“If You Can’t Get Out of It, Get Into It”: Pokemon Go Quotes Applied to/from Your Gymnast

We can’t deny it…Pokemon is back and it’s serious. It’s everywhere. Literally…everywhere and instead of everyone staying inside to play – it’s been taken outdoors.

And this week…it was in our gym…as a theme! Don’t worry, we didn’t have any cell phones on the floor, but this revolution of a game was too big to ignore and not be a part of in some way. After all, we are a children’s facility and that’s all the “kids are talking about these days.” (Let’s be honest, some grown ups, too!)

As a facility that caters to movement already without the use of devices for motivation; we wanted to incorporate this popular game in a creative way. What positive elements can we take away from this overnight phenomenon?

For your enjoyment and motivational words, here are a few quotes from Pokemon Go that can be applied to and from your little gymnast. “Pika-choose” your favorite!

“I might be little, but I won’t like it if you go easy on me!”

“Life is a serious battle, and you have to use the tools you’re given. It’s more important to master the cards you’re holding than to complain about the ones your opponents were dealt.”

“If you don’t struggle, you don’t improve.”

“I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevant. It is what you DO with the gift of Life that determines who you are.”

“Make your wonderful dream a reality, it will become your truth. If anyone can, it’s you.”

“Everyone loses sometimes. You can’t let that get you down.”
