about adult-gymnastics.com

about adult gymnasticsGina brings the same excitement she brought to the competition floor to the adult gymnastics movement.

Adult-Gymnastics.com 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 as an adult for 12 years. She was the AAU Ladies Level 8 Junior Olympic All Around champion in 2013 and 2014. Read more about that in the Haverhill Gazette! 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! Hear more about Gina's vision for the Future of Adult Gymnastics on an Episode of the Better Late Podcast.

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 4000 members and counting!

The Facebook Group has 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. They share ideas on how to seek treatment for injuries as well as overcome issues such as mental blocks. 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 are even some celebrities in the group, such as Chellsie Memmel and Wendy Bruce Martin!

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! So please join if you have not already!

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 camp has been postponed due to the pandemic, 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, frequently provided by Tony Retrosi, International Clinician and my  gymnastics coach! I enjoy coaching alongside Tony as an AAU Coach at these camps! Camp has also boasted the coaching services of Wendy Bruce Martin, Olympian and mental training expert. We also also had James Parent of TumblTrak who is an amazing gymnastics coach and so much fun!

Check out this article about camp! Foreign Gymnasts Flock to Local Woman's Camp.

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. Many come back camp after to camp and use it as a training goal as well as a fun time to catch up with great friends.

the adult gymnastics movement continues

about adult-gymnastics.comWe are looking to expand opportunities for both men's artistic gymnastics and women's artistic gymnastics.

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 evergreen 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!

Gina Paulhus has been the owner of Home Bodies in-home fitness training for the past 17 years. She has obtained her Bachelor's Degree from UMass and is a Certified Personal Trainer with the ISSA as well as a Certified Nutrionist. Gina recently became Certified in Pregnancy and Postpartum exercise with CES and loves helping women regain and even surpass their previous level of fitness after this special time in their lives.
