Hazli Parents 4ft Beam!


Hazli Collection - Your Gymnastic Store
IMG_6903.jpgI’m SO excited to introduce you to the newest addition to our home gym! This amazing 4ft beam is from a company that to us called The Hazli Collection {Hazli Parents on social media} Their mission is to “make Play the foundation of Learning, to teach the WHOLE child.” Recently they introduce this 4ft beam and a 8ft folding beam that has honestly taken social media by storm! EVERYONE in the gymnastics community is talking about Hazli!
We were BEYOND thrilled when we were asked to test it out Hazli Collection 4ft Beam!!
Here’s some beam info for you:
  • Size specs: 4 feet length, 4 inch height, 4 inch wide top ( like competition beams) that tapers down to an 8 inch wide & stable base.
  • Awesome hook & loop system, meaning you can easily lengthen with a second 4ft Hazli beam to make it 8 feet long.
  • Hazli beams are filled with a soft and supportive EVA foam and covered with abrasion resistant artificial leather.
  • Hazli beams come in the pretty pink color and the traditional tan beam color.

Gabbi loves that she can carry her beam anywhere because its so incredibly light. It may be tiny but it is mighty! Its soft and squishy yet firm making it perfect for any level from toddler to advanced. Because of its light weight it can easily be toted to the park or even grandmas house to show off beam skills! I absolutely love this because Gabbi loves showing off to her grandma that she adores but sometimes my mom can’t make it to our house or to her practice, the Hazli beam is so perfect, we may even pick up another one for her house.ggps2

Honestly beam was probably Gabbi’s least favorite event and of course we can all understand why, your up high on a four inch wide plank! This Hazli beam has help her confidence SO much! You might be thinking its only 4ft what could you possibly use it for?

Gabbi  loves working on:

  • Handstands
  • Back Walkovers
  • Back Bends
  • Turns
  • Leaps
  • Press Handstands

I think this would be awesome for young beginners who need to work on balance!

The Life in Bloom has been featuring workout equipment since 2011 and gymnastics gear since 2017 so its no surprise I often get emails asking about gym equipment, one of the most common gymnastics emails I get asks about gym equipment {specifically beams} that will not take up a ton of room and fit in small living spaces. In the past I have had a difficult time answering such emails, oh my gosh guys this beam is perfect! It’s perfect for literally any size home because it can easily be stored in the closet, under a bed or wherever! 

We are SO impressed with Hazli and want to get the Pink Folding Beam so that Gabbi can use it to work on her entire beam routine! Gabbi also REALLY wants the Pink Delicious Home Gymnastics Mat.

I HIGHLY recommend heading over to Hazli and checking out all the awesome items they have!!

Tumbl Trak Addie Beam!

See the source image

We have been in love with Tumbl Trak since we got the skill builder set and tumbling mat. So it’s no surprise that when the opportunity arose to get a balance beam and not just any balance beam but the Addie beam we jumped at it!

Of course the beam arrived while Gabbi was at school so I waited to open it until she got home. She was so excited to open this huge box!

IMG_0668

IMG_1366She squealed as we set it up!  Gabbi is because like many gymnasts she struggles with beam confidence, it’s not that she’s scared but she just isn’t totally confident in her skills.

The Addie beam has become a absolute ‘must have’! It sits on the floor with purple rounded feet, which we LOVE! Gabbi adores the Addie beam and loves working on skills like turns, leaps, handstands and cartwheels.  She is so proud, so confident, and ready to conquer the world!

IMG_0657

I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Addie beam {at any level}, especially if you have a competitive gymnast that needs to practice more at home!
What we love:

  • The Addie beam is competition width, so no learning and relearning skills because of different beam widths.
  • Its the perfect home size at 8ft!
  • Its low to ground so she can safely practice new skills at home!
  • Gabbi loves that the beam is slightly “cushy”! It has the perfect amount of padding and is so soft.
  • The Addie is PERFECT for all skills at all levels!

The Addie Beam features:

  • Its only $179
  • 8 ft long and competition width (10 cm)
  • It has the look and feel of a competition beam
  • Its covered in synthetic suede
  • It has a wood core
  • It has rounded top corners
  • The support legs are rubberized to help protect little feet

IMG_1406

The Addie beam can easily behind and couch or under the bed. When Gabbi is not using her Addie {pretty much when she’s in bed!} we like to put it here in front of our fire place. When we have guests we just move the beam to the twins room. Though it is fairly heavy, Gabbi {little miss independence] can move the beam to where she wants it by herself. She moves one end at a time…its adorable.IMG_0764_1

Did you know that Tumbl Trak is more than just gymnastics, they have tons of great equipment in all price ranges and their customer service is AMAZING!

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Stacy, James and Tumbl Trak for sending Gabbi this equipment.

*Although Tumbl Trak did send me the Addie Beam to feature I was not compensated for this post or require to give a positive review.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Girl Power Sport GIVEAWAY!

The power to play. The power to change. The power to thrive.
Psst! There is a giveaway at the end!!

Today I am SO excited to share one of our most favorite gymnastics companies!! It’s called Girl Power Sport , its local to us {in Washington State}. I am confident once I introduce you to them you will love them as much as we do!

ggps2

ggps4We first became acquainted with them after Gabbi last year and immediately fell in love with their company and mission! Not only do they have the cutest leotards check out how cute this USA Swing Top and #GIRLPOWER capris leggings are! Oh SWOON over this team USA red star jacket!! This outfit will be absolute perfection on the 4th of July!ggps3

Fun Fact: Girl Power Sport is made in the USA and proceeds from every sale goes to charity!

Girl Power Sport also specializes in beautiful and unique fabrics that you don’t see with other companies!

One such fabric is the ridiculously adorable Gym Cat Leotard! Gabbi loves cats so of course it has become one of her favorite leotards and the fact that one cat is doing a back handspring it the CUTEST!

Not only is this leotard the cutest darn thing I’ve ever seen, it’s so incredibly well made! Quality is the most important thing when I buy my daughter leotards, honesty too often we buy Gabbi leotards and they fit great in the torso but are so darn baggy everywhere else that they just look ridiculous! Girl Power Sport has done a fantastic job on their leotard cut!

ggps1

Generally Gabbi is not a fan of leotards with more one fabric…she hates the seams, but this Girl Power Sport leotard is different! The seam between the kitty fabric and the pink fabric on the sides is very soft and she doesn’t even notice it! Also the pink fabric is shiny, often times that means that the inside of the fabric is rough, this fabric is not!

Guys we are absolutely loving this leotard and cannot wait to get her more, in fact…

There are so many GP SPORT lovelies on Gabbi’s wishlist:

GP SPORT Stella Space Cat Leotard, Main, color, BLUE

A bit about Girl Power Sport:

Girl Power Begins!  As a mompreneur, I wanted to create a company that encourages girls to be strong, active and goal driven.  I was born with a heart defect that limited my activity level.  After a number of heart surgeries, I set a goal to have an active lifestyle. So far, I have beat the odds and have run 21 marathons and 1 50k.  I want my children to learn the importance of hard work and perseverance on the field as an athlete as well as all aspects of their lives. I have used coaching as a way to encourage and impart the things I have learned that ultimately, you can overcome the odds. Through dance, gymnastics and sports, girls learn to be assertive, work as a team and test their abilities and strength. In the words of Shalane Flanagan, “Keep your head up, keep your heart strong,” I want girls who wear my products to feel pride, feel assertive, feel the sense of team and above all, feel they can beat the odds while maintaining a sense of kindness for others.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Girl Power Sport to giveaway a Gym Cat leotard to one lucky winner!

ggps

We are going to do this giveaway old school!! Entering is easy!

Yep it’s that easy!

This giveaway will run until March 20th and I will select a winner using random.org

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Lisa at Girl Power Sport for the adorable leotard!

*Although GPS did send a leotard for partnering with them I was not compensated or persuaded to write anything I do not mean-  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Heart Month Fundraiser from Lizatards

Remember earlier this month when I shared the awesome fundraiser my friends over at Lizatards are having? In case you missed it I wanted to share it once more before February comes to an end!

February is Heart Health/ Heart Disease Month and chances are we have all been effected by it in one way or another.  It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.

IMG_6822We are blessed and so thankful that our children have not had to spend countless days, months or even years in the hospital, but that is not the case for some of our friends. Two families we know both have sons with extreme heart conditions and have spent most of their lives in the hospital, had countless appointments and surgeries, some good, some not so good. We’ve watched helplessly as their children suffer unable to do anything and SO thankful for the doctors and nurses to are helping.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts Lizatards is not only our fave but they are always giving back! This month in honor of Heart Health they are doing an amazing fundraiser the proceeds will go to the Children’s Heart Institute. When I heard about this Fundraiser I wanted to share it with the world…so that’s what I’m doing!

Right now you can get this amazing long sleeve burnout {thin yet cozy fabric} for $10 with the proceeds going to families who need it! The Heart with Wings shirt comes in three great colors

Lizatards Heart with Wings Thermal Long Sleeve- Donation
Lizatards Heart with Wings Thermal Long Sleeve- Donation
Lizatards Heart with Wings Thermal Long Sleeve- Donation

This isn’t just a cute shirt, there is actually a very emotional story behind this sweet design. This heart with wings was drawn by Brittany a sweet 14 year old girl who died from a heart condition.

Please help these families by the supporting this amazing cause and the Children’s Heart Institute.

Heart Health Month Fundraiser

February is Heart Health / Heart Disease Awareness Month. Let be honest here chances are you are someone who has been effected by heart disease or you know someone who has. It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.

It’s a Jungle Leotard is covered in the coolest lions you’ll ever see! The gorgeous shades of pinks, purples and reds make this leotard an absolutely show stopper! I’m sure this will be a favorite in the summer with jean shorts!

Unicorn Leotard (in Lilac) This leotard is life to Gabbi…unicorns, rainbows, hearts AND it purple! What?! It’s like all her favorite things rolled into one! Again, this will definitely be worn with shorts in the summer! This beautiful leotard is also available two other colors: mint and black! We definitely plan to get Gabbi them!

Once again Lizatards didn’t disappoint…in fact they hit it out of the park with these leotards!
