The gymnastics balance beam has no specific size, you have low beams and high beams ranging from 5'' to 48'' or 4' high. Maybe if you were a little more precise as to which or which kind of beam I could help.

A starter beam, I personally think, shouldn't be off the ground. We call those floor beams at our gym because they are on the floor. I wouldn't put the beam on legs because if you are just starting you are going to want to train skills on a low beam before you take them to a high beam.
