do that skill so camera pressure sometimes helped me do a skill.
