What is Gold Medal Bodies?
They are a group of talented trainers and athletes, many of them former elite gymnasts, dedicated to teaching people how to develop “gold medal caliber practice.” Like GBT, they believe exercise should be fun and that you should train to be strong for the things that matter in your life. They offer a lot of great training programs on a range of gymnastics practices, from Rings and Parallettes to Floor and basic Foundational training. Their materials are designed for home use, and include on-line video tutorials, progress charts, written manuals, and email support. They also have a nice community section, called the “GMB Posse,” where you can engage with other people learning from their systems. And, they’re a really nice bunch of people!
The gymnastics foundation of their programs is a natural fit for what we do here at Global Bodyweight Training, and I was honored when they asked if GBT would provide them with a short bonus video to be included with the Floor Two program. So, if you purchase the Floor Two program, you’ll also get a short bonus tutorial of a “hand balancing flow” I created to go with their video. (This is also a great tie-in for our upcoming Hand Balancing DVD to be released in early 2013!).
Floor Two includes all the materials you’ll need to make your way through the whole training program:
- The F2 Training Manual: 52 pages of notes and references in clear, easy to understand language;
- Instructional Videos: in formats that are easily imported into your smartphone, iPad, or destktop computer;
- Workout Charts: 48 pages of workout charts to guide you through your practice
You’ll find they have impressive teaching methods that help make really complex moves become accessible. You can find all the details about their methods, the Floor Two program, and their other offerings, at their website here. I recommend you check it all out!
