About The Hosts
Jessica O’Beirne‘s mission in life is to make gymnastics as popular as the NFL. No, seriously, she’s not kidding. She is the creator and producer of the show. When she is not editing audio or scheduling guests, she also works tirelessly to assure that gymnasts know they can continue to do the sport throughout their lifetime for health, fitness and fun over at masters-gymnastics.com. In partnership with Gymnastike’s Adult channel, Masters Gymnastics, maintains a list of every adult gymnastics class and masters meet in the world.

Dvora Meyers was raised in the wilds of Brooklyn (way before the hipsters colonized) yet still can pronounce most of her Rs. Like all Orthodox Jewish yeshiva girls, she did recreational gymnastics for several years but with the fervor of one much more talented, and memorized all of the books about the sport contained in the public library. They numbered three.
Which is why Dvora went onto write a gymnastics book of her own. Due to a catastrophic failure at compartmentalization, she published Heresy on the HighBeam: Confessions of an Unbalanced Jewess, an ode to obsessive gymnastics fandom laced with high doses of Judaism. (As Forrest Gump once sagely said, gymnastics and Judaism go together like peas and carrots.) She also writes about arts, culture, and religion for a variety of publications including The New York Times, Slate, Jezebel, and The Atlantic.
She is also available to breakdance at weddings and bar mitzvahs. Just ask.
