about adult gymnastics

This site is owned and operated by Gina Paulhus. Gina got a late start as a kid in gymnastics but still managed to compete in high school. She took a break from the sport in her early 20s but found her way back one day when she found herself playing around outside one day and realized how much she missed it. She then became an adult gymnast. She competed in USAG, USAIGC and AAU adult competitions for 12 years. She was the AAU Ladies Level 8 Junior Olympic All Around champion in 2013 and 2014. While some health concerns have sidelined her from competition and attending practice as of late, she still does as much gymnastics as she can, whenever she can!

her facebook group caused adult gymnastics to blow up

about adult-gymnastics.comGina wants to make sure everyone...including Nadia...knows about adult gymnastics!

Gina Paulhus started the wildly popular Facebook Group, "Just Like Fine Wine ... Adult Gymnastics" in 2014 as a means to keep in touch with athletes she met at competitions.

At the time Gina didn't have an adult team to train with, so she loved how the group helped her to be able to stay in touch with like-minded folks. Little did she know that the group would grow to 3000 members and counting!

It's proven to be a wonderful resource for folks who love adult gymnastics at all ages and levels. Folks share their accomplishments as well as their struggles in that group. You can post videos and receive feedback from other adult gymnasts and coaches, too! It's also a great place to chat about current gymnastics news and broadcasts.

There is nothing beter than talking and sharing with other adult gymnasts who "get it." You might also make some lifelong friends - that has happened for so many of us!

adult gymnastics camp was born

In addition, Gina Paulhus started the world's first exclusive Adult Gymnastics Camp in 2015. This is camp held twice a year at Atlantic Gymnastics in Portsmouth NH (Unfortunately this summer's camp was canceled due to COVID, but we will be back hopefully very soon!)  At the camp, gymnasts train with instruction provided by experienced coaches  over three days. We also offer clinics covering topics relevant to adult gymnastics.

There is even a gymnastics watch party - and in the summer months there is a beach trip at the end of the camp! Some of the winter adult campers decide pair their gymnastics trip with some great skiing or other recreational endeavors that are available in the area. There are also plenty of other opportunities to socialize with other adult gymnasts and the adult gymnastics coaches during the camp at local restaurants or our host hotels during camp. It's truly a blast and a highlight of many adult gymnast's lives.

the adult gymnastics movement continues

about adult-gymnastics.com

Gina has been operating the blog adult-gymnast.com for the past three years, which she took over from Jessica O'Beirne of Gymcastic when Jessica's podcast began to take up all her free time.

Gina springboarded (hehe) off that and wanted to build a larger site that included the blog content but also included more long-standing resources that will come in handy for adult gymnasts of all ages to enjoy. 

Gina looks forward to continuing to expand the adult gymnastics movement worldwide with your support. A fun way to support Gina's efforts to bring adult gymnastics together is to purchase something from the apparel store. All proceeds go toward the expenses for the maintenance and growth of this site, AND you'll get to display membership in our Tribe! 


If you'd rather, you can just donate. 100% of your donation goes toward the expenses for the maintenance and growth of this site. Donations are never expected, but always appreciated!


If you're not in a position to donate, no worries. We totally get it! Anytime you share a page from this site or post about the adult gymnastics movement you are already giving back!

This site exists to help you, the adult gymnast!

Please let us know what else you'd like to see here. We will do our best to help you out! And if you have something to contribute, please contact us!
