Workout Insider: Desert Lights Ramps Up Preseason Training
This workout was filmed in September and features the top group of level 10s and elites at Desert Lights Gymnastics in Chandler, Arizona. The gymnasts begin with the gym’s version of the national team warmup, and you’ll also see head coach and owner Lisa Spini show a flexibility circuit that she’s used for years to help improve extension in leaps and jumps. The team moves through all four rotations, working on specific skills and combos to get ready for preseason intrasquads.
Make sure to watch for aspiring elite Alex Theodorou as she trains a Cheng vault along with other big skills and combos.
