As I Said Last Time – Back to the Day Job…

….which means training other people in gymnastics and fitness, and training ourselves to keep up with them!

That generally means working up a sweat: in winter, perhaps just the forehead…

…in summer, the heat helps to produce just a little more…

Wrestling is quite effective…

…but, for the ultimate sweat, if you’re a boxer or fighter needing to lose weight quickly, try a sparring session in a waterproof hoodie!

Of course, there are other ways of getting sweaty, such as being a skinny singer in a boiling-hot venue…

Not writing these books shown here – that was a ‘night job’ I suppose, trying to bring in a little extra money (depends heavily on you guys taking the bait, of course…. hint!). No , at the moment it is coaching gymnasts, with some summer acrobatics classes waiting over the horizon. For now, then, I’ll finish with one or two gymnastics pictures.

And for today’s finale, Nile Wilson, one of the UK’s Rio boys: we had the opportunity to meet him a while back. Kewl!
