A Wall Back is a backflip done by kicking off a wall, and here I have a cushioned, slanted surface (I’m cheating a little) to do the flip.

I used to do competitive gymnastics; however, competitions began taking up too much time and I began to want to focus on schoolwork, so now I’ve downgraded to a non-competitive gymnastics class where we just do tricks for fun. I learned how to do a few things in that class, such as the Wall Back (left), and Aerial (right)!

An Aerial is basically a cartwheel with no hands, and here I’m running on an Air Track and landing on a slightly lowered, cushioned surface (again, cheating slightly), but it’s an Aerial nonetheless!

This is a Webster, or a front flip done by swinging your leg to gain momentum. 

This is a Wall Spin- I’m using a slanted, cushioned mat here, and it’s basically a cartwheel with your hands on the wall, and your legs tucked in.

I sometimes go paddleboarding in the canal behind my house

I do High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts with my dad on the weekends

I got 2nd place in a 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) run!

I used to do competitive gymnastics quite a few years ago- I’m not on a team anymore, but I’m still doing informal gymnastics and learning new tricks!
