I went to GTC for over 10 years and so did my sister, and back then the word I used to describe some of their tactics was 'torture'. Have you seen the show 'Dance Moms'? That coach reminds me of my old coach at GTC. Both are loud, fat, screaming, rude, made us cry, etc. The coaches at GTC took my love of gymnastics away. I couldn't do this one particular trick on one event so the coaches would make me stay over there alone for the rest of practice until I could do it. Sometimes I'd be over there for 3 hours. I had a mental block and I just couldn't do it. I begged my dad to let me quit. Eventually I left GTC and went to Olympia, a different gym, which I loved. I could do gymnastics and finally enjoy it. Such a different atmosphere. It's sad that their couches did such things. And there's so much more but it's just too much to write.
