This weeks episode is Maile and her mom Tori talking about what it's like to raise an elite gymnast! After a 13 place all around at the US Secret Classic 2015, She's set up perfect for the P&G Championships, and a long career ahead!
Once in awhile there comes along a pretty fantastic athlete that you get to make a personal connection with, and Maile is one of those athletes for me.
Maile's mom Tori called me about 2 years ago because Maile was having heel pain and they were at their wit's end. So after following the Gymnast Care Heel Pain Protocol and using The X Brace, she was pain-free and back to full-time gymnastics.
In this episode of the Gymnast Care Podcast we get into training, nutrition, and Maile's plans for the future...and about halfway in, Maile drops a bomb that blew me away!
Maile is actually the first elite gymnast to wear my invention, The X Brace, in...

A few weeks ago Gymnast Care published an article by Dr. William Sands and Dr. Courtney Carignan entitle Are Foam Blocks Dangerous To Gymnasts?
If you want to get caught up on the information, read it by clicking here: Are Foam Blocks Dangerous To Gymnasts?
This article created quite a stir. (By quite a stir, threats were leveled at Gymnast Care and our own Dr. Joshua Eldridge by very closed-minded and insecure individuals!)
So we thought it might be a good idea to find out what the deal is from the expert on flame retardants in foam. Do they pose a threat to our young gymnasts?
That's why we did this podcast. We wanted you as the Gymnast Care Community to be educated on what the dangers might be. Is it serious? Are there potential harms? Let's find out!
Dr. Carignan has started a website that will help you and your gym find out what's in your foam at your gym. How awesome is that! Check out Dr....

Over the past 4 years that Gymnast Care has been working with gymnasts, there have been very few coaches that have had ideas that have the potential to revolutionize the way we think about gymnastics.
Brad Garner has the potential to change our sport. In Session 19 of the Gymnast Care Podcast, we get into some great conversation that will change the way you will talk and coach your gymnasts! This is a must listen podcast, so click here to get the whole scoop!
One of the things we talk a lot about at Gymnast Care is getting more gymnastics learning out of the body without creating the stresses that come with excessive repetitions.
But how do we do this? How do we get the body to learn ways to protect itself without the repetitions?
Brad Garner, dance professor from the University of Oregon and gymnastics coach at National Academy of Artistic Gymnastics in Eugene, OR, uses Intelligent Movement to make sure his gymnasts have fun, become amazing...
