Skin Health for Summer

With the summer approaching soon, all the best athletes are likely to be exercising in warmer and sunnier conditions. With this change in exercise environment, there are a few precautions that should be taken to ensure that athletes maintain safety while training and competing. From exercise alone, our bodies are exposed to a heightened core body temperature. Exercising in a hot environment can further promote and increase the risk for potential health issues which include dehydration, heat stroke or possible skin cancer.

With May being National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Awareness months let’s take a look at the “skinny” on nutrition for skin health. Fitness and nutrition not only affects our inner health, but also our outer beauty. Components known as free radicals can damage skin cells causing skin to appear dry, dull, or damaged. Foods high in antioxidants and vitamins C, A, and E can combat these nasty free radicals. Below are a few tips in consuming healthy, high antioxidant foods.

We all know how great gymnastics is for the body and mind, but this video blows your mind.

Trietsch Trade Days and Best Gymnastics

We had a wonderful time at the Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church Trade Days on Saturday. We had the pleasure of meeting lots of new people from the Flower Mound area and had a great time with all the kids and parents who stopped by our booth. We especially enjoyed teaching our friend, Mr. Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cone, how to roll down the cheese mat! I think he did a pretty good job! One parent stated, “If you can teach him to roll, then you can teach my child!” Thanks to everyone who came out to see us on Saturday and to TMUMC for hosting such a great event for the community.

Shannon Miller’s Triumph

Shannon Miller Olympic Gymnast

Shannon Miller

Shannon Miller is one of the most decorated American gymnasts of all time and a role model for many gymnasts. She’s an amazing athlete and competitor and was a joy to watch as a fan of gymnastics. For the last few months, Shannon has been undergoing preventative chemotherapy as a precautionary measure due to the discovery of a baseball-sized tumor she had removed earlier this year. She wrote a post on her blog yesterday that explains how her gymnastics training helped her persevere through this ordeal. She just finished her last round of chemo and all of us at Best Gymnastics wish her the best of luck! Please take a moment to read her thoughts.
