Harlem Invitational Proudly Sponsored by GK Gymnastics Leotards

Throughout our 30+ years of service to gymnasts worldwide, GK has proudly donated, and continues to donate, millions of dollars in leotards and gymnastics accessories to the industry. This dedication to give back is not one that we take lightly. It is twofold a responsibility and an honor, for without organizations such as USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics, TOPS, East/West Championships, and smaller organization such as the Wendy Hilliard Foundation, the sport that we dedicate our lives to day in and day out would cease to exist, and so would we.

Harlem Gymnastic's Purple GK LeotardHarlem Gymast in GK Leotard for Wendy Hilliard Foundation

One of our most recent and prized contributions to gymnastics went to a Hall of Fame Rhythmic Gymnast named Wendy Hilliard. Wendy operates a not for profit gym, The Wendy Hilliard Foundation “WHF”, that provides free weekly gymnastics classes to New York inner city youth. Their website states, "As the first African-American to represent the U.S. in rhythmic gymnastics, Wendy Hilliard's goal was to create a program that provided an opportunity for more minorities to experience her sport. After serving over 10,000 participants the Wendy Hilliard Foundation has established an incredible track record of providing quality programming for people of all ages and abilities in the sport of gymnastics." She has even taken her athletes to the Junior Olympic National Championships, where they consistently won top honors and earned first place finishes. The WHF lady gymnasts are pictured above with GK Business Development Specialist, Erin Gettle.

This year, GK designed and donated a beautiful Imperial Purple Mystique 3/4 Sleeve Gymnastics Leotard 3457 to Wendy Hilliard's Harlem gymnasts. These leos, adorned with Silver Hologram Sequinz in a lively floral pattern, united the team at their own Harlem Invitational, where athletes competed in Rhythmic Gymnastics, Artistic Gymnastics and Trampoline and Tumbling. Most of the competing teams came from New York, but Harlem was also able to pull in some teams from New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts for this well-organized and well-received event.

The WHF guys wore a White Nylon/Spandex Wrap Around Men's Gymnastics Competition Shirt 1853 with Black and Purple Nylon/Spandex style lines along the shoulders and under the arms, and an over-sized Harlem Invitational embroidered logo on the front. Our men's competition shirts feature a boy cut leg for maximum comfort and support. GK also supplied the Harlem boys with a Men's Gymnastics Long Short 1818, in Black Nylon/Spandex.

As you can see from the photos above, the day wasn't all work and competition. It was also a celebration, of sorts, where the community gathered to honor all of the young gymnasts, their dedication and achievements, and to enjoy the day. The day was made possible through sponsorship from GK, TD Bank, Premier Physical Therapy & Wellness, Whole Foods and Aquafina. Each sponsor had something different to contribute. Thanks to Whole Foods, the coaches and judges enjoyed a delicious lunch, and many of the adults took advantage of Massage by Marta. Best of all, admission was free. The Wendy Hilliard Foundation ended the event with a 2 hour showcase of different groups from their organization putting on group and individual special performances.

If you missed the Harlem Invitational this year, it's definitely worth marking your calendar for 2015. Until then, you can be proud to shop the brand that supports all facets of gymnastics, GK.

Olympus Tops Gymnasts, A Distinguished Team In Luxurious Purple Leotards

We all love purple! And what better color to distinguish these young gymnasts from Olympus Tops Gymnastics in Sandy, UT than a tone that combines the energy of red with the calm of blue. A gemologist will tell you that purple is the color of good judgement, while a priest might say it's the color of spirituality. Either way, it's a color that represents balance - hot and cold, loud and subtle. You might say that for the Olympus Tops gymnasts, it represents the ability to perform a grueling gymnastics routine in practice and to reflect, afterwards, on the dynamics of the skill. With that said, having qualities of both warm and cool tones, pairing purple with another color presents a challenge at times. Olympus School of Gymnastics got it right, though, and they are stunning!

GK 3/4 Sleeve Purple Leo on Olympus Tops Gymnasts

Photo compliments of Andrea Hanks Photography

Set out to satisfy their purple passion, Olympus Tops paired the shimmering Purple Mystique on their 3/4 sleeve leotard with White Sparkle Hologram for contrast and Black Nylon/Spandex as a subtle accent. The selected colors merge to create a fantastic woven side design that shapes and elongates Olympus Tops' athletic physique. That same pattern gives way to a heart shaped back to emphasize the gymnasts' youthful spirit. Since there's no luxury in competition leotards without jewels, Olympus Tops added both Lavender and Brilliance SWARVOSKI ELEMENTS throughout the sleeves and along the intricate style and v neck lines, illuminating this team to stardom.

Think you have what it takes to tackle a purple leotard? Test your design skills by logging in and personalizing your favorite gymnastics leotard style from our Special Order Design Studio. Hurry. Your destiny leotard awaits you.

More of our Favorite Gymnastics Leotards From The WOGA Classic

Wow! There were so many fabulous designs at the WOGA Classic this year that we just can't stop showing them off! Ribbon designs seem to be very popular, and the talented teams that they represent have come up with some amazing ways to make the designs their own. Below, you'll find Northwest Kids gymnasts and Metroplex gymnasts, both from Texas, posing at the event in their creative versions of our special order long sleeve leotards.

Northwest Kids gymnasts are wearing a custom, asymmetrical competitive leotard composed of diagonal fabric variations in our textured Black Slither Hologram, our shiny Red Mystique, and Black Mesh adorned in sparkling Ruby and Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. But that's not all! This fashion forward ensemble also consists of several creative design elements that give the girls a radiant edge on their competition. The SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that adorn the right mesh sleeve carry over to the body where they also enhance the already shimmering mystique, and to the Black Slither. In addition, Black SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS line the Red Mystique on both the body and the left arm where the combined elements create a ribbon effect that wraps around a sleeve of Natural Mesh, creating an artistic illusion. Together with the beautiful Columbia Blue Sparkle applique design, these elements create a masterpiece long sleeve gymnastics leotard.

Metroplex gymnasts, shown below, also look great in their competitive long sleeve leotards that they special ordered from our Wrapping Ribbon Gymnastics Leotard 9566. This boat neck leo features our Black Sparkle fabric and contrasting Lavender Ice Mystique sleeves. The ribbon pattern that gives this beautiful competitive leotard so much definition is a complex variation of lines in Silver Mystique, Lavender Ice Mystique, Imperial Purple Mystique and Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. The back of this leotard is what really characterizes the Metroplex style, though! It features an Imperial Purple scoop back neckline and an oversized, Lavender Ice Mystique M, outlined in Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. It's absolutely gorgeous!

Try your hand at creating beautiful gymnastics apparel to reveal at your next competition. All you have to do is view and select one of our Long Sleeve Leotards, and specify your color combinations. Your athletes will look and feel fabulous, and you'll be glowing with pride.

Fond Memories of the Pink Invitational

As the Pink Invitational came to a close on Sunday, Feb.23, GK and all the participants and sponsors gathered their fondest memories to store away until next year. For some of the gymnasts, those memories will include award winning medals, high scores, and team bonding moments. Others will hold dear to them the GK and SWAROVSKI leotards or Mancino mats that they won in our raffles and through fundraising efforts. Some will remember their own personal efforts to aid women effected by breast cancer. Through all the gymnastics events that day, the designing, planning, producing, promoting and enjoyment, here's a few of moments we feel are worth sharing from the Pink Invitational.

First and foremost, the Pink Invitational GK leotard! The Berry Mystique silhouette looked stunning on every single one of the gymnasts who competed at the meet last weekend. A true testament to the success that the competing gyms have had in training their athletes in the skill of gymnastics and in the skill of life, these Pink leotards carry with them a reminder that no matter where your talent lies, we're all united as one to keep women, both young and wise, alive and active, and free of cancer. Many of they gymnastics teams at the meet were really creative with their Pink leos, and dressed them up with anything from tutus to crazy socks and hair pieces.

the cause and having fun!

In addition, the custom designed Unite for HER leotards, and the GK/SWAROVSKI couture leo that was auctioned and raffled at the Pink Invitational are a huge source of pride for GK. All of the black tank leotards that were auctioned at the event were donated to the Bravado art auction by GK, and designed and signed by industry professionals or gymnasts to generate funds for the cause. As you can see from the display below, they turned out fabulous! One of our favorites is the Aly Raisman Unite for HER leo, featuring a jeweled Girls Rule slogan and crown, and an Aly Raisman signature on the bottom right corner. Then we have the GK/SWAROVSKI compulsory leo that is absolutely gorgeous! It's a Black Mystique, long sleeve leotard with an asymmetrical Black Mesh neckline, and it's covered in thousands of Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS of various colors. The lucky winner of this raffle is anxiously awaiting her SWAROVSKI leo, worth over $5,000, to arrive in the mail, so stay alert for more details about her reaction to winning. If you missed out on this fabulous competitive leotard, we have a similar style available for purchase on the GK website, the Charm SWAROVSKI Leotard 1005 from our Ultimate Brilliance Collection. It's not exactly the same as our compulsory leo, but it's definitely worth a look.

At last, the privilege of partnering with such amazing organizations as the AJS Pancott Gymnastics team and Mancino Mat Co. will always be remember with great pride. A shared dedication to helping the community and raising awareness for humanity bonds us in a relationship that is both rewarding and essential. We can't thank them enough for all they've done, and for inviting us to participate in the cause. Below, you'll find our Marketing Manager, Kelly Christman, with breast cancer survivor and Founder of Unite for HER, Sue Weldon, drawing the winning raffle ticket for the GK SWAROVSKI long sleeve leotard, and receiving an award for GK's participation in the Pink Invitational.

Bermuda National Team Competes in Under Armour Leotards

What a delight is was to see the Bermuda National Senior team from St. David's wearing Under Armour at the IGI Chicago Style Gymnastics Meet this February! The athletes on the Bermuda National Team are a distinguished group of athletes from Bermuda, selected to train in the Bermuda Gymnastics Association's national training center to compete at international competitions around the globe. The IGI Meet is a Nastia Liukin qualifier meet, and it's also the largest women's national invitational gymnastics meet in the world, so it's really no surprise that our GK Representatives, Wendy and Judy, would find them competing on this day. It was quite an honor, though! Other meet locations on their itinerary for this year include Bermuda, Scottland, Brazil, China and Mexico. Their dedication to the sport of gymnastics literally takes them around the world, and they travel in style, in Under Armour!

Bermuda gymnasts shown above proudly unite in their Under Armour Strength 6300 leotards. This v neck tank gymnastics leotard features a sporty design in Steel Mystique and Black Nylon/Spandex. The side panels are adorned with Black Techmesh that keeps the girls cool and comfortable, and Berry Mystique symmetrical wave side panels and piping to give them a feminine look. Along with the Under Armour Tank Leotard styles displayed at the GK booth by Wendy and Judy, as shown on the right, Under Armour competitive leotards are also available online.

Whether you're competing at an international invitational on the Historic Navy Pier in Chicago or at a small meet in your home town, be prepared beyond your practiced skills. Always look and feel your best in Under Armour.

Twisters Gymnastics Prepares to Compete in GK Leotards

Twisters Gymnastics of the Twisters Sports Center in Mountain View, California prepares to compete in the GK sponsored The Spirit of the Flame Challenge in Santa Clara, CA this year in their GK 3/4 sleeve leotards. The Sports Center, their home gym, takes great pride in their gymnastics team, stating, "Gymnastics is considered by many as the foundation of all sports because it enhances a child’s strength, coordination, and flexibility. Studies have shown that it also improves social and cognitive skills that are so important to your child’s growth. Twisters makes it fun to grow and learn by providing positive and safe instruction taught by qualified coaches who are safety certified." Twisters switched to GK this year and they are thrilled with their new competitive leotards and warm-up apparel.

The Twisters ordered all of their gymnastics competition apparel online, using our Special Order Design Studio. This allowed them to visualize their color selections as they placed their order, and to see all of the available options in jewels, embroidery and fabrics. In doing so, they ordered an Abstract Lightning gymnastics Leotard 9575 in Black Mystique, Orangeade Sparkle, Seaglass Sparkle and Black Mesh. This colorful, asymmetrical v neck leotard from our Special Order Design Studio boasts shimmering fabrics, inspiring zig-zag design lines, and brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that accent the leo design and absorb the transparency of the left mesh sleeve. The bold combination is striking!

They coordinated their warm-up suits with their competitive leotards by incorporating the Seaglass Sparkle into their Black DryTech Classic Gymnastics Warm-Up Jacket 8756 and Fitted Warm-Up Gymnastics Capris 8787. The jacket is a form-fitting style, featuring contrasting Seaglass Sparkle side panels and the Twister's name spelled out in beautiful Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. The matching, fitted capris feature a low-rise fold over waist band for added comfort. Another great options for cooler temperatures is the GK Low-Rise Gymnastics Warm-Up Pants 8731, as seen on your right. This gymnastics pant offers the same great features as the capri, but with more coverage.

Twisters will be competing later this month at The Spirit of The Flame Challenge, the weekend of Feb. 28, in Santa Clara, CA. This meet is sponsored by GK and each participant will receive a custom GK sublimation leotard as their gift. Stay posted for further information.

For this event, we were able to provide not one, but two leotards for the competitors. We designed one leotard as a gift for all of the participants, and a second one as a gift for the top four finalists in all levels, age groups and events. Wow! What a honor!

Color Games Gymnasts Compete in GK Tank Leotards at Rutgers University

This past weekend, Rutgers University hosted their annual Color Games gymnastics competition as a fundraiser for the Rutgers Gymnastics team.  The Color Games is a fun, invitational meet for USA Gymnastics Excel & Levels 2 through Level 10 athletes.  Over the past several years, gymnasts have competed in their team apparel, however, this year the event coordinators worked with GK Sales Representative Colleen Patton and decided on a change that made the meet more exciting, colorful and fun for everyone.  All participating athletes were provided and competed in the Color Games meet wearing GK's Mystique Low Scoop Neck Gymnastics Tank Leotard 3619.

TNT Gymanstics Athletes at Color Games in GK Gymnastics LeotardsRutgers selected these girls leotards in popular GK colors Sangria, Merlot, Sunshine and Lime.  Instead of competing for their individual club, the girls were all randomly assigned to a color and competed for their color team throughout the day.  The twist gives the participants an opportunity to meet other gymnasts from the area who were part of their team for the day.  The girls had a lot of fun naming their team at each session.  Some of the most popular team names chosen were "Green Machine," "Orange Crush," and "Pink Flamingos."  We're considering these as new fabric names!!

The participants featured to the right are Level 8 gymnasts from TNT Gymnastics in Maple Shade, NJ.  Thanks for showing off your GK style, girls.

If you like the look that the gymnasts wore at the Color Games, check out GK's selection of Basic Gymnastics Leotards for Girls.  But, if you want to mix things up a bit, check out the latest styles of In Stock Leotards from our annual catalog.
