What: The Bi-Co Gymnastics Club was founded as an outlet for both experienced and novice gymnasts of all genders to practice the sport in a safe and supportive environment. Gymnastics is both a graceful and daring sport, which hones strength, balance, and flexibility through a variety of movements on vaults, bars, beams, and even the floor.
Who: Micaela Gold ’19 and Liana Thomason BMC ’19 are the current co-heads of the club.
When: The club members drive off-campus to Upper Merion Dance and Gymnastics Center in King of Prussia every Monday and Thursday evening to work out with a coach for an hour and a half. A typical meeting starts off with a warm-up, stretching, and basic floor-skill drills led by either the coach or one of the co-heads. At the end of every workout, everyone reconvenes for conditioning.
Did you know? The club’s regular attendees have a wide range of gymnastics experience. Some members have competed competitively as high as level eight, while other members have never practiced gymnastics before coming to college.
