Alec Yoder – Member of USA Gymnastics Team

Want to know what life is like for an Elite gymnast on the national team?  This video introduces you to Alec’s life.   He’s home schooled part time, but goes to school twice a week when he is at home and not out on the road for his gymnastics career.

Training is not always easy, but he is dedicated to it.
