You may remember Coach Sommer from a previous episode ofthe podcast. He is the former National Team coach for men's gymnastics. I'm not easily impressed, and I have been completely blown away by the sophistication and the elegance of his programming. I have been using GymnasticBodies for just a few months now and I feel more flexible, stronger and younger than I have in years. It sounds cheesy, but it's true.
