An Inside Look: Inside Gymnastics Magazine and Inside Gymnastics on Tour!

Join Inside Gymnastics In Person for an All-New Immersive Experience!

Bringing the Inside Gymnastics magazine experience to life, Inside Gymnastics on Tour is an an all-new one-day, two-track immersive experience for athletes, their coaches, gym owners and parents, dedicated to providing a positive, safe, diverse and fun educational opportunity celebrating the sport of gymnastics in hand-selected gyms across the country!

A Note From Inside Gymnastics

With the goal of serving the gymnastics community as the leading media outlet for the sport, Inside Gymnastics magazine was founded in 2002 with a launch in March of that year. The debut issue featured eventual Olympian and U.S. National Champion Tasha Schwikert on the cover. We spent a day with her at her high school (where we actually shot the cover), to show what her life was like away from just training and competition results. From the beginning, the magazine has had a focus on showcasing life both on and off the competition floor, with some describing the magazine as a cross between ‘Sports Illustrated’ and ‘People’ magazine, for the sport of gymnastics. Gymnasts are dynamic athletes with individual personalities and unique skill sets, and the mission has always been to showcase the person as a whole, not just the competition results.

And whether you’re a gymnast, coach, club owner, parent or fan, Inside Gymnastics has aimed to have something for everyone in each issue. Insightful articles, personality profiles, columns from Olympic legends, plus fashion, fitness, nutrition, product spotlights and more – all with stunning photography! 

Now, we’re embarking on a journey to travel to select cities across the country for an in-person experience for athletes, parents, plus club owners and coaches. We call it Inside Gymnastics on Tour, with an immersive day of learning and celebration in the sport we all love. I like to think of it as bringing the magazine and your favorite feature to life in person!

Maybe you’ve read our feature stories on Bridget Sloan, Megan Skaggs or BJ Das, or book marked our online interview with Norah Flatley – and now you get to meet them in person for a motivational speech and autograph session! Maybe you’ve been following 1984 Olympic gold medalist Kathy Johnson Clarke’s NCAA commentary or her take on artistry and training the whole gymnast as a person, and want to hear more. Or you’ve seen incredible images from a stunning floor routine – and now you get to hear the backstory along with tips to polish your own presentation!

From mindset to motivation, fitness to having fun, choreography to peak conditioning, and everything in between, we think you’ll walk away with a new outlook, great tips from legends that you can incorporate into your routines and daily training, and more motivation than ever before to be your true self as an athlete. And hey, you just might see yourself in the pages of the magazine one day as well!

We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event and being a part of your journey in this sport we love so much!

“The off season is a perfect time to evaluate a gymnasts’ goals,” Tomlinson said. “Our hope with Inside Gymnastics On Tour is to give athletes a moment with some of their heroes to inspire them to live like their own centerfold – owning every step of their journey. Every moment of success, each moment of adversity… through the resilience and joy… we hope athletes whole-heartedly dive into this experience and walk away knowing they can achieve anything they set their mind to.”
