The Quit Factor: When is it time to quit?

Gymnastics is one of the toughest sports in the world. Countless hours in the gym, sacrificing a social life, pushing your body to exhaustion, and for what? To learn that sometimes even if you try your best, it still may not be good enough? Gymnasts are taught to push themselves almost to their breaking point in order to attain the unattainable: perfection. But what happens when a gymnast actually reaches his or her breaking point? How do you know if it’s really time to throw in the towel?

The Quit Factor

Gym Momentum Training Camp Review

This year we hosted Gym Momentum Camp at Yellow Jackets Gymnastics in Boston. I was more than a little nervous because of new location and all the logistics that went into it.

The ENTIRE Korman family and the staff at Yellow Jackets were terrific hosts. There was not one thing that I ever wanted or needed that was not taken care of.

The gymnasts and their coaches as well as Gym Momentum staff all stayed at a local hotel. Accommodations were great and the hotel was in a very convenient locations.

My goal was to deliver quality  instruction for BOTH gymnasts and Coaches.  We were full with over 100 gymnasts and 30 plus coaches attending . The energy was incredible.


Gymnasts attending camp were from:

New Hampshire



New York



New Brunswick, Canada

Newfoundland, Canada

Alberta, Canada


Reykjavik, Iceland


I pride myself at putting together a world class staff. 66148_675021505878218_4606984777202529236_n


As I said, I think the energy and enthusiasm that my staff had really was infectious to all the coaches and gymnasts. Each day we had 5 rotation in the morning (Olympic events plus dance) and 5 Rotations in the afternoon (Olympic events plus photo shoot) then a 45 minute open workout.

As a coach- I always was frustrated when gymnasts from my club attended a camp were were thrown for skills they either were not ready for or that were not taught in a progressive manner. Gym Momentum staff worked closely with all visiting coaches so that they knew what drill we were doing and what was the next step. Each night we had a Q and A session with coaches to answer any questions they might have and share our philosophy.

I believe the comments made by coaches that attended say it all:

Hi Tony,

I need to let you know that this was such a great experience for all my kids, staff and parents. Thank you for putting something together that was fun, educational for the kids & coaches, and that fired up my girls so much that we’ve added on an extra practice for this week.

As you know, we’ve been rebuilding and restructuring. Every year gets better, and opportunities like this are such a blessing. We had eyes, ears, and minds open all weekend, coaches & kids, and will 200% be back next year.

Amazing job, please take a moment and be proud of your and the staff’s hard work, and (maybe) take a nap!! We’ll see you at congress!

I have to say that Gym Momentum has been by far the best training camp that my team has been to. It was well rounded with education for myself and for my athletes, and there is nothing better than that. Your staff, as well as yourself, were extremely approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. We are all ready to attack this summer’s training with gusto! :)

Canadians turn to USAG Junior Olympic Program.


As of September 1, 2014, Gymnastics BC will use the USA Junior Olympic Program (JO) for its provincial level competitive categories. JO will replace the Canadian Provincial Program (CPP), GYMSTART and KIP. Interclub and Performance Plus will continue to be offered, but the athletes will now also have the option to easily transition to the JO program levels 1 and 2.


Fear Not My Canadian Friends!

The JO program. Is pretty basic and straight forward. One of the biggest benefits is that it is fairly easy for parents to understand. SAVING YOU COUNTLESS PHONE CALLS AND E-MAILS.
