When was the last time you did a cartwheel? Swung upside down on the rings? Or jumped on a trampoline? But until that time when I decided I was too cool for it a decision I very much regret , I thought gymnastics were awesome. All that flipping, and being upside down, and the jumping around, and the foam pit—what could be more fun than that? Unsurprisingly, I had terrible form. My flexibility especially in my back needed improvement.
Though I enjoyed the sessions, I found myself distracted by something else going on in the corner of the room: a group of older women in leotards—many of them, it appeared, in their seventies and beyond—doing somersaults and splits; some even lifting themselves up on rings suspended from the ceiling and doing lithe, athletic flips. I wondered: Ex—circus performers? Former Olympians? How could senior citizens be so extraordinarily bendy? Even after I abandoned Pilates and moved on to barre, then yoga, then spinning—sampling the city dweller's smorgasbord of fitness options without finding one that wholly satisfied—I couldn't stop thinking about those ladies.
