Shawn Johnson started competitive gymnastics at age 7.
Shawn Johnson started competing because she love gymnastics so much
its because she wanted to be famous and all but do you know what she turned out famous!
She stared when she was 3. She started because her parents said she had to much energy around the house.

For fun, friends and fitness - no. For a competitive career - probably yes.
No, there aren't really any requirements to start competitve gymnastics you just have to have the right clothing and outfits for it so you can get active in it and move.
no she started when she was four years old
Anybody can start gymnastics!
Yep. No! your never to old to start gymnastics. but it may be difficult for you to do it at elite level, but who knows. the best person to ask would be a coach ---- Rather broad question. Which Gymnastic are you speaking of? Aristic (men or womans) Acrobatic, Rhythmic, Tumble/Tramp Gym, Group Gym. In Acro, Tumble Tramp, and Group gym age is less an issue. Group Gym has had squad members in their 80's. NOT KIDDING. anti-gravityzone.com
Well actually you dont know that since were berly in 2012 and the olympics are berly going to start
Yes it is you can start gymnastics at 20
Yes gymnastics is for all ages. There are classes from mommy and me classes to adult classes in certain gymnastics centers. I started gymnastics at a late age for gymnastics. I started at the age of 10 ( I'm 15 now) and I'm now doing competitive gymnastics. But since I did start gymnastics later I'm not at a very high competitive level. My coaches told me if I did start gymnastics at an earlier age like everyone else I could've been at least a level 9 or maybe even 10! But since I do other stuff like cheerleading at school and gymnastics and I'm in high school now I do prep op gymnastics which is gymnastics which is not as committed as being an optional gymnast. Gymnastics is good to start young since your body is really flexible and your not afraid to try new skills and to build motor skills. If you started late like me its also good because you work on flexibility, strength, endurance, and it helps you get disciplined and stay focus at school. Almost every gymnasts get straight As. Adult classes are also good to start since adults also need exercise and they work on flexibility and strength to work on bone strength and endurance. So yes gymnastics is for all ages, and you have plenty of choices to choose from like mommy and me, adult, rec team, competitive team, and prep op levels. Hope this helped. Jean
