Some Days in the Gym

A few days in our former home in Tennessee means not only time in the private gym (see previous post!) but some time to catch up with the lads we used to teach gymnastics to…

Some of them have come on very well, so let’s celebrate with a few more gymnastics images:

And, after ten shots of gymnast boys, one from the ballet school…

…and perhaps a little more stretching…

Yes, even just touching your toes (with straight legs) counts as a good stretch!

We had ‘a good stretch’ here in TN – 17 years in fact. In that time we’ve discovered our gay love, trained as acrobats and latterly as ‘fakirs’ too done loads of shows and some circus, and had plenty of adventures along the way. Most of all, we’ve made loads of great friends, and formed a special bond with eight other gay guys, so close that we have sworn to celibacy except within that group, which has kept us all ‘safe’ from STDs. It’s going to be hard – real hard – to give all t hat up, and perhaps that last thing – the Tuan Jie group rules, we will try to preserve. However, depending on who we meet in our new situation, our mates have made it clear that Tuan Jie is not ‘for life’ if things change. So long as we’re honest, and get a test before getting back together… who knows what the future holds?

For more info on what our past held, look no further:

And now, keeping the gym theme, it’s great results in the weights gym for the rest of today’s picture:

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
