Tulsa Cheerleading | Episode #47 – Tumbling Music options
Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Tulsa tumbling experts. Answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis. We are your hosts Coulton cruise and rusty breaths slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. So today we’re going to go over a lighthearted topic, something that’s kind of fun, uh, and it’s going to be the topic of tumbling music. Like, uh, you know, what kind of music you like to listen to whenever you tumble. Um, maybe you don’t like listening to music at all, just tumbling atmosphere, fear. You’re in the drawing, you’re going to kind of hear a little bit about us and what we like to tumble to and what kind of pumps us up as soon as we hear it. Um, and uh, yeah, so it’s going to be kind of a short one, but it’s good. It’ll be fun.
Just last night after our classes, uh, during our privates, me and Colton both how to private. We’re, I have a playlist, it’s cleaned music and it’s just a motivational music. Some of it’s different. Uh, so one of the, it’s old, it’s new. So I it like colons private said it’d be like wrap one second and then go back to some old, the that she had never heard of her. She said that was like music whiplash for her.
It’s Bon Jovi. I Dunno what the heck she was talking about. If you’re a parent listening to invest, then you know, Brian Bon Jovi. I love it. But what if your kids are listening to this? You probably have no idea. Right, right, right. Uh, so back when I was in high school, my, I loved tumbling to like punk rock. Like, I don’t know if you guys know who AFI is, Afi, um, bullet for my Valentine, like, oh, this is probably considered emo step back in the day, 30 seconds to Mars. Like I love, I love tumbling that stuff. Upbeat, high, like maybe not screamer, but, um, uh, maybe a little bit of screaming in there sometime. Get that energy. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Uh, what about you? What kind of music you like listening?
Um, I’m rap music. Anything up beat though. Like, uh, about working hard.
Yeah. Pushing there. You know, there is that song. It’s like, ah, it ain’t, nobody can stop me now because I’m on my way. I can feel my, Rick, can I do that?
I was just going to let you keep going. I was, that was good. Yeah.
Yeah. No, yeah. None of a champion. Yeah. Heart of a champion. I don’t know if I’m going to get copyrighted or something like that. They got us thinking better than that. Anyway, that’s a song that pumps me up. I can feel my ring coming like we, eh, whether it was state or worlds, cause we competed in world as well. You know, you get a ring and how, I guess everybody kind of gets her ring. But, uh, I mean feeling it coming, like that’s, that’s at that moment, that’s where my mind goes. It’s like I’m working for a purpose. Uh, and so, uh, you know, that’s another one. It’s, it’s all kinds of different genres. But, um, I know you like, you like the rap hip hop stuff.
I do like the rap hip
hop and that’s what, it’s funny to see kids come in cause we tell them we want them to be comfortable. So if, especially if it’s in privates and we have the gym to ourselves, I’ll be like put on whatever it is that’s going to make you tumble your best. Oh my gosh. Just put it on. I don’t care at this point. As long as that’s what it takes for you to throw your scale. Um, and it’s interesting the music, some of these kids listen. Yeah, it is interesting. Now I had a private the other day where she, she was tumbling like she started off and she’s like, man, I can just tell it’s going to be a bad day for me as like, Hey, stop, let’s stop. Let’s re let’s rework this entire private start over. Um, let first of all go get your phone, put on some music and play whatever you like to listen to. And then from that moment on it like just the music made the difference. I wasn’t playing any music. It was all quiet in the gym. So maybe that had something to do with it.
There are those rare kids who just love quiet. Quiet. Yeah. The louder the music, the more it throws them off focus or,
or there’s always that moment where it’s like, okay, I’m, I’m gonna, I’m gonna stand here. I’m not going to tumble until like it comes to the chorus because that’s the part that bumps me up or it’s like, uh Oh song is ending. I got to wait for the next song together the next time. Or else it’s like that awkward time where you know there’s like no music playing whatsoever and then you go and tumble and it just, I dunno, I guess it gets in kids minds
just like the music. Some kids tumble really good just by themselves, but then some kids have to have somebody there tumbling with them to push them or motivate them to try harder.
And some kids really should be working on them by themselves and not working with the friends who keep their mind in the gutter.
Maria up unfocused or does every kid is different. And that’s one of the joys of this job. Absolutely. Finding what works for an athlete and really pushing for that
does, it becomes a challenge. It’s like, uh, you know, maybe maybe this music is going to work for this kid. Maybe uh, this atmosphere doesn’t work for this kid. Maybe it, maybe we got to try something else, something different. Um, and, and we’re really versatile here at justice timeline company and we want our athletes to be just as versatile. So where you’re comfortable doing something, make sure you’re not just staying in that, in that Rut and staying in that one direction. Try to step out and try new things and, and, uh, test yourself as a tumbler.
I’ve been having a lot of my longtime privates try to jump in some of our classes just to try to get that class environment. I mean, especially it’s still coach by me. They’re getting a lot of the same thing. But sometimes that’s what an athlete needs is a group environment to be motivated to try or throw a certain skill. Um, so why Colin’s that definitely get out of your comfort zone and try new things, see if something works for you and see if something doesn’t
well in our, in our classes, you know, it’s a completely different environment than it is in our privates. And I’ve, I’ve, um, uh, I’ve asked a few, a few of my privates actually to let’s, let’s try to do some classes and see how it goes. And they’re always like uncomfortable with it at first and then ended up loving it because our classes are like, even though there might be two classes going on at the same time, we all stretch, we all warm up together. Um, and then once we get to that breaking point where half the class isn’t doing the same warm ups, then we split. Um, but we go around in a circle, we tell each other our names, we tell each other about how our day is going. Uh, it’s that family environment and you know, it comes back to the music playing in the background.
And I know with our tiny is one day I walked in, uh, and Hannah had put on some Disney music and like, so our, how our, how our classes are kind of scheduled is tinies and beginners are always first usually. And then, um, then as we go through the night, it gets harder, harder, higher level athletes and, and that Disney music state on all night long. So we were listening to like frozen and Cinderella. Sometimes people like that. And it was wrong. It was just like a lighthearted time in the gym and it was, uh, it was a different feel and it was fun. It made it, I think it made fun for all the athletes that we were working with. Um, so, so when you’re out there tumbling and try different music, try different whatever, tried different things. Classes, try hard floor class. Nobody likes hard floors.
Listen, listen, I am a music. I love, uh, not all music. I play guitar. I seeing I’ve, I’ve done that pretty much my entire life. And, uh, so I’m like a fanatic for the art of music, playing instruments and stuff. And so I’ll go and put on my playlist of like classic rock and then everybody bashes me. Everyone gives me a hard time about it for the music. I like hear all about it. I bet. I bet every time I play something it’s like, ah, I guess I should skip that. Oh, I should skip that. And no one’s going to like that. I should give it, don’t rag on my music bro. But it’d come listen to it. It’s usually upbeat is, it is, it is. And, you know, it’s, it’s not negative or any way, like it’s, um, it’s just, I dunno, I don’t even listen to the lyrics.
Just listen to the music. It’s cool. I have attorney on our job. Yes. Yeah. And there’s, there’s, you know, every time that song comes on, I think everybody in the gym is like, Oh yeah, I know this song. This is a cool Bob dove, you know, so much higher. We living on a prayer. I’ve never heard of it before. Anyway. You know, I love music. Um, but whenever you’re here in our gym, we always have said it, we’ve heard us say it before this, we want this to be your second home. We want this to be where you’re comfortable and where you, you know, go to get those new skills. So that means if, like you said, he wants you to be comfortable. If you think the music is too loud, if it’s not loud enough, yeah. Let your coaches know the song, whatever it is, let us know and we will try to cater to you as much as possible.
There’s that new and imagine dragons song that’s out. Um, whatever it takes, whatever it takes. I have like, whenever that song comes on, I’ll go and I’ll turn it up probably a little bit too loud and rusty, like holy sneaks back over there and turns it down. He’s like, it’s too loud. Anyway, I love, I love tumbling and spotting to that hardcore music that pumps me up. Uh, and uh, heck, if you’re sitting in our lounge as a parent, you might even get to see me bust some moves as cringey as that is. Not really. I mean, maybe.
