“My name is Rich Trevino owner of Trevino’s Gymnastics School I Lancaster, Texas. We have produced many State, Regional, and National Champions throughout our 19 years of operation. Currently our J.O. National Team member is training on this beam and she is as pleased as I am to see such a great new training device.
The Spring Beam by Gym-Trix, Inc. has the same effect as transferring training from a rod floor t o a competition floor. My athletes are able to train more repetitions of skills with less “overuse trauma” due to the softness of landings. This beams rebound capability allows coaches to quickly see kids learning the correct foot and ankle positions that aid in achieving more airtime during jumps and leaps. The beginner athletes are quickly able to feel, while rebounding, that “tightness equals height”.
It is great for round offs, front flips and 2 foot back handsprings or back flips. It enhances by 8”-12” the height of beam tumbling skills on an actual beam surface! Dismounts will gain additional airtime for completing twists or flipping skills already in the works as well as for new skill development.
I would recommend The Spring Beam for anyone serious about long term beam training for athletes!”
