Taylor was a very wild and fearless baby who took every opportunity to flip, sprint, climb, jump, split, hang upside down, or throw herself from furniture! The gym was the only place I could think to take Taylor to let her explore her wild side in a safe environment. Taylor started doing a "mommy & me" recreational gymnastics class as soon as she turned 2. She quickly moved up. At age 3, she was invited to train with one of the competitive team coaches at a different gym and she has been training there ever since! She was practicing once a week until November 2012 when we allowed her to start training three days a week (schedule permitting) to get ready for competition season and we have seen her skills improve a lot since then! She competed in her very first meet at age 5. She was the youngest competitor at the meet but scored well! She is currently the youngest team member at her gym. She LOVES the sport!
