Gym Rats, Gymnasts and Handstands

An update from Shanghai (yes, holiday time!!). I seem to have defeated the Great Firewall of China and posted two new sets on the second Fitness (etc.) page ( – 20 gym bunnies and 20 assorted gymnasts and handstanders.

The page got updated OK but this post will try to link to Google which is absolutely Verboten here, so I have my fingers crossed when I finally press ‘Enter’! Of course, if you’re reading this, it worked!

Here’s a couple of extras to set the mood: a nice upstart…

…a Russian hold at the poolside…

…and a very determined gym bunny!



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...

    Great encouragement with the photos! However, as I age, I am left to wonder…How much is work and how much is genetics? I’m referring specifically to the over 50 crowd. I see a lot of photos of men and women over 50 who look great, but they are usually celebrity types with a lot of money to spend on plastic surgery and its related maintenance. Today, I am determined to remain active, but arthritis and other painful items have newly limited me as I age. Really, how many Jack Lalaines and Lucille Balls are there? (Lucille Ball had a fantastic figure she could put into a legless tuxedo suit in her 70s.) Lucie Arnaz, her daughter, is 67 and looks the same as her Mom.
