I spent the first 17 years of my gymnastics career under Bill and Donna Strauss at Parkettes National Gymnastics Training Center. Parkettes, and Bill and Donna, are legends in the gymnastics world. They routinely send athletes to Olympic Games, World Championships, and National Championships. Over the past year they started mixing Crossfit workouts into their daily strength and conditioning, and it has paid off. This year, Parkettes is sending an army to National Championships. These are the names to look for in 10 years.
