MIRROR CHALLENGE

Our family mirror challenge is a perfect opportunity for you to see how well you could learn one of your gymnast's routine. Pick from a floor or beam routine of 4 moves (any moves you can both do safely) and with your gymnast show us how well you can perform the routine together as if you were a mirror image of each other. Get your whole family involved;

parents, siblings etc (new entry per video).
