Yep. No! your never to old to start gymnastics. but it may be difficult for you to do it at elite level, but who knows. the best person to ask would be a coach ---- Rather broad question. Which Gymnastic are you speaking of? Aristic (men or womans) Acrobatic, Rhythmic, Tumble/Tramp Gym, Group Gym. In Acro, Tumble Tramp, and Group gym age is less an issue. Group Gym has had squad members in their 80's. NOT KIDDING.

For competitive gymnastics it may be a little hard to start at that age, but if you're just looking for fun gymnastics its never to late to start. Competitive gymnastics is better when you start early, but if you have any kind of background in flipping sports, you may want to give it a try.

What age is too old to start learning gymnastics?

There is no age requirement, but children younger than 4 or 5 generally do not have enough control over their body to do gymnastics and teenagers older than 14 or 15 generally do not start gymnastics because a gymnasts body at that age is very well adjusted to gymnastics with flexibility and muscle. Most gymnasts "retire" at about 16 or 17 anyway, because their body is too "old" or is starting to wear out because of the harsh abuse from years of gymnastics. But, I know several people who have started gymnastics at 14 and are doing very well.
