Terrific Tristar Gymnastics

Hola blog fans,

 Yesterday, Thursday 21st September, we were all incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to test out the skills we have been learning with Ethan (our marvelous coach) at the well equipped Tristar gym in Keith Hay Park. What a treat it was too!

First of all though, we all hurtled to the park because we were going to have 10 minutes play on the Flying Fox. Some of us had a turn whizzing through the air from one side to the next while others opted to play on the park equipment.

 However, it didn't last long since we had to be at the gym by 12pm. Arriving at the gym, we were met by one of the coaches called Kane. After taking off our shoes and socks we headed with glee into the gymnasium. Wow! It was HUGE! There was every piece of gym equipment imaginable and the floor was so soft and spongy and bouncing around it almost felt like walking in space.

Kane whizzed through the instructions and rules of being in the gym and after a quick warm up of Stuck in the Mud and practicing our shapes we were led through a circuit by Ethan. There were trampolines, spring boards, beams and all sorts of things imaginable for us to use. I think it's safe to say everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trampolines but the biggest treat has to be the foam pit right at the end where we had to have a tag relay. Running through the pit was certainly a challenge - like I would imagine running through treacle! But such fun. Then just before we left something really funny happened..

We were all trying to hug the instructors as our way of saying thanks for all the fun lessons we've had throughout the term. Kane didn't want to be hugged so he ran off yelling, 'You can't catch me!' Suddenly, everyone was chasing him as if the class were predators and Kane was the prey. We were all laughing so hard. He ran right through the gym and through the foam pit.

 Overall, a GREAT day. I think it's safe to say everyone enjoyed themselves and would love to do it again EVERY WEEK!

 If we were going to rate the day, we'd give it a star rating of 5 stars out of 5!! Epic!

 Hope you enjoyed reading our post about Tristar Gymnastics! Check out our pics too!!
