Kruse | Elite - freedom to move

The water is one of the best environments to train body awareness. In water, you have the freedom to move in a non-weight bearing manner. In water, you don't pay for your mistakes. You can push the limits with confidence. Combine this with qualities such as balance, coordination, mobility, strength and speed and you have a recipe for success.

Lily is a young gymnast. When she came to me she was already a great mover. I scratched my head wondering: how can we make an already great mover even better? Her dedication to and enjoyment of her training in the water helped her get to the next level. I was astonished to see how much she improved and how quickly it all happened. That year Lily became a state champion in gymnastics. What a pleasure it was to see all of this unfold. Great work Lily!
