What Are People Saying about This E-Book?

"I encourage all coaches to dive into the “The SHIFT Gymnastics Educational Series: Volume 1”. Not only does it offer hundreds of core and flexibility exercises, it also incorporates brand new screening and prevention techniques into gymnastics training. I firmly believe this forward thinking movement will allow athletes to stay in the sport longer, as well as reach a higher level of gymnastics with less time off for injuries.
