When she comes home from tumbling practice and wants to keep practicing (good!), a thickly padded tumbling mat is just what she needs to do it safely. That’s why our tumbling mats are made to the same standards as those she uses at the studio, and why they’re available to you to use at home. Continue reading “Gymnastics Can Be Safe At Home”

Too Much Sitting? Tumbling Mats to the Rescue!

If your kids have not started back to school, they soon will be, and the best thing you can have ready for them when they get home is a healthy snack and some tumbling mats. (“Huh?”) You heard us correctly – something to hold them over until dinner and something to help them maintain an active lifestyle rather than crashing on the couch or bed with an electronic entertainment device. We are definitely not anti-electronics, but one thing is for certain: when kids have the option to be active or sedentary, it’s far too easy to choose the latter. But we all know where that road leads. Continue reading “Too Much Sitting? Tumbling Mats to the Rescue!”
