Sarah Korngold Discusses Developing Elite Level Gymnastics, Putting The Athlete First, and Building Cultures

In this week's podcast, I was excited to chat with another member of the Ascend Gymnastics Team. With Elite and NCAA success, Sarah Korngold has achieved this with her nurturing and progressive philosophy. She shares her fantastic knowledge of Beam a subject that we’ve not covered before on the podcast; giving an insight into her lower-level development program and what drills and exercises to do. We DISCUSS the culture of her gym and WHAT they do to be successful. HOW to deal with kids that are not motivated and help them progress. Sarah’s thoughts on the College recruiting problem and HOW she is talking to parents about it.  HOW to find a balance between high-level aspirations and goals at a young age and training hours, safety, health, and long-term wellness. WHAT foundations and basics you need to do at the lower levels to be successful on beam. Sarah’s thoughts and drills for beam flexibility. ALSO… FEARS and mental blocks, what to do to help overcome them. ENROL NOW!
