Sports are in the spotlight right now not just in London but here at home, too.
One local gym says they're turning people away.
Call it the Olympic effect.
From the floor to the beam, the bars to the vault – budding Olympians at Michiana Gymnastics have their eye on the gold --.at the age of 5.
"He tumbles all the time, headstands, handstands" said Mary McCuish, who’s grandson is in the program.
Connor Taylor loves it. From flipping to tumbling, he can't get enough.
“You ask him what the names are of the boys on the Olympic team, he'll tell you who they are" said McCuish.
McCuish says it's been nonstop Olympic excitement in her house. Watching this sport has the entire family focused.
"He's turned his sister on to it now, and she's watched the Olympics with me as well, and now she's gonna start at the end of August."
There’s been such a spark of interest in this sport, they're actually turning people away from fall classes.
"It's been quite the whirlwind over the past few days," said Andy Poe.
Poe runs the gym and says the Olympic games give the sport some major exposure. Since everyone is bleeding gold from the success of the American team, his gym is at its peak of popularity.
“We have 3 lines, and sometimes all 3 lines are ringing and people are coming in the door,” said Poe. (Friday), we had 3 people behind the desk and it wasn't enough."
It goes beyond the gym.
Swimming sees the boom. Soccer feels it, too.
The better the U.S. does at a sport in the games, it seems the more people want to give it a try, hoping they'll be next on the podium.
And Poe isn't complaining - business is good, but he worries he can't keep up with the demand.
“It's a good problem to have, but its crazy at the same time.”
If you have a child at home who just can't sit still after watching the Olympics, sports instructors say take it slow.
And parents, don't buy new equipment or outfits until your child is ready to commit to that sport. That will save you money.
