Tuli’s Cheetah: Testimony From a Gymnast

Gymnast Using Tuli's Cheetah Gen2 on the beam

Hi, my name is Kyndall. I started gymnastics at the age of two, and have done the sport ever since. Gymnastics has been a major aspect of my life for over 19 years. I have had many ups and downs with the sport, but all of it has taught me lessons that I will carry with me the rest of my life.

 

Growing Pains 

Growing up in the gym, my body endured a lot of hard landings, pains, and aches. Starting at such a young age, I hit my growth spurts during the years I have been in the sport, resulting in many growing pains. I had Sever’s Disease for the longest time. It would come and go and be very painful, to the point where it hurt to walk. Due to the fact that there is no off-season for gymnastics, I pushed through the pain.

 

Found Tuli's Cheetah Compression Sleeve with Heel Cup

I was directed to Medi-Dyne and the Tuli’s Cheetah Compression Sleeve with Heel Cup to see if it would help ease any of the pain I was experiencing. I wore it every day at practice and in competition, and it provided me with the support I needed to safely do the sport I love. Outside of the gym, I wore the Tuli’s Gel Heel Cups in my tennis shoes to help with the pain of walking.

I found the Tuli’s Cheetah Heel Cup very helpful on all of the pounding events, vault and floor, and also on beam. I stopped experiencing growing pains when I was a Sophomore in high school, but continued wearing the Cheetah on beam for the extra support and cushion. Flipping and jumping on a four-inch piece of wood with very little cushion, didn’t feel good on my heels and ankles at all.

Medi-Dyne’s product is the only product that worked, and allowed me to continue doing the sport I love throughout the years.

Yes, the Cheetah is good for growing pains, but it is also helpful for the comfort and cushion of landings even when the growing pains stop. I highly recommend this product to any gymnast who finds events to hurt their heels, as well as the little gymnasts experiencing Sever’s Disease and growing pains!

I hope you find this helpful!
