Jeff R. Tucker - or "Tucker" to those who know him - is the CEO and founder of Global Sports Xtreme (GSX CrossFit) in Fort Worth, TX and he has a passion for teaching gymnastics, tumbling and gymnastics strength theory.


This is an extension of the CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Course that bridges the gap from training to sport. It is grounded in prerequisite strength, safe coaching and technique to produce powerful movement and efficiency in skill work. Attendees are given a global understanding of human movement based in the advanced application of gymnastics training, not only in other areas of CrossFit training but also in human movement in sport and in life.


The GSX facility located in Fort Worth, TX features a wide array of equipment and the required safety nets for training the advanced movements requested by the CrossFit community: in-ground trampolines, overhead suspension gear, ring trainers, matting, ropes, spring floors, rod floors, a tumbling pit, an air track and indoor and outdoor CrossFit training facilities. The now-legendary Hell's Half Acre will allow for both indoor and outdoor CrossFit activities.


Staff for this course will include but is not limited to: USGA certified coaches, acrobatic specialists and award winning gymnastic coaches who have competed withing the NCAA/USA/British National Teams as competitors within the sport of gymnastics. The coaching ratio will be 5:1, giving athletes a chance for a great deal of personal instruction in gymnastic theory.


This course has been custom developed to allow you to learn the following:

• Acrobatic skills: spatial awareness, body control with dynamic movements.
• Strap work: this is a silk style acrobatic work.
• Balance work: planche, hand balancing, stunting walking on hands.
• Mushroom work: bucket work and mushroom progressions.
• Tumbling: basic forward rolls to front flips, back flips, back handsprings.
• Trampoline work: fun stuff!
• Gymnastics ring work: performed on a set of USGA rings
• Bar variations: bar muscle-ups, kipping work, pull-overs.
• Gymnastic pit work: tumbling into the pit, front punches and double front flips (mini-tramp).


Whether you are a novice or accomplished CrossFit athlete, our coaching staff will teach you the necessary skills and drills for applying gymnastics elements to your own workouts and personal goals, but you will also walk away with the knowledge needed to be a better coach. Lectures will cover our current curriculum with practical sessions as a complement.


All the GSX coaches and head coach Jeff Tucker himself wish to offer you a true Texas welcome as they host a complimentary Saturday night cowboy brisket and barbeque with all the fixin's!
