What people might think???

So I was back at the GARUDA apparatus studio on Monday for the first time in 18 months …. Man… what a buzz To be brutally honest, I was actually NERVOUS How would I get on? Would I have the mobility for the repertoire? Will I be able to handle the strength work? Will people [...]
