GYM TALK: Natalie Humbert and Noel Stubbs
Thursday, April 12, 2012

Hey gym fans! This is Nat Attack (Natalie Humbert) and Noweezy (Noel Stubbs) comin’ to you live from the Jacuzzi room in the hotel in Bridgeport, Connecticut! This has been a very exciting week for us, as we have worked so hard to achieve this goal of making it to nationals! This week started off with Easter Break. We kept working sedulously in the gym, and we even had the privilege of having a practice meet and getting a judge to give us lots of corrections. It was really great to hear advice about the little things that you normally wouldn’t think about. It’s all about the details at this point!

Yesterday was a long travel day, but it was fun to be able to relax with the team before the big meet. Last night we had a great team meeting. Our awesome coach really put things in perspective by telling us that all we are only going to be able to experience this moment once with this team. When we are older, we won’t necessarily remember the meet, we will remember the memories that we have made and the lifelong friendships that we have built this year. We have nothing to lose. We’re just going to go out there and have fun and hit our routines like we know how! When it’s all said and done, we will smile because we know we gave it 100 percent and left it all out on the floor.

Today we started off early with breakfast and then headed off to practice in the gym that we will compete in tomorrow and man was it a great practice! We walked in the gym with confidence and the Ladies activated their tsunami of swagger! After practice, we all got dressed up and went to a banquet with all of the other competitive teams. We listened to some very motivational speakers. Something that really stuck out to us was when one of the speakers stated, “You practice how you compete, so tomorrow, compete how you practice.” And that is definitely what we are going to do!  Tomorrow you better believe we’ll be bringin’ that tornado in full force!

Over and out!

Oh yeah…. GO LADIES!
