CONTEST – Win An Autographed Leo & Copy of “Courage to Soar” by Simone Biles!

If you’ve been following us Instagram (which you totally should be!), then you know all about our weekly Freebie Friday contests where we give away all sorts of goodies like leos signed by your favorite gymnasts. This week, we’re doing something a little different!

Simone Biles is an Olympic Gold Medalist and the most decorated gymnast in America. Last November, Simone released her autobiography, “Courage to Soar – A Body in Motion, a Life in Balance.” The books gives a never-before-seen look at Simone’s life growing up and even a look behind the scenes of her 2016 Olympic Games experience.

Simone’s autobiography is sure to be an inspiration to fans and aspiring athletes alike. That’s why we’re giving away an autographed copy AND a signed leotard from the Simone Biles Signature Collection for this week’s Freebie Friday!


Step 1 – Follow @gkelite on Instagram.

Step 2 – Post a picture or video of yourself on Instagram reading your favorite book in a gymnastics-related situation (on the beam, passed out on the mat after a brutal practice, while doing a handstand, etc.)

Step 3 – Tag your picture with #readlikeagymnast and #gkelite.


This contest will run until 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, January 19th. A winner will be announced on Friday, January 20th.
